Which water bottle is the best? Although hydration is one of our basic needs, the answer to the "best water bottle" question is not as simple as it may seem. To find out, we took ten of the most popular bottles on the market and put them through three months of testing!.. From the field, to the office, and in the lab, we asked a lot from these bottles. Read on to see how they performed and which bottle is best for your lifestyle and outdoor adventures.

Our Top Pick for Eco-Health is the glass Lifefactory Classic 22 bottle. It works very well as a lifestyle bottle, while at the same time satisfying the increasing consumer demand for alternatives to plastic. As noted in the review above, glass is widely accepted as being safe from chemical leaching. It fits well into car cup holders, as well as your hands due to the comfortable silicone sleeve. We loved that it provides the portability of a water bottle, yet feels like drinking out of a glass in our kitchen. We were also very impressed when it passed our drop tests. With proper care, this bottle will last a very long time.

People have been drinking from glass containers since 1500 BC. Thankfully, glass bottles have come a long way since the height of the Egyptian Empire. Nowadays, glass bottles are more durable, easier to manage and beautiful to boot. Advances in manufacturing techniques and design, coupled with greater interests in sustainable and ecologically sound products have resulted in a renaissance for the glass bottle.

We scoured the market and found our bottles. Then we put them through the rigors of a daily chaotic life that goes from the urban jungle to the mountain trail, and then back home to the recreation center for the kids nightly swim practice.
