I’m a water bottle girl through and through, so much so that you’ll never catch me without one. Having a bottle of water 24/7 serves as a gentle reminder to hydrate throughout the day, so you’ll find it on my standing desk, nightstand, or counter from the kitchen. HydroFlask has been in my water bottle rotation for two years, but the Owala Freeship Stainless Steel Water Bottle (normally $25) is becoming a close competitor, and for a limited time, it’s 24 percent off at Amazon.
What do I love about the Owala FreeSip Insulated Water Bottle? First of all, it is easy to transport and use thanks to the opening button and the carrying handle, which serves as a bottle lock. Designed with three layers of stainless steel, this bottle holds 32 ounces of liquids and keeps water cold for up to 24 hours (awesome i know). “I love the fact that everything I put in here stays ice cold,” says Han Schneider, well+wellhealth writer. “I wake up in the morning and the bottle is still rattling with the ice it had in there from the night before.” Being made from stainless steel also means the water bottle is bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalate free.
Our two W+G trade editors also have one and swear by it as durable as HyrdoFlask. “I have several HydroFlasks, which I love, but my Owala is still an option, and has lasted as long as my most expensive bottles. It never leaks or malfunctions,” says our senior trade editor, Gina Vaynshteyn.
I also appreciate the mechanics of drinking from the bottle. Unlike other water bottles with bulky external straws, this bottle has one built in, allowing you to sip upright and drink without spills or leaks. It has a larger mouth sprout, so you can tip the bottle back and drink regularly. Plus, the bottle is easy to clean and there are a dozen colors to choose from: Poolside Punch, Neon Basil, Grape and more.
Not convinced? Check out the nearly 1,700 five-star reviews or 15,500 five-star ratings left by Amazon buyers. “The design is a game changer. Tipping a large water bottle while driving or in general is a hassle. Holding this in one hand and being able to drink is awesome,” one customer wrote. Another said: “I left my water bottle in my hot car for three hours one day in an accident. The ice was still there.”
It’s clear how the Owala Freeship Stainless Steel Water Bottle has easily become a favorite among our team and Amazon shoppers. We promise that it will be yours too. Happy sipping!
