Insulated water bottles are a gift from the gods themselves. No longer do you have to be a slave to water that tastes like room temperature cat piss mixed with delicious plastic after only twenty minutes, nor to ice cubes that melt faster than an Antarctic ice shelf in a post global warming world. No, thanks to insulated water bottles, you can chill (see what I did there?) all day long, and sip your water or coffee or whatever you’ve got in there, in peace.
But you want to make sure you get a good insulated water bottle, not some cheap piece of crap that is going to rust out on you after six months or leech god knows what into your water. That’s no bueno, friends. No bueno at all.
And so, just for you, here are the 15 best insulated water bottles perfect for all your hydration needs.
This vacuum-insulated ice shaker bottle was developed by former NFL player Chris Gronkowski, Rob Gronkowski’s older brother. The ideal application for the 26 oz Ice Shaker is the gym, as one of the most premium protein shakers on the market: It’s sweat-free, easy to carry, and spill-proof. BUT ALSO, in true Gronk form, all of those things make it the ideal cup for bro-ing out this summer and fall: You can mix a margarita in it and take it to the pool without worrying about spilling it when you’re chillin’ with babes on your pizza-float. They’re totally customizable, too, which makes them a great bachelor party or groomsmen gift. Holds ice for 30 hours.
As a special deal for the Bros of the world, Chris Gronkowski is offering BroBible readers 5% off their order via IceShaker.com. JUST USE THE CODE “BROS” UPON CHECKOUT.
This leak/sweat-proof water bottle is double-wall insulated, which allows your cold beverages to stay cold for up to 24 hours, and your hot beverages, like coffee, to stay hot for up to 12. It also comes with a lifetime warranty, which is always nice. Oh, and a quick note before we go any further: the price for this is for the 20oz model. You can also order a bigger size, and I’ll let you know throughout when you can do that. Cool? Cool.
This water bottle is listed as “Amazon’s Choice,” so maybe take that into consideration. It’s got a 24/12 cold/hot rating, and the wide mouth is a nice feature, especially when it comes to cleaning. It’s also bigger than your average water bottle at 40oz, which means that yes, you can keep an entire King Cobra or Mickey’s or Steel Reserve or whatever your pleasure is as a gentleman in there. It’s also available in a couple of colors and sizes.
This water bottle only comes in one size – 35oz – but it does come with two different lids, each of which give you a little something different. One of them comes with a carabiner attached so you can just loop it to your pack or whatever and off you go. The silicone ring on the cap ensures that you’ll never have to worry about dripping, which is always nice.
This 25oz bottle is rated 24/12 for cold/hot beverages, and while you can only get it in the one size, you have a variety of colors and designs to choose from. It also comes with a bonus “flip n sip” sports cap, which allows you quick and easy access while you’re working out or on the go.
The 17oz size is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to have to lug around a big heavy bottle all day, and you’ll be hard pressed to find another water bottle that has such a wide selection of colors and designs to choose from. You can truly make this water bottle your own.
This wide-mouthed water bottle is available in a variety of colors and sizes. It also includes a handy carabiner, but what really sets it apart is that it doesn’t just adhere to a standard 24/12 hot/cold rating, it also adds a category, billing itself as a 24/12/6 water bottle. So, what does the 6 stand for? Well, it means that not only will your coffee or tea or whatever stay hot for 12 hours, it will stay “piping hot” for 6 hours, giving it that freshly made feeling that other water bottles can’t give you.
Available either at 25oz or 17oz, this clean and cool metallic looking water bottle cuts through all the cutesy designs and just gives you a damn good water bottle that will serve you well for years to come. And thanks to that clean, efficient design, which keeps costs down, you can get it for a great price.
This wide-mouthed water bottle is rated at 24/6 cold/hot, which is on the low end compared to some other water bottles, but what it does offer is a slip-free exterior finish, which means that you can keep a good grip on it no matter the conditions. It also comes in a variety of colors and sizes, including up to a mammoth 64oz, which is the size of a goddamn two-liter of soda. This is a water bottle that you take on long trips.
The Iron Flask! Now that’s the name of a man’s water bottle, baby! This 24/12 cold/hot rated water bottle comes with a powder coat finish, which gives it a classic – and durable – look. It’s available in black or blue (of course) and comes in a couple of different sizes. It also comes with three different lids, giving it versatility that most water bottles can’t match.
This 21oz water bottle is a little different. It’s only for cold drinks, not hot. But that’s because it’s designed to mimic a traditional sports workout water bottle. I mean, it can be kind of tough to carry a stainless-steel water bottle during your workout, right? Well, you sacrifice hot liquids with this water bottle, but in return you get a kickass workout water bottle that will keep your water ice cold the entire time. It’s also available in a variety of colors/designs.
This 32oz, 24/12 cold/hot rated water bottle gives you added versatility with three different lids. And the powder coated matte finish, available in several different colors, never sweats. And the 100% lifetime warranty means, well, that you should be all set in the water bottle department for life.
This 32oz water bottle promises not just the standard 24/12 cold/hot. It promises that the “12” isn’t just hot, but “piping hot,” which as we discussed before is different than just “hot.” Hence the different words and all. Ahem. Anyway, yeah, this is a great water bottle, and it also comes with three different lids and is available in several different colors.
That’s right, it’s an insulated tumbler! It also bills itself as a water bottle, so relax. Aside from being a tumbler, which is a cool little tweak, this 17oz water bottle is available in plenty of color options, and promises that it’s “odor resistant” which is always nice. Intriguingly, it’s rated as a 25/12 cold/hot water bottle. That’s right, that’s an extra hour of cold, which might not sound like much, but it does indicate that this water bottle’s insulation capabilities might be a touch better than the rest.
This 25oz water bottle, available in several colors, promises 36(!) hours of ice cold insulation. That’s pretty wild. It doesn’t say how long it keeps your hot liquids hot, but since the product description was apparently written by Jesse Pinkman (seriously, go read it for yourself) I’m inclined to trust it. He’s trying to go straight!
This 21oz water bottle, available in several colors, lives up its name with an incredible 36/13 cold/hot rating. That’s crazy, yo! Sorry, still stuck on Jesse Pinkman. Anyway, that 36/13 is something that no other water bottle can claim. None. And I’m pretty sure that makes this not only The Coldest Water Bottle, but the king of all water bottles.
