5 of the best status water bottles
1. S’well Original ($35)
“S’well has become the gold standard for stainless-steel water bottles," says Amina Lake Abdelrahman at Good Housekeeping. The vacuum-insulated vessels keep drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours, and the company frequently releases gorgeous new colors and designs. Buy it at Amazon.
2. Bkr Elle ($48)
“If there’s one bottle most likely to steal S’well’s throne as a fitness-class favorite, it’s the silicone-encased glass Bkr bottle," writes Karen at New York Magazine. The fashion-forward brand makes its grippy bottles in every pastel imaginable, and with either smooth or spiky silicone. Buy it at Amazon.
3. Soma ($35)
The other brand that popularized glass bottles favors a taller, slimmer design with a bamboo cap that looks handsome next to the exposed glass. Like the Bkr, the Soma is shatter resistant, dishwasher safe, and available in various colors. Buy it at Amazon.
4. Hydro Flask ($40)
“Suddenly, Hydro Flask seems to be the outdoor world’s water bottle of choice,” says Tim Newcomb in Popular Mechanics. Like Yeti, the Oregon brand makes rugged steel bottles that last forever. Hydro Flasks have a more distinctive look, though, with colorful, powder-coated exteriors. Buy it at Amazon.
5. Avana Beckridge ($45)
This sleek, stainless-steel newcomer combines double-wall insulation with a built-in straw that encourages more frequent sipping. It’s truly leakproof, too, and available in multiple shapes, sizes, and colors, including one that looks like a S’well. Buy it at Amazon.
