WIRECUTTER: The Best Water Bottles

Because there are so many good water bottles, we’ve chosen six other favorites from over half a decade of testing, in a number of materials and styles, so you’re sure to find something that works for you.

Takeya 24oz Actives

A unique and useful cap

Easier to use than a sports cap, the spout on this bottle is easy to drink from, and the flip lid stays secure and out of your face. The bottle’s wide mouth lets you easily add ice and supplements, too.

If you would like a bottle with a lid that’s easier to drink from while moving, one that may fully close more reliably than a sport cap, you might want a spout lid. The best bottle-and-spout combination we’ve found is on the Takeya 24oz Actives. This is a double-walled, stainless steel bottle with a plastic lid that screws off to reveal a wide mouth opening that’s easy to add ice, fruit, or supplements through. We preferred this design wholeheartedly to the rubberized sport caps on other bottles. Those don’t account for human error—they’re too easy to accidentally leave half-open. With the Takeya, you know it’s closed. It’s designed with gym goers in mind, but even if you wouldn’t be caught dead in a gym, the cap makes itself useful any time you may be drinking on the go.
