We all know the importance of drinking enough water. It helps us stay hydrated, is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions, and keeps our skin looking young and fresh. In order to drink enough water during the day, you’ll want to keep it with you at all times. There are a lot of varieties of water bottles out there that come in varying shapes, sizes, and options — caps that twist on and off, straws, bottles that are better for sports — so no matter what you’re looking for, there’s a bottle for you.
We’ve scoured the market for the best water bottles in all categories, so whether you need your water perfectly cold, to take on a run, or just prefer a pretty bottle to look at that will inspire you to drink more, we have you covered.
The Iron °Flast sports water bottle is one of the most highly reviewed on Amazon because it’s pretty much thought of everything.

It comes in seven sizes and a myriad of colors, and it comes with three (yes, three) different lids.
The Yeti is another crowd favorite — and for good reason. Their ramblers are BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, and also have a no-sweat design, so your hands stay dry and your water stays cold for hours. It also comes in a ton of colors and a magnet-lock lid so you can avoid spills.

Both feature a double-layered, vacuum-insulated construction, “designed to keep beverages cold or hot for longer with our exclusive Therma-S’well Technology.” Plus, they are just gorgeous to look at.
