Say goodbye to lukewarm beverages—insulated water bottles can keep beverages piping hot or icy cold for hours. Packing your own insulated water bottle when you fly can save you money (bring it through security empty and fill it up with chilled water at a bottle refill station) and help you keep that overpriced airport coffee warm through an entire flight. These are the best insulated water bottles for travel.
Snow Peak Kanpai Bottle 500
The Japanese-designed Kanpai Bottle 500 from Snow Peak is vacuum-sealed and made from double-wall stainless steel that’s lightweight and won’t retain tastes or odors. The Kanpai Bottle will keep drinks hot or cold for hours.
The Kanpai comes with three lids—one to lock in heat, one to freeze for chilled beverages, and one for sipping on the go.
