Regular hydration is imperative, but most occasions don’t call for a military-grade canteen. Designed for the changing demands of modern life, today’s high-tech vessels feature a range of sizes, materials, and functions. Think before you drink with the help of our handy guide.

KOR Aura Water Bottle For the Gym: KOR Aura Water Bottle
Endurance starts here. Made from a durable BPA-free and FDA-approved proprietary material, this bottle has a sleek, ergonomic shape that fits easily in your bag (or your hand, during circuit workouts). Other features include a carrying handle, a wide (read: chug-friendly) threadless spout, and a covered cap to keep out germs—so you can sip as you sweat.

Mizu M4 Water Bottle For the Office: Mizu M4 Water Bottle
A smaller bottle is key in an office setting. Regular trips to the water cooler keep you moving at a sedentary gig—and are a great time to catch up with your colleagues. This 14-oz. bottle hits that sweet spot between a cup and a jug, making for comfortable sipping throughout the day. In BPA-free stainless steel with a matte, opaque finish, it keeps H2O super cool through epic meetings.

Izola Water Bottle For the Hiking Trail: Izola Water Bottle
The wilderness is one place you can’t afford to be left high and dry. In a generous 25-oz. size, this rucksack-ready stainless steel vessel is made to take a beating. Its classic thermos design is a functional throwback, insulating both hot and cold beverages without the risk of spillage.

KOR Nava Water Bottle For Traveling Abroad: KOR Nava Water Bottle
When filling up from airport water fountains and hotel taps, choose a container that emphasizes freshness and taste. Made from the same durable, BPA-free material as the Aura, this bottle features a filter of pure coconut shells, converted to activated carbon to eliminate unpalatable tastes and smells. A cushioned rubber base prevents slipping and protects surfaces…wherever they may be.

S'well 17 oz. Bottle For Saving the World: S’well 17 oz. Bottle
Any reusable water bottle will do wonders for your health, your wallet, and your planet. Go super green with one of S’well’s insulating vessels, which also come in 9-oz. and 25-oz. sizes. Each purchase will help fund clean drinking water for kids around the world—and the sale of any wood-finish bottle will also enable S’well to plant a tree with American forests.
