Stainless Steel Water Bottles Review

After all the issues about the quality of plastic used in water bottles I switched to using a stainless steel bottle about three years ago.

NEW UPDATE! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
I have reviewed this review and added FIVE new brands so now there is a Total of TWELVE brands reviewed. I even changed the layout to be easier to follow and compare. For the UPDATED New Stainless Steel Water Bottle Review follow this link now.

Also, I have by request I have just completed a review exclusively focused on children’s stainless steel water bottles. You will find the review on children’s stainless steel water bottles here.

NOTE: As a personal coach who believes strongly in the positive impact of drinking water on mental and physical fitness I am often asked what is a good stainless steel bottle to buy. So I decided to write a review on the bottles I know of including some I have used.  I have made comparison using particular features that I believe will be of importance to you.

For my time to research and write this article (it took me several days to compile the info) if you buy via a link on this posting I receive a small fee from Amazon but you do NOT pay anymore that if you went directly to Amazon to buy a water bottle.

This review is only on stainless steel water bottles. Each of the following companies makes at least one model of water bottle with stainless steel. Depending on the company they may also made bottles from plastic and aluminum. For pricing examples and additional information please click on the BLUE links located in this article or at the end of it.  Remember if you leave this article to check up to date pricing on a bottle and you want to read of this article just simply click on your back browers button to return to here.
