Chances are high that you've been seeing these colorful bottles popping up at your local gym, crag, and campsites over the last few years. A combination of style, simplicity, and insulated stainless steel, with a solid dose of overall utility, make this bottle such a high performer. In our tests, it proved easy to use, resistant to residual flavors, and very quick and easy to clean. We used it to take our hot coffee or cold juice into the office, as well as on cold-weather day trips to the outdoors for hot sips throughout the day. Additionally, the company proved to us that they truly value their customers when the cap broke in our drop test. This award winner scored very well in our tests and beat out the competition to win our Editors' Choice Award.
Wide-mouth bottles aren't for everyone, and Hydro Flask recognizes this. The 24 oz Standard Mouth bottles offer the same basic design and are available in over a dozen colors, but have a smaller diameter opening for easier drinking, especially when moving. The lower volume also equates to a lower price, costing $35 from the manufacturer. Two caps are available for the Standard Mouth bottles, the Sports or Flex caps.
If you don't need the insulation, but still want to go stainless steel, check out the lightweight Miir Slate 27. And if you're balking at the price tag on this one and don't mind drinking from plastic, our Best Buy Award winner, the Nalgene Wide-Mouth, is a time-tested favorite.
