Remember when drinking water on-the-go meant taking a sip from a water fountain? Me neither. We've been carrying water bottles for years now and (finally) traded in the disposable plastic bottles for reusable vessels. But Gen Z has catapulted the personal water bottle into an obsession — they're now calling them ‘emotional support’ water bottles — a label previous generations reserved for pets. But most of us make hydration a priority and can agree water bottles are constant companions, just like Fido.
Right now, we’re taking a page from the Gen Z book, er, app and adding the popular Thermoflask Insulated Water Bottle to our shopping carts: This TikTok-famous water bottle is on sale for $20 (was $24) at Amazon.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
Often compared to Hydroflask, this stainless steel water bottle does the same job for about half the price. It’s designed to keep your water the temperature you need it to be. That means if you have ice-cold water, it will stay ice-cold for a full day and it will keep your hot beverage hot for twelve hours. That’s all thanks to the double-wall vacuum insulation — and TikToker Joyssiithewanderer shows us exactly how impressive it is. If that doesn’t wow you, there are more than 33,000 five-star reviews that will.
“I wanted a big bottle to hold cold water during the summer, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money,” noted one satisfied sipper. “I got this bottle and gave it the trial by fire. Out in the sun at 90 degrees for over 5 hours, my water was STILL COLD! The odd thing was that the ice melted sometime during the first hour but the water stayed just as cold as if the ice was still in it. I also dropped this thing on cement, and other than a few scratches it’s fine. Great buy!”
One customer called it a life-saver: “I recently suffered a foot infection and was not allowed to bear weight on that foot. All of my old water bottles had sprung a leak. Being confined to a scooter left me vulnerable to spills. This water bottle seals, cools, and warms well, so it is ideal for me to carry beverages from one room to another.”
One of the best features is that it comes with two different lids — one is for gulping and the other has a straw to let you choose how you sip, depending on your adventures. The bottle fits in your car cup holder but what’s even better: it’s leak proof so you can throw it in a bag without worrying about spills.
“I originally purchased these in the 16oz for my granddaughters to use at our house, to have a couple leakproof, heavy duty, drop proof containers for their drinks both inside and out,” wrote one happy grandparent. “These are great for the kids, but then I started using one for myself at night to have a water bottle on my bedside. The straw option is great when lying down and the short ones are light enough to maneuver without spilling. Plus these don’t make that slurping sound, like the pull top sports bottles, so they are also great for traveling on planes, trains and automobiles. ; )”
“Love this water bottle!!” another content customer. “It keeps my water cold for HOURS! I’ve had no issues with leaking and I love that it comes with multiple lid types. The 24oz fits in my side pocket on my backpack and in my car cup holder. It’s perfect.”
