For The Runners

Amphipod’s Hydraform Handheld Pocket gives runners the comfort edge with an ergonomic grip and snack storage. This bottle’s 40 percent lower profile allows your hand to relax while you hold it. It’s constructed from polyethylene and the zippered pouch provides enough room for PowerBars, house keys or ID.

Hydraform | $17.95 – $23.95 | available at amphipod.com


For The Fashionable

Award-winning designer Karim Rashid really had something when he developed the bobble because it landed him a 2011 Edison Award for best new product. Aimed at eliminating landfill waste and petroleum usage from bottled water, bobble water bottles are made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate and are 100 percent recyclable. The carbon-based filter removes organic contaminates and can be used up to 300 times before replacement.

Bobble |$12 – $15 | available at American Apparel


For The Eco-Conscious

Water bottles are great for holding water, but become next to useless once they’re empty. That’s where the Platypus SoftBottle comes in handy. These durable, collapsible liquid pouches fold small enough to fit in your pocket, making them perfect for traveling, concerts, and hiking. With a Clean-Taste Guarantee, Platypus ensures you won’t be left with the plastic aftertaste of your bladders from the past. Platypus also caters to your individual drinking style with closure caps, bite valves, and sporty push-pull lids so you can get your water as fast as you need it.

Platypus | $7.95 – $12.95 | available at reuseit.com
