What will you use your water bottle for?
People need to stay hydrated in virtually every situation, but that doesn’t mean you have to use one bottle for everything. Make a list of the situations you plan to drink from a water bottle, and use this to guide your purchasing decision.
For instance, you might want to drink from your bottle at work or the gym or take it with you to travel or go hiking outdoors. These activities call for a high quality insulated water bottle that works well in almost any situation.
However, if you’re shopping for a water bottle that serves a specific purpose, additional factors come into play. If you love to ride a motorcycle long distance, you may want a hands-free water pack instead of a bottle. Or if you go backpacking in the remote wilderness, you may require an ultra-lightweight water bottle that won’t weigh you down.
Whatever activity you want to choose a water bottle for, get to know the pros and cons of each type, according to their material.
