In the last couple years I’ve become very into water bottles. Maybe I started working out more, or maybe I’m just getting old, but something happened where I regularly found myself dehydrated. There’s nothing worse than being trapped somewhere — like a conference or a meeting — and being thirsty. It doesn’t need to be that way when you have a trusty water bottle.

I’ve gone through my fair share of water bottles. Last year I was obsessed with the Hidrate Spark water bottle, which costs way more than I’d like to admit, but it broke after a couple months of use and the customer service wasn’t great. A lot of the plastic water bottles I have tried also tended to give off a plastic-y taste at times, so I knew the next water bottle I wanted to try had to be made out of glass.

When I saw the photos of these new glass water bottles from Soma, I knew I needed to try one. It’s a little on the expensive side at $30, but it might just be the perfect water bottle. Let me explain.

Soma is known for their sleek water-filter pitchers. Apartment Therapy has written about them plenty of times in the past, and it’s a brand I trust.

The new water bottles from Soma are just as sleek as their pitchers. They are a bit skinnier and more lightweight compared to other glass water bottles I’ve tried. The water bottles hold 17 ounces of water (the perfect size). It’s made out of BPA-free, shatter-resistant glass, and covered in a nice silicone sleeve. It’s also dishwasher-safe (besides the cap). Part of the cap of the water bottle is made out bamboo, which comes from a sustainable source. .

I’ve dropped this water bottle a handful of times and it’s been perfectly fine. I love the skinnier shape of the bottle compared to other glass water bottles. It’s also super lightweight, so it’s easy to lug around. The silicone sleeves come in a variety of different colors, all of which are pretty.

I only have one problem with the bottle: the bamboo cap. The cap actually consists of two parts: the bamboo shield and the plastic white cap underneath the bamboo. I can already tell the bamboo is fading a little bit after a month or so of use. It also slips off the white plastic part too easily when I grab the water bottle from the top. It’s not a huge deal in terms of the function of the water bottl, but it takes away from the sleekness of the product.
