The 750ml drinking bottle comes with a 820mm straw & a 650mm straw, bendable support and an optional low effort non-return valve which allows fluid to flow through the straw in only one direction, so when fluid is sucked up the straw it will not travel back down the straw allowing people with limited suction to drink .

This base allows the bottle to be freestanding, and can be removed and re-stuck.
