Full disclosure: I bring reusable straws with me everywhere I go and I try to use cloth instead of paper napkins. But, I have not found a reusable water bottle that I love. Let me break my issues down for you. I don't want something too heavy, since I'm always on the go, and when I fill up my water bottles, sometimes it feels like carrying around a brick. I also want something that's easy to clean, because if it's not easy, I probably won't do it. Lastly, I would like the water in the bottle to stay cold, but I don't want the metal taste that comes with so many aluminum bottles. It's a tall order, or so I thought, until I found this Corkcicle Canteen ($33).
This bottle meets every requirement I have, which I didn't think was possible. The sleek design isn't so heavy that I can't lug it around, the mouth is big enough to make cleaning super simple, and my water stays cold for up to 25 hours! Which means, I can go to bed with cold water by my bed, and when I wake up the next morning, it's still cold. It's the little things, guys.
The bottle is aluminum, but is the only bottle I've ever tried that doesn't have the gross metal taste. In short, I've already bought one to keep at my desk, and I'll be stocking up on a couple more. If you need a new water bottle, make it this one.
