My husband works for Coca Cola and when we go on trips we might grab a 2liter bottle of some thing, be it Coke, Minute Maid or whatever. Some times we reuse the bottle for water. Here is a cozy/carrier to fit that bottle. It's nice to use to carry it or make a longer handle to hang off a rock or a branch and set the bottle in the water if you are near a lake or stream. Keeps it nice and cold.
It stretches to any fit tho so if you are a ...ahh... Pepsi fan...(slaps self on wrist) I guess that would be ok too! :o)
