Here's one of mine, I actually lost one of mine to my wife now who also love them. I have on occasion also found the loop that keeps the cap to be sufficient to hold a full bottles weight so when I have had a full pack I have just looped it through some molle and it takes no additional space

My hydro flask just came in. I also got the straw lid to go with it so I don't have to unscrew the lid each time I want to take a drink. Very pleased with it so far. **The dog wasn't as happy with the purchase as evidenced by her unwillingness to take a photo with it**

I have three insulated water bottles these days (good when you want to keep your water colder with ice cubes!):

 

At home a Stainless Steel Ecococoon- http://www.biome.com...4160000977.html

 

On the bike a Camlebak Podium Big Chill - http://www.camelbak....Chill-25oz.aspx

 

At work a Camelbak eddy insulated - http://www.camelbak....sulated-6L.aspx

 

They're all very sturdy, and filling these up with water is a lot kinder for the environment than buying bottled water.

Nothing too special for me, I use a Thermos. It sits in my backpack and goes with me everywhere.

I use my 40oz Hydro Flask every day.  It's an easy way to gauge how much i'm drinking a day by how many times i have to refill it

I'm currently using a Sawyer mini filter and soft pouch, plus a metal bottle from my university days (it's dinged up but it works).  Doing temp work in a mall with a suspect water supply.  Used to boil the water, but I rather drink cold water on summer days.

YoliY Motivational Stainless steel water bottle

 

I have YoliY Water Bottle and this bottle is great. The color is bright and easy to see. Everyone knows it is mine and I don't worry about it getting mixed up with another. The infinity symbol/logo and the John Muir quote are a sufficient dose of hippie without being too much. The actual bottle itself works great, standard vacuum seal. Hot/cold 12/24 hours the whole deal. Holds 1/4 gallon- very convenient for knowing how much water I need to drink during the day. Overall great product!

 

This Bottle is on Amazon for just $21.99!

Right now, it's pretty unglamorous. Seeing as it is most often with me at work, I want something that I don't mind beating the hell out of, and holds a decent amount. Enter the Gatorade 32 oz! I drink 3-5 of these a day. Cheap, easy and durable. 

 

I keep a Vapur anti-bottle around for sticking in a pocket as needed, and a Brita filter bottle for the car.

I had (and still have) a Nalgene bottle that I used every day for a couple of years but being that I commute a lot I got tired of being able to find water but not cold water and ice melts fast here in the deep south. I got a 32oz Hydro Flask on a black Friday sale and have loved it! After dropping it a couple of times while fumbling for my keys I spent the extra $15 on a nice thick clear silicone skin for it (also makes it quieter when setting it down) I have used it for 2+ years and it's great, even with 115 heat index it kept ice for almost a day depending on the temp of the water I was putting in it. 

Walmart has a knockoff Hydro Flask but I don't know how well they work.

I'm rough on my kit, I always have been and I have split, cracked, lost and bunt a few bottles in my time but these guys withstand abuse, I have dropped it several times in the name of testing and still haven't split it. I really love these bottles I now have 3 of them.

Here's a bit of trivia - trivia is useless information - lol.

Now for some more useless information - Nalgene's were originally made to transport dangerous chemicals which is why they are so tough.
