10 Best Filtered Water Bottles to Purify Stream Water and Tap Water

Skip the water cooler talk with a filtered water bottle.

Clean drinking water is imperative, no matter what you're doing.

Whether you're at the hunting lease, backpacking, or even at work, having access to clean water is crucial if you want to stay hydrated and feel good.

An energy drink or coffee before taking on the day is fine, but it's useless if you aren't drinking water afterward.

Instead of figuring out how to get huge water jugs into the backcountry, consider a filtered water bottle. A filtering water bottle is a game-changer for those who drink a lot of water.

I think we can all attest that we'd take a bottle of Smartwater over a glass of tap water, correct? That's because we know the water tastes better from the plastic bottle because it's been filtered.

Buying cases of plastic bottles isn't the most eco-friendly option, and face it, you already know it's going to be cheaper just to buy a reusable water bottle. Or even better, a filtered bottle.

Here are 10 of the best filtered water bottles we could track down, and a few thoughts on each one.

1. LIFESTRAW GO
