This is an obvious choice, well known for good reason. The double-walled, vacuum-insulated, stainless steel water bottle can keep hot drinks for 12 hours and cold drinks for 24 hours. The bottle is rust-resistant is totally durable.
However, it can be a little heavy for the amount of liquid you get if you go for the 750ml bottle, so maybe not the ideal bottle for a festival if you’re looking for a lightweight option.
This plastic bottle comes with a built-in straw and an integrated loop handle. It clips on, easy to use and lightweight. Everything but the cap can be put in the dishwasher.
Bottled Joy products come with a 100 per cent money-back guarantee, and are the perfect festival bottle if you don’t mind your drinks getting a little warm in the sun.
This reusable bottle comes in a multitude of sizes and can hold up to a litre. It’s leakproof and lightweight and promises a “non-plastic taste” that you can sometimes find with a sports bottle. Zorri Sports bottles come with a removable filter so it’s easy to clean.

This bottle comes with a fruit infuser and can hold about 0.9 litres. The stylish design comes in a number of colours. The bottle is durable, both leakproof and shatterproof and comes with a gel ice ball, which can keep drinks cold for hours without adding ice cubes.
