Why you should trust us
Since we first created this guide, in 2014, we’ve tested more than 100 different bottles over many hundreds of hours. We also spoke with a lot of experts. Given the popularity of metal water bottles, we wanted to get some insight into how that double-walled insulation works. So we called NASA, the best experts on thermodynamics we could think of. Via email, we interviewed Wesley Johnson, a cryogenics research engineer at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.
We also spoke with urban planner Josselyn Ivanov, who wrote her masters thesis on the decline of publicly available water, aka drinking fountains, for MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. “In the absence of investment and maintenance [in drinking fountains], many people fill the void by hauling around their own personalized infrastructure,” she told us.
And across four different writers (Sam Schild contributed the most recent round of testing, in mid-2022) and nine years of work, we’ve seen more than 100 iterations of the same object. From the hard-plastic Nalgene that steamrolled college campuses in the 2000s to a $5,000-plus Chanel bottle (which looks freshly looted from Blackbeard’s treasure chest), these water bottles all do the same thing. When you’ve used water bottles with triple-digit price tags as well as much less expensive versions, you know which one works best.
Who this is for
Pretty much anyone can benefit from having a water bottle they love. Carrying a reusable water bottle is better for the environment and more cost effective than buying bottled water. Bottled-water production in the US alone in 2007 required somewhere between 32 million and 54 million barrels of oil, according to a study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters (PDF). That’s roughly 2,000 times as much as the energy cost of producing tap water, and bottled-water sales in the US have grown to 15 billion gallons in 2020, from 8.76 billion gallons in 2007.
For shoppers, bottled water is also a thousand times more expensive than tap water. Add in the fact that in 2009 nearly half of all bottled water sold in the US was nothing more than pricey, prepackaged tap water (PDF), and it becomes difficult to deny the value of a well-made reusable water bottle.
The most versatile bottle: Takeya Actives Insulated Water Bottle with Spout Lid (22 ounces)
Get this if: You’d like a chameleon of a bottle, something that can adapt to almost any situation, whether you’re sitting at a desk, commuting on a subway, or working out at the gym.
Why it’s great: This double-walled, stainless steel bottle is marketed for gym-goers. But even if you’re not seeking a water bottle for working out, the Takeya Actives has a lid that’s a total standout.
The plastic top features a spout with a twist-on flip cap. Spout lids flow as easily as if you were drinking from an open glass. Yet they won’t splash contents if you’re cantering down the sidewalk at a brisk clip or powering through a sweaty treadmill workout.
The spout lid on the Takeya stands out because you can lock it after you flip it open—so it doesn’t hit your face. And when it’s closed, it covers the drinking surface completely. The whole thing twists off to reveal a 2¼-inch-wide mouth opening, so you can add in whatever you like: Load the bottle with ice, add an electrolyte powder, plop in some lemon wedges.
A silicone rubber boot, or base, comes standard on this bottle and prevents it from slipping or making noise on hard surfaces. Takeya also offers a straw lid, which you can purchase separately. We tested the straw lid, and it was leak-free; we recommend getting one if you primarily want to drink from this bottle while driving.
These bottles come in an array of colors and sizes, and our pick, the 22-ounce Takeya Actives, is the most recent size introduced to the lineup. After testing more than 100 bottles, we truly believe this is the Goldilocks size: not too big, not too small. It’s compatible with both cupholders and backpack pockets. And, like the final piece of a puzzle, it will slide nicely into that tiny bit of space remaining in your tote bag.
All of the Takeya bottle sizes we’ve tested have proved to be leak-free. And if you want a 32-ounce bottle, the Takeya Actives properly adapts the proportions of the bottle to accommodate the new capacity: It gets wider as well as taller, so this bottle remains stable when you set it down (though that does mean it’s too broad to fit in a standard cupholder).
Takeya’s website lists the lid as BPA-free, and it’s dishwasher safe (in the top rack). But hand-washing is recommended for the body. Takeya offers a limited lifetime warranty (you need a receipt).
Flaws but not dealbreakers: We’ve found very little not to love about this design. This is a bottle we think everyone can be very happy with.
A simple stainless steel bottle and standard lid: Hydro Flask Standard Mouth (21 ounces)
Get this if: You want a reliable and versatile water bottle. This is a simple bottle, best for those who believe in doing one thing and doing it well.
Why it’s great: The Hydro Flask Standard Mouth is especially reliable. It’s an insulated, double-walled stainless steel water bottle with a powder-coated exterior (the permanent, lightly textured coating) and a plastic cap. Unlike aluminum bottles, this one won’t dent easily. Unlike glass bottles, this bottle won’t have issues with the bottom cracking. And unlike plastic bottles, it won’t deteriorate quickly while in use.
You can use this bottle with three different lids: the Flex Cap (included), Sport Cap, and Flex Straw Cap. We tested the first two caps, and neither leaked, but we prefer the Flex Cap to the Sport Cap. Usually, sport caps aren’t great at accounting for human error—the plastic can be very stiff and difficult to close with your mouth, so it’s easy to leave them halfway open. And if the bottle is lying on its side, water can occasionally leak through the air-intake valve. (We plan to test the Flex Straw Cap soon.)
If you tend to drink straight from the bottle, the Hydro Flask has a narrow, tapered metal edge. And it mimics the rim of a glass better than the lip on any other bottle we tested, including the round lip on the Klean Kanteen and the thick, industrial-feeling lip on the Yeti Rambler. The standard mouth opening is 1¾ inches wide—wide enough to fit ice but not so wide that water will slosh up your nose if you drink on the move.
Of the three sizes this bottle comes in, we think 21 ounces is the right capacity. This size is big enough to keep refills to a minimum but not as unwieldy as the 24-ounce bottle. (The 24-ounce Hydro Flask is tall and narrow and thus easy to tip over, and it feels large.) The cap is BPA-free, and Hydro Flask offers a limited lifetime warranty on this bottle.
Flaws but not dealbreakers: Complaints about the Hydro Flask are infrequent and few. However, while a silicone boot comes standard on the Takeya Actives bottle, for this Hydro Flask model, a boot is an add-on (it usually costs around $10).
Also, some people may not like that a portion of the drinking surface is exposed; the cap threads twist into the bottle rather than over the top and around the lip. We do like this design because sipping from a threaded drinking surface isn’t pleasant. But if the exposed drinking surface bothers you, several of our other picks—including the Takeya Actives, the Purifyou Premium, and the plastic Thermos Hydration Bottle—have lids that fully cover the drinking surface.
Our favorite bottle for the car: CamelBak Eddy+ (25 ounces)
Get this if: You want something that’s easy to sip from while you’re driving, or you want something that encourages you to drink water throughout the day (our unscientific findings have led us to believe that straws make it easier to slurp down water).
Why it’s great: This bottle has an integrated straw in the lid that features a plastic bite valve to keep it sealed (something anyone who has owned a CamelBak hydration pack will be familiar with). Just bite down to open the straw and release to seal it shut. That leak-free lid makes this bottle an ideal driving companion—it fits in a cupholder and is easy to sip from while you’re keeping your eyes on the road. And if you transfer the bottle to a bag, the bite valve folds down into the lid, shielding it from too much contact with the bag’s contents.
Also, if you have daily hydration goals, there’s something about a straw that makes it easy to mindlessly consume the 20, 30, or 40 ounces of water you may have ahead of you. If this sounds like you, the Eddy+ comes in a 32-ounce size, which would be easy to fill once, plop next to your laptop, and hit your goal for the day.
The straw lid twists off to reveal a wide mouth that makes adding ice to your drink easy—handy if you like to keep your water cold. However, this is a plastic bottle, so adding ice could also make it sweaty. If you want to avoid that, the insulated version should prevent moisture from accumulating on the outside of the bottle.
The Eddy+ is an updated model, and with this redesign CamelBak has addressed reports of the bite valve’s leaking or not functioning properly. The one we tested worked great, and neither the lid nor the valve leaked in our tests. This bottle is BPA-free, and all pieces—including the cap, lid, and straw—can go through the dishwasher. CamelBak offers a lifetime guarantee against defects in the manufacturing and materials, and the company will replace them if they’re defective.
Flaws but not dealbreakers: To get the water flowing, you do have to bite down on this straw and hold it while you drink, which may not appeal to some people. But overall we didn’t find that to be cumbersome, and we soon forgot all about it.
The best tapered bottle: Mira Cascade (17 ounces)
Get this if: You want a bottle with a minimalist, classic shape and a cap that covers the drinking lip.
Why it’s great: The Mira Cascade is a double-walled insulated bottle made of stainless steel. Its lid threads over the drinking surface, so you won’t have to put your mouth on something that’s been getting dirty in your bag all day. The Mira’s tapered shape is reminiscent of a classic 20-ounce plastic soda bottle, and this bottle is nice to hold. It will keep the contents cold all day, and due to the bottle’s small opening, your beverage won’t splash your face while you’re drinking, as the Nalgene Wide Mouth Bottle does.
The Mira Cascade is nearly identical to the S’well, another tapered bottle we like everything about—except the price. Since the Cascade is less than half the price of the S’well, we naturally picked the less expensive option, which performs just as well.
The Mira Cascade has an elegant design, so it fits in at the office and other formal events: Pick the right color, and it could even match a tux. And it passed the leak test, so you don’t have to worry about this bottle’s contents ruining your day, your laptop, or your evening wear.
We think the 17-ounce size is ideal—it fits in a briefcase, in cupholders, and in water-bottle pockets. If you want a smaller or larger bottle, the Cascade also comes in a 12-ounce size and a 25-ounce size. The 25-ounce size is slightly wider, so it won’t fit in a cupholder.
The lid covers the drinking lip, so no matter where you toss this bottle, the surface that your mouth touches will be covered. Also, we think the Mira Cascade’s lid is just the right size, compared with the Corkcicle Canteen’s lid, which is so small we were worried about losing it. Like most double-walled bottles, the bottle itself isn’t dishwasher safe, but the lid is. Mira sells replacement lids and lid gaskets, too.
Flaws but not dealbreakers: Since the lid covers the drinking lip, the bottle’s threads are on the drinking surface. While we generally don’t love the feeling of threads on the outside lip, these don’t protrude much, and we quickly got used to the feeling. Also, because of the 1.35-inch opening, it’s impossible to get prism-shaped ice cubes from a classic ice cube tray into the bottle. However, half-moon-shaped ice cubes do fit through the opening.
The best plastic water bottle: Thermos Hydration Bottle (24 ounces)
Size options (ounces): 24
Lids available: flip top (included)
Dishwasher safe: yes
Get this if: You value lightweight portability, and you like a good deal—two excellent qualities in a water bottle. This one is also dishwasher safe, unlike some other bottles we recommend.
Why it’s great: The super-affordable 24-ounce Thermos Hydration Bottle has been a pick since we first published this guide, in 2014, and it’s still here. This is a plastic bottle with a plastic, flip-top lid and spout. It has passed years of leak tests, and the lid has a lock, so it will stay closed in your bag.
Another great feature of this bottle: Despite the fact that it holds 24 ounces—a capacity we’ve found to be cumbersome in a metal bottle—the Thermos possesses just the right proportions to be ergonomic and easy to carry.
This bottle weighs only 6.6 ounces. The textured, contoured design makes the Thermos easy to hold, too, and you can effortlessly drop ice cubes into the wide mouth. And after you reattach the lid, the spout is simple to drink out of. This design is a winning combination, the same as on a similar, insulated pick, the Takeya bottle. Also, the Thermos is made from Eastman Tritan BPA-free plastic.
Flaws but not dealbreakers: After using the 24-ounce Thermos nearly constantly for seven years, we don’t have a lot of criticism. However, we do wish Thermos would sell this type of bottle in a few different sizes. Also, though the lid has a ring that you can turn to track your water intake, in practice we’ve found we barely use it. Still, it’s not hurting anything by being there.
An ideal air travel companion: CamelBak Podium (21 ounces)
Get this if: You want a travel bottle. This bottle was invented for a bike cage, but a regular ol’ squeeze bottle is useful for so many things, specifically airport travel. Eve personally owns (and uses) just two types of water bottle, and this is one of them.
Why it’s great: Basic, lightweight, and cheap, a bike squeeze bottle makes a great travel companion, and we like the CamelBak Podium in particular. It has a twist lock—which provides extra assurance that the bottle is tightly closed when you toss it in a bag. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe.
For years, we looked for a reliable collapsible travel bottle, but we’ve been disappointed so many times: The Hydaway tastes plasticky, the Vapur and the Platypus collapse (in a bad way), the HydraPak flops, and the Nomader doesn’t pack down very small. And the implied way to carry a travel bottle correctly—clipped to a backpack or belt loop—always leaves them swinging around haphazardly, in our experience. We’ve recommended all of these bottles in the past, but we’ve constantly been left wishing there were a better way.
A bike squeeze bottle is now our sincere recommendation for airport travel. In addition to being light and relatively compact, this bottle is inexpensive, so if the TSA takes it, you’ve lost only a few dollars, instead of an expensive insulated bottle. You could also bring the Thermos Hydration Bottle we recommend. But this CamelBak bottle has fewer moving parts, if you don’t want to fuss with the lid or flip lock on the Thermos. Our other recommendation would be to buy a plastic bottle in the airport, and then use it for the rest of your trip.
Two types of Podium are available: the original and the Podium Chill, which has a reflective material in the lining intended to help keep water cold. We haven’t found this lining makes any difference. In our tests, the liquid in insulated squeeze bottles warmed 17 degrees over six hours, the same as in a glass or unlined plastic bottle. For that reason, we wouldn’t bother with the lined version and instead recommend the original.
Flaws but not dealbreakers: The lid on this bottle is not covered, so if you dislike the idea of a bottle swimming around in a bag with the drinking surface exposed, you may like the Thermos better. In addition, this bottle’s squeeze valve does not push in and out, as on other models. Instead, the mouthpiece is static, and the plastic piece inside releases water when you apply pressure to the bottle. So if you’re using this bottle for cycling, and you experience a ton of dust and dirt on your ride, some of it may get stuck in that mouthpiece.
An upgrade pick: Purist Mover (18 ounces)
Get this if: You’ve noticed that odors or flavors in your water bottle don’t go away, you want a bottle that looks like a design object, or you want one bottle that can hold both hot and cold drinks. Purist’s bottle has a (non-breakable) glass interior that prevents flavors from transferring, so there should be no taste issues like you get with stainless steel or plastic.
Why it’s great: The 18-ounce Purist Mover is a drink bottle designed within an inch of its life. With a special lining made to stop flavor transfers, an aesthetic that looks designed to fit into a Tesla’s dashboard, and a newly expanded range of caps, this is a refined bottle that can do it all—and it’s worth the high price.
The signature feature of the Purist is a glass-lined interior that prevents tastes and odors from transferring. Unlike traditional glass vacuum linings, the Purist’s is unbreakable (and so minimal you can barely notice it), since it’s applied as a thin, spray-on coating. You get the benefits of a glass bottle minus the weight or potential breakage, plus it keeps drinks hot or cold.
And in our experience, the Purist bottle works. We’ve had this bottle in testing for three years, including one episode where we left the Purist under a car seat for a month with kombucha in it. Someone finally got the courage to open the bottle and clean it out, and the next day a bottle full of water tasted like water and nothing else. Wirecutter’s Tim Barribeau—who is pathologically averse to the taste of coffee—found that even after cold-brew concentrate sat in the Purist for a weekend, water came out tasting fresh (after a simple wash of the bottle). Some tastes and smells lingered in the flip-top lid, but those disappeared after a good scrub.
There are three lids that work with the Purist water bottle: the simple, screw-top Element, the flip-top spout Union, and the Scope, a café lid designed for hot beverages. The lip of the bottle is on the thick side, so if drinking from a thick-walled bottle would bother you, we’d recommend either the Union or the Scope.
Though 18-ounce bottles can feel small, the Mover can hold more than advertised. The Union spout cap is hollow and raised above the top of the bottle, in contrast with the flat Element cap, which plunges downward. That means using the Union cap, you can fill the bottle to the brim; we did, and that’s when we discovered the bottle can hold up to 21 ounces.
Purist has a lifetime warranty and will “replace any product found to be defective within the realm of normal and appropriate use.”
Flaws but not dealbreakers: This bottle is clunky to drink out of if you use only the twist-off cap (the Element). So if you’re going to invest in the Purist, we recommend getting the spout lid (the Union) or the Scope cap (Purist’s version of a café cap). The Union spout cap is tricky to open due to its tight seal (but we found that if you pinch both sides of the spout, the cover pops off easily).
Other good water bottles
If you’re going camping: Consider the Nalgene Wide Mouth Bottle, which is inexpensive, indestructible, and lightweight. It has more than 54,000 reviews on Amazon and a star rating of 4.8 out of 5. That must be some sort of site-wide record for the most-beloved product. And we couldn’t agree more: For almost a decade now, we’ve been talking about why this isn’t among our picks.
But we still don’t include it, because in day-to-day life it’s sort of annoying. You can’t drink out of it while walking, the attached cap gets in your face, and it doesn’t fit a cupholder or a backpack pocket. Out there in the wild, it’s the ultimate weapon. Back here in the urban jungle, it’s just kind of a klutz. So, to summarize, we love this bottle, but specifically for camping. And that’s outside the scope of what we test for in this guide.
If you’re set on getting a collapsible travel bottle: Consider the Nomader 22-ounce collapsible bottle, which was our travel pick in 2018. It has stood the test of time, whereas other travel bottles have sprung leaks. If you must have a travel bottle, this one is the easiest to fill and drink from. Our big concern is that this bottle doesn’t roll down particularly small, so it’s up to you to decide whether the space savings are worth it.
If you want a spout lid on a lightweight, plastic bottle: After a reimagining of the lid on the CamelBak Chute—resulting in the addition of a magnet to keep the lid open and out of the way while you’re drinking—we can’t find any serious negatives for this bottle. The Takeya Actives just barely nudges the Chute out of competition because the Takeya comes with the silicone base, and it’s often on sale. However, the Chute’s lid is compatible with our new recommendation, the CamelBak Eddy+.
How we picked
We’ve been at this for nine years. And, as always, we start by reading trusted editorial sources, in this case outlets such as Gear Patrol, GearLab, and Outside. In addition, each year, we listen to the opinions of Wirecutter’s readers—we’ve incorporated a number of great suggestions from the comments on previous iterations of this guide.
There are so many water bottles in the world that it’s helpful for us to outline what we don’t consider and why. When we find bottles with a pattern of complaints about build quality, usability, or leakage, we drop them from the list of possible test candidates. We also eliminate bottles made by companies that appear to have an opaque supply chain or no online presence outside of an Amazon listing. In any category, if we recommend a product, we want to make sure you won’t have a problem finding one to buy. And if a product is defective, you should be able to contact the manufacturer so that the company can make it right.
We no longer consider bottles made of aluminum because it dents too easily. And when possible we avoid bottles that have painted exteriors because the coating can tend to scratch; in certain categories, however, painted exteriors are the norm. We also set aside uncoated stainless steel bottles—if you leave an uncoated metal bottle in the sun, the exterior becomes too hot to hold.
Some other bottles, including the Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth, can easily serve as water bottles. But because of the caps offered (travel mug caps) or the sizes available (limited to smaller sizes), they are more suited to hot drinks. In the case of the Klean Kanteen, both things are true, so we consider it to be a travel mug. If that’s what you’re looking for, we have a guide to travel mugs for hot beverages.
How we tested
For our most recent round of testing, in 2022, we tried nine new bottles and performed several tests to evaluate them. Here are the tests we regularly conduct:
We do leak tests. There are so many bottles that we can’t see recommending one that leaks in any way. We fill each bottle with water that’s dyed with food coloring. Then we place the bottle on its side over a paper towel for 24 hours and watch for leaks.
The leak test also takes into account how the lid seats on the bottle. We believe good design is human-centered design, and that you should be able to absent-mindedly screw the top back on and trust that the bottle is properly closed.
And we’ve discovered over time that rigid sport caps, like the ones you can get for Klean Kanteen or HydroFlask bottles, are not the best at preventing leaks because they’re prone to user error. Such caps make perfect sense on squeezable sport bottles. But the sport caps that come on double-walled steel bottles are stiffer, so they’re easy to inadvertently leave open. It’s also difficult to tell at a glance whether the valve is fully closed.
We do temperature tests. For five years, we performed temperature tests with the goal of seeing which bottle kept its contents the coldest for the longest. Here are the results from 2017:
In this 2017 test, we filled each bottle with water at 47 degrees Fahrenheit, and then we took a temperature measurement every hour for 10 hours. What we’ve seen in years of testing is that almost every insulated bottle performs to within a few degrees of its competition. There are exceptions, but they’re rare. Companies love to make claims about how long a bottle can keep something hot or cold, but they all work basically the same.
Sometimes manufacturers make bottles with copper linings in an attempt to keep the contents even hotter or colder. It could work, and as Wesley Johnson, a cryogenics research engineer at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, explained, “For spacecraft, we often use a similar technique for insulation.” The theory behind using copper in insulation (despite its being an excellent conductor normally) is based on the fact that heat transfers through three forms: solid conduction, gaseous convection, and radiation, Johnson told us. A double-walled bottle already stops solid conduction, and a vacuum-insulated bottle stops gaseous convection. “This leaves only radiation heat transfer between the walls,” Johnson said. And copper can work to stop that last method of heat loss. But it works only under a set of specific circumstances. “The main benefit of copper is that when it is polished, it is much more reflective of radiation heat transfer,” Johnson explained. So, “the copper liner needs to be: polished, installed in a vacuum, and done so in a manner that limits the amount of oxidation of the metal prior to pulling the vacuum.”
We have tested bottles with and without copper linings, and so far we haven’t found any advantage to using copper. The Yeti Rambler is “constructed with a copper plate to protect against UV,” according to the company’s PR reps. But neither Klean Kanteen nor Hydro Flask includes any copper in its designs, and all the bottles still insulate within degrees of one another.
We consider bottle proportions. After nine years, we’re convinced that 20- to 22-ounce bottles are the perfect size. Although 17-ounce bottles are wonderfully portable, the contents get consumed quickly. And 24-ounce bottles are almost too tall and skinny. They can be very easy to knock over, and they don’t stay upright in cup holders because they’re top-heavy. They begin to take on the appearance of blunt-force weapons: The 25-ounce S’well could double as a small baseball bat.
We like bottles with the right proportions, and we have to believe designers have noticed the awkwardness of the 24-ounce size. For instance, in 2020 the Takeya Actives became available in a 22-ounce size (slightly smaller than the 24-ounce version, which had been our previous pick). Similarly, 32-ounce bottles are most useful when they are wide and squat instead of tall. When we make recommendations for larger capacities, such design concerns are a big part of what we take into consideration.
We consider the drinking experience. Think about the lip: If you’re drinking directly from the bottle, what is that experience like? If you’re trying to drink out of it while walking, what is that like? If you’re drinking from it in a car, what is that like? And recently, due to reader comments, we’ve been tracking whether the cap of a bottle covers the drinking surface completely or whether it’s exposed. Some people are concerned about bacteria getting onto the lip of their bottle, via contact with their hands or with sweaty gym clothes.
The Yeti Rambler is a reliable bottle. But its opening does not taper at all, so this bottle is more of a thermos and more suitable for using a spoon, with something like soup.
The S’well bottle insulates with the best of them, and it has been watertight in all our tests. If you like it, go for it: S’well bottles are just more expensive, at every capacity, than anything else we’ve seen.
In past years, the Klean Kanteen Classic has been one of our picks, and we’ve tested the Insulated Classic as well. They’re both very similar to a Hydro Flask, but in 2019’s testing, both bottles had small leaks. For 2022, we tested the Klean Kanteen Insulated Classic with Pour Through Cap. Though this new lid’s dual gaskets fix the leaking problem, it took twice as many turns to open the pour-through cap compared with most other bottles. This bottle works great as a thermos to carry hot drinks to pour into a smaller cup, but it’s not great as a water bottle. Plus, the cap is metal, as is the bottle, and everyone who tested this model hated the metal-on-metal sound of the cap threading into the bottle.
The Corkcicle Classic Canteen performed well in every regard, but its lid is the smallest of of those on other bottles we tested. In fact, the lid was so small we were afraid we’d lose it.
The Corkcicle Series A Sport Canteen performed poorly in our insulation tests. Also, though it didn’t leak during testing, we thought the quick-sip lid was too prone to human error to be genuinely leak-proof.
Several other bottles leaked in our testing and were thus disqualified, including the 21-ounce Healthy Human Stein.
The EcoVessel Boulder recently went through a redesign, and though we like the inclusion of a mesh strainer inside the lid, this model has the same problem as the Nalgene: The lid is connected with a long silicone strap that doesn’t stay put when you drink from it, unless you hold it down.
The Stanley Quik Flip Go Bottle is one of the few flip-top bottles we’ve found that has a lock to secure the top. But this bottle is especially tall and unwieldy. It would make a better thermos than a water bottle.
The Coldest Water bottle has a flip-top straw that’s also made of hard plastic, like that of the EcoVessel Wave with Fliptop Straw. And it’s not that nice to drink out of.
The Coleman Autoseal FreeFlow Stainless bottle has recently gotten more expensive, and we passed on it for the same reasons we pass on most trigger bottles—a relatively elaborate cap that needs detailed cleaning.

A pick from 2017, the 22-ounce Lifefactory Classic Flip is the best wide-mouth glass bottle available. There are just a few caveats. First, the wide mouth is a bit awkward to drink out of—it feels a lot like drinking out of a jar. Second, although the bottle has alternate lid options, we tested the Flip Cap in 2018, and it leaked. Third, the standard lid is watertight but made of plastic, a concern for many people seeking glass bottles.
The Hydaway was our collapsible travel pick in 2018, and it proved polarizing: We received feedback both from people who loved it and from others who hated it. Such is the fate of all collapsibles we’ve tried. A 50/50 love-hate relationship didn’t convince us this bottle was a reliable recommendation for most travelers.
Our 2017 travel pick, the Platypus Meta, tends to develop a small hole in its bottom, which renders it useless for carrying water. Our 2016 pick, the Platypus SoftBottle, is watertight but floppy, as all collapsible bag-bottles are.
Before that, we picked the 1-liter Vapur. However, CNET’s Tim Stevens brought to our attention a design flaw in the cap that caused it to leak when lateral torsion was applied. We were able to replicate the issue independently using a brand-new bottle. As such, we no longer feel confident recommending it. Both the Vapur Element and the Nalgene Wide Mouth Cantene also leaked from their seams during our twist-and-torque test.
The Contigo Jackson bottle very nearly unseated our favorite plastic bottle of eight years running, the Thermos flip top. The Contigo Jackson held up over a year of long-term testing, and though it didn’t have a lock for the lid, it was so pleasing to use that we were about to make an exception. But as of this 2022 update, the bottle appears to be unavailable, and we suspect there may be continuing availability issues.
The Pogo plastic water bottle is basic and functional. We like the lid (again, just as with the Takeya) and the flip top that closes over the spout. We’ve encountered no leaks. But this bottle has a bad Fakespot rating (a D), and we’re not sure why. So we’re going to put it through more long-term testing.
The trendy reemergence of the Gatorade squeeze bottle prompted us to put it to the test in 2020. There was some small leakage through the threads when we left the bottle on its side overnight. And we can tell the logo will get scratched up quickly. This bottle is pleasing in its outright simplicity, but we think it will become trash within a year.
The Embrava would be a good choice if the 24-ounce Thermos isn’t available, but it has a huge logo and a smooth body that becomes slick when wet.
Care and maintenance
If you’re drinking anything besides water, gunk will build up in your bottle over time, so you’ll need to clean it occasionally. The best way to do that is to use a bottle brush and some baking soda and vinegar.
After several hours of research, we found that the best bottle-cleaning set is the OXO Good Grips Water Bottle Cleaning Set. This dishwasher-safe kit offers a large bottle brush, a skinny straw brush, and a looped, detail-cleaning brush, all kept together on a handy ring so you don’t lose any parts. We bought a couple of sets to confirm their quality, and they are as good as we thought they would be.

Letter of Recommendation: Hot-Water Bottles
Letter of Recommendation: Hot-Water BottlesLetter of RecommendationCredit…Grant Cornett for The New York TimesMy mother started with hot-water bottles in her 20s after moving to Florida. A migraineur, she had long relied on ice bags, but in Orlando she found succor in the sun’s intense rays, letting them blast her brow and temples, and realized that heat did much more for the pain. She could simulate that. She could bring the sun to bed in a darkened room, and did with hot-water bottles, those red rubber vessels that look as if they just wobbled out of a Stefan Zweig novel: Old World but in a way that seems silly and harmless. They became a fixture in our household, the sole reason we ran the microwave; they traveled everywhere with us, always among our suitcases’ earliest inductees.Children can appreciate the thing their mother uses to make herself feel better, and in this regard I was no different, though I expanded her definition of the hot-water bottle’s usefulness. I have held onto generations of them not just for the headaches I inherited but for bellyaches, cramps, the cold, a cold, the side effects of antimalarial pills, tennis elbow. I’ve found that a hot-water bottle excels at palliating less-specific aches, ones that don’t answer to “Where does it hurt?” Try one for heartbreak, uneven work-life balance, self-doubt and elections. They will even serve after you take in a regrettable amount of limoncello, when you have to place an emergency order for one through the Postmates app, along with saltine crackers and ginger ale. I feel about hot-water bottles the way Sylvia Plath felt about baths: There must be quite a few things they won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.As a child, I assumed everyone used them just as my family did, until my worldview was shattered at a sleepover. Suffering from nothing more serious than a bit of social anxiety, I asked for a hot-water bottle. From the look on the officiating mom’s face, I suddenly understood that they were not, in fact, stocked in everybody’s linen closet. This is a travesty.Much of human history has been an effort to maintain 98.6, but it wasn’t until the 1840s, with the invention of vulcanized rubber, that the hot-water bottle even became a possibility. Before then, people warmed bricks and stones in the oven; others had earthenware, tin and copper canisters for water. By the early parts of last century, hot-water bottles were recommended for every home and hospital in Europe and North America.Florence Nightingale used them personally and for her patients. (“Stone bottles are the best,” she wrote in a book on nursing, “or India rubber.”) Salvador Dalí once spotted one at Sigmund Freud’s home. Greta Garbo, upon seeing Katharine Hepburn’s, patted it. “Yes, I have one too,” she said. “Vot is wrong vid us?” In the 1960s, with electric blankets, better insulation and medicine, the bottles started to date.Perhaps its healing properties are no longer held in such high esteem, but the device has retained a certain kitschy charm: a whoopee cushion with shoulder pads that acts…
The 8 Best Water Bottles of 2022 | Reviews by Wirecutter
The 8 Best Water BottlesWhy you should trust usSince we first created this guide, in 2014, we’ve tested more than 100 different bottles over many hundreds of hours. We also spoke with a lot of experts. Given the popularity of metal water bottles, we wanted to get some insight into how that double-walled insulation works. So we called NASA, the best experts on thermodynamics we could think of. Via email, we interviewed Wesley Johnson, a cryogenics research engineer at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.We also spoke with urban planner Josselyn Ivanov, who wrote her masters thesis on the decline of publicly available water, aka drinking fountains, for MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. “In the absence of investment and maintenance [in drinking fountains], many people fill the void by hauling around their own personalized infrastructure,” she told us.And across four different writers (Sam Schild contributed the most recent round of testing, in mid-2022) and nine years of work, we’ve seen more than 100 iterations of the same object. From the hard-plastic Nalgene that steamrolled college campuses in the 2000s to a $5,000-plus Chanel bottle (which looks freshly looted from Blackbeard’s treasure chest), these water bottles all do the same thing. When you’ve used water bottles with triple-digit price tags as well as much less expensive versions, you know which one works best.Who this is forPretty much anyone can benefit from having a water bottle they love. Carrying a reusable water bottle is better for the environment and more cost effective than buying bottled water. Bottled-water production in the US alone in 2007 required somewhere between 32 million and 54 million barrels of oil, according to a study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters (PDF). That’s roughly 2,000 times as much as the energy cost of producing tap water, and bottled-water sales in the US have grown to 15 billion gallons in 2020, from 8.76 billion gallons in 2007.For shoppers, bottled water is also a thousand times more expensive than tap water. Add in the fact that in 2009 nearly half of all bottled water sold in the US was nothing more than pricey, prepackaged tap water (PDF), and it becomes difficult to deny the value of a well-made reusable water bottle.The most versatile bottle: Takeya Actives Insulated Water Bottle with Spout Lid (22 ounces) Photo: Michael HessionOur pickSize options (ounces): 18, 22, 24, 32, 40, 64Lids available: Spout (included), StrawDishwasher safe: lid, yes; body, noGet this if: You’d like a chameleon of a bottle, something that can adapt to almost any situation, whether you’re sitting at a desk, commuting on a subway, or working out at the gym.Why it’s great: This double-walled, stainless steel bottle is marketed for gym-goers. But even if you’re not seeking a water bottle for working out, the Takeya Actives has a lid that’s a total standout.The plastic top features a spout with a twist-on flip cap. Spout lids flow as easily as if you were drinking from an open glass. Yet they won’t splash contents if you’re cantering down the sidewalk at a brisk clip or powering through a sweaty treadmill workout.The spout lid on the Takeya locks open, so it doesn’t flop down on your face. Photo: Michael HessionThe spout lid on the Takeya stands out because you can lock it after you flip it open—so it doesn’t hit your face. And when it’s closed, it covers the drinking surface completely. The whole thing twists off to reveal a 2¼-inch-wide mouth opening, so you can add in whatever you like: Load the bottle with ice, add an electrolyte powder, plop in some lemon wedges.A silicone rubber boot, or base, comes standard…
Shopping for Hot Water Bottles With Chris Hacker
Shopping for Hot Water Bottles With Chris Hackerhttps://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/02/garden/shopping-for-hot-water-bottles-with-chris-hacker.htmlShopping With Chris HackerCredit…Robert Wright for The New York TimesSIX years ago, when Chris Hacker became chief design officer at Johnson & Johnson and began plotting to modernize the look of Band-Aids and baby shampoo, a friend sent him a hot water bottle with a symbol of a cross on its red-and-white knitted cover.The red cross happens to be a J. &J. logo for its first-aid products. And though hot water bottles are not among the many therapeutic devices the company produces, Mr. Hacker mounted the gift on his office wall. It’s still there, proving that for all its practical duties soothing aches and warming toes, a hot water bottle can simply hang around and look attractive.That such a simple technology (open spout, insert warm water) offers so many returns on investment appeals to Mr. Hacker. He set off on a brisk January day to see some of the remarkably varied forms a hot water bottle can take.He began at C. O. Bigelow Apothecaries in the West Village, a 174-year-old drugstore that stocks the genre’s baseline, a two-quart ridged rubber flask made by Cara (about $15).Mr. Hacker, who was trained as an industrial designer, took issue with the bottle’s awkward closure and uncomfortably hard spout, and he grimaced at the dreary taupe color. “I wonder if there are other opportunities for soft and cuddly,” he said.He found one such opportunity while paying what turned out to be a valedictory visit to Moss on Greene Street. (The hallowed design store will soon be moving to a new location.) There, a Dutch hot water bottle called Too Beautiful to Hide had a velourlike finish and a cinched neck that reminded Mr. Hacker of the drawstring on a velvet bag.At Mxyplyzyk, Mr. Hacker smiled at a hot water bottle with a heart on its turtleneck cover. “There’s a handmade aesthetic,” he said of the knitted wrappings that often lend charm to generic bottles. The origins, he imagined, lie in “Grandma getting one of those horrible rubber ones and having the craft skills to dress it up.”Yet not all hot water bottles look like friendly bedfellows. At Kiosk, Mr. Hacker studied a ridged steel oval from Japan that resembled a cross between a canteen and a trilobite. “It seems a little industrial and forbidding,” he said, “which is also what I like about it.”Online, he admired Fatboy’s bottle that is tucked into a big plaid square for outdoor use, and Restoration Hardware’s model covered with a fake lynx pelt. “The idea that it’s replicating a warm, furry animal is nice,” Mr. Hacker said of the latter. “I have two dogs, and they’re my hot water bottles.”
Why We Love Hydro Flask for 2022 | Reviews by Wirecutter
Why We Love Hydro FlaskSkip the waste of bottled water with a Hydro Flask. I have a work-from-home morning ritual. I wake up, go downstairs, and make my morning coffee in a specific white mug. Then I attend to plant mom duties. I water the tomato plant. I water the ficus. I don’t water the succulents, but I poke at them to check in.When I’m happy with the hydration status of my quarantine plant family, I grab my own water bottle—a simple, clean-lined Hydro Flask. It has to be those things, in that order, and that bottle, or I can’t start my day. Our pickThe Hydro Flask 21 oz Standard Mouth water bottle has been a favorite since we began testing water bottles in 2013. It doesn’t leak, unlike many bottles we’ve tested. The lid takes no more than a turn-and-a-half to remove, and the lip of the bottle is thinner than most. The flexible handle accommodates your hand without getting in the way. These little things make it a stand-out product.People are maniacs for cold water, and as humans we even perceive it to be more thirst-quenching than room-temperature water. And that’s one of the big things a Hydro Flask—which is a double-walled, insulated bottle—changed from the days of plastic Nalgenes. It’s even changed since 2013, when we began testing bottles at Wirecutter: Our first top pick was made of single-walled aluminum.We’re devotees of the 21-oz version. Less capacity feels too small; more capacity (especially in the 24-oz range) and the proportions feel off, resulting in tall and top-heavy bottles.In the 21-oz size, the Hydro Flask Standard Mouth stays put in a shallow backpack pocket, remains stable in a car’s cupholder, and has a deeply satisfying fit in the last remaining space along the inside of a full tote.
Attmu Hot Water Bottle Review 2021 | The Strategist
I’m Practically Surgically Attached to My Hot-Water Bottle All Winter My enthusiastic friends have bought two: one for the lap and one for toes. As a native of Ireland, I, and all of us, were very familiar growing up with the hot-water bottle. A flattish rubber bottle that you fill with hot water, tuck into its cover, and place at your feet in bed at night for toasty toes. On many an occasion, friends in a group chat have complained about being unable to get warm, no matter how many layers they pile on. Each time, I tell them the same thing: Get a hot-water bottle. Sometimes they respond with, “What’s that?” Other times they aren’t convinced that something so small could change their life. Until they actually try it. Then I can’t get them to stop talking about it. “Best tip ever,” or “I bought two: one for feet and one for body.” This past week on the East Coast has been brutal. One of the coldest New Year’s Eves on record, and with no sign of respite, I have practically been surgically attached to my HWB. During the day at my desk, I sit with one in my lap to afford me just the right level of warmth. There’s no sweating, no overheating, no gloves indoors à la Cameron Diaz in The Holiday. Not just any hot-water bottle will do, though. My favorite is the Attmu, which is made of thermoplastic rather than rubber, meaning that it holds heat longer. It also comes with its own handsome cable-knit cover, which provides a necessary buffer for your very hot bottle. It’s the ultimate luxury, like swaddling a little bundle of warmth with no danger of sparking an electrical fire or risking nasty burns. As a longtime user, I’ve discovered a few tips for how best to use your HWB. Fill it about two-thirds of the way with hot water that’s just under boiling (I use a kettle). While it will stay warm all night in bed, during the day you will need to replenish it a few times to maintain maximum heat. Expel the air from the bottle gradually as you fill it, or the water can spit out in tiny scalding droplets. And don’t worry if after two years it wears thin and leaks — hot-water bottles are meant to be replaced. The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best women’s jeans, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, ultra-flattering pants, and bath towels.

The 4 Best Hot Water Bottles – Bustle
Cold Or Achey? These Hot Water Bottles Can HelpWhether you’re trying to ease aches or simply want to warm up, the best hot water bottles can provide a simple solution that’s easy to use — whether or not you prefer the old school version. Traditional hot water bottles are designed to be filled with hot water, and they are available in different materials and styles. But if filling a bottle with hot water sounds precarious to you, opt for a microwavable version or a pre-filled electric bottle you simply plug in to reheat. Most hot water bottles are made from rubber or thermoplastic, both of which are durable and provide targeted heat. Rubber can be thicker than thermoplastic, which means it may take you longer to feel the heat of the hot water, but it can also provide more insulation from a too-hot bottle. However, if you’re allergic to latex, a thermoplastic hot water bottle could make for a better alternative. Thermoplastic bottles stay warmer for longer and are transparent, which makes it easy to quickly check the water level. The downside to thermoplastic bottles is that they tend to be more susceptible to tears and leaks than classic rubber versions. Hot water bottles can come with a ribbed texture that will disperse the heat across the bottle so it doesn’t feel too intense. A smooth texture is better for producing targeted heat. To protect yourself from getting burned, always create a barrier between the hot water bottle and your skin such as a towel or using a hot water bottle cover. Some water bottles include covers, but you can also purchase them separately.If you don’t want to mess with heating up water in advance, a microwavable silicone hot water bottle is a good choice — just fill it with water, seal it up, and heat it in the microwave. If you want fast, long-lasting heat, electric hot water bottles can be a great option — but unlike non-electric versions, they typically can’t be chilled for use as cold compresses, too.Here is my roundup of the best hot water bottles for easing pain and keeping chills at bay to help you choose the right option for you.1. A Classic Rubber Hot Water BottleThe HomeTop classic hot water bottle is made from natural rubber that’s smooth on one side of the bottle and ribbed on the other. This hot water bottle features a copper bottleneck with a leak-proof stopper to prevent spills. It holds 2 liters of water, can be used for both heat and cold therapy, and stays warm or cold for up to four hours. It’s available in four colors to match your style — plus, it includes a lifetime guarantee. There’s no cover included, but you can purchase one separately or opt for one of HomeTop’s cute water bottle sets.Positive Amazon review: “This well-designed bottle has a threaded metal neck inside the bottle that the screw top firmly and completely seals too, and the thick natural rubber holds heat a long time. Highly recommended.”2. A Thermoplastic Bottle With A Fuzzy CoverLooking for something extra cozy? The Hugo Frosch hot water bottle is a great option. The 1.8-liter thermoplastic water bottle includes a faux fur cover that’s silky soft to the touch, offering plush comfort along with soothing heat. It can stay hot for up to eight hours and has an extra-wide mouth for easy filling. You can even fill it with icy water or freeze it to use as a cold compress. Positive Amazon review: “I could give this item 100 stars. The water bottle itself is strong and durable – it must be thicker than the last one I owned because it seems to stay hot for so much…
20 Best Hot Water Bottles, Starting at £6 – Women's Health
Dealing with Savage Period Pains? One of These 20 Hot Water Bottles Might Help The winter is officially here so it’s time for cosy evenings snuggled up on the sofa with a good film. And a permanent fixture in these months? A trusty hot water bottle to help you stay warm – and feel relaxed. Yup, there’s not much better on a chilly evening than getting into a pre-warmed bed – sometimes, it’s the little things, right? These hardworking little numbers have other uses, too. After a tough workout, you can use one to help relax aching muscles and, if you’ve got period cramps, the pain relief from the heat can be really helpful to allow you to drift off to sleep. There are plenty of cute designs to choose from, too, in a range of shapes and sizes depending on your needs. We’ve rounded up 12 of our favourite picks for 2021, including mini ones for taking with you on-the-go, extra-long ones for wrapping around you on the sofa to your classic fluffy numbers for soothing joint pain when you’ve been going hard with your workouts. How to fill your hot water bottle It’s best to fill your bottle with water boiled from the kettle or on the stove top rather than from the tap as it will stay warmer for longer, thus keeping you snug throughout the night. For safety concerns, wait a minute or two for it to cool slightly before carefully filling the bottle over the sink. It should be toasty but not be uncomfortably so when initially filled, so if you tend to find water bottles are too hot to hold against you when filled straight from the kettle, add some cold tap water first. Don’t ever use a hot water bottle without a cover – it will be far too hot against your skin and could cause burns. Finally, don’t overfill your bottle – two thirds full should be more than enough. 20 hot water bottles for winter 2021 Best spotty hot water bottle Dunelm dunelm.com Dottie Black Hot Water Bottle Best long hot water bottle YuYu Bottle anthropologie.com Hot Water Bottle Best wool hot water bottle Weewoolies etsy.com Felted Merino Wool Hot Water Bottle Best extra fluffy hot water bottle Graham & Green grahamandgreen.co.uk Sheepskin Hot Water Bottle Cover Best gift hot water bottle Boden boden.co.uk Velvet Hot Water Bottle Best embroidered hot water bottle Oliver Bonas oliverbonas.com Bonne Nuit Hot Water Bottle Best luxury hot water bottle wolfandbadger.com Silk Velvet Hot Water Bottle Gold Best festive hot water bottle Heathcote & Ivory johnlewis.com Wild Wonder & Joy Hot Water Bottle Best patterned water bottle Izzi Rainey Black Dandelion Hot Water Bottle Best customisable hot water bottle Catherine Colebrook notonthehighstreet.com Liberty Personalised Hot Water Bottle Best neck hot water bottle Teddy Bear dunelm.com Teddy Neck Hot Water Bottle Best fluffy hot water bottle amara.com Sheepskin Hot Water Bottle Blumtal amazon.co.uk Faux fur hot water bottle Donna Wilson amara.com Seal Hot Water Bottle Best long hot water bottle Hodge & Hodge amazon.co.uk Extra long slim hot water bottle Best budget hot water bottle Cassandra argos.co.uk Chunky knit hot water bottle Best mini hot water bottle notonthehighstreet.com Mini Hot Water Bottle Best personalised hot water bottle notonthehighstreet.com Personalised Initial Hot Water Bottle Mamu Studios wolfandbadger.com Dark Grey Hot Water Bottle Best round hot water bottle Futon Company futoncompany.co.uk Round Deep Fleece Hot Water Bottle
