Water Bottles

For school, the best options are either stainless steel or bpa free plastic. Our best budget buy is the 360 Degrees bottles. They’re lightweight and we put them through some pretty savage drop testing to make sure they don’t split open and crack as soon as they get a few dents in them. They passed with flying colours.

Here’s our top 6 picks for drink bottles for Back To School.

  1. 360 Degrees Single Wall Stainless Steel – budget friendly and stood up to a real beating in our road tests. Repeatedly dropped FULL on to concrete, they may have had a few dents, but they didn’t leak. Your kids won’t be so rough with them.
  2. 360 Degrees Insulated Stainless Steel – keeps drinks cool all day and there’s no plastic inside the lid either, it’s all stainless steel.
  3. Camelbak Eddy Kids – perfect for little ones as they’re spillproof and the bite valve feeds from under the lid so it’s not a choking hazard. Larger sizes available in plain colours up to 1 litre.
  4. Beautiful Beaches Insulated Stainless Steel – insulated bottles with or without protective neoprene pouches. Keeps drink cold all day
  5. Klean Kanteen – premium single wall bottles, the first brand in the world and still going strong.
  6. Avanti – fashion savvy insulated stainless steel. 500ml to 1.5 litre capacity. 40 to 50% off most styles.
