That’s why we have put together this curated list of the 10 crème de la crème of water bottles worth checking out in 2019. Hint: the first one will definitely knock your boots off.

 

First Things First: How to Pick the Right Water Bottle for You

Best Water Bottles for HikingNot all refillable water bottles are created equal. If you want to land the best water bottle, you need to keep a few things in mind:

  •      Filter or no filter? – If your tap water doesn’t taste great, you need a water bottle equipped with a filter system. This nifty feature will enhance immensely the flavor and quality of drinking water.
  •      Your Style – Given that there’s a sea of choice, it pays to choose a water bottle that marries well with your style and personality.
  •      Color – Some water bottles like Kool8 come in a choice of 5 fabulous colors. Get one in your fave color to add some pizzazz, style, and elegance to your life.
  •      Use & Lifestyle – The chances are good that you have an active lifestyle. If you need a water bottle for hiking, pick one that’s easy to clip to a karabiner. If you are a gym or biking enthusiast, stick with a bottle with a sports cap.
  •      Design – While a stylish design is all good and dandy, go for water bottles that are specially designed to be easy to clean. Pay particular attention to the nozzle design. You don’t want a water bottle that’ll harbor germs.
  •      Capacity – It should hold enough water and beverages to quench your thirst without having to go for many refills.

Now that you know what makes a great water bottle, let’s get cracking with our list, shall we?
