One of the coolest water bottles we’ve seen so far and one that we’re pretty sure will be a big hit this coming 2017 is the EZ Freeze complete with handle straw and ice pack. Just imagine a marvelously designed translucent drinking vessel with a built-in ice pack to keep your drinks ice cold throughout the day. Just pop out the lid, pull out its ice pack cylinder, and put it inside your freezer. Once it’s turned to ice, just put it back in and fill it up with your favorite drink. Take it anywhere with you. Be it to the beach, to the park, or even on those mountain trails that you’re going to trek on, your thirst will surely be quenched by the EZ Freeze.

With a rather unusual yet very elegant shape, the KOR ONE 750 mL Water Bottle is one very sexy and futuristic container for any of your favorite beverage. While it’s true that it is made of plastic, you can bet that it’s made of only the highest quality of Eastman Tritan co-polyester that has become the standard of such products. The ergonomic elliptical shape allows for excellent grip while giving an aesthetic beauty that is reminiscent of blown glass. The hygienic cap easily swivels open with just a single press of a button so you get instant access to your beverage.

8Swig Savvy 25 Oz Glass Water Bottle by Swig Savvy
Want something extraordinary? Technically, the Swig Savvy 25 Oz Glass Water Bottle looks nothing very extraordinary until you slip on its surprisingly sexy protective silicone sleeve, that is. The silicone sleeve is designed to provide a very stylish appeal to the Swig Savvy. However, the sleeve has an entirely different purpose: to protect the glass body of the Swig Savvy from bumps, drops, tumbles, and even breaks. The padded base of the silicone sleeve also helps protect it against drops or even tumbles. If this is not enough, the glass itself is made of borosilicate which has been especially designed to be break-resistant. In other words, the Swig Savvy is one extraordinarily tough glass bottle that you can take with you in your hiking trips as well as other outdoor adventures. You are guaranteed fresh and instant drink every time. The wide mouth makes drinking a lot easier while the integrated carry loop cap enables you to attach it to any type of carrying mechanism.

If you like the Swig Savvy but would like to get plenty of other choices especially in the color of its silicone sleeve, then may we suggest the purifyou Premium Glass Water Bottle with Silicone Sleeve and Stainless Steel Lid Insert. The purifyou is made of the same borosilicate glass that makes the Swig Savvy truly resistant to breaking as well as high grade protective silicone sleeve to help extend its sturdiness and durability. What makes the purifyou quite different is that the sleeve comes in a screen-like pattern with large square sections providing a glimpse of the borosilicate glass and the beverage you have inside. Additionally, the purifyou silicone sleeve comes in a variety of colors. The whole drinking set also comes in a variety of sizes so you’ll have more amazing choices.
What We Like about It – Just like the swig Savvy, we love the strength and durability of the purifyou afforded by its combination of break-resistant glass and superb silicone protection.
10HYDAWAY Collapsible Pocket-sized Travel Water Bottle by HYDAWAY
If you love Nomader because of its flexibility and collapsibility but wished it were smaller, then get the HYDAWAY Collapsible Pocket-sized Travel Water Bottle. The HYDAWAY reminds us of the small and thin metal wine canisters of military officers: small, compact, and truly watertight. The same can be said of the HYDAWAY. It’s so small when in the collapsed position it measures a mere 1 ¼ inches thick. This gives it superb storage even in your pocket. Don’t worry, the HYDAWAY can give you 21 ounces in its food-grade silicone body.
What We Like about It – The miniature size of the HYDAWAY is amazing. It doesn’t look like it’s able to hold 21 ounces but it does.
11HDYRA SmartBottle by Open-2, LLC

This is no ordinary water bottle as it’s built with a 5-watt Bluetooth speaker, a 4000 mAh capacity power bank, and an emergency LED light.

To keep your little children stay hydrated, you’d better give them the Grip-N-Gulp Water Bottle designed specifically for them by renowned bottle maker Nalgene. The Grip-N-Gulp has side indents making it easy to hold by young kids. The fully rubberized lid as well as the smooth mouthpiece, albeit made of plastic, is both kid-safe and very comfortable to drink on.

The stainless steel lid is also adorned with a strap that allows you to hold or carry it conveniently in your hands. It’s completely dishwasher-safe, hence, cleaning should pose no issue at all.
What We Like about It – The Kanrel is one simple yet very elegant looking piece of drinking container. The addition of a silicone sleeve helps extend the protection afforded by its break-resistant glass.
How We Chose the Drinking Canisters in Our List
Picking a truly cool water bottle required us to look at three things: leak-proofing, overall functionality, and soundness of its design integrity. For the first parameter, this is very important as we would like to have access to our precious drink whenever we want. If the canister does a poor job of preventing leaks, this simply means we don’t get to enjoy our drink when we want to. Furthermore, it’s simply a mess if a canister is leaking.
Secondly, the overall functionality of the drinking canisters must be very evident for their benefits. Different products come with different features. As such, we had to examine each one and try to determine whether the feature can really provide a particular benefit. Third, we looked at the overall design. We know that most of us would prefer something that has a simple yet elegant design; not too bold, not too tame either. While this particular parameter is more related to our personal preferences, we do believe that you’d be more enticed to drink from your canister if you like its styling.
In addition to these parameters, we also took note of the construction of the product. It is imperative that it be free from BPA, phthalates, and other harmful chemicals that might leech into our drinks. This is, of course, the last thing we would ever want. As such, we purposely did not include those with questionable composition of materials used in its manufacture.
Why You Should Ditch the Bottled Water
For many years, we have been led to believe that bottled water is the safest way to stay hydrated. Aggressive marketing has drummed up the message that drinking from the tap can bring disease and that the only way to prevent this is by consuming bottled drinks.
Unfortunately, science has refuted these claims further saying that bottled water is no different from tap water. In fact, the liquid put into these bottles come from the very same source as we get our water at home. The only difference is that these have been packaged and labeled into such bottles and then marketed to be the safest liquids to drink. Compare this to the one that comes out of our tap and there are clearly no monetary gains involved: no packaging, no marketing.
Here’s why you need to ditch bottled waters. It has been found that many of these products contain a variety of chemical contaminants such as byproducts of the disinfection process, residues of fertilizers, and even traces of pain medication. These are actually worse than the liquid from our garden hose. Sadly, because of the gullibility of today’s consumers, we are made to believe that bottled water is the safest form to drink.
But, there’s another effect of using these products. Plastic is known to be made of some harmful chemicals. Additionally, it is non-biodegradable. Efforts to recycle it often require the use of tremendous amounts of energy. All of these lead to environmental issues such as pollution and global warming. Not only are we endangering our health, we are also clearly endangering Mother Earth by drinking from these heavily-advertised bottled water.
The Bottom Line
Make a stand. Say no to bottled water and start drinking from the water that comes right out of your tap. This is not any less safe than the much hyped bottled versions. It’s more economical, too. Just consider any of the 15 seriously cool water bottles we have just shared with you and you’d be leading a much healthier way of life while also contributing to the good of the environment.
