A water bottle in Fit and Well Atlanta Belle teal — how could I resist?
That’s how I got sucked into trying the latest water bottle trend. I first came across the trendy little bkr bottle in an email from one of my favorite Atlanta workout wear/accessory trendsetters Atlanta Activewear.
I was intrigued by the fact that this sturdy, 500 mL, glass bottle has a silicone sleeve, which comes in practically every shade of the rainbow. (Click here for more about the specs of this environmentally friendly bottle. ) Oh, and did I mention that the likes of Natalie Portman and Reese Witherspoon have been spotted with their own bkrs?
So I decided to spend the $28 and see what the hype was all about. After a few weeks of using my bkr, here’s what I’ve concluded — it's not a great fit for me. Although I love the teal color (which BTW, doesn’t seem to be available on the website at the moment), the price is a bit steep. Also, it’s a little heavy, given the weight of the glass plus the water.
So, adorbs — but I think I’m just as happy with a cheap one-liter SmartWater bottle.
