Flexible, packable water bottle. A water bottle that adapts with you—whether it's the flexible, space-saving and packable design, the ease of cleaning, or the ability to add a backcountry-ready filter, the Meta Bottle is a water bottle that adapts to meet your everyday hydration needs from the city to the trail. Simple to clean, just unscrew bottle halves, both are dishwasher safe. Packs into itself to save space. BPA-free. Made in Ireland.
Had a good experience using this bottle on a camping trip last year. Worked great, way better than boiling water all the time. However, when I came to use it again this year, the water doesn't pass through the filter. I only filled it 30-40 times, so it should have a little more life in it. Not so good for the occasional camper, if it will cost $40 to replace the filter each time...
I thought I'd found the perfect bottle, as I wanted somewhere between 500ml-1L, and wanted something with only a few components so it would be easy to put in the dishwasher regularly. For some reason after the first dishwash (on the top shelf) the lower section developed brown patches, and so I instead started to hand rinse it and leave to air overnight. Now it has started to smell and make the water taste strange. I do like the colour and size of this bottle, but I can no longer bring myself to drink from it daily.
I've used this winter camping, where it stays in my sleeping bag to prevent freezing (in a zipper lock bag as a backup). No leaks. I can unscrew the top and use the bottom or top as a wine cup camping or on hut trips. It doesn't pop out of the side pockets of my backpack like a rigid bottle does.
