Polar Bottle Modifies Design

Published May 4, 2010

BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)—Product Architects, Inc., manufacturer of the Polar Bottle, has modified the design of its popular insulated water bottles to improve their squeezability.

The patented Polar Bottle features an insulating layer between two walls of plastic. Recently the company redesigned the bottle’s grip shape and thinned the walls. The inner plastic layer is now 13 percent thinner and the outer layer is reduced by 15 percent. All of these changes make the bottles easier to grab and squeeze, which is important to people reaching for a quick sip while navigating the road or trail.

“Outstanding customer service is very important to us,” said Judy Amabile, president of Product Architects. “So when people said our bottles could be easier to squeeze, we listened and made these design enhancements. I’m pleased to say that we took a great product and made it even better.”

The design changes resulted in lighter, brighter, more squeezable bottles without sacrificing insulating power. The Polar Bottle still keeps liquids cool twice as long as regular water bottles.

BPA- and Phthalate-free, the Polar Bottle fits standard bike water bottle cages and features a convenient, removable carrying strap. It is the perfect portable hydration solution for cyclists, runners, hikers, skiers and other sports enthusiasts in addition to students, moms, commuters or anyone else on the go. Polar Bottle users will appreciate the bottle’s new easy squeeze.

All Polar Bottle shipments today feature bottles with the new thin-wall design. Product Architects has discontinued the thicker bottle design.
