Hydration while traveling - which tourist bottle should you choose?

Although tourist bottles are the main subjects of today's entry, it will also include information on other containers used to store and carry water. While reading the text, you will learn what their advantages are and which solution will be appropriate for the planned trip.

Tourist bottles - steel or plastic?

Buying high-quality tourist bottles is profitable for any person who travels frequently. Thanks to these containers, you can easily take care of the body's hydration, and thus - well-being and concentration. However, the choice of bottles should not be accidental. When viewing individual models, it is worth paying attention to the capacity and design. Another important distinguishing feature is the material from which the bottles are made.

Due to the materials used, tourist bottles can be easily divided into:

  • steel bottles
  • plastic bottles

A stainless steel bottle (such as that available in our military online store Klean Kanteen Bidon Classic Sport Cap 3.0) Klean Kanteen Classic Sport Cap 3.0) works great in spring and summer, as it keeps the temperature of cold drinks well. It has a wide opening for easy filling and cleaning, and openings at the plugs for convenient transport. Plastic bottles, on the other hand, are lighter and suitable for the storage of warm and cool liquids. To make using them comfortable, we offer products made of a modern and safe material - Tritan™.

Containers for storing and carrying water

Hard bottles, i.e. made of stainless steel or plastic, are not the only solutions worth considering. In order to be able to freely drink not only water, isotonic drink and juice, but also aromatic coffee or tea while traveling, it is good to equip yourself with a thermal mug. Our assortment includes various variants, e.g. with a straw for easy dispensing of liquids and a leak-proof lid. If, while on the road, you order take-away drinks and ask for them in your mug, you can also consider buying a folding mug. After folding, you can easily hide it in a small pocket.

Other suggestions for people who plan to stay overnight during the trip are soft water bags with a valve and canisters with a tap. These containers available in the bushcraft store have a capacity of up to 20 liters, therefore they allow you to carry water needed for cooking, refreshing or washing clothes. If the trip is to be combined with the pursuit of passion, e.g. with fishing, we also recommend checking canteens with covers, stainless steel flasks and pockets for water bottles and thermos flasks.


BWithout good hydration, it is difficult to enjoy the charms of travel and the closeness to nature. In order to facilitate the supply of the right amount of water to the body and be able to use it at any time, it is worth equipping yourself with good-quality containers. The most popular ones are hard tourist bottles made of steel or plastic. In autumn and winter, you can also think about thermal mugs for coffee and tea and flasks. When it gets warm, the cups are also useful for iced and cold drinks. And if the trip includes sections where water is not available, we recommend adding soft water bags or water bottles with a larger capacity to the shopping cart.
