If we learned anything from 2016, it’s that drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your health. Case in point: It made our list of top 10 resolutions to try in 2017. The one thing making that just a little bit easier? Super-cute reusable water bottles that will never ever leak. Because there’s nothing worse than reaching into your bag, only to discover all your valuables floating in a sea of water.
Not only are there some pretty great health benefits from filling up on more H2O, but ditching your daily bottled water habit for one that’s reusable can do some pretty fantastic things for the environment, too. According to Ban the Bottle, more than $1 billion worth of plastic are wasted each year and using a 16.9-ounce reusable can save you nearly $5 a day.
So whether you’re looking for a bottle to keep you hydrated on long hikes, a sporty jug for hour-long hot yoga classes, a deskmate to remind you to drink those 96 ounces of H2O each day, or something that’s not totally ugly that’ll help make you feel better about saving the world, one of these bottles will be the right fit for you.
1. Hydro Flask
The Hydro Flask is an industry fave with a plethora of awards and recognitions, and it's probably best known for keeping cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to six. How? Every bottle is made with professional-grade stainless steel equipped with TempShield technology, a double wall of insulation that guards the temperature of your drink. And, if you’re already feeling super hydrated, the company sells insulated growlers and pint glasses with the same technology so you’re beer can stay chill, too.
If you care about design, S’well is the bottle for you. With dozens of patterns and colors (we're partial to the on-trend rose gold), it's easy to find the perfect bottle. But that doesn't mean this beauty is short on function, either: This non-toxic bottle keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours and comes in multiple sizes, like a kid- and lunch box-friendly 9-ounce version.
Have a long flight coming up? Splurge on the 25-ounce size and fill ‘er up after security. Spend the next few hours drinking the whole thing—drinking lots of water can help you get more shut eye on those longer flights. Just don’t forget to use the bathroom before boarding!
Not all water bottles were created equal. Case in point: the glass bkr bottle. Not only is it one of the only glass bottles on this list (there’s something special and throwback-y about a glass bottle, no?), but the silicone sleeve that comes in like 20 different trendy colors is BPA-free and keeps your H2O insulated. Other benefits: A leak-proof cap, a 90-day breakage warranty, and three convenient size options; 250 ML, 500 ML, and a massive 1-L version.
Oh, and all of our favorite celebrities are obsessed with the brand.
4. Kleen Kanteen
Like other bottles on this list, Kleen Kanteen offers a line of insulated bottles with even longer temperature control—it promises to keep hot drinks hot for up to 14 hours and cold drinks cold for a whopping one. Hundred. Hours. (TBH, if you can tell us a situation where you’d need to keep a single flask of water cold for 100 hours, we’ll personally send you a Kleen Kanteen.) On top of that, these strong-as-steel bottles boast a leak-proof seal so you don’t need to worry about spills in your bag. Dribbles down your face on the other hand, well, that’s up to you to curb.
5. Infuser Water Bottle
While we admit that nothing beats a cold glass of water when dry mouth hits you in the middle of the night like a desert, water can be a little, well, bland. So if regular old H2O isn't for you, we suggest this bottle that lets you infuse water with fruits and veggies.
Some of our fave combos include lemons, limes, and oranges for a citrus explosion, or mint and strawberries for water that'll make you feel like you're on the beach instead of at your cubicle. Plus, adding lemon to your daily hydration routine can give you more energy and help boost your immune system, too. You’re welcome.
Have a little trouble with traditional water bottles? Not from experience or anything, but sometimes a straw is necessary. If you fit into the “must have a straw” category, the Camelbak is for you. It’s easy: Simply flip, bite, and sip. Because you can’t beat spill-proof sipping.
And while we’re partial to the everyday, BPA-free Eddy bottle, Camelbak offers a variety of insulated, stainless steel, and glass versions, so you’re bound to find one that works for you.
