    Looking for a good water bottle for quad hands

    Im trying to be more independent but I can't even fill up my own water bottle because I cant open the top. Any ideas?

    My daughter also uses a Sigg.
    This is a little overkill for her but most days she likes this:

    Well I have a top I can't screw off or bite to loosen but I like th pop top. Easy to drink laying in bed. Isn't a sigg hard to drink while in bed?

    I use this for tea but it would work for water. I use my chin to pop open (and close) the top. It has a great seal. I love it because I can unscrew it with my teeth and make my own tea using my Cuisanart Kuerig make my own tea.

    Have you thought about a Camelbak? It can fit on the back of your chair like a backpack and you would only have to fill it once a day if you bought one with a big enough capacity.

    Something like this is what I mean

    If looking for just drinking in bed i just have a 2litre jug sitting on my chair next to my bed with a 2ft tubing that i can grab and drink away. i also have an over the bed table i could sit it on but prefer on chair.

    ps.sorry about the big pic not sure how that happened

    Another bottle i use everyday is on of these decor ones,thet have the pop top for drinking and the lid pops off for filling.Added bonus is if i drop it i can pick it up by the"loop" that keeps the top attached to the bottle with one off my grabers or hook sticks.

    These work perfect. Thumb through the loop and a bite valve so no leaking. Be sure to also get the bottle brush kit to clean it.
