    I don't like the cap either the grips don't help me at all they make it more slippery if anything. Looks like the grips are just there for a design.

      I picked up a case of Dasani last weekend.
      I so agree, those @#*%^$# new caps are
      the worst. It takes me several moments to open
      and close them. I would gladly pay an extra cent or two
      for the old caps.
      Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba

            I honestly disagree I like their new caps and the new sleek dasani plus bottles seem to fit my hands perfect.

              I think they are easier to open most of the time.

                  Coke cap

                  If you don't like the cap then why do you buy Coke? For the taste?? I don't think so! Start buying Pepsi, they have a better cap!

                    WOW! If someone makes their CSD buying decision based on a cap perhaps I have been overthinking this whole thing! LOL
                    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

                        I wouldn't buy based on whether I like the cap or not. I would go for taste, not the cap.

                          New Coca-Cola Cap Design

                          The main reason for the new caps is to save money on plastic and it also takes fewer turns to take off the cap. Coca-Cola is looking for ways to save money just like every other company in the United States. I am sure this is not the end of package changes and there will be many more to come in the future.

                            I am a Pepsi drinker, BUT, I have to say I like the retro look of Coke's "short cap"

                            I have opened a few of them and resealed them fine,

                            From a packaging standpoint I prefer the retro Coke look, very nice.

                                Forget the problems putting them back on, here is the REAL problem...

                                I bought 2 cases 2 weeks ago and have had 1/2 of them leak WITHOUT so much as opening them.
                                One in my brief case destroying TONS of work and a MESS of my Case, another in my daughters Luggage, many others just in the cabinet while in storage (hours of work cleaning up that mess). If they are NOT straight up, there is a 50% failure rate of leaking all over where ever it is.
                                I had my bottles on there side (like I store my 2 liter bottles) and when I went get a few I saw 1/2 were missing 50% of the contents. I wanted to ask the kids what happened to them, but upon looking closer I saw under the shelf (rack type) everything under was covered in it, NONE were opened, banged or disturbed.
                                This is a case of fixing what isn???„?t broke AGAIN, to save less than a penny in costs. They are thinner and less reliable. I designed plastic molds for 8 years and KNOW this was for a cost cutting measure here. NOT to make it easier to open, please that???„?s a joke of an excuse. It saved as I said less than a penny and I guess when you sell over 10 million a year it adds up. But at who's expense now? There is no way on earth am I buying another one of those and I would like to call the consumer relations about this. (Cant find the number anywhere, help would be appreciated if anyone knows it). I have a few hundred dollars of damage now b/c these cheap bastards didn???„?t do proper testing.

First of all, when you first unscrew it, numerous times it takes the retaining ring along with it... and even worse, to borrow a term from the British... it's bloody hard to screw back on! It usually takes me several tries to catch the threads right, and eventually I just give up and twist it on with brute force. I never had this problem with the old cap design... ever!

                                Comparing it to the old (pre-February 2008) design, they reduced the number of thread rings on the bottle from three to two, which probably saves them a tiny fraction of a cent per bottle in manufacturing costs, along with the smaller cap. But that's not the problem... the old "tall" cap screws onto the new bottle without much difficulty. It's the new "low profile" cap itself, which is very difficult to screw onto both the old and new 20 oz. bottle designs.
