Shake and drink.
Member Name: sympatic
Advantages: No leaks and well made
Disadvantages: Drinking nozzle is quite wide
I spend a decent amount of time in the gym, in fact I'm just back from a work out, also my job keeps me very active and so either after a work out or a practice session I will often have a shake to help replenish my energy levels and help with muscle development and the recovery from the exertion and the maxitone shaker at under a fiver is a great container to mix up the shake and drink from as well. I see these a lot in the gym especially amongst the guys who are going for muscle mass however they are also popular with some of the people at work. What I like is that when not in use the lid forms a secure seal so there is no leakage into my bag when travelling home from the gym or work.
It is a clear plastic body with a red top and it holds up to 500ml of liquid which when full makes it heavy enough that you would not want to exercise while holding it, this is not the sort of bottle I would take on a run with me as it would not be comfortable to hold for any length of time. You can measure off exactly the amount of liquid to powder that you are mixing as the measurements are clearly labelled alongside the bottle and the measures are in both ml and ounces.
The shaker itself has a criss cross mesh disc pattern across the top of it and there is a lid that fits over the mouth nozzle to prevent any leakage. It is very secure when shaking the bottle to mix the contents and I have never had any problems with filling it or mixing my drinks in it. While in use it is also totally secure as long as you replace the lid securely. It is also very easy to clean after use. The drinking aperture is quite wide and delivers a steady flow of liquid so you do not want to tip it up too much otherwise too much comes out and can cause a mess.
This is a well made product, the plastic is nice and thick and it is pretty robust, certainly it does the job it is supposed to very well indeed and I would certainly recommend it.
Summary: Good affordable product
