People everywhere are wising up to the idea of all-metal water bottles, and quite frankly, it’s about time. They’re super durable and long lasting, they’re easier on the environment, and they usually don’t contain any hazardous chemicals or BPA found in normal water bottles or other plastics. If you’re an avid water drinker (and you should be), a good all-metal water bottle is a solid, solid investment.
S’well bottles are obviously some of our favorites because of their sleek design and incredible build quality, but they’re also a little on the pricy side. Twenty-five bucks for something that’s smaller than a beer can? That’s a tough pill to swallow. There must be some solid alternatives out there, right?
Right you are! Here are 7 Affordable Metal Water Bottles Under $30
We wanted to put one basic water bottle on here for everyone looking for a truly budget-friendly option. The Eco-Friendly Wide Mouth 25 Oz. water bottle is for people who are simply looking to go BPA-free without any of the frills. It’s not insulated, so your drinks won’t stay cold or hot for hours at a time, but this bottle is reliable, shatter-proof, and at $7.99 a bottle, more than exceptionally priced. If you want basic, long-lasting, durable, and affordable without any of the frills, you’ve found your match.$8
The Barista Bottle is a downright beautiful product, with its simple color selections (black, white, and silver) and skinny cylindrical design, but where it really stands out is that it’s not just a water bottle, but an on-the-go fruit-infuser. It comes with all the perks, like a vacuum-insulated double wall design that keeps drinks hot or cold for 24 hours, a screw-on leak-proof lid, and a silicone-textured exterior, but it also comes with a removable tea and fruit infuser that’ll allow you the beautiful options of brewing coffee (both cold and hot brew!), teas, or making simple fruit-infused water. And for 18 bucks, we think you’d be hard-pressed to beat it.$18
The designs of the Cayman Fitness bottles are beautiful and feature a Coke-bottle shape in a polished stainless steel finish. On the inside, you’ll find a double-walled vacuum stainless steel construction made from 18/8 stainless. It’s shatterproof and lightweight, as well as leak- and condensation-proof. Best of all, it’s both BPA- and phthalate-free, which means being able to enjoy your water, coffee, tea, or even soup without the risk of ingesting dangerous chemicals.$19
Another Coke-bottle designed alternative to the S’Well bottle, Thermo Tank’s vacuum insulated bottles feature 100% 18/8 304 BPA-free stainless steel, and thanks to its double-walled and copper-coated inner construction, their bottles will keep your cold drinks ice cold for up to 36 whole hours. There are several different color combinations, and while we’ll be the first to admit they wont win our award for “most beautifully color coordinated bottle of all time,” they certainly get the job done. And for $24.97, you won’t hear a peep from us.$25
Klean Kanteen is one of the most popular all-metal water storage manufacturers out right now, and they’re priced very affordably for the kind of quality they offer. For $25.95, you’re getting a 40 oz. bottle with a durable, lightweight construction. The electropolished stainless steel is durable, sustainable, and completely toxin-free. The nicest little detail is that it comes with a screw-mount top on it, but also features a sports cap design, which make drinking a lot more convenient and carefree than you’re used to from these types of bottles.$26
Corkcicle are the same people who brought us the Whiskey Wedge, so when we saw they’d also gotten into the metal water bottle game, we knew it’d be a product we absolutely loved. Corkcicle’s 16 oz. bottles are beautifully designed with flat edges to help improve grip, but also feature a no-leak threaded screw top, a non-slip bottom, and thanks largely to its industry-leading three-lay insulation, you’ll never deal with condensation or burnt hands. It’ll keep your cold drinks cold for 25 hours, and your hot drinks hot for 12—just as life intended!$28
The Hydro Flask Standard Mouth is just an all-around beautiful product. It features shatterproof 18/8 Pro Grade Stainless Steel, is BPA free, has a condensation-free powder coated finish (in several colors), and comes with a no-nonsense lifetime warranty. The 12 Oz. version comes in at $24.95, but we’d recommend spending the extra five bucks and grabbing the 18 oz. version for$30
