Water Bottles / Travel Mugs

Izola Water Bottles

Izola has a new collection of stainless steel bottles to keep water near at hand. With simple phrases like Onward & Upward and A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss, the bottles are true to the Izola aesthetic while providing functional storage for life’s essential liquid. There’s also a Blank Water Bottle (25 oz.) (and 10 oz.) if you prefer an all stainless steel look.

Therm-O Bottle

Hmm, this looks quite similar to the Noble Glass Thermos posted over a year ago, and if deductive reasoning is correct, we’ll assume it’s made by the same manufacturer. Made of borosilicate glass, this bottle will keep your beverages the temperature you want- hot tea or coffee will stay hot, cool ice water/beverages will stay cool. The double-wall feature keeps the outside surface free of condensation and heat, and it comes with a removable stainless steel tea strainer.

The Square by Clean Bottle

Don’t you feel better using your own water bottle? It’s better than sending a bunch of disposables to the landfill, that’s for sure, but there’s the tiny issue of keeping it clean. That’s where the The Square by Clean Bottle comes in. Both ends unscrew for easy cleaning and drying. It’s leak-proof, opens and closes quickly and the square shape won’t roll away if it tips over (it fits in most cup holders, don’t worry). The stainless-steel bottle won’t affect the taste of your water either.

LifeStraw Portable Water Filter

If you spend any time in the wilderness, you’d do well to add one of these to your emergency kit. It’s a water purifying straw that removes “99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of parasites without any use of chemicals.” That’ll be a lifesaver if you’re ever lost or- doomsday scenario- if some disaster strikes and makes the regular water supply unsafe to drink. Better to be prepared, right?

Citrus Zinger Water Bottle

If you prefer a little lemon or lime in your water, then you need to sit up and pay attention. The Citrus Zinger has a citrus press built into its bottom side, making it easy to extract juice from fruits and infuse them directly into your water bottle. No extra implements- just the bottle- for your preferred level of lemony (or limey?) water.

Cuppow Mason Jar Lid

Yeah I know, canning jars are extremely trendy right now, even more than the actual canning process. I’m drinking out of one in a coffee shop at this exact moment. But beyond fashion, they are simple and robust in their design, perfect for drinking glasses. However, the open top proves to be unwieldy when on-the-go. Cue the Cuppow, a plastic drinking lid designed to convert any mason jar into a spill-proof cup. The Cuppow gets bonus points for being manufactured in the United States, and at only $8, is quite affordable.

Stanley Adventure Multi Use Bottle

The Stanley Adventure Multi Use Bottle is your answer for a stainless steel travel bottle that has a bit more design consideration and function. It features a twist off body that converts to a cup, volume markings, as well as a regular quick drinking spout. Also, I imagine twisting it apart makes it that much easier to clean compared to the traditional steel/aluminum bottles with narrow necks, which require a cleansing tablet to thoroughly sanitize. Holds 32 oz and is dishwasher safe.

Eau Good Water Bottle

Here’s yet another water bottle for your consideration. The Eau Good Water Bottle features a stick of ‘Binchotan’ active charcoal which purifies tap water for up to 6 months. The bottle is made from BPA-free plastic and has an indent to keep the charcoal in place (smart) while a cork stopper keeps the water fresh. There’s also a carry tag for convenience. There’s a short video below so you can see a little more of the shape/size/etc.

Bkr Bottle

If you’ve still not found a water bottle that meets your aesthetic expectations, take a look at the Bkr Bottle. It’s a glass bottle with a silicone sleeve and has all the bullet points you need (see below) when it comes to a personal drinking vessel. Plus, the label/brand is unobtrusive, so you’ll not be a walking billboard.

LightCap: Solar Powered Lantern & Water Bottle

Add some solar power to the top of a water bottle and voilรƒย , you have yourself a lantern. FastSolar technology allows for up to 8 hours of light time and the one liter bottle could also double as a waterproof container for your wallet or cellphone. It’d be perfect for camping, wouldn’t it? More details below.

Bamboo Bottle

Finally, someone created a glass reusable water bottle that’s designed properly and looks awesome too. Other alternatives I’ve seen get pretty close, but I feel like this design certainly nails it. Besides the bamboo sleeve adding quite a bit of style, it fully protects the glass interior. Glass provides an always guaranteed safe drink and can accommodate hot or cold beverages. The parts of the bottle easily disassemble for cleaning and are dishwasher safe, except for the bamboo sleeve.

Bobble Water Bottle

Okay, now that this thing is actually available for sale, I’m curious as to how well it works. Anyone know? It sounds almost too good to be true. It’s made from BPA-free recycled plastic (so it’s also recyclable) and has a carbon-based filter which lasts about the equivalent of 300 water bottles. There’s six different filter colors to choose from too.

Designer: Karim Rashid

Bottle comes with a single filter. Filter lasts for 50 gallons/300 bottles.
(Replacement filters are $7.00)

TK:ARO Glass Water Bottle

That’s right, a glass water bottle that is reusable, recyclable, transportable and dishwasher safe. But what about the glass, hmm? Afraid it’ll break? As long as you keep it from “radical falls” it should be perfectly fine. (On the Tkaro website there’s also an engraved option if you want it customized; price is just slightly higher at $37.95.)

Equivalent to 2 cups or 500mL.
Do not place in freezer or microwave. Not suitable for hot beverages.

Vapur Bottle

The Vapur Bottle is a collapsible water bottle that folds flat when emptied. Perfect for traveling and commuting, reasonably priced too. I’m curious to see how durable it is and how well it stands up on its own.รฏยฟยฝ It’s dishwasher safe, comes with a carabiner for carrying, freezable, and has a writable text area for personalization.

Capacity: 16 oz (473 ml)
Material: Ultra-durable BPA-Free polymer
