    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.

                      Are the camelbacks easy to open with your mouth?

                        NL fitted my Camelback with a strap that allows me to hang the bottle off of my wheelchair. My chair is all black, you don't see it at all. I am a C6/7 complete quad and could, if pressed, unscrew the top (if it hasn't been tightened too much) and fill it from the water purifier tap in the kitchen.

                        All the best,

                        Just saw your post asking if the Camelback is easy to open with your mouth. Answer: Not unless you have a mouth like Bowser (see below).

                        Depending on your ability, you can hook a thumb in the "handle" and unscrew the top if it hasn't been tightened too much)

                          The drinking spout on a Camelbak is pretty easy to rotate to the open position just by giving it a nudge or pull with your teeth. You can also add this hands free adapter to your bottle.

                          You might want to add this too as it will clip the tube to your clothing, keeping it within reach easily.

                            I think "ECUrach85" was originally asking about being able to fill the bottle by herself. See my post above.
