Which bottles are suitable for on the go, what can you take water or juices with you? GIGA provides an overview of drinking containers, names test winners and bestsellers.
A bottle should always be in your pocket or in your backpack – regardless of whether you sit on the train for two hours, stroll through the pedestrian zone one morning or cycle to the lake. Because most people drink too little rather than too much.
Not everyone wants to use returnable bottles from the supermarket, especially since one should not use disposable bottles more than once: There is a suspicion that microplastics and / or plasticizers can pass into the drink over time. If you like to fill up your drinking container at the tap, if you want a special closure, if you want a chic bottle, check out the following recommendations:
Test winner metal bottle: Sigg Slow Moon Dinos
The Austrian consumer magazine Konsument, comparable to the Stiftung Warentest in Germany, put the Sigg Slow Moon Dinos 400 ml on the podium in April 2020 under the metal bottles.
Sigg is the very popular Swiss manufacturer. This model is a children’s bottle, which is also available with other designs. If you are looking, you will find similar single-color Sigg bottles – you can choose the color on Amazon. A special feature is the large closure with hygienic cap and screw cap. According to the manufacturer, the container is guaranteed to be leak-proof and the aluminum has a stable inner coating.
Test winner plastic bottle I: Tupperware EcoEasy
Among the plastic bottles, the EcoEasy bottle (500 ml) from Tupperware scored highly with consumers. The colors are semi-transparent, different sizes and closures are available. The water bottle should stand better in bags and backpacks: Consumers found that the test model (with a flip-top closure) was not 100% leak-proof. Nevertheless, the Tupperware was the test winner in its category. No pollutants were found.
Test winner plastic bottle II: Aladdin Active Hydration
Öko-Test (04/2019) also examined the drinking bottles for pollutants in the test. But behavior in practice was also put to the test. The test winner was the Aladdin Active Hydration bottle (800 ml).
The drinking cap can be folded in with one hand and closes leak-proof. If you unscrew the lid, you can easily clean the bottle through the large opening. The Aladdin Active Hydration is also dishwasher safe.

Amazon bestseller: 720 ° DGREE water bottle
On Amazon, another model is featured several times in the top 10 bestsellers, currently also in first place: the 720 ° DGREE drinking bottle. This 1 liter bottle is available in numerous colors.
The water bottle is characterized by two special features: First, the – as the manufacturer calls it – anti-gluck drinking opening, for a “targeted, constant drinking flow”. Second, the fruit insert, in which you can put fruits or herbs for a change of taste. My tip, always a good choice in the water: a few slices of ginger!
