The 10 Best Reusable Water Bottles

The 10 Best Reusable Water Bottles

Instead of insisting that everyone recycles each water bottle, encouraging the use of reusable water bottles is a simpler, more cost-efficient way to tackle this problem. Companies of all kinds have quickly caught on to the reusable water bottle trend, creating a large market with room for plenty of competition.

The material, insulation, and overall presentation of each brand is different, making some better than others. Take Nalgene, for example. The plastic loop on the top of the lid (allowing users to easily attach it to their backpack) and the 32-ounce capacity has helped this brand become a staple for dedicated hikers and campers everywhere. That being said, its lack of insolation has kept it from surpassing other brands in sales.

While searching for the perfect reusable water bottle for your lifestyle, it's helpful to considerer the insolation, capacity, and material of each brand. If you're looking for a durable water bottle that will keep your beverage cold, stainless steel performs better than glass and plastic.

In order to rank which brands are the best, we took each of these factors into consideration. Take a look at the 10 best reusable water bottles, choose one, and get active and stay hydrated!

#10 Nalgene, $9

Thanks to its 32-ounce capacity, Nalgene is prominently used by consumers who might not pass a water station for long periods of time, like hikers. It's also known for its durability. Try throwing one of these guys against a rock and see what happens! Chances are, it won't even crack. Though it's loved by many outdoorsmen, it lacks insulation, which is why it's No. 10 on our list.

#9 Polar Bottle, $10

According to HydrationAnywhere, Polar Bottle keeps liquids cold all throughout the day. With vacuum insulation, a 24-ounce capacity, and a sleek design, Polar Bottle easily made the list, but its plastic material (making it easier to break) kept it from a higher ranking.


#8 Aladdin, $15

Besides quenching your thirst, this brand's main priority is to help the environment. Aladdin water bottles are made from second generation eco-friendly plastics and they're proven to be completely leak-proof. This company also makes mason jars, tumblers, and salad containers. With a lack of insulation, though, it failed to make our top five.

#7 PURE Glass, $28

PURE Glass water bottles have an unbreakable shatterproof design and a 20-ounce capacity. Thanks to its safe-shell technology, it has even gone as far as calling its water bottle the "World's Safest Glass Bottle." This brand would be higher on our list if it offered bottles that held more than 25 ounces.

#6 Glasstic, $20

According to Glasstic, this is the "last water bottle you'll ever buy." The plastic shell provides shatterproof protection and extra durability, and it's available in a wide range of patterns and colors. Glasstic isn't much different from PURE Glass, which is why its color selections and lower price landed it higher on our list. It's the best of both worlds for a cheaper price!

#5 ApaViata, $18

ApaViata water bottles have a durable borosilicate glass body with a smooth, neoprene sleeve, creating natural insulation. The bottles sport a stainless steel cap and a handy strap that you can hook onto your bag. This company also donates 15 percent of its revenue to the World Help Organization; a charity dedicated to providing clean water around the world.


#4 bkr, $30

Unlike many water bottles on our list, bkr is best known as a modern and sleek accessory. Don't believe us? It's been mentioned in a number of fashion magazines, like Vogue, InStyle, and Elle. Style isn't all this brand has to offer, though, for its silicon sleeve provides ultimate protection, allowing it to rarely break or leak, and it keeps your drinks cool.

#3 Klean Kanteen, $32

Looking for insulation? Klean Kanteen's water bottles have a double-walled vacuum insulation technology guaranteed to keep your liquids cold for hours. It's also built with 18/8 food grade stainless steel, making it nearly indestructible.

#2 Miir, $55

For our top two spots, we've chosen heavy-duty water bottles that go above and beyond to provide ultimate satisfaction to customers. With up to a 64-ounce capacity, a double-walled vacuum insulation feature, a steel body, and ergonomic grips along the edges, the MiiR is superb. Not only does this brand provide top-of-the-line reusable water bottles, it also offers a stylish line of backpacks, bicycles, and other outdoorsy equipment.

#1 Hydro Flask, $50

Finally, we've reached the best reusable water bottle on the market: Hydro Flask. This bad boy has a stainless steel body, a double-walled vacuum insulation, and a 64-ounce capacity, and offers a lengthy list of bottles to choose from. Yes, the company is best known for its indestructible and stylish water bottles that come in every color you can think of, but it also produces a desirable line of coffee thermoses, beer cups, and food containers. The high-tech technologybehind these bottles and thermoses will keep your liquids hot or cold and it will keep your food fresh. What could be better?
