Most of us need to drink more water every day to help us
look and feel our best. The easiest way to make that happen is to carry water,
and the easiest way to do that is by having a water bottle we really love. The
water bottle market has exploded in recent years and now we have almost too
many choices. To help you narrow down your choices, here are 7 of the best
water bottles to help you reach your hydration goals.

Glass water bottles are considered some of the best

Stainless steel water bottles are another good choice to
help you hydrate. Like glass, they don’t leach chemicals into the water. They
come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, so it is easy to choose a bottle
that fits into a cupholder or into a backpack pouch as well as find one large
enough so that you’re not constantly having to refill. Make sure to choose a
bottle that is not lined with BPA-containing plastic. Hydro Flask makes
excellent stainless-steel bottles with a variety of different lids to satisfy
your drinking preferences.

Insulated bottles and tumblers can preserve your
liquid’s temperature for much longer. Check out the selections from Yeti to

you and help you track your progress, they exist. The Yeti Rambler comes in
half-gallon and gallon sizes. If you need extra motivation, look at Fidus’ 64

yourself. Drinking plain water can be a little boring, so to give your water a
