If you’ve made getting into shape a priority on your 2014 calendar, or if you’re just looking for a new water bottle to help you stay hydrated throughout the day, you may be overwhelmed with all of the options available. Long gone are the days of a simple pull and sip spout or flip top bottle. Here are six great options to consider.

Camelbak Eddy Bottle

This is a great flip top designed bottle that includes a straw. This bottle doesn’t need to be tipped to drink from, though if you prefer this the straw can easily be removed to allow for this. The parts are all removable to make for easy cleaning by hand or in the top rack of your dishwasher. Water bottle is BPA Free and has a wide mouth so you can easily add ice. Another plus? There are a lot of colors available to fit your personality.

No more puddle of melted water around your water bottle, on your desk, or exercise equipment!

Camelbak Eddy Glass .7-Liter Water Bottle

For those who don’t want a plastic bottle, this glass water bottle includes a silicone sleeve so that it is easier to hold onto. Camelbak water bottles have a unique drinking mechanism that can be flipped open, bit gently and sipped to drink. This glass bottle is also dishwasher safe. One small downside, the bottle is bigger than the plastic versions and so it doesn’t fit well in cup holders or drink holders on bikes.

Now, the company has developed a new product with a smaller drinking spout however the top can be removed to add ice.
