I recently was asked to test the Lifefactory's ecological water bottle made out of glass and covered by a cute silicone sleeve (many people might know this brand better for their glass bottles for feeding babies). I was really excited since so many celebrities such as Jessica Alba and Reese Witherspoon have been spotted using this bottle out and about in LA. Obviously it was heavier than a plastic bottle, but not much more than a metal one. What was great about it is that fact that glass keeps the water tasting good all day long - unlike plastic bottles. So by far I have been very happy with the bottle, but the big test is going to be this weekend when the family hits Yosemite and weather might soar to 100F (38c).
I'm going to hook up the bottle with a metal clip to the backpack, and as the bottle has a screw cap it should be easy to grab on the go. My other secret weapons for the hike (which frankly with 2-year old twins might end up being rather short and be breathtaking mainly because I might need to carry one child) are my new cute little trekking shoes (what a bargain from Land's End for $10) and a handful of delicious Clif bars (with flavours such as chocolate and peanut butter the kiddies also like them and they won't take that much space in the backpack amongst the diapers, wipes etc).
So I hope our weekend will be a lot of fun and that everyone else has some cool plans for this holiday weekend. Happy Friday everyone!
