      Hi Dawn,

      Sorry for the delay! My life has been pretty hectic recently. I actually don't have any edits for you, though. Nice work! It wouldn't hurt to have a picture or two just to show how the bottle held up over time, but this is completely optional.

      Jeff

As long as there is no water in it, I had no problems getting it through security the two times I've flown this test period. Not having to pay $3-4 US for bottled water at an airport is fabulous!!

      > This product works exactly like it says it does. I really like it and will continue to use it every day until the filter wears out and then I will buy a new filter and continue to use it.

      > It takes the chlorine taste out of water.
