Everyone knows that staying hydrated is essential to enjoying summer (or any season) in a healthy way. Carrying a reusable bottle is a great habit to get into, but how to choose the one that’s right for you? To make the choice a little easier, here are five of our favorites:
Klean Kanteen: One of the first stainless steel options to hit the market back in the early 2000′s, the Klean Kanteen now comes in a variety of styles with options for different mouth openings. Rounded corners make the bottles easy to clean and an electropolished interior ensures the metal won’t retain flavors.
S’well: These beautifully-crafted bottles’ claim to fame is that they keep drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. They even hold carbonation! Made of non-toxic, non-leaching stainless steel, S’well bottles come in lots of colors and finishes.
Nalgene: A popular option among those who prefer plastic bottles. BPA-free and virtually indestructible, Nalgenes even come in a 32-ounce size for the extra thirsty.
Camelbak: The first Camelbak was created by a competitive cyclist back in 1989 and consisted of an IV bag filled with water and stuffed into a tube sock. Today, the bottles are available in plastic, stainless steel, glass, filtering, and insulated options. (P.S. Wondering how much water you should be drinking each day? Use their clever hydration calculator to find out.)
Lifefactory: A lovely glass version housed in a pretty and protective silicone sleeve. The wide mouth makes it easy to add ice cubes, citrus slices, or tea bags. Also great for smoothies!
