I was looking for a reusable straw because our local theater now provides paper straws only. That's a great solution for 30-45 minute dining, but when movies are now running longer than 2 hours and there is at least 30 minutes of previews and advertising, a paper straw just can't last up to 3 hours.
My first inclination was to purchase a metal straw, but a friend on Twitter recommended these.
I am really impressed. They look great and don't feel awkward to use. Even though I ordered a pack of two, I was sent an additional straw and an additional straw cleaner. I also really like the fabric case that came with the straws.
I would absolutely buy these again and am actually thinking about getting several for friends and family for Christmas this year.
