CONS

The water comes out too slow. 

OUR VERDICT

The Ion8 Leakproof Slim Water Bottle is an excellent gym bottle. It is everything that the name suggests and then some for good measure. When closed, the hypoallergenic silicon completely seals the spout and vent, keeping the mouth secure and leakproof.

CONS

The bottle is fairly heavy. 

OUR VERDICT

The MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle juggles practicality and aesthetics better than any water bottle we've looked at. Also, the wide 1.94-inch mouth allows for rapid hydration and lets you easily drop ice cubes/fruit slices into the bottle.

PROS

The product comes supplied with two lids: screw top lid and sucker top lid. The first one will be able to keep the bottle spill-free, while the second will let kids make small gulps. The unicorn head logo and the name on the front don't start fading over time (provided you hand wash the bottle). 

CONS

The screw top lid has that chemical smell at first that usually goes away after 1-2 washes. 

OUR VERDICT

The Tigerlilyprints Personalised Water Bottle is all about that "personalised" part. The unicorn head on the bottle's front already makes the product interesting enough to stand out from boring pedestrian bottles. Below that unicorn head, you can add any name, making the bottle as personalised as they come.

Chilly's Leak-Proof

Eliminating Condensation and Spills

Chilly's Leakproof Water Bottle incorporates double-wall insulation, meaning that the temperature inside the bottle doesn't get affected by the outside temperature. The bottle will have no issues keeping the drink hot/cold for 12/24 hours respectively.

The high-grade 304 stainless steel composition makes the company's bottles tough and durable. These food-grade, rust- and corrosion-resistant bottles will be able to stay more than usable for years to come.

The only problem we have with these metal bottles longevity-wise is that the housing is susceptible to scratches, which is a shame since the company's distinctive style makes these bottles look sleek and trendy, so we wouldn't recommend scratching them.

The bottle's airtight seal pretty much eliminates any accidental spills, maintaining leakproof performance no matter what. The BPA-free, phthalate-free, and toxin-free composition makes the company's bottles reusable, so you won't be increasing your environmental footprint.

Last but not least, the two-ply construction prevents condensation and water build-up, meaning that you can take these reusable water bottles with you on the go without worrying about water rings and/or slippery hands.

To sum up, you could easily make an argument that Chilly's Leakproof Water Bottles are up there with the best insulated bottles on the market. These things are stylish, durable, and practical. You can take them anywhere you go and the bottles will likely prove more than useful.

Mango Motivational

Keeping You Motivated

The Mango Sports Motivational Water Bottle just might be able to keep you motivated.

Incorporating a scale on the outer wall that motivates and reminds you how much water you should've consumed by a certain hour, the bottle keeps you accountable and helps you keep yourself hydrated.

Of course, one might argue that these etchings are gimmicky at best but that's okay since the bottle's biggest strengths don't have anything to do with the scale.

First and foremost, the 900-ml bottle is massive and extremely practical. It will be enough to keep you hydrated for half a day. At the same time, the large screw cap and the bottle's wide mouth will let you refill the bottle quickly and easily.

Plus, you won’t even have to remove the cap to drink from the bottle. Fitted with this leakproof flip nozzle and a removable straw, the model lets you comfortably drink water on the go.

Composition-wise, the Tritan™ plastic is as sturdy and long-lasting as they come. Its BPA-free, non-toxic, and phthalate-free build makes the bottle reusable and recyclable too.

Bottom line, the Mango Sports Motivational Water Bottle is brilliant for sports and hiking. The carry handle will let you easily carry the bottle even with wet hands. Plus, you can hook the handle to any carabiner so you won't have to carry this drink bottle yourself.

Ion8 Slim

Bring to the Gym

The Ion8 Leakproof Slim Water Bottle is everything that the name suggests and then some for good measure. When closed, the hypoallergenic silicon completely seals the spout and vent, keeping the mouth secure and leakproof.

To prevent the bottle from accidentally opening inside the bag, there's this locking mechanism that you can easily manipulate with one hand. At the same time, the flip-top springs open when you trigger the switch, making the bottle especially accessible.

You don't have to deal with screw tops here. The bottle doesn't incorporate any traditional tough nozzle that might make things difficult. Everything's streamlined here.

The pouring spout is hidden under this hard shell, keeping things clean, fresh, and hygienic. You won't have to wipe the spout. The only downside is that the spout doesn't necessarily allow for rapid hydration since it is pretty slim.

You can always unscrew the top though and drink from the wide mouth. That wide mouth enables quick refills without spillage, making this portable bottle easy to clean and easy to add fruits or ice cubes. The cap's soft grip and the bottle's grippy surface make twisting open easy.

In short, the Ion8 Leakproof Slim Water Bottle is an excellent gym bottle. You'll be able to stay hydrated without paying too much attention to the bottle.

MIU COLOR Glass

Glass is Better

The MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle looks brilliant.

The high-quality Borosilicate glass is clear, durable, lightweight, as well as odour- and temperature-resistant. At the same time, unlike plastic, this glass here is biodegradable and recyclable.

The only disappointing factor regarding the bottle's glass composition is that it makes the bottle fairly heavy compared to its plastic peers.

Generally speaking, glass bottles aren't that grippy since the material is unable to prevent condensation and water build-ups.

That's where the silicone sleeve comes in. The sleeve offers a soft tactile impression (it is surprisingly pleasant to the touch). It lets you easily grab and hold the bottle with wet hands. The sleeve adds decoration points, making the bottle look unique and tasteful. At the same time, the silicone sleeve protects the bottle from drop damage.

The leakproof lid with its silicone seal locks the bottle to prevent leaks and spills, making the model especially suitable for the gym and/or travel.

Meanwhile, the wide 1.94-inch mouth allows for rapid hydration and lets you easily drop ice cubes/fruit slices into the bottle.

Long story short, the MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle juggles practicality and aesthetics better than any water bottle we've looked at. There's no setting where the bottle will look out of place and won't prove necessary.

tigerlilyprints Personalised

Goes With the Unicorn

The Tigerlilyprints Personalised Water Bottle is all about that "personalised" part. The unicorn head on the bottle's front already makes the product interesting enough to stand out from boring pedestrian bottles. Below that unicorn head, you can add any name, making the bottle as personalised as they come.

As you'd imagine, the pink/purple colour palette means that the product's designed for girls first and foremost but you can buy this bottle for anyone, unicorns are brilliant and unisex, they don't discriminate.

The bottle measures ~23 x 6 centimetres and 400 millilitres volume-wise. it is not enough to keep adults hydrated for long but more than enough to sustain children throughout the school day.

The product comes supplied with two lids: screw top lid and sucker top lid. The first one will be able to keep the bottle spill-free, while the second will let kids make small gulps.

The screw top lid has that chemical/plastic smell at first that usually goes away after 1-2 washes.

The unicorn head logo and the name on the front don't start fading over time (provided you handwash the bottle).

In closing, there probably aren't too many children that won't appreciate this Tigerlilyprints Personalised Water Bottle. It is cute and as handy as they come.

What Is a Water Bottle?

Water bottles come in different shapes (well, somewhat different) and sizes but there's one thing we can say for sure: these things are absolutely necessary because regular plastic bottles are killing the planet. Besides, these bottles are much more practical than standard plastic ones.

First and foremost, good water bottles usually come equipped with some locking mechanism that makes sure these bottles don't accidentally open.

Apart from that, some models incorporate double-wall insulation, meaning that they're able to keep the drinks hot and cold for much longer than standard bottles.

Sometimes, these water bottles come fitted with some built-in straw, letting you drink on the go without slowing down.

Other times, these bottles feature spouts that enable you to take small gulps and removable caps with wide mouthes to let you quickly and easily fill the bottle without spillage.

Besides that, pay attention to the materials behind these things and things like handles/straps that you can use to carry the bottle differently.

Bottle warmers work wonders with these water bottles, by the way. Sometimes though, travel mugs are better.
