Lately, many individuals have been deferring from the traditional plastic water bottles and leaning towards using reusable water bottles. The traditional plastic water bottles from various companies like Zephyrhills, Dasani water, Aquafina, and Smart Water are highly convenient and easy to use and dispose of, however, they may not be the most beneficial towards your health. Although plastic water bottles are proven to not contain any BPAs, which are toxins found in plastic, there is the potential that they may contain harmful bacteria after usage, especially when they are being kept in the hot sun for a period of time. People are beginning to use reusable water bottles instead of plastic ones due to various health benefits and the more environmentally friendly name that they carry.

Two extremely popular brands right now are Hydro Flask and Yeti. Many people can be seen at school, work, the gym, or even on a boat or at the beach with their new reusable bottles. Yeti, a popular brand that makes not only water bottles but also coolers, is becoming extremely popular, as well as Hydro Flasks. For people who truly want to switch to environmentally friendly bottles, the debate on which choice is better is ongoing.

The Yeti rambler bottle, which is a stainless steel, double-walled, vacuum insulated bottle that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also does not leave a metallic taste in your water. It keeps whatever inside of it cold or hot, and even leaves ice in it for up to 72 hours. Olivia Mackenzie, proud YETI user, mentions that “I have never really been into Hydro Flasks. I personally love my YETI; it is super reliable.”

Similarly, Hydro Flask bottles, which usually have a more colorful look to them, have a no-sweat exterior, meaning regardless of the bottle’s outside temperature, the inside temperature will remain unchanged for a period of time. Hydro Flask user Annarose Alemayehu mentions “Hydro Flasks are just super cute! Everyone puts stickers on theirs and they’re super easy to carry around school or to the gym.”

One major difference between the two bottles are that YETI bottles are probably slightly more durable, as they have been shown to experience less denting and scratching when they are being dropped. However, Hydroflasks are usually more affordable, with prices at around $24.99 compared to the $29.99 YETI prices for the 20 oz bottles. have a wider mouth opening, more accessories, and a lifetime warranty. YETIs have more convenient openings to drink out of; however, their warranty is only five years. At the end of the day, both bottles are made of the same materials, and bring the same function toward the consumer. It mostly just depends on the look of the bottle, and the price that the consumer will spend on it. But one thing remains clear, regardless of whether you get a YETI or Hydro Flask, both are still superior to the nasty plastic water bottles that you buy at Walmart.
