Having quick access to a water bottle has become a part of life for many people, whether you’re in the gym, on the trail, or at your desk. Stainless steel has become the go-to choice because of its durability and environmental benefits. Yet there is a drawback to that material, especially over time — taste.

Stainless steel tends to hold onto flavors, which means that this morning’s coffee may linger longer than you'd like. Acidic drinks can also lead to a tiny bit of corrosion, enough to give water a metallic taste. That problem is solved with Purist water bottles, which feature an incredibly thin glass finish (just 60 nanometers) inside. This ultra-thin glass won’t crack or break, yet it creates a barrier between the liquid and the stainless steel container to deliver a clean taste. Go back and forth between different beverages without any lingering effects. Hot drinks will stay warm for 12 hours, and cold beverages cool for 24 hours. Choose from 10-, 18-, and 32-ounce bottles, with three options for tops. They’re all leak-proof with wide mouths for easy cleaning.

If water bottles have ever left a sour taste in your mouth, you now have a stylish and long-lasting solution that can help you avoid disposable and plastic alternatives.
