The Best Reusable Glass Water Bottles Period.

I scoured yoga studios, CrossFit boxes, spin classes, my friends’ cupboards, and the interwebs for the best glass water bottles. Here are the top three Littervention-approved glass water bottles.

LifeFactory 22oz Flip Cap ($20-$25)

Life Factory Flip Cap Glass Water BottleBest for Sport.

The LifeFactory 22oz Flip Cap bottle is the perfect size for all day hydration and especially great during a sweat-intensive workout. Unlike most screw top glass water bottles, the LifeFactory flip cap opens and closes quickly and easily. The stopper tucks neatly under the bottle’s handle so it doesn’t smack you in the face while you’re drinking, and the mouth spout is nice and narrow, allowing you to chug water without spilling it all over yourself. (You sound clumsy.)

The only downside of this bottle is that the lid is most definitely not backpack safe. If you travel with your glass water bottle, consider purchasing a classic cap for transport so it doesn’t leak out over all the stuff in your bag.

The LifeFactory Flip Cap bottle also comes in 16oz and 12oz sizes.

  • Dishwasher safe
  • Widemouth access for ice or fruit infusions
  • Grab and go handle
  • BPA-free, BPS-free and phthalate-free

The 500ml bkr ($30-$42)bkr Glass Water Bottle

Best looks. Best for Transport.

These bkr bottles are all the rage these days, and for good reason! They come in a variety of rotating, fashionable colors and every bottle is a limited edition. The bottle’s design is as simple as it gets—wide glass body, soft silicone sleeve, beer bottle mouth spout, and a simple handle for one finger transportation. The bkr bottle has been featured in dozens of fashion magazines and is most definitely the bottle de jour.

This bottle does, however, have a couple of dysfunctional downsides, like anything fashionable. First, the screw top is not the most efficient way to access water mid-vinyasa. (It’s sort of hard to get the cap lined up right, but maybe I just have terrible hand-eye coordination.) Second, the tiny mouth hole is great for spill-free drinking but not so great for adding ice or cleaning. Hilariously, bkr does sell mini bottle brushes and mini ice cube trays.

The bkr bottle also comes in the 1L size.

  • Dishwasher safe
  • Leakproof design
  • Grab and go handle
  • BPA-free, BPS-free, and phthalate-free

Glasstic Glass Water BottleGlasstic Shatterproof Water Bottle ($20)

Best for Kids and People Who Drop Things.

Glasstic water bottles are just what you’d think they are—a glass/plastic hybrid. Glass on the inside (where it counts) and plastic on the outside, these bottles are (nearly) shatterproof and idiot proof. They break a lot less easily than silicon-covered glass water bottles, and if they do break, the glass shards remain contained in the plastic shell. The flip cap design has a secure locking mechanism (unlike the LifeFactory bottle), making this bottle backpack safe.

On the downside, the cap is not the fanciest. The plastic feels like it might snap if opened with a little too much umph or vigor, but since the top is recyclable and since you can buy replacement caps separately, we say don’t worry about that.

  • Dishwasher safe
  • 100% recyclable
  • BPA-free

Honorable Mentions

This glass water bottle is like a hybrid between the LifeFactory Flip Cap’s bottle and the Glasstic flip cap’s top. This is your standard glass bottle with a nice, colorful silicone sleeve and a locking (but somewhat cheaper looking) plastic top.

Tall and lanky, this glass water bottle is as gorgeous and girly as they come. It’s maybe a bit too tall for the desk or easy transport, but it sure does look nice.

Voss 27oz No Frills Bottle + Artesian Water ($9)Voss Glass Water Bottle

If you’re not planning to drop your bottle and don’t need anything fancy, just get Voss! The Norwegian artesian water comes packaged in a gorgeous glass water bottle you can use again and again. There’s no carrying handle, no silicone protection sleeve, no flip cap, no fluff, but it’s also only $9, including the Norwegian water. Hydrate like a Viking!
