Chances are you’ve heard about the boundless benefits of water for your health, including increased energy, better digestion and even clearer skin. But although you know you should drink more H2O, it’s easier said than done. After all, no one wants to buy bottle after disposable bottle — for the sake of both the environment and your bank account.
That’s why it’s smart to invest in a reusable water bottle that you can refill from any source and tote to work, the gym, yoga class, or really anywhere else your day takes you. A reusable bottle will save you money in the long run, while helping you reach your hydration goals.

Stainless Steel Water Bottles
- 1. Hydro Flask Double Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle, $30, Amazon
One test that an insulated water bottle must pass is the hot yoga class. And the Hydro Flask passed that test with flying colors: Our water was still ice-cold after sitting through 60 minutes in 90-degree heat. Made of high-quality stainless steel, these double-walled bottles are vacuum sealed and designed to prevent condensation rings.
This sleek, stainless steel bottle is lightweight and easy to grip, so it’s perfectly portable when you’re on-the-go, whether hiking up a mountain or running errands around town. The single-walled stainless steel construction keeps your drink cold for hours, and a stylish cap made of sustainably harvested bamboo tops it off.
- 3. Thermo Tank Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle, $24, Amazon
This water bottle company promises their stainless steel bottle will keep your H2O “glacier-cold” for 36 hours, thanks to its two-walled insulation with a copper layer. And if you’re starting your day with a hot cup of joe, it also will make sure you’re not facing lukewarm coffee by the time you reach the office.
- 4. MIRA Vacuum Insulated Travel Water Bottle, $14+, Amazon
Express your creative side while you sip with the myriad options this brand offers to decorate your bottle, from marbled finishes to florals to surf boards. This bottle is sporty enough for the gym or outdoor activities, but also looks stylish sitting on your desk. And you won’t have to worry about sweating or leaks — it’s spill-proof and stays chilled for up to 24 hours.
Plastic Water Bottles
- 1. CamelBak Eddy Water Bottle, $13 (Normally $15), Amazon
If you find more of your drink ends up in your bag — or on your pants — than in your mouth, Camelbak’s spill-proof water bottle cap is a must-have. The newly redesigned “bite-and-sip” cap lets more liquid flow through than previous versions, letting you stay hydrated without having to worry about spills or drips. It’s also dishwasher-safe, unlike other water bottles, so it’s simple to keep clean and germ-free.
- 2. Brita 34 Ounce Hard-Sided Water Bottle, $16, Amazon
If your water has an odor of chlorine or you’re not sure it’s 100% clean, this bottle with a built-in Brita filter will ensure your H2O tastes great and is safe to drink. The filter works to filter out impurities as you sip, so you can ensure you’re enjoying fresh water no matter where you are. You just have to remember to switch the filter for a new one every two months or every 40 gallons, whichever comes first.
Travel Water Bottle
- Yuanfeng Collapsible Water Bottle, $10, Amazon
For adventurers on-the-go, this space-saving water container is a must-have. The soft, BPA-free silicone folds up to be only 4.5 inches tall when it’s empty, but stores up to 20 ounces of liquid when you fill it up! Available in six bright colors, this handy bottle is the perfect travel companion for your next biking, hiking, or camping trip.
