  • The 10 Best Water Bottles with Straws – Reviews 2020

    1. Giotto Leakproof Drinking Water Bottle with straw – Best Overall1Giotto 32oz Leakproof BPA Free Drinking Water

    Giotto’s patented flip top, leakproof bottle is one of the best straw designs we’ve seen in a while. All the bonuses of a straw, but with none of the downsides!

    You’ll never have to wait to get a drink while driving or endanger yourself and others on the road again with the super simple flip top. Just one touch and up pops the dust cap and the straw. And the silicone mouthpiece ensures soft protection for any teeth or lip collisions.

    A plastic, BPA free bottle, the Giotto is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes, or just people who want to drink more water. You can accessorize your bottle with nearly any outfit, and the time reminders on the side help keep you fresh and hydrated.

    Pros
    • BPA and toxin-free material
    • Handy carrying strap
    • Leakproof top and straw
    • Dust cap, one-handed easy-open design
    • Soft, silicone mouthpiece
    • Cute colors and motivational words
    Cons
    • Not dishwasher safe

    2. CamelBak Eddy+ Water Bottle with Straw – Best Value2CamelBak Eddy+ BPA Free Water Bottle

    Great quality and affordable price don’t always go together. But in the case of CamelBak’s water bottles, you get way more than you pay for! This simple design is easy to clean, completely free of toxic materials, comes in fun colors, and is durable enough to bring on any adventure.

    Plus, the company is truly dedicated to customer satisfaction. The best water bottle with straw for the money AND a lifetime warranty? Now that’s a solid investment.

    Folks who do not want to draw unnecessary attention to themselves should note that the biggest complaint we have with this water bottle is the loud noise the straw makes when you sip. Some don’t mind the whistle, but others found it annoying and distracting.

    Pros
    • Sturdy, BPA free plastic
    • Silicone mouthpiece
    • Lids compatible with all CamelBak bottle sizes
    • Cheaper than your last coffee date
    • Lifetime warranty
    Cons
    • No insulation
    • Loud sipping noise

    3. Glink Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Straw – Premium Choice3Glink Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Straw

    Though it is one of the more expensive options on our list, the Glink insulated water bottle makes up for that difference in quality and thoughtful touches. This temperature controlling, non-sweating, and quite chic bottle is made from stainless steel that will stand up to any abuse.

    Double-wall vacuum insulation keeps your hot drinks piping hot, and cold drinks refreshing. You can even choose between two lids: one made for coffees and teas, and a straw spout for water.

    The major point of concern for us is that the spouts are made from hard plastic. That and the heavier design make it an unsuitable choice for biking or running, as you run the risk of annoyance and minor injury from knocking your teeth against the unyielding surface.

    Pros
    • Exceptionally durable, non-porous stainless steel
    • Easy-to-carry handle
    • Insulated for heat and cold retention
    • Comes with straw cleaning brush
    • No condensation, grippy exterior
    Cons
    • Hard plastic spout
    • Neither dishwasher nor microwave safe

    4. Contigo 2076624 Stainless Steel Water Bottle4Contigo Stainless Steel Water Bottle

    For those who like their water ice-cold, the small and sturdy Contigo may be just right. It boasts 12-18 hours of cold insulation, one-touch pop-up straw, and a soft spout for sipping. Small and easy to carry, the stainless-steel construction is sturdy but not bulky.

    With that said, there are a few things to keep in mind for this bottle. Though they claim it to be “leakproof” we noticed that this isn’t quite true. We do not recommend tossing this water bottle into a backpack and going about your day, as you are bound to find a damp book or two after a while.

    Also, the design for the cap means that you must clean it regularly and thoroughly. The shape can harbor nasty bacteria and molds if left unattended.

    Pros
    • Tough, stainless steel construction
    • Insulates beverages for up to 12 hours
    • One-handed operation
    • Costs less than 6 organic bananas
    Cons
    • Claims of “leakproof” prove exaggerated
    • Cap design can trap bacteria

    5. Iron Flask Sports Water Bottle5Iron Flask Sports Water Bottle

    If insulation is what you’re after with a water bottle, then the Iron Flask is where it’s at. Their double insulated design boasts 12+ hours of keeping hot drinks to temperature and 24 hours for cold!

    This durable, stainless steel water bottle comes with every type of lid you could want and in many attractive colors.

    Truthfully, our least favorite part about the Iron Flask is small but important: the mouthpiece is hard and clacks uncomfortably against teeth if you aren’t careful. We don’t recommend this model for workouts or runs, but for insulation, it’s a great deal.

    Pros
    • Stainless steel, durable and no toxins
    • Double insulated, no condensation
    • Comes with 3 types of lids
    Cons
    • Not dishwasher safe
    • Rigid plastic mouthpiece

    6. ICONIQ Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle6ICONIQ 18 oz X Bottle

    ICONIQ uses three layers of insulation to give you a great temperature control water bottle that will stand up to small dents and drops. We tried letting one of our kids use it for a while, and even after weeks of rough handling, it was still up to the task!

    Perhaps our favorite part is the fact that it is also dishwasher safe. Many insulated bottles cannot be washed so easily, and this is a refreshing change.

    It is rather heavy for its size (that must be the third copper insulation layer) and was a bit of a pain to tote around while working out, and we were not fans of the mouthpiece. The spout is hard plastic, and we had to be especially careful getting a drink in a hurry – lest lips get busted or teeth clack uncomfortably.

    Pros
    • Dishwasher safe, easy clean design
    • Triple insulated, keeps cool for 24 hours
    • Highly durable body, lid, and straw
    • Lifetime warranty
    Cons
    • Straw draws unnecessary air
    • Hard mouthpiece
    • Heavy for the size

    7. Thermoflask 50054 Double Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle7Thermoflask Double Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle

    The Thermoflask stainless steel water bottle is moderately priced, well insulated, and made from exceptionally safe materials. If the straw is in the proper position it provides leak-free operation and can keep liquids cold for up to 24 hours.

    Unfortunately, this model is also notorious for losing many of its highly lauded features to small bumps and nicks. Any dent in the bottle can invalidate the careful insulation, which means it will sweat like other bottles and no longer keeps drinks at temperature.

    As a work thermos, Thermoflask can be great. But for more active pursuits that hold the risk of dropping or knocking it against surfaces, better leave this one at home.

    Pros
    • Toxin-free materials
    • Convenient carrying handle
    • Leak and condensation-free
    Cons
    • Bottle and straw cannot go in dishwasher
    • Hard mouthpiece
    • Noisy sipping, draws large amounts of air
    • Dents influence insulation features

    8. Takeya Actives Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Straw8Takeya Actives Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle

    The Takeya insulated stainless-steel bottle is far more durable than similar designs for taking to the gym and outdoors. It has specially placed silicone strips and sleeves to provide solid grip and dent protection, even with the sweatiest of hands!

    However, we noticed that the lids are where the durability begins to fail. Though they are insulated and work great initially, there is a significant likelihood that you will need to replace your lid at least once a year. The company has a great warranty, but the hassle may not be worth it in the end.

    Pros
    • Rust-resistant, BPA free stainless steel
    • Includes protective bumper to minimize denting
    • Strategic silicone bands provide extra grip
    Cons
    • Hard plastic straw, tough on teeth
    • Not safe for dishwashers
    • Cap is poorly designed, deteriorates eventually

    9. Hydro Flask Wide Mouth 2.0 Water Bottle9Hydro Flask Water Bottle

    Many insulated water bottles lose their integrity quickly once there is even a small dent or ding in the body. Hydro Flasks are incredibly durable and maintain their insulation with anything but extreme damage. Talk about the perfect outdoor water bottle!

    But alas, it may be harder to get that true Hydro Flask construction than you think. This water bottle is by far the most expensive on our list. And though it is actually worth it for the quality, there are many companies which will try to trick you with cheaply made products at the same price.

    Between dodging knockoffs that are trying to gouge you for cash, and the hefty price tag getting, an authentic Hydro Flash may be more work than you’re willing to put in for a water bottle.

    Pros
    • Dishwasher safe, easy to clean
    • Super durable, dents don’t compromise function
    • Keeps liquid cool for 24 hours
    Cons
    • Most expensive water bottle on our list
    • Cheap knockoffs may try to con you

    10. Venture Pal Motivational Fitness Sports Water Bottle10Venture Pal 32oz Motivational Fitness Sports Water Bottle

    Venture Pal makes a toxin-free plastic bottle that is colorful, comfortable to drink from and tote around, and includes helpful hydration reminders on the side. While fun, the durability leaves something to be desired.

    We noticed after only a short time that these water bottles are not best suited for outdoor use or during workouts. When dropped from even a small height, they have the tendency to crack and break. With this glaring lack of quality and versatility, the mid-range price may be too high for some.

    Pros
    • Flexible, sturdy carrying strap
    • Comfortable mouthpiece
    • Beautiful colors, hydration reminders on side
    Cons
    • No insulation, cold liquids cause sweat
    • Fragile, does not withstand small falls
    • Cannot be put in dishwasher

    Buyer’s Guide

    Who Is Your Water Bottle For?

    The first questions to ask yourself when shopping for a new water bottle are: who is it for, and what is its purpose? The right water bottle for a toddler is going to differ from that of the yogi that wants to sip their yerba mate anywhere, or the climbing enthusiast who is hard on gear.

    Large volume, heat insulation, rough and tough design — once you know the purpose of the item, you can figure out which features matter the most to you.

    Materials

    The materials your water bottle is made from will determine durability and price, of course, but also safety. Certain chemicals can leach into your drink, or broken glass can pose an injury risk.

    Here’s a quick look at the most common materials and what to look out for:
    • Glass: moderately priced, heavy, breakable, non-porous, best for warm or cold beverages
    • Metal: expensive, medium weight, incredibly durable, non-porous, can stand up to extremely hot or cold beverages
    • Plastic: cheap, light, sturdy, porous, not suitable for hot beverages, avoid those that contain BPA or phthalates

    Conclusion

    Giotto Leakproof Drinking Water Bottle with straw proved to be the best overall with its truly leakproof design, comfortable mouthpiece, and reasonable price.

    And our best value pick is the CamelBak Eddy+ Water Bottle with StrawCamelBak Eddy+ Water Bottle with Straw, which impressed us on price, quality, and their limited lifetime warranty.

    The sheer number of water bottles on the market is overwhelming and a bit ridiculous. But that’s why we compiled this list of quality products to narrow the scope. With this huge list of reviews and handy buying tips, you’ll never have to go without hydration again!

    Happy hydrating!
