More About the Contigo Madison Water Bottle
Contigo’s design prioritizes hydration, pure and simple. Happily, Contigo delivers. This leak-resistant bottle works using just one hand: no more two-handed lid fumbling when driving or working out. The perfectly positioned, spill-proof valve needs only a nudge of the index finger to open, and it closes tight when released. The built-in carabineer fastens securely to bags, and the bottle fits most standard cup holders. In addition to being BPA free, the bottle’s Tritan™ material makes it highly resistant to damage, odor, and stain. With the exception of very young children, the Contigo Madison Water Bottle makes good company for most ages. As the official water bottle of the Synergy Soccer Club, the bottle keeps up with young athletes and coaches alike. Younger children can enjoy the same design in a smaller package with the Contigo Kids 14 oz Trekker Cup.

Contigo AUTOSEAL® water bottles range in color and size (14 to 32 oz). Stow away a credit card in the Kangaroo model’s storage compartment ($12.99), reduce condensation with the double-walled Martinque ($12.99), or upgrade to the Dalton’s stainless steel finish ($14.99).
Other Front Runners
Comparable BPA-free water bottles range from 7.95 – $17.00, jumping upward of $20.00 for stainless steel and aluminum. A 32 oz Nalgene Tritan™ Wide-Mouth Everyday Bottle ($10.20), while good value, shares none of the Contigo form and function. The 25 oz Camelbak Better Bottle ($15.00) boasts a straw-like spout and handy clip, but is difficult to clean and lacks ventilation.
You Can’t Beat Affordable and Hassle-Free
For $9.99, the Contigo Madison Water Bottle with AUTOSEAL® combines quality and innovation with ease . . . for a price that’s equally easy on the pocketbook. Available directly from the manufacturer and carried by local coffee shops and retail giants alike, this is probably the last water bottle you’ll buy.
Personally, I have two.
