Stanley Water Bottle Review: Why You Need One ASAP

Seriously, there's a reason everyone has a Stanley water bottle. You need one.

Stanley Water Bottle Review: Why You Need One ASAP


We all know it’s important to stay hydrated, but it can be hard as a parent to remember that for yourself when you have so many other things to get through in a day. (But we know your little one is always hydrated with kids' water bottles!)

One of the tough things about drinking water is having a cup you love, and yes, it makes a huge difference in the amount of water you drink.

You might have heard about Stanley’s popular cup, the Stanley Quencher H2.0 FlowState Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler. We’re here to tell you the Stanley water bottle is a winner for a reason—it keeps liquids warm or icy, is comfortable to grip and even fits in those notoriously narrow umbrella stroller and Jeep wagon stroller cup holders. Read on to find out more about why we absolutely adore this water bottle.

What is the Stanley water bottle?

The Stanley water bottle is a vacuum-sealed insulated water bottle that can keep liquids hot or cold for up to two days, depending on the style and size. Its rotating top has three positions for whatever drink style you like best: an included straw, a drink opening and a fully covered top for when you’re in motion.

The handle on the 30-ounce, 40-ounce and 64-ounce styles are U-shaped and have a comfortable grip. It is available in tons of fun colors, like pink dusk, orchid and jade (just to name a few). Plus, I love that it's made from recycled stainless steel and is dishwasher-safe.

And the popularity goes beyond just every influencer on social media having one of these brilliant hydration helpers—it's genuinely easy to clean and fun to carry.

Stanley water bottle features we love

  • Holds anywhere from 12 to 64 ounces depending on the model
  • Comfortable handle
  • Three drink styles, including a straw, drink opening and covered top
  • Comes in fun colors
  • Keeps beverages hot or cold for long periods of time

My Stanley water bottle review


I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m emotionally attached to my 40-ounce Stanley water bottle. I get irate when I don’t have access to it, such as when I’m traveling, and I’ve had to stop myself from buying additional colors. It keeps liquids cold—even when I’ve left the cup in my car in 100-degree weather—and warm, and I absolutely love the way the water drinks from the straw.

I also am a klutz, so having the ability to close the lid completely while toting it around town is key. If you’re on a tight water bottle budget, there’s also a Stanley cup alternative to consider. The large capacity of the Stanley Adventure Quencher and other bottle styles makes it a brilliant choice for long days on the go and on road trips.

Plus, it's virtually indestructible. It takes a lot (and we mean a lot!) of wear and tear to ruin this thing, so you can easily expect it to serve you for years at a time. It's also dishwasher-safe and features a straw security mechanism to help you avoid losing the extra-long straw.

But don't worry, if you end of up losing or breaking your Stanley water bottle straw, you can order cheap replacements here.
