Keeping hydrated and finding a closed cup that is not a two handled beaker.
The lid design might not work for some.
"Great for hydration, but the lid design wasn’t good for Neil, as it kept spilling juice."
Unpacking the cup was straight forward, it comes in a cardboard box.
OVERALL IMPRESSION (after2 weeks)
The first thing you notice it’s how big the cup is (1 pint) , which is great because Neil is often dehydrated. The cup has also a good grip, and the coloured lid makes it easier to see. Also the lid has a little spout to facilitate mouth support, and a hollow part to accommodate the nose whilst drinking. This means you can tip it with ease even if you are lying in bed. The lid and the spout prevent spillage to an extent, but if Neil tips it a little too much juice will overflow.
MY FINAL VERDICT (after 3 months)
The cup is large, so it’s great for hydration, but some may find it heavy to lift. However the good grip might help. Unfortunately the lid design wasn’t good for Neil, as it kept spilling juice.
