I purchased my Moonstone S’well bottle (pictured above) because I couldn’t resist the simplicity and uniqueness of it, but also because I was going on a work trip to the dessert and having cold water was a must. Sadly, it didn’t arrive until after I left so I couldn’t give it the ultimate test, but I managed when I got back home.
S’well bottles, although shaped like a traditional glass bottle, can be used for anything; water, tea, juice, coffee, and even WINE! Yes they actually have a size large enough for hold a full bottle of wine. S’well bottles come in three different sizes: 9 oz, 17 oz, and 25 oz.
Each S’well bottle is insulated and made out of the highest grade stainless steel, there’s no condensation, and of course they’re eco-friendly. The beauty of S’well bottles is that they come in so many different colors and textures so you’re sure to find one that fits your style. You may have been able to guess, but these bottles are not cheap.The prices range from $25-$45 depending on the style and size, so of course they are a splurge for some people – including myself. It’s a little hard to justify spending that much money on a bottle, especially since you can buy other reusable bottles at a much cheaper price point. However, I will say that the insulation and no condensation are not found in many lower priced bottles, but what really sold me on justifying that higher price point was their partnering with WaterAid, KCA, and Drink UP.
As far as their claims to keep your drink cold for 24 hours and hot for 12, they’re not kidding. Your drinks will stay cold or hot and you never have to worry about holding a cold or hot water bottle. Also, the design of the neck is large enough for ice cubes. I have been using this bottle since I received it, and absolutely love it. It is perfect for keeping yourself hydrated though out the day, and it’ll be great for my hot morning coffee or tea when the weather gets a cooler. My only suggestion for improving the bottle – and this is only a personal preference – is to have a defined marker to indicate when to stop filling the bottle. As you can see from the picture above the cap goes down part of the way into the bottle neck, a way to help the seal to keep the drink cold or hot I assume, but this also means that if you fill it too much when you close it it will over flow and spill everywhere. However, this is not a deal breaker, it’s just making me pay more attention to what I’m doing. All in all, I would totally consider getting another S’well bottle in the future in either the 9 oz or 25 oz size
