There’s a reason Hydro Flask water bottles are so popular (they even went viral on Instagram one time). For one, they’re stainless steel, so they’ll keep your drink cold or hot for hours to come. Plus, they’re the perfect size for tucking into car cupholders, and they have a handle for carrying elsewhere. Another good reason: Hydro Flask water bottles come with a limited lifetime warranty, so you know they’re built to last.

If you’re worried about drinking tap water, this Brita bottle comes with a filter for reducing chlorine. (And yes, if you’re wondering, this is the same Brita as the filters and water pitchers you may have in your fridge.) One filter can replace 300 single-use plastic water bottles or filter up to 40 gallons of water. The bottle also features an easy-sip straw, a carrying loop and a one-handed push button lid.

If you like a lightweight, no-fuss water bottle with a straw, go with this one from Contigo. The angled pop-up straw can help you sip up every last drop of water. It’s also clear, so it’s easy to see how much water you have left or if you need to clean it. (Pro tip: Clean all water bottles daily.) The Contigo water bottle is also top-rack dishwasher safe, so that’s a plus.

People love this large half-gallon water bottle! If you have trouble remembering to hydrate, it has motivational sayings on the side along with times of the day to keep you on track. The markers count down by 8 ounces at a time. So, by 7 a.m., you should drink about 8 ounces of water, and by 9 a.m., about 16 ounces in total, according to this water bottle. When filled, it may be a little heavier to carry than the average water bottle, but it does have a large and sturdy handle.
