NY THE STRATEGIST: Stuff We Buy Ourselves: The Water Bottles Our Editors Carry

Posted on

If you follow our monthly Strategist Haul, you’re familiar with the idiosyncrasies of our editors’ and writers’ shopping habits. While we think of those as the highlights, there are plenty of other, less glamorous things we buy — and love — on the regular, too. So whether you’ve wondered about the work bags we tote around or the underwear we’re most loyal to, this is the Stuff We Buy Ourselves. In this edition, the water bottles our editors swear by.

Takeya Actives Insulated Stainless Water Bottle with Insulated Spout Lid
Takeya Actives Insulated Stainless Water Bottle with Insulated Spout Lid

A couple of Takeya water bottles were sent to the office, and I grabbed one for my husband, who was in the market for a gym water bottle. Turned out, Takeya’s “Actives” line was perfect for his needs. We were quite impressed with how thoughtfully designed the lid is. It has two parts: the bottle’s main, widemouthed lid twists off, but there’s also a smaller spout on top of the main lid with its own attached twist-off lid for “sports” drinking, which snaps back and stays in place when opened, so it doesn’t hit your face as you take a swig. The bottle’s main widemouthed opening is great, too, because you can easily drop in regular ice cubes instead of having to buy those silly water-bottle ice molds. (The bottle also keeps cold water cold for hours.) There’s even a little handle for easy transport, plus a removable silicone bumper at the bottom of the bottle to give it extra grip and protection. I’m tempted to get my own as a replacement for my current water bottle from a very popular brand (so I can stop stealing my husband’s).
