Investing in an insulated water bottle is something that everybody should be doing this year (if you’ve not already). With plenty of health benefits associated with staying hydrated and even more pros with straying away from plastic goods – it’s about time that everyone has a stainless steel buddy to call their own.

But not all water bottles are created equal and if you’re looking for a water bottle for life – taking the time to pick out the perfect hydration-device is key.

Struggling for ideas on where to start? Here are 5 insulated water bottles you should know about in 2019:

1. Kool 8

The Kool 8 stainless steel water bottle is about the most exciting water bottle to be released in 2019.  

With a long list of awards and recommendations, including the #1 best water bottle of 2019 (Overall), the bottle has a lot to live up to and it does not disappoint.

Inside the double-walled vacuum insulation, you’ll be able to keep your beverages cool for a full 24 hours or warm for a healthy 12. There’s industrial strength from the durable stainless steel, preventing wear and tear and scratches, keeping the bottle looking great for longer. There’s even a tea infuser for those who love the leaves so you can enjoy your favourite flavours wherever you are.

But it’s not just the hardware that’s so impressive with the Kool 8, but the company outlook and mission that really takes the biscuit. With every purchase, 20% of the profit goes towards delivering clean water to underprivileged regions within the world – helping those who need it most with the most basic of necessities.

Complete with the gorgeous design and variety of colours, the Kool 8 is a stainless steel bottle that really does have it all.

2. Hydro Flask

Hydro Flask are no strangers to the water bottle industry and with a huge range of products available, it can be hard to narrow down their selection to a single favourite.

It’s not the wide kid’s selection, beakers, beer or wine coolers that make our list – but the super simple, original 18 oz standard mouth, stainless steel water bottle.

The unique double wall vacuum insulation products temperature for hours and similar to the Kool 8, you’ll see cold drinks kept at the temperature for 24 hours and hot for up to 12. With a proprietary powder coat, you’ll be getting a sweat-free and easy grip product that you can take just about anywhere.

There’s a lifetime warranty as you’d expect on a product of this quality as well as options to pair with a sports cap for simple, one-handed refreshment during exercise or physical activity.

There’s also plenty of choices for colour with 12 to choose from, there’s a design for absolutely everybody!

3. GRAYL

If you’re not scared of spending a pretty penny on a water bottle and have plenty of travelling on your agenda, the GRAYL Ultralight Water Purifier may just be the very best bottle for you.

The bottle boasts a purification system that can remove 99.9999% of viruses within 15 seconds from virtually any source of fresh water in the world. It’s award-winning “one press” design makes clean drinking water effortless, perfect for backpackers, travellers or campers.

The filter works to remove any sediment, particles or silt from your newly harvested water as well as chemicals to rid the liquid of any odour or aftertaste.

The bottle does only come in 4 different colours, so if you’re not a fan of orange, green, black or blue then you’re in bad luck. But for a bottle that purifies and filters your water, you’ll struggle to get anything better, especially under $60.   

4. Klean Kanteen

The Klean Kanteen is one of the simplest stainless steel water bottles available to purchase today – but that is by far a bad thing.

The bottle comes with a classic single wall stainless steel design with a leak resistant sport cap, making it the perfect bottle to take on a run or to the gym. There’s 18 oz and 27 oz options available, depending on how thirsty you are and with 8 different colour choices – you’re spoiled for choice when it boils down to making choices.

All bottles have an electropolished interior, guaranteeing an easy clean finish that doesn’t retain or impart flavours – you can have coffee in the morning and water in the afternoon without it tasting weird.

Ultimately, a super simple design, but an effective bottle with a useful leak resistant sport cap. Highly recommended for the gym or exercise-based use.

5. MIRA

Last, but by no means least, comes MIRA and their stainless steel vacuum insulated water bottle.

Although a relatively simple design, MIRA’s 17 oz and 25 oz water bottles are some of the most popular on the market – and for good reason.

With a “built to last” approach taken by MIRA, you’re encouraged to take your bottle with you on adventures and travels with a reliable product.

Not really the adventure type? Take the sleek bottle with you to school, work or the gym to keep hydrated wherever you may be.

There are a whopping 23 different colour choices with everything from a nice and simple “solid black” to a little more out-there “two-tone blue lava”. If alternative designs are really your thing – be sure to check out the rest of the products from MIRA for more of the (very different) same!
