Stylish Stainless Steel Water Bottles

stainless steel water bottles by earthlust

As a pursuit to reduce my consumption of plastic water bottles, I am looking for a reusable water bottle that would look great while I walk in the city. I wish for a funky or cool modern print. The SIGG bottles have a trendy look but they are made of aluminum which means that they can corrode. I trust more the food grade stainless steel bottles.

Earthlust

First let’s look at Earthlust. This small brand started by a mother from San Francisco has a cute line. I would like if the drawing theme extends beyond nature. I like the cute poppies and the silver Crow. Earthlust bottles use non-toxic paints and BPA-free safe polypropelene caps.

Klean Kanteen

For a minimalist look, look at Klean Kanteen. They started selling stainless steel reusable water bottles in 2004. Their line is quite extensive with all kinds of caps to fit your lifestyle and preferences. Plus, more of their range is dishwasher safe.

They launched not long ago an extra-wide mouth bottle which is more practical if you like to put ice cubes or fresh berries into your drink. The wide-mouth is only available in brushed metal finish. It has a lightly shorter profile, more compact and lighter than the Classic model.

The sleek stainless steel Classic bottles also come in 6 colors: green moss, orange sunset, ocean blue, black eclipse, pink renewal, tree bark and indicator red. The Classic model feels more like a bottle versus the wide mouth model which feels more like a Mason jar.

The outside of Klean Kanteen caps is made 100% BPA-free with the inside made of 100% stainless steel. Therefore, your drinks will never touch plastic. And their bottles fit totes by Built NY.

I still have to find a brand that make stainless steel bottles with hip designs than are as good as the SIGG Lifestyle series. If you know one, I would like to know who it is.

  1. You can make personalized Sigg bottles with pictures and messages. I gave one to my friend Jane and she loved it, as it was one of a kind :-)

  2. Unfortunately, I tend to lose these or leave them somewhere, but I just love the earthlust nature line.

  4. I adore my Earthlust Crow bottle as well as a stainless steel one by a company called “Filzer” which has the word “Kewl” graffitied on it in black.

    I like having different sized bottles to use depending on where I’ll be going and how thirsty I think I’ll be (ie: if I know I’m at work, I use a 1L bottle, but going someone for a short time and with a smaller bag, I pack my .5L)

  5. You may want to check out stainless steel water bottles from CamelBak and Thinksport. The former has some interesting designs, while the latter is more professional and cool looking. They are listed in my stainless steel water bottles blog post.

  6. Hello! The bottles at the top are so cute, I love the designs! I currently use a Klean Kanteen bottle. I personally like the minimalist look of the solid color and Klean Kanteen logo. The colors are pretty and do the job for me look-wise. As long as my water is safe to drink and my bottle doesn’t leach BPA, I’m satisfied :) .
    Thanks for posting!
