The 10 Best Filtered Water Bottles for Safe Sipping Everywhere You Go
Fill up from the creek, tap, or water fountain worry-free with these purifying picks.
If your summer calendar is already filling up with beach trips, camping excursions, and fresh air hikes, you’ll want to make sure you have the right gear on-hand. We all know hydration is of peak importance — especially when hiking or backpacking in the heat — but sipping on the go can sometimes be a struggle. Between the cost and environmental impact of bottled water and the lack of trustworthy clean water sources, it’s no surprise that more people are shopping for filtered water bottles.
Filtered water bottles remove impurities and contaminants from drinking water, which can include everything from bacteria and chlorine to various heavy metals. This purification process helps to make your drinking water taste better, but it also grants you access to clean and safe drinking water, whether you’re at home or 20 miles from base camp on a trail. After testing several popular picks and researching dozens more, we found the best filtered water bottles for virtually any lifestyle, budget, and activity.
