Buyers Guide to Leak Proof Water Bottles

Finding a leak proof water bottle that is solid, sturdy, and keeps your drink the temperature you want it can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. In this article we’re running through the qualities of a good leak proof water proof bottle to help you on your search.

What is leak proof? And what can you expect from a leak proof water bottle

Leak proof water bottles are resistant to any leakage. This means that when you fill up, travel with and drink from your water bottle it shouldn’t leak anywhere. Normally, this will be because the leak proof water bottle uses technology that seals the lid.

Unfortunately, a number of “leak proof” water bottles on the market aren’t actually leak proof. How many times have you bought a new water bottle and realised halfway through your car journey that your drink is leaking into your bag. It is soul destroying and really disappointing.

Are non spill water bottle leak proof?

No. Not necessarily. The reason that so many trusting customers get duped is that brands market their bottles as ‘non-spill’ or ‘spill resistant’, however this doesn’t necessarily mean leak proof. Non spill might mean that they are sturdy, easy to hold, and help reduce the likelihood of you dropping or spilling your drink, however it doesn’t mean that it will stop leakage. Leak proof water bottles are a separate thing entirely.

Why it’s worth making the investment in a leak proof bottle

In a nutshell, a leak proof bottle will protect you from leaks whereas anything else probably won’t. Don’t be fooled by clever marketing that dances around the word ‘leak’ to make you think that the water bottle you’re getting will protect you from leakages.

Making an investment in a leak proof bottle is the only way to protect yourself and your belongings from a leak.
