    Not nearly so.
    Not when dropped on pointy rocks
    Ive gotten hole in smartwater bottle that rolled out of car hatchback and fell 20" on to chat at trailhead. It came out of my pack during ride to trail. I hiked 100 miles with a leaky bottle in pretty dry conditions . With top on....and tape over hole in side, it didnt leak much. With top off, it leaked out fast.

    Some days, it's not worth chewing through the restraints.

    I made mine, with materials from RipstopByTheRoll. I have plenty left. I can send you one, if you want. Just PM me with address and, if you want a specific size, desired dimensions.

    Then your just unlucky. I've been throwing bottles up into trees for over 10 years and several 1000 miles without any trouble. But then, I nearly always leave town with a fresh one and it's not often it lands on a rock. In fact, it's not often it actually hits the ground unless my throw was way off.
