Top 5 Best Water Bottle Holders Of 2018

March 19, 2018

It's a fact that one of the main reasons people have a hard time bringing their water bottle everywhere is it is just not convenient.

At the same time, if they own an expensive bottle or flask they don’t want it to get damaged or scratched. This is understandable, but there is an easy way to fix this: by purchasing a water bottle pouch. Water bottle pouches have been designed to give you the easiest possible way to take your bottle on the go while protecting it from the temperatures outside or any damage it may face.

There are simply thousands of brands of water bottle pouches on the market today, and it can be difficult to know which ones are the best. Today, we are going to be reviewing five water bottle pouch brands so you can see which one could the best for you. 

Why do I need a water bottle pouch?

This is usually the first question asked whenever someone brings up even the thought of purchasing a water bottle pouch, and it is by no means a bad question. Many people are curious whether a pouch is going to help protect their bottle or if it is just going to be a hassle trying to get to the water.

Water bottle pouches, the good ones we might add, are developed to make it easier to take your water bottle on the go. This will make it convenient to always have the bottle with you, especially if you are out camping, on a hike, or want it with you on a run. Water bottles can be very pricey if you are purchasing a higher-end model. You want to protect your bottle from breaking or from any outside damage it may face. This is another reason why you need a water bottle pouch, as it will do just that, and insulate the interior to maintain its proper temperature.

What to look for in a water bottle pouch?

Since there are so many water bottle pouches on the market today, it can be difficult to know what separates the best from the worst. First off, you want to purchase a pouch that will never get in the way, and one which create a more effective means for carrying around the water bottle. Find one that has a shoulder strap that can easily go over your body, so you won’t even be able to feel it. Or you can find one that can easily clip to a bag so you can always have it with you. If they are too big or bulky and are hard to carry, the bag will just be a nuisance and you will not want to use it.

Storage space on water bottle pouches are another important aspect. You want a couple pockets other than the place that contains the water bottle, to hold things such as your wallet or your keys or your mobile. This is especially helpful for when you are at the gym, to give you peace of mind that all your valuables are in one place. Having the extra storage area is great on a hike as well, as it is a place to store a snack.

While the look of the pouch is also important, what is even more important is the material the pouch is made of; it must be made of strong and thick material so it can protect the bottle inside from any damage. On top of that, find one that is thick enough to keep the liquid cool from the heat of direct sunlight.
