What Our Editors Say

"Staying hydrated while being sustainable is a priority, no matter where my day takes me, which is what drew me to this 17-ounce S'well bottle. While the bottle's a bit heavy for leisure day trips, it doubles as a hand weight when hiking or taking recreational walks. I picked a vibrant coral color, "Birds of Paradise," which also increases nighttime visibility during evening walks. I also appreciate the fact that its narrowly-designed mouth minimizes spills, especially when taking sips during a car ride." — Tori Zhou, Associate Health Commerce Editor
