The 8 Best Water Bottles for Hiking
Don’t let your outdoor adventures leave you parched.
Warm-weather hiking season is in full swing, and that means you're probably in the process of re-evaluating and refreshing your gear. Besides obvious staples for your outdoor treks, like sturdy hiking shoes and a good backpack, you will need a reliable hiking water bottle that can carry enough liquid to ensure you don't get dehydrated when you're out on the trail.
Not only is using a reusable bottle more eco-friendly than purchasing single-use bottles of water, but it ends up being more cost effective, too. Depending on your preferences and the type of hiking you're doing, you may need an insulated metal bottle with a large capacity, or you could be looking for a smaller, collapsible plastic model that you can fit in your pocket when it's empty.
With tons of options out there, it can be difficult to choose the right hiking water bottle for you, especially if you don't know exactly what you're looking for from the outset. To help you choose, we've gathered some of our favorite water bottles for every type of hiker.
