#1 Hydro Flask
The top water bottle is the Hydro Flask which we deemed the most portable, versatile, durable and well-designed of all of the water bottles tested.
The patented double-wall vacuum not only prevents condensation from forming on the outside of the bottle, but it helps insulate hot and cold beverages, allowing them to maintain their temperature. In a test to see how insulated the Hydro Flask is, Reviewed.com testers put ice into the water bottle. When they checked the temperature the next day, the ice was still in the Hydro Flask.
#2 YETI Rambler
Yeti is a brand synonymous with outdoor ruggedness. All of their products are built to withstand the elements and keep everything from food to clothing fresh. That’s why the Yeti Rambler water bottle is at the top of the ranks and is even labeled as the “Best for the Outdoors” by Reviewed.com experts.
The double-walled insulation helps maintain the liquid’s temperature while preventing the outside from getting hot or cold to the touch. Its generous 26-oz. capacity will keep your thirst quenched on hiking and camping trips, or allow you to share fresh drinks with friends. Reviewed.com says it has the capacity to hold three lemonades or four mint juleps.
#3 Nalgene HDPE 48oz
This extra large water bottle (48oz) is one of my personal favorite. it’s BPA free, made using the finest plastics and metals.
I love having a large bottle (this one is 1.5 liter) without having to worry about refilling it all the time. it’s very durable, yet very light and easy to carry around.
#4 Brita Sport
Brita is known for filters, and this water bottle comes complete with a filtration system that keeps water fresh. The soft squeeze body makes this the perfect water bottle for sports, making it easy to sip while biking, hiking and during any other outdoor or sporting event.
Though plastic bottles (even BPA free) can sometimes leach flavors into water, Brita’s filter, which only needs to be changed once every two months, helps prevent those strange, plastic odors from permeating the water.
#5 Hydrapak Stash
The Hydrapak Stash Water Bottle is the ultimate in collapsible water bottles. Just screw it down as you go. By the time it’s empty the hard BPA-free plastic lid meets the base and the whole thing tucks away in the pocket of your cargo pants or your fanny pack. Water tastes clean and clear, the wide mouth makes for easy access and when it’s empty it weighs a scant 3.3 ounces.
#6 Klean Kanteen
Another great bottle for retaining a beverage’s temperature is the Klean Kanteen. With its Climate Lock insulation, it can keep drinks cold for about two days.
A perk of the Klean Kanteen is that you can use different kinds of in-brand caps. So you can use the loop cap for easy carry and to hook onto a backpack, or a quick-twist café cap which can be used as a casual to-go mug.
#7 Thermos Intak
Thermos throws their hat into the reusable water bottle ring with authority with this 24 oz, BPA-free, dishwasher safe number. Everything about the bottle says ‘practical’, from the contoured shape with the textured grip pad to the small but strong carrying loop to the flip top cover that keeps your contact surface clean and hygienic. Available in an array of attractive colors.
#8 CamelBak eddy
The design of the CamelBak Eddy solves a problem that many encounter when using water bottles; having to tip the water bottle at a weird angle to take a drink. This water bottle is designed with a straw that flips up to open and down to seal shut.
To increase the flow of water, bite down on the valve. The CamelBak Eddy is made with BPA-free materials, is dishwasher safe, and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
#9 Nalgene Tritan
Who didn’t have a Nalgene in their backpack during the 90s? Well, just in case you forgot Nalgene is still here and their water bottles – like this Tritan Wide Mouth – are still outstanding values. The Tritan features a no-drip lid and sturdy carrying loop with measurements in both ounces and milliliters for those who just have to know. You’ll need some kind of pack to carry this any distance but it’s worth it. Durable, chemical free quality made in the USA.
#10 Thermos Intak
If you’re the kind of person who needs to keep your water consumption in mind, then the Thermos water bottle is for you. It comes with a rotating intake meter in the lid that helps keep track of how much water you drink throughout the day.
With a one-hand push up lid and a carry loop, it’s easy to use while on the go. According to Reviewed.com, the only points against the Thermos is that the water warmed up to room temperature after about an hour.
