When you're looking to buy a water bottle, you're quickly confronted with the many references on the market.

You can go for different water bottle materials depending on your preferences and how you're going to use it.
Although attractive and suitable for all liquid temperatures, glass water bottles are not well suited to your daily routine. Whatever your activities, you run the risk of breaking your equipment every time you go out, despite the option of adding a protective cover.
While this type of water bottle may be just what you need for your days at the office or your bottle at home, it's not the best choice when you want to go hiking or travelling with all your belongings in a single hiking bag. Moreover, glass is a heavier material that can quickly add unpleasant extra weight to your activities.
