The packaging is basic and clean looking, and the bottle is easy to hold in an adult hand. My fiancé and I each taste-tested a bottle. I figured he would be a better judge since he only drinks water that's bottled or filtered (I'll drink it from the tap but I prefer adding Crystal Light). We were both impressed by this water and we were amazed by how smooth it tastes. It doesn't have any underlying odors or aftertaste, which we haven't come across before. It's weird because it tasted even more pure than bottled or filtered water! But we both liked it. Although I prefer to use a reusable Nalgene and to use the Brita filter at home since its better for the environment, if I needed bottled water for some reason, I would definitely choose to buy Resource spring water.
