I carry my 1/2 gallon jug to school to sip my sweet tea all day. I stick a straw in it & use the cap to cover the straw now due to Covid. I would upgrade to 5 stars if there were a straw lid option with a covering! The lid needs to tougher too on all your products. I dropped it & it got knocked off my desk, causing it to crack around the spout. My new 40 oz. tumbler was knocked out of a cup holder accidentally by my grandson & the lid cracked.

I got this for my husband and he really likes the jug, but the lid does need a lot of work. With this jug being so big it is in need of a straw for sure. I hope that will be coming in the near future.
The bottle is great- the hole in the lid needs to be much bigger and have a vent
Drink hole is way too small, needs to be at least twice the size. Vent hole also needs added.
It holds up to taking a beating. Haven’t dented it after nearly a year, and it’s taken a few drops. Overall the 1/2 gallon jug works very well. I just wish that RTIC offered a straw top for it! It would be amazing to just drink it out of the straw without having to pick the jug up and pour. I’ve been half tempted to make one that would attach to the pour spout, haha. But for real, RTIC, please, make a straw top. IT WILL SELL!
The jug is fine and does the job… the lid is poorly designed and the spout is way too small….. there is no vent and is therefore annoyingly slow to pour or drink from it… RTIC needs to design a replacement lid ASAP..
The 1 gallon bottle is good (3 stars). With a vented lid, it would be better (4 stars). With a larger pour spout and a vent it would be awesome!!!
Love this jug. I work construction so cold water is necessary in the summer. I drink a full gallon most days.
I wish I could take my jug to work with me, but this lid is preventing that. It is very loud to drink from because air has to go in as water goes out from the same tiny opening. People like me who carry a gallon are used to drinking from openings similar to what you see on a milk jug, which is pretty universal for gallon jugs. So please make it bigger! This would also allow more air in while I’m drinking, and you wouldn’t even have to add a vent. I’m honestly surprised at how small this opening is, given there is no vent.
This is a nice jug, but it doesn't really work for drinking. As you can see from my review and a significant fraction of the other reviews on this, it really needs a straw lid. If it had a straw lid, I would give it 5 stars
I would like to see the screw on cap click in place when you are pouring so it doesn’t fall closed while you are trying to pour. A vent would be nice too.
Great gallon jug, keeps my water nice and cold. The only down side is the small mouth on the bottle. Would totally be a 5 star if that was fixed.
Jug keeps ice for days. Wish the lid had a larger opening for my giant mouth. A larger opening would make it easier to pour as well. Will update my review to 5 stars when it has a better lid and drinking hole.
My gallon jug was the best, loved it!..but then it fell out of my truck and the lid cracked big time oops! Just waiting for the part to be back in stock. I might just buy another while I wait.
Love the gallon jug, but this lid is a terrible design. I got this for my 10 year old to take to all-day outdoor summer camp so he can have cold water all day but the lid is awful. Really need some kind of snap on or straw-type option.
Stock lid isn't bad but would love it if there was a flip straw lid or even a plastic mesh so ice doesn't always come through.
I may be in the only one in the situation, but I would like to see some sort of lid with a straw. I drink out my gallon jug at work all the time and it is a bit annoying to lift it. (First world problems lol) also I have seen it mentioned on here a few times. Your spout could use some improvement on starting to tighten the cap back on, and the splash problem is definitely a big issue, so a vent lid would be nice. To all those in the future you can flip your jug over kind of like how you pour a 5 quart jug of oil, and it helps the splashing issue
If the gallon jug lid had a wide mouth port its would have got 5 stars but I give it a 4
Love the jug, keeps ice for 12-24 hrs depending on ambient temperature. However, the lid design is only fair. It splashes everywhere when you try to pour it. I would buy a better lid if it were offered.
The old jug I have has a insulated lid and keeps my coffee hot all night at work. This lid is not insulated and keeps the coffee hot / warm for half the time. Please make an insulated 1/2 gal lid
