Best gym water bottles for 2022

Super Sparrow sports water bottle 

Super Sparrow water bottles are proving to be a big hit thanks to their sleek exterior and contemporary designs.

The company’s sports bottle should make for a handy gym water bottle as there’s a simple push button mechanism, so you just need the one hand to enjoy a quick glug – perfect if you’re carrying gym bags and sports equipment. There’s a lock feature, too, so you can avoid any pesky spillages when you’re on the move.

With four bottle sizes to choose from, ranging from 350ml to a litre, and loads of colours to consider – fuchsia, dark red and mint are all up for grabs – you can make sure you find a bottle to suit your style preferences and gym routine. There’s a small strap, too, which is always useful.

The Gym Keg sports water bottle

If you’re after a hefty gym water bottle for those particularly long training sessions, or you want to save yourself a few trips to the water fountain, opt for a keg-style bottle.

You can carry over two litres of water in this keg, and it comes with an insulated (and very snazzy) cover so you can keep the plastic bottle in good condition.

We love the vibrant cover – easy to spot for sure – and it’s said to be a lightweight, BPA-free plastic design, so it shouldn’t be too heavy to lug around.

Other convenient features include the pop cap lid and built-in handle, which lets you carry the keg with one hand.

Philips GoZero bottle

This gym water bottle from Philips includes a filter that aims to reduce chlorine, soluble lead and pesticides so you can enjoy cleaner tap water.

It could be a handy feature if you’re filling up in various gym water fountains and taps and want to be extra careful. Just fill up as usual and the water goes through the filter as you drink.

The push button is also useful if you’re pedalling or on a running machine and need a quick sip.

CamelBak Chute Mag bottle

CamelBak bottles are a go-to for cyclists, runners and gym goers. This 750ml bottle is a compact size that should slot neatly into the bottle holders you find on rucksacks, so it’s an ideal hiking and commuting option, too.

When you’re drinking, the magnetic cap remains securely in place to prevent the lid from flapping in your face – clever touch that helps this bottle stand out.

This style of bottle has a wide spout so you can enjoy large, well-earned gulps of water after an intense treadmill session.

Science in Sport Water Bottle

A budget-friendly, lightweight choice from Science in Sport. This 800ml gym water bottle features measuring points to help when you’re mixing electrolyte powders, or even just diluting juice.

We like the bright yellow colour which is sure to stand out when you’re rummaging around in the kitchen drawer trying to find your gym water bottle in a hurry. This is a practical option for cyclists, too.

Hydro Flask 

If you’re after a solid, stainless steel design, Hydro Flask has a wide selection to choose from. This is a 620ml gym water bottle, so fairly neat in size as water bottles go.

It’s a handy choice for winter sports, as it’s said the bottle will keep your drink hot for 12 hours, or cold for 24. The powder coated exterior gives the bottle a cool look, and it claims to make the bottle easier to grip too – handy for sweaty hands when you’re training at the gym.

The handle is also a welcomed feature, especially when you’re constantly moving around the gym using different machines and equipment.

Yeti Rambler bottle

This hardy gym water bottle boasts double-wall insulation for extra cool drinks. It also features the brand’s ‘chug cap’, which is designed to allow for efficient water breaks when you’re mid exercise.

The stainless steel design makes it a durable choice so it’s one to consider for hiking and outdoor activities too. As is always the case with Yeti, expect an unfussy yet sleek look.

Takeya Water Bottle 

There are loads of sizes and colours to choose from in the Takeya water bottle range. This gym water bottle is another stainless steel, double-wall vacuum insulated design, and it claims to be a sweat-free bottle so you shouldn’t be left with condensation in your bag or rings on your table.

If you’re fed up of attempting to clean narrow bottles, this design features a wide mouth so you can scrub away with ease. This should allow for easy refilling, too.

Finisterre Nalgene Water Bottle 

For a large gym water bottle that’s in between a keg and your average 750ml size, give this Finisterre gym water bottle a try. It can hold just over 900ml, yet it should fit into your rucksack without any bother.

As a reusable, shatter-resistant plastic bottle, it shouldn’t be too heavy either. The narrow top aims to prevent unwanted spillages when you’re chugging away, and the bottle features the brand’s iconic branding, so it would make an easy gift for the Finisterre enthusiasts in your life.

We reckon this is a solid all-rounder that’s likely to come in handy for a range of outdoor activities, too, such as wild swimming, surfing and camping.
