7. Carries ~10 oz, just enough to take two good sips every 5 minutes on a 70-80 minute run.

6. Built-in no-leak silicone valve means no unscrewing of cap, and no push-pull action to manuever with ones teeth to get a drink.  Just lift and suck!

5. Spill-proof for a toddler = spill-proof for me!  The cap of a dropped sippy cup does not pop off, exploding my precious drink everywhere when my hands get sweaty and I have an "oops".

4. Contoured design makes it easy to carry without a strap.

3. Running with a sippy cup screams confidence.  Yeah - that's right, it's a sippy cup.  You can stare all you want, I know you wished you'd thought of it.  Yeah, keep staring, pointing, laughing at the ridiculous awesomeness that is beholden to me.

2. With so many color options, I can pick my mix 'n match cap and bottle to fit my mood.  Am I cheerful?  Pink with a yellow top.  Patriotic?  Red, white and blue.  PMS'ing?  Environmental?  Sleepy?  Lazy?  The combinations are limitless.

1.  Price tag. $1.97  Enough said.

New business idea? You could brand them with Tri logos?

Don't take this wrong way...but I'm impressed that you can generate the suction necessary to get liquid out of a sippy cup. I have tried and my head nearly imploded.

Then you'd have to sell them for $19.97 rather than $1.97 or no one would buy them.

This is begging for a response but since we're not in COJ I think I'll leave it. 

Nathan Hydration makes an adult version now.  I love them.

Of course the full carbon version will sell for $59.99

Practice, practice, practice!   This skill also translates into seamless ingestion of thick goos.

I should start collecting some triathlon stickers to put on a couple of the sippy cups.  I just have to make sure not to cover up the my little pony ones   No one will doubt my hardcore status!
