IS THE STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLE I RECOMMEND.
Key Points to Look For
- BPA Free
- Single or Double Walled
- Sweat-Resistant Technology
- Vacuum Sealed stays cool to touch
- Water Capacity
- 18/8 Food Grade
Stainless steel water bottles are BPA-free. BPA stands for Bisphenol-A it’s used in the manufacture of plastic products and can disrupt the natural function of your hormones.
A quick way to check is to look inside the bottle to see if there is any kind of plastic lining. BPA-free bottles are also recyclable for those of you who are environmentally friendly.
Single or Double Walled
Single-Walled bottles are made of one layer of stainless steel. This allows you to actually use the bottle to boil water for those who, like myself love the great outdoors. These bottles tend to be cheaper but are also less durable and more prone to dents when dropped.
Double-Walled bottles are exactly how they sound. They are made of two layers of stainless steel. Helping it to preserve the temperature of your liquid whether it is cold, or hot.
Vacuum-Sealed bottles prevent the outside of the bottle from becoming too hot to hold. These bottles also do an excellent job of maintaining cold temperature of its contents, some even 24 hours later and for hot contents such as coffee or tea, can last up to 12 hours.
This Technology stops the outside of the bottle from having a wet layer so there will be a dry surface each time you grab your bottle for a refreshing sip.
Leak-Resistant can be VERY important if the new bottle is going in your book-bag with another irreplaceable item such as laptops, phones, and any other electronic devices.
There are several types of lids some spring or pop up. While they can be faster to get into, the most durable caps will be the stainless steel ones that screw in.
You shouldn’t need anything bigger than a 27oz. Plus having a bottle that fits into most cup holder is just better when it comes to “Where did I just put my water bottle??”
Anyway, somewhere in the 20-27oz range will keep you hydrated for hours as well as maintain a weight that is reasonable to carry around all day.
18/8 Food Grade
This means the stainless steel they use is the same grade of steel that they use in restaurants and cooking appliances. Pretty much all bottles for sale will be FDA approved but it’s something to keep in mind.
Other Tips to Think About
- Lid big enough for ice cubes
- Carabiners for better storage
- Odor- Free (Just wash before use)
- Stainless Steel is rust-resistant
Glacier Point is the stainless steel bottle that I recommend. They have come the closest to meeting the standards I have been talking about.
Not only does it meet the necessary requirements for safety and style.
The price is great for the value and to top it off it comes with a Lifetime Warranty!
(I posted this article 2 days ago and they now are having some sort of fall sale. Price was $19.99 should be $12.99 now (Oct. 5, 2018) Really great value for the price)
