Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water Bottles : Pure Water

If you're serious about staying hydrated and concerned about the bad press that some plastic water bottles are getting, try Klean Kanteen's stainless steel bottles.

They're trail tough and available in a variety of sizes, with a variety of lids. Klean Kanteen even makes a stainless steel baby bottle.

I love using these bottles because i can drop them over and over again without breaking them. So far, no leaks, so the lid that came with the models I tested seems to have a good seal. And, even when my water gets warm, it still tastes fresh. No funky aftertaste. That feature alone is worth the weight.

So they're not much to look at, but these humble, utilitarian bottles are perfect for hiking, road trips, and any other occasion.

Bottom Line: Clean, simple, and fresh. And recyclable.--E.D. (June 07)

Price: $12.95-$32, depending on size.
