I am purchasing 3 of these for adults. Is it worthwhile buying bottles suitable for hot and cold use?

  • It depends what you’re going to use them for (ie what activities). I do think it’s worthwhile investing in good quality for water bottles for adults (who are less likely to lose them than kids).



  • I try to use a clear or see through water bottle – that way i can tell if the kids have had a sneaky mouthful and left a present of floaties!



  • Always label new water bottles as they do have a tendency to go missing!



  • I would be inclined to be wheat packs. Longer lasting and no chance of leakages



  • We buy ones that are friendly to the environment and not made with nasty chemicals.



  • BPA free for cold drinks otherwise those thermal / double walled ones for hot beverages. Or KeepCups which I love for my morning coffees



  • I think the answer to that lies in if you drink warm water and if yes then absolutely get hot/cold use bottles



  • Most important for me is if the bottle is to clean easy and well. Therefor a wide neck is easier for when you want to clean the inside of the bottle so your brush can go in, and the teat/mouth should be easy to clean (preferably easy to take apart) as well.



  • I recently bought one of these water bottles and I LOVE it. It’s a great size and the lid locks on to avoid any accidents. I loved it so much that I asked for a second one for Xmas.

  • I bought from a charity store, some new Tupperware drink bottles. They are a screw lid and square 500 ml bottle. I really love the quality. Maybe for kids a flip lid would be easier, but they were too good to pass up. They go in the dishwasher and the plastic doesn’t corrupt the water taste.



  • I wouldn’t buy a hot one for a child , but great if you like drinking hot soups etc.. outside home .



  • I like my water bottle with a straw in it.. They seem to eveywhere and the best bit when knocked over they do not spill.. But they can only hold water or cold drinks.. I keep my hot drinks in a different container as its usually for a hot coffee.. and eventhough washed inbetween uses.. it might make the water taste funny.



  • Why don’ t you ask them what they’d like? It might depend what they would use them for – if they are using it for sports then they might want a light plastic one that tends to be softer for carrying in a water belt etc. They can always freeze a plastic bottle to let the water melt slowly and be cold if heat is an issue. Perhaps more important is whether they need a hand to ‘open’ or twist the lid, or can drink from it without (perhaps just pulling a stopper with the teeth) so making a bottle more or less suitable for using in certain ways, for example, when driving.



  • If using for hot and cold l would go stainless steel!



  • Hot and cold is handy. Stainless works best. I love our ecococcoon bottles
