This year, along with regular summer activities like hitting the beach or hitting the tennis courts, you’ll find us in the stands cheering on the athletes at the 2017 Canada Summer Games – and all of that outdoor time calls for some major attention to hydration. Browse through our round-up of water bottles that will help you stay hydrated, protected – and stylish, obviously.
If you want something functional and fashionable, you can’t go wrong with a stainless steel water bottle. Not only do they look trendy, they’re good for the environment with less plastic going into the landfill. The popular S’well version will keep your water cold for up to 24 hours, a perk that comes in handy during a big adventure. If you’re as patriotic as we are, we also found a red thermos-style bottle that celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday.
For those of you who love playing sports or going hiking in the summer, we recommend a classic, durable water bottle – something sturdy that you won’t be afraid of dropping or accidentally leaking in your bag. Bottles with a loop around the lid are even easier to carry, which is perfect for all you runners and bikers on the go.
More of a smoothie or iced coffee kinda gal? You need a cold cup in your life. There are plenty of stylish options out there that you can show off at school or work, and we were drawn to colourful patterns and simple designs. A glass iced tea bottle From DavidsTea is so thoughtfully designed – it has a leakproof stopper and a stainless steel bottom that unscrews so you can add ice. We’ll drink to that!
Ready to hydrate? Be sure to tag us on Instagram to show off your water bottle of choice and where you’re carrying it this summer!
