From Nalgene To Hydroflask to Brita— Here's A Guide To The 7 Best Water Bottles On Amazon

For eco-friendly hydration on the go, you need one of the best water bottles on Amazon. I’ve rounded up picks for every occasion — from traveling to hiking to running errands. Whatever your lifestyle, there’s bound to be a water bottle for you among the selections below.

You probably already know to avoid BPA, a chemical that can affect hormones, in plastic products that have contact with food and drink. Materials like silicone, glass, and stainless steel are naturally BPA-free, but know that glass is often cited as the safest material for reusable water bottles. For more durability and safety, stainless steel and silicone are great, but with the wider availability of BPA-free plastic water bottles they're also a great, durable option.

Besides material, the best water bottles for you will probably boil down to features that best suit your lifestyle and personal preferences. These days you can choose from travel-friendly picks that are made of collapsible silicone and squirt bottles for sports and working out. My stainless-steel pick can weather the great outdoors and my wide-mouth options are easier to fill and clean. You can also go for features like built-in straws for easy sipping or built-in filters to make sure your water is fresh and clean no matter where you refill. Your choice regarding these features really comes down to how you think you'll use the water bottle.

Take a look at the best water bottles on Amazon.

If you think about it, this bottle will pay for itself many times over. I haven’t ran into issues with the durability or anything like that. I have the orchid color; and it’s gorgeous. Water is very easy to drink and it tastes clean. If you’re thinking about buying one, I would go ahead and do so. Great quality investment, and it also makes drinking water so much easier surprisingly!"

It holds a good amount of water, it's fairly durable for being made of glass. [The] cap is stainless (no plastic!) and has a really convenient loop for keeping the lid with the bottle that also works for carrying it around. [...] I have had this one for months though and dropped it a few times with no damage. [...] It's super easy to clean and doesn't get any lingering odor or anything.
