If you prefer using glass for your drinking water, check out the new Eddy Glass bottle (left) from CamelBak. The Eddy Glass is BPA-free, and it has a silicone sleeve (in purple, charcoal, aqua, or lime) for improved grip and to protect against breakage. You don’t have to tip up this bottle to drink; it has a built-in straw system so you can just sip from it. The Eddy Glass holds 0.75L and costs $25.00.
If you are traveling or hiking and can’t completely trust your water source, you may prefer the All Clear Microbiological Water Purifier bottle (right). It uses UV-technology to purify water from streams or spigots in 60 seconds; you just fill the bottle, turn on the UV purifier, and agitate the water for 60 seconds. The UV module is USB-chargeable, and you can treat 80 cycles (about 16 gallons) between charges. The All Clear bottle is available only in the US, and it costs $99.00.
