Hand held water bottle

I'm looking for a hand held water bottle, preferably one that's 12 or more ounces. Do you have a favorite?  I'd love to hear your thoughts before buying one.

    I like my ultimate direction bottle.


    Feels comfortable, doesn't leak and stays put for me.

    i like the water bottles from rei.  not sure they're the cheapest, but i tend to like to pay a little more and not have to replace things as often.

    I use the Amphipod water bottles and one for my phone you can see it here:


    However I noticed they have a water bottle / phone combo that has me curious.

    I made my own by taking a length of bike tube, tying it into a loop, and tying one end of it around the bottle.  Kind of hard to describe, but I think the exact setup is personal.  The main thing is, it was confortable but didn't slip.  And cheap enough I didn't mind tossing the whole thing part way through my marathon.  The water bottle was a promotional bike water bottle from a vendor at the expo.
