Well, at first I have to admit that I did not like it. Not one little bit. The straw end did not fit on the little part it was supposed to. And then there was the straw. It was too long, so when I screwed the top on, it just popped off and the lid would not screw on anyway. The bottle I have IS the Coldest Water bottle, too, so I was very perplexed as to why it would not work. Well, I tried several times and was ready to give up. However, I thought since the end of it is just a bit too long, why not just cut some of the end off for it to fit?! I had nothing to lose as the tip was already stretched out and honestly, a little ragged from having tried too many times to shove it on there. Well, I snipped off about 1/2 of an inch from the straw and WOW, WHAT A DIFFERENCE IT MADE! Not only did it now just slip right on to the part it was supposed to, it does not fall off anymore. And the straw now fits into the bottle without bending. Also, the lid now screws on and does not leak. WHEW! I love my coldest water bottle to pieces, and have gotten lots of compliments on it, but was tired of having to unscrew the lid each time I wanted a drink. Now I don’t have to! I will keep the other lid for when I am traveling to keep my extra water cold and leak proof. I do have a bit of a problem bumping my nose on the handle part occasionally, however it is not enough of a problem for me to give it up. NOPE, you cannot have it back!
