A simple snap sends the straw back down where it’s protected from dust, germs and other elements you definitely don’t want in your water.

The price is right too, as you can score the 24-ounce model at a bargain-level price. It’s BPA-free, dishwasher-safe (top rack only), and it basically checks all of the boxes for what you want in a good water bottle. Customers love that they can open this water bottle with just one hand and say it’s durable and great for all occasions.

Best Stainless Steel Water Bottle: Hydro Flask Sports Water Bottle

When you want the durability and safety of stainless steel, thousands of fans say this water bottle from Hydro Flask is the way to go. It holds hot or cold liquids and will keep them them at the desired temperature for hours. Seriously, hours: up to six hours for hot drinks and up to 24 hours for cold drinks.

It comes in two sizes—32 and 40 ounces—and in a variety of colors. The bottle is made of food-grade stainless steel, and the cap and straw are made from BPA-free plastic.

You will have to hand wash it (no dishwasher), but it comes with a lifetime warranty, so you know it’s built to last.

Customers say the bottle is sturdy and leak-proof and does an incredible job at keeping liquids hot or cold. There are many reports of customers finding ice still frozen in them after 24 hours and beyond.

Best Glass Water Bottle: EcoVessel Surf Glass Water Bottle

When you want the purity of glass but the durability of plastic, there's this water bottle from EcoVessel. The 22-ounce Surf bottle is made of 60 percent recycled glass, but you don’t have to worry about it shattering because it’s surrounded by a silicone sleeve and has a padded base. You can drop it from as high as 8 feet without so much as a crack.

Best for Kids: OXO Tot Twist Lid Water Bottle for Big Kids (12 Oz) - Aqua

For durability and ease of use, parents say this OXO Tot Twist Lid Bottle is among the best. To pop the straw, you simply twist the lid. When you don’t need it, you twist it back where it’s protected from dirt, germs and other things you don’t want in your kid’s water.

Another contender from Contigo is their Ashland infuser bottle. The 26-ounce bottle holds not only water (or your beverage of choice), but it also has a built-in infusion strainer you can fill with fruit and herbs to add fantastic flavor to your water. If plain water just doesn’t do it for you, this is a great way to hydrate with great taste, minus the sugar and artificial sweeteners of sodas and juices. You can also use it without the strainer for those times you want straight-up, simple water.

The straw flips up with the simple touch of a button and pops back down when you don’t need it. The handle can be attached to a bag, and it comes with a lock button to prevent spills when you’re on the go. Customers say the bottle is sturdy, easy to clean, and, unlike a lot of diffuser bottles, this one doesn’t leak at all.

Best Budget: BOTTLED JOY Sports Water Bottle

In some families, water bottles seem to do a constant disappearing act. If you find yourself replacing yours more than you’d like, you probably don’t want to shell out a ton of cash for one, which is why this one from Bottled Joy is so great. Depending on the color you choose, one will run you between $5 and $7. They’re made of BPA-free materials, so they’re safe. Each bottle can hold 28 ounces of water.

The straw has a small edge on it to pop it up and down as needed, and it has a loop handle that makes it easy to carry. There are no bells and whistles, but for a basic, bargain-priced water bottle this one is up for the job.

Best Sports Water Bottle: Lifefactory 22-Ounce BPA-Free Glass Bottle

Whether you’re hopping on the treadmill or off to find some inner peace in yoga class, Lifefactory glass water bottles are a great choice to take a long. Made of glass, the pure, clean taste of water isn’t tainted, and the silicone sleeves protect them from breaking. It doesn’t hurt that they’re stylish and come in an array of great colors and designs either.

The opening is wide so it’s easy to slip in fruit, herbs and ice cubes to spice things up, and it can be washed in the dishwasher. The handle makes it easy to carry and pivots down for when you don’t need it.

Best Plastic Water Bottle: CamelBak Eddy Water Bottle

For a basic plastic water bottle, Camelbak’s Eddy water is a solid choice. It’s BPA-free and comes in an array of colors and patterns. You can select from 20, 25 and 32-ounce models and it comes in glass versions as well.

A loop on the handle makes it easy to carry and the whole thing is dishwasher safe. While some say it’s a bit difficult to clean, most love the bottle and say if you follow the directions, washing it isn’t a problem.
