Just like your clothing and sneaker choices, the water bottle you use is an expression of yourself. While we don’t normally like to categorize a person by materialistic items, we will admit that brands these days have become more of a lifestyle. Sure, you are making a purchase for its functionality and design, but you’re also buying into what they represent. Water bottles are one of those daily items you’re always grabbing for. So, why not make sure it’s the right fit for your wants and needs?
Whether you’re an outdoor loving Hydroflask guy or a sleek and sophisticated S’well drinker, we don’t need to tell you that hydration is the key to success. We all should be listening to our bodies, which tell us to drink plenty of water in day. And on top of that, we should avoid single use plastic bottles as much as possible for both our health and the environment. Both of these claims are much easier to follow with a reusable water bottle that, like a good pair of shoes, fits seamlessly into your life.
To help you find the right water bottle for your needs, we tested countless reusable water bottles to find the best water bottles on the market right now. We cover everything from the best water bottle for the gym, to the best water bottles to keep ice frozen, and everything in between. It’s time to invest in one of the 15 best reusable water bottles, and don’t be caught dead carrying a plastic water bottle ever again.

Best Outdoor Water Bottle
24 oz Lightweight Wide Mouth Trail Series
We’ve written about the Hydroflask Ultralight Trail Series before. In fact, it was one of the winners of our 2020 Outdoor Awards.
While we love the OG Hydroflask bottles, we will admit that they can feel a bit heavy at times. The trail series is a massive innovation for the outdoor-focused brand and for its cult following. The Lightweight Trail Series delivers the same trusted ice cold (or hot) refreshment you’re used to with Hydroflask, but now 25% lighter in weight. It’s a better choice for traveling, hiking, camping, and more because it lessens your load on the road.
Best Everyday Water Bottle
If you haven’t heard of the greatness that is a S’well water bottle, you must be living under a rock. Not only are they fun and stylish in the variety of designs, the product is actually among the best in function. Therma-S’well is the patented technology they use featuring triple-layered, vacuum-insulated construction. It probably keeps your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot the longest on this list. Beware of copies because nothing will ever live up to the hype of a S’well.
The 17oz is designed to mimic your standard plastic water bottle, but this one is obviously so much better. It’s sophisticated enough for your desk and versatile enough for the gym making it the best everyday water bottle. The only downfall of the S’well is that you’ll have to individually place ice cubes through the spout if you’re an ice-cold kind of guy.
Most Stylish Water Bottle
Corkcicle Canteen users won’t divert to any other brand. It has a loyal following for a reason. Not only do they create an amazing thermoregulated product that feels nice to sip out of, they create some of the most sleek, stylish, and fun water bottles on the market. They are always dropping new modern prints, colors, and pop culture references (Star Wars fans, you’re going to want to see this.)
Once you hop on the Corkcicle train, you will probably become a collector. Most of their products come in a full collection for water, wine, champagne, beer and more. But let’s get back to water. This bottle has three-layer insulation but still manages to feel ergonomically comfortable and thin. It also fits into most cup holders, a non-negotiable if you ask me.
Rambler 18 oz Bottle with Chug Cap
The Yeti Rambler wins a whole list of titles in our eyes. While there’s no question in its durability, thanks to the 18/8 kitchen-grade stainless steel, it’s also the great for keeping ice cold. Part of that reason is because of how easily you can actually fit ice in it. With the Rambler, you get shatter proof, rust-proof, double-insulated walls that plays both sides of the temperature spectrum.
The icing on the cake is that it’s dishwasher safe and super easy to get inside the body to clean. And the sprinkles on the icing come from the Chug Cap. In your most parched moments, where all you want to do is chug, this feature keeps you from spilling down your shirt.
Best Glass Water Bottle
BPA-Free Glass Water Bottle With Silicone Sleeve
If you’re anything like me, you are a huge skeptic to glass water bottles. I never understood why I would want to carry around something heavy and breakable when I could just easily choose one of the other options on this list. But that was before I tried this one.
It’s now my daily desk side water bottle and I literally miss it when it’s not around. The soft curved glass spout just hits different. It feels like a wet kiss on your lips and it actually makes your water taste better. Plus, the silicone sleeve is genius for avoiding breakage. I find myself filling up this water bottle much more regularly than any of the others on this list. We wouldn’t recommend this for the gym or outdoors, but it sure is a wonderful bottle for you to carry in your car or have near your desk. You’ll be much more hydrated throughout the day because you’ll actually enjoy drinking from it.
Eddy®+ 32 oz Water Bottle
If you’ve been around the block, you’ve probably owned a Camelbak Eddy once or twice in your life. And if you’re new here, the Eddy refers to the infamous straw that runs through the bottle. Instead of turning your head to the sky to skip, all you have to do is flip, bite and suck on the Eddy. Effortless drinking somehow leads to more drinking and staying hydrated is a key pillar to your overall health.
Everyone and their brother used to own the plastic version of this, but now the brand has hopped on the insulated stainless-steel train to create a really great product. It has an easy-to-carry handle, dishwasher save cap, and leak-proof construction.
Best Water Bottle For the Gym
18 oz Actives Insulated Water Bottle
Do you ever use a water bottle and think you could have designed it better? Well, you won’t ever think that with the Active from Takeya. Stylish in design (it’ right up there with Hydroflask and S’well) it checks off almost every box, solving the problems you experience using other bottles on this list. Let’s break it down.
First and foremost, it is vacuum-insulated with coated food-grade stainless steel, so your liquid will remain crisp and cold. More interestingly, it features a loophole handle for ease of carry, or for clipping on a gym bag. Furthermore, the insulated spout lid features a screw-off design that doesn’t actually ever come off. One: you’ll never lose the lid, two: the mouthpiece is protected from germs, and three: you’ll never spill, even when you chug. We should also note that this water bottle fits perfectly in your car cupholder. These features are among common user feedback when it comes to water bottles. Thank you, Takeya, for listening.
Cleanest Water Bottle
Before you scroll ahead after seeing the $95 price point, hear us out. This water bottle is pretty damn revolutionary. The LARQ bottle is the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle and purification system. Let me give you a second to let that sink in.
This water bottle uses UV-C LED light technology to eliminate 99.9999% of bio-contaminates, bacteria and viruses (COVID-19 we’re looking at you). All you have to do a press a button and give it a few seconds for the LARQ to do its thing. Or, when you leave it on, it gets rid of harmful and odor-causing germs every 2 hours to keep both you water and your bottle fresh. If you’re into the highest end of self-care and are usually the tech-forward guy of your crew, then this water bottle fits into your persona perfectly. The original LARQ is made with double coated stainless steel for temperature control, but if you’re looking for the technology without the weight, we recommend the LARQ Movement. It comes with a MicroUSB connector so you can quickly recharge overnight and be ready for the day ahead.
Best Water Bottle Infuser
Bottle Squeeze System Infused Glass Water Bottle
Sometimes plain old water can be so boring that it hinders our hydration levels for the day. Just because you don’t like the taste of water doesn’t mean you shouldn’t drink it. It’s essential for our health and wellbeing to stay hydrated. The Pressa bottle comes with a built-in infuser to level up the flavor of your H20.
The Pressa is specifically unique to its competitors ,because it features a built-in juicer inside the infuser, so you get the most flavor out of your fruits. It’s super easy to use, break-resistant in BPA-free plastic, and delivers strong essence throughout your entire day. You can be your own water mixologist and experiment with flavor combinations to make hydration fun.
Best Value Water Bottle from Amazon
Tritan Wide Mouth BPA Free Water Bottle
While stainless-steel bottles are usually best for temperature control, BPA-free options are the better and easier choice for cleaning. They are dishwasher safe and this one from Nalgene features a wide mouth so you can really get in there and scrub it clean. If you’re more of a room temp water drinker (some studies say it’s even better for your health,) then this water bottle is for you. Plus, it has over 28,000 perfect reviews on Amazon, so they must be doing something right. Although it’s not the most stylish or elevated, it’s a consistent choice that tells the world you appreciate a solid, reliable product at a great value.
Healthiest Water Bottle
20 oz Water Bottle
One of the main complaints of water filters in a single size bottle is the amount of time they take to filter. Hydros Life gets it. When you’re thirsty, you’re thirsty. Their filter is 5x faster than the competition, without compromising quality. It’s a great option for travelers that are always unsure whether or not it’s “safe to drink from the tap.” You can drink water anywhere knowing that it’s healthy and safe for your body. The filter reduces 90% of chlorine and 99% of sediment, two of the most common contaminants. You’ll have to replace your filter about every two months, but in our eyes, it’s worth the peace of mind you get from drinking filtered water.
Best Compact Water Bottle
The Que bottle is one that will stop people on the streets to ask where you got it. It features a patented spiral design that compresses to fit in the palm of your hand, making it take up much less space in your bag or suitcase. Unlike other small bottles, it has the capacity to expand to a full size.
It’s virtually weightless in shatterproof silicone and a leak-proof cap to keep you hydrated in the lowest maintenance way. The cap is also interchangeable to feature their loophole multi-functional keychain, so if you want to clip it on a backpack or belt, you can.
Water Bottle Stein
This award-winning stainless-steel water bottle ranks high among requested features. It has 100% leak proof, double-insulated stainless steel (that’s a pretty high claim) and an ergonomically designed curved body that is just fun to hold. Plus, it looks pretty cool.
Like many others on this list, it keeps liquids hot for 12 hours and cold for 24. This one-time purchase of $30 will last you well over a decade. That’s how durable the Healthy Human bottle actually is. It also allows for an interchangeable “Flip n’ Sip” cap for those of you that tend to spill upon sipping.
Smart Water Bottle
Just when you thought you couldn’t get any more connected in 2020, then came the Hidrate Spark 3. This water bottle is for the guys obsessed with tracking their health, fitness and nutrition. It’s a Bluetooth connected device that tracks your water intake daily and provides hydration recommendations based on other personalized health goals. It does through seamlessly integrating with the Apple Health app, so you can view your body’s levels and progress all in one place. Android users will just have to stick to the bottle’s in-house application. The Hidrate Spark 3 even illuminates as a reminder to drink up.

Classic Stainless-Steel Water Bottle
Klean Kanteen is one of the OG food-grade stainless-steel reusable water bottles. When they first launched, it was such a groundbreaking product in the space. Now, in a saturated market, the brand has made several improvements over the years including the launch of this silicone sports cap. You don’t see this type of teeth-friendly sports cap often among any other stainless-steel options. It mimics the old school Gatorade bottle, but it gives up the squeeze for thermoregulation, a pretty reasonable trade off if you ask me.
The best part about this bottle is that you can continue to change the cap. While (obviously) the sports cap is recommended for sports, you can switch it to a handle friendly covered top for hiking or any of the other many options the brand offers. This is one of the most versatile bottles on the market.
