EASY TO CLEAN

Unscrews at both ends for easy cleaning.  The bottle body is also dishwasher safe.

WON'T ROLL AWAY 
Square shape means it won't roll away if dropped.

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
If you are unhappy with your Square for whatever reason at any time, or anything breaks, we will give you a full refund or replace any part that needs replacing. No questions asked. Forever.

MULTIPLE COLOR OPTIONS

NO METALLIC AFTERTASTE
Neck is lined with a BPA-free plastic so your water tastes fresh.

ERGONOMIC SHAPE
Fits perfectly in your hand.  And threadless neck ensures water won't dribble out the side of your mouth.

FITS INTO CUP HOLDERS
Compact design fits snugly into almost every car cup holder.

LEAK PROOF

Both top & bottom seal with thick rubber washers.  They use bayonet locks to click into place so caps won't come accidentally unscrewed.

PRECISION ENGINEERING 
The Square is designed from 16 different parts and requires 65 separate steps to manufacture. The body is made with 304 food grade stainless steel and is bead blasted to create a beautiful, unique finish.  We then apply a clear coat so that the Square won't pick up fingerprints.  The clear coat alone cost more than the entire cost of most regular water bottles.  We spared no expense to create the best look and feel possible.

ICONIC DESIGN

You want to stand out from the crowd.  Your bottle should as well.

CUSTOM ENGRAVING OPTIONS AVAILABLE
At higher pledge levels we will engrave your name or a short message along the Square.  We will ask for your inscription at the end of the campaign.

We weren't happy with the water bottles available.  So we designed our own.

The Square is the product of a 3 year collaboration between engineers and designers with backgrounds from Apple, Frog Design and Stanford.

We were tired of the poor design and uninspired look of the bottles in the market, so we decided to create our own.

We spent 3 years and worked through hundreds of designs to make the Square the most amazing bottle on the planet.  We didn't stop until we had re-designed almost every aspect of the common water bottle.

We need your help!

The Square has been a very expensive project but we are almost there.  We need your help to pay off our tools and fund our initial purchase order.

Thank you for your support!

  • We have reduced the international shipping cost. Now it is $15 to Canada and $20 to the rest of the world. It actually cost us closer to $30 to ship internationally but we wanted to make the Square as affordable as possible for our international customers.
