There are probably three key things to think about when choosing the perfect running water bottle to take on a run.
Lots of the drink bottles we sell at here make excellent running water bottles and of course, their usability doesn't stop there. These bottles are designed for all aspects of life aiming to replace disposable plastic bottles not only while you run or go to the gym but also while you work, play and even while you sleep.
If you are looking for running bottles where you don't have to take the lid off to drink then our top recommendations would be either the FOSH Active or Klean Kanteen.
The FOSH Active Water bottle is a great size for running hydration as it holds 750ml, keeping you hydrated for longer, especially useful for longer runs or hot days. It comes with a leak-proof D-ring cap as standard and you can get either a flip lid or a sports cap for easy single-handed hydration on the run.
Klean Kanteen comes in a great range of sizes so it's easy to find the perfect size for you. From a dinky 355ml that weighs just over 150g, write up to nearly 2l. Although the most popular size for runners is the 532ml or the 800ml bottle.
Klean Kanteen also does a great range of insulated Kanteens and their commitments to versatility and design mean that all the classic caps fit all the classic bottles. So your perfect running bottle can also be your perfect coffee flask.
The Perfect Capacity
Weight and capacity are both important considerations when choosing a running water bottle.
If you are looking for a small bottle we have two favourites. The Chilly's 260ml Insulated bottle (also available in flamingo print or gorgeous metallics) or the Que 355ml Collapsible bottle. And if you want small and to have a sports cap then the 12oz Kid Kanteen or even the smaller of the Rex London collapsible bottles might be just what you are after.
The Que bottle is certainly worth a look if you don't mind stopping for a drink while you run as it's silicone construction makes it easy to grip and of course, you can squash it down when you're done.
500ml - 800ml seems to be the most popular size as you can keep yourself hydrated for longer distance runs or workouts. And they're the perfect size to make yourself a homemade isotonic drink.
Insulated Water Bottles
Again we have a few great options if you are looking for an insulated water bottle. The FOSH Vital is a great option for running. It's the most lightweight of comparably sized insulated bottles and the triple wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks COLD for 24 hours and HOT for 12 hours.
However, as yet there isn't a sports cap available yet you might prefer the insulated Klean Kanteen with either the 12oz or the 20oz being the most popular sizes for running. The 20oz (592ml) bottle gives an impressive 20 hours HOT and 50 hours ICED so its perfect for whatever you want to be drinking.
