Looking at the mountain of vacuum water bottles available today with your logo, there is one that delivers the best "bang for your buck". It is the 17 oz. Force Bottle. It is a premium metal bottle with a classic and attractive shape, best-in-class insulation, and extensive decoration capabilities to make your brand stand out.
Looking first at the shape of the Force Bottle, it is an attractive design that screams “retail”. The shape is vaguely reminiscent of a plastic soda or water bottle, down to the divots in the feet of the bottle and the small ridges in the cap. Unlike other similar bottles we reviewed and tested before crowining the Force with our “Best” designation, the bottom of this bottle and the cap have shiny metal accents to add extra visual interest. Also unlike other similar bottles, the lid screws on and off very easily, and locks tight to prevent leaks and spills. Because of its impressive insulation, this bottle is a bit heavier than expected (packaged, it weights in just under 15 oz). That extra weight helps provide stability to the bottle, especially when liquid is added. The neck of the Force Bottle is large enough to add small ice cubes or crushed ice, but, as we’ll discuss later, it’s probably unnecessary. If the shape of the bottle looks familiar to you, it should. It has some similar features to S’Well bottles, which are a huge hit in retail and via direct marketing channels and command prices between $35-45 each.
While we at the Top 3 Team love the look and feel of the 17 oz Force Bottle, it’s the performance that puts it in its own class of drinkware. The Force Bottle is constructed with double-wall 18/8 stainless steel, with vacuum-sealed and copper-lined insulation. This has two important benefits for you and your customers. First, the Force Bottle is suitable for either hot or cold beverages, and the rugged insulation will keep the drinkers hand at a comfortable temperature. Second, those drinks will stay at their ideal drinking temperature for a long time. The factory rating on the 17 oz Force Bottle states it will keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for 12 hours. Our own testing was very similar. Because of that, adding ice to an already cold drink is entirely unnecessary. Part of the Force Bottle’s impressive insulation has to do with the cap mentioned earlier. In addition to also being stainless steel, the cap of this bottle is also insulated, a huge plus and proof of extremely thoughtful design. It’s also worth noting the inside of the cap has a small silicone ring, which not only helps create a water-tight seal, but also prevents wear and tear on the lip of the bottle with regular use.
At this price, we would expect a drinkware vessel to have great branding possibilities, and again, the Force Bottle delivers. It is available in classic stainless, as well as a wide range of corporate friendly and wild colors in a mixture of matte and gloss finishes. The imprint area is fairly substantial (up to 3.75" H x 8.25" W as a wrap). In addition to standard silkscreen imprinting, trendy tone-on-tone ink and glitter-infused “glitz” ink are both available to compliment your branding and add extra visual interest. The decorating capabilities make this a great option for gift shops or point-of-purchase sales, where the “premium” price point for this type of bottle has already been established.
While not a drawback, it is important to note the care instructions for this bottle. Like any other vacuum-sealed drinking vessel, the Force Bottle is not dishwasher-safe, and because it is metal, it cannot be microwaved. Hand washing is highly recommended to protect both the insulation and the finish/decoration of this bottle, and its neck wide enough for a standard bottle/mug brush.
