Sports Water Bottles in The Uk: 10 Most Durable Bottles in 2019Sports Water Bottle UK

The reason for drinking plenty of water if you are playing rugby or football is pretty self-explanatory

But if you are not sure why then Read This Article which will explain the effects of hydration in sports performance

Then come right back to see the Best Sports Water Bottles to Buy in The UK

And why you should invest in one rather than drinking out of a normal plastic bottle

You might not want to pay for a water bottle when you can just buy a plastic bottle full of water from the shops and then reuse that

If you are anything like me however you will have a house full of empty plastic bottles as I keep forgetting to take the old water bottle with me to exercise

Since buying a proper sports water bottle though, not once have I left it behind which has saved me a lot of money in the long run

So why wouldn’t you buy one for yourself?

Here are some quick links to the reviews of the bottles or to go straight to buy them

Choosing The Right Water Bottle For You

3 glass water bottles with 1 pouring water into a glass cup
Yes, you can get some cheap ones but you are only going to get what you pay for, to be honest

They can range from a couple of pounds up to around £50 or £60

And I know what you are thinking, 

Why would I want to pay all that money just to carry some water around with me? 

Well I wouldn’t personally pay that much

But if you do a bit of shopping around then you will get a really good reusable water bottle for about 10 or 15 quid

Which you won’t regret if you are going to be taking it to all your training sessions and games

You know for a fact that it’s going to be strong enough to last quite a while

So How Much Should You Spend?

Just by spending a bit more than you normally do on a sports water bottle then you could be getting some very useful little features, such as,

  • Insulation inside the bottle
  • Leak-proof lids and caps
  • You can even get some with water filters built in them so that you can purify your tap water even more… DRINKING WATER JUST GOT BETTER!plastic water bottle tipping out water

Now the main worry we all have with a water bottle, is it going to break in or bag on the way to training or a game?

The last thing you want is to get where your going and find out that you have no water left and all the things in your bag are soaking

At the end of the day, It all depends on what you are going to use the bottle for, and of course, your budget

If it is going to be your main source of fluid intake every day though you might want to spend a little bit more so you can keep your water cooler for longer

Especially in the summer when you need that fluid intake the most

The Science Behind It All

You probably won’t even notice this but if you have a water bottle with you at all times you will tend to drink much more H2O, and that can only be a good thing, Right?

Scientists have said that drinking from a plastic bottle rather than a reusable one can harm the environment

I don’t think that drinking from them is going to do much damage now and again but I suppose the less we drink from them the better things could be

Another thing the brainiacs have said is that there is a chemical in some plastics that could be harmful to our bodies

So if you think that your body is a temple then why on earth would you do that to yourselves?

WATCH THIS SHORT VIDEO WHY YOU SHOULDN’T USE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES ALL THE TIME

 

So what do you think about buying a reusable sports water bottle and refilling it with your tap water rather than buying a new plastic bottle full every day?

Whatever sport you are training for it is important that you keep hydrated at all times so it is handy that you have a water bottle by your side at all times

The Benefits of Drinking Water During Sports

Lack of water during sports can lead to muscle damage, cramps and of course fatigue

Dehydration can be a problem as it causes a decrease in mental and physical performance, dizziness and lack of concentration

So it is imperative that you keep your body fluids topped up to maintain the best that your body can be

Read this brilliant article that is on the humankinetics.com website which was written by Cathleen Murakami if you want a more in-depth knowledge of the benefits of drinking water during sports

It really is a great read and you should go and check it out.

Below are 10 best sports bottles which I have personally tested out myself and the reviews are just my opinions#

  • SAFE – It has a  double wall vacuum insulation so there is no plastic involved in this water bottle.
  • DURABLE – As it is stainless steel it is quite durable but I can see that if it is dropped more than a few times you might dent the bottle or break the leak-proof seal around the cap. Out of a possible 10 for durability, I would give this bottle 7/10

What You Might Not Like About This Bottle

Good post. I read lots of bad things about drinking water from plastic bottles. What is your view on that?

Reply

I don’t ever drink out of shop bought plastic bottles I always have a proper sports water bottle, I have a friend who works with a local water distribution company and he said the bottles of water that go out to the shop’s are stored in the basement of the factory and its full of rats so God knows how much rats pee is over them.
Not for me I’m afraid

Reply

This is a good post for lower level water bottles. There are much better water bottles on the market.
I always say you get what you pay for. I prefer the bottles that keep the water or whatever drink, cold for 24 – 72 hours.

Reply

There are at least 5 of these bottles that will keep drinks hot or cold for a long period of time if you didn’t notice when you read the post.

Reply

Lots of great options presented here. thanks! I personally love my vacuum insulated bottle the best…keeps the water so cold. DYLN looks incredible!

Reply

I love the DYLN water bottle it really is the ultimate water bottle that I would highly recommend to anybody that wants a top class bottle to drink from

Reply

I agree about the effect of drinking water out of plastic water bottles from the store. I try to always drink filtered water from my BPA free waterbottles, much like what you show above. But I have to say I LOVE that Dumbbell Water Bottle! That is going to make a great gift to a couple of my buds for their birthdays, they’ll love it!

Reply

The dumbbell water bottle really is a great gift idea but the more you drink from it the lighter it gets, so if you want to keep it heavy then you might have to buy one of the other great bottles I have on this list.

Hi, this is such a great and useful article about choosing right sports water bottle. To be honest I use one of these bottles in my everyday use, so that I can manage to drink the requires amount of water that we mums usually neglect while running after kids. What I am currently using is Anavika sports and from my personal experience this is a great and leak proof water bottle.

Reply

Ah, the Anavik is a great water bottle which sometimes gets underrated in my opinion just because it doesn’t look as flash as all the others. It still has pretty much all the same features as the shiny stainless steel ones.

OMG that dumbell shaped bottle is a riot. I could see that being a great gag gift for so many men in my life. I like the Toplus design the best…and you make a compelling argument for finally weaning from the disposable plastic bottles once and for all.

Reply

Yes the dumbell shaped water bottle is both money saving and a great way to work out killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Thanks for your comment and drop by anytime 🙂

Awesome information!
I always carry my water bottle around so i don’t have to buy bottle after bottle, i believe the less waste one can make the better, plus now a day if you buy a bottle everyday it adds up.
For the bottles you have listed i have personally tried the Camel Bak Eddy which is very practical and my favorite, i even bought a second one for my son. The other one I have is the Nalgene Tritan, I take this big jug when i go hiking, it’s perfect when you know you are going to be out for more than a few hours without access to water.
Thank you for sharing very useful information! Its the first time i see some of this bottles, i really need to check them out.

Reply

Totally agree with you about buying plastic bottles of water every day, they soon mount up when you could be using the same water bottle that is reusable. I will always buy one of these now and it will save me time and money in the long run.

Great post! You’re definitely right when you say that you’ll actually end up drinking a lot more water if you take a bottle with you.

I recently bought one called Sho Water Bottles and it’s similar to the Toplus Vacuum Bottle in your review. Have you tried Sho and, if so, would you recommend it?

I have just taken a look at the Sho Water Bottle and it looks pretty good I must admit. I will look more into detail on this bottle and give you my opinion.

I hadn’t really taken the time to educate myself on the importance of BPA-free or why you shouldn’t use plastic water bottles all of the time. I am thankful that you wrote this article since I now have a better understanding. 

My family and I are out on the road full-time RVing and a lot of times that means getting out in nature and checking out the surrounding. I am going to look over the list of water bottles again and see which kinds are best for what we need.

Have an amazing day!

All these are great choices and some of them I have tried myself in the past. But have you ever heard of the company called Green’s Your Colour? I’m currently using their water bottles and they’re AMAZING! They keep the water COLD and hot beverages HOT for long periods of time. They’re triple insulated, that’s why…

Love them!

Drinking water from a bottle is not just for the fun of it.  Those that know knows that having a water bottle with you during sports session,  walk out,  at the gym is so important because it is a lifesaver.  Looking at the plastic bottle we often buy and use over and over,  there is more damage to our health that we think.  The reason is that the materials from which the plastic bottles are made of are leached into the water inside them and then we take the water…… too bad. 

If one has a water bottle,  no matter how much you spend to buy it,  it’s worth it anyway because you will protect your health,  you will save yourself the job of disposing of plastic bottles.  

Water is life,  get your reusable water bottle.

I like the Dumbbell! It is great to see how much you the stress about not using a water bottle, plastic is so much problem today.I use of course the water bottles in the gym but too when I run. Embrava looks excellent for running because of the strap. Are you agree?

Thanks for the great information.

Hey there,

I need one water bottle, not only for exercise but for hiking as well. So, your post comes really very handy! I like the Filtered Alcaline Water Bottle because the filter can be cleaned and not changed every, let’s say, 2 months. 

I also like the dumbbell, for its originality (great idea) and the Camelbak for the straw – although it reminds me of how toddlers drink water 🙂

Thanks for a great post! Will share it!

I always have water with me in the summertime. We are in the US Arizona where the temps can get over a 100 degrees for days on end in the summer. Reusable water bottles are great especially the insulated ones that keep cold water cold for extended amounts of time. I love the variety of colors on the Aorin Water Bottle you described. As I am in the US would that also ship to the US or do you know where in the states I might get one?
