Rated 5 out of 5 by Brean Picture might not be accurate (As is the title "Glass Eco Water Bottle"...)
5 stars because, thus far, it seems to do its purpose.
The picture might not be accurate simply because my plastic cap wasn't blue, it was pink. A very pale pink- think bubblegum or that stomach medicine. Actually, I personally was pleased with not receiving blue. But I understand that not everybody will like the change in color, so I'm just giving a heads-up.
Biggest con for me-- Mine were Lixit brand. (no stickers on them, but the packaging they came in said Lixit) I'm not necessarily against Lixit, but I thought there was some mistake. I passed over another Lixit glass water bottle because it got awful reviews! Nowhere did I see ANY indication that these were any particular brand. All it says is "Glass Eco Water Bottle".
I ordered three 8-ounce bottles. They are pretty heavy, and aren't going to break easily (knock on wood I didn't just jinx that) I screw on the lids until they feel secure, and they're a little difficult to get back off again. Those lids aren't going anywhere.
They do drip a little bit. I make sure to test the opening to make sure water is coming out. I don't even know if I need to test it, but I've heard people say you need to or else water won't come out so I take no chances. (Something about getting the air bubbles out of the tube.)
I don't fill mine up very far, probably less than 3oz. It helps me to remember to get my hamster water at least every couple days.
My hamster is in a tank, and as I said these are heavy. I'm a little afraid of them falling. At first I had them taped to the corners of his tank, but they still started falling. I now use extra-strength velcro, but they're still pretty heavy even though they're less than half full. They haven't fallen, but they do tip.
They do come with clips. A clip at each end of a long spring, so it should attach fairly easily to most wire cages. I wouldn't recommend this bottle for wire cages that are 1/4 inch bar spacing. I've tried regular bottles and wire-attachments on those, and it's just a headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tinct Works well, did not get chewed through
Our chinchilla chewed through the plastic tops of several water bottles, but this one has an extra hard/thick cap that is working well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bunny2013 The best water bottle I've found so far.
I've tried many different water bottles. The plastic ones grow algae and I worry about leaching from the plastic. The Eco Bottle nozzle seems to last the longest without leaking and is easy to clean.
