    Default What water bottle fits these needs?

    Normally I shop USA made and such, but for now I simply need the following:

    - lightweight
    - leak-proof
    - easy to refill for a clumsy kiddo
    - drop-resistant/won't crack
    - lid is attached

    It doesn't matter to me where it is made, the materials used, or the price.

    TIA!

    What do you mean by lid is attached? Can it be removable if it can be refilled without removing lid? I don't know of anything outright as we mostly use the vacuum insulated stainless steel bottles which would be too heavy but I've spent countless hours looking at water bottles so I may be able to suggest something.

    Sorry - OK to take lid off to fill, but not every time he needs to drink

    Would this work? https://www.amazon.com/Nathan-Fire-a...HA1AM9WKM&th=1

    I have a few like this. I like the lid strap for easy carrying.

    Ah, that is similar to the Polar bottles which we have a few of, but for some reason I had not considered.

    This is for a week of school camp and they hike allllll day.

    I have the polar bottles, too. They are roughly equal in quality but for some reason I liked the Nathan one better. They are the bottles I take when I'm out an about all day and need something lightweight and easy to drink out of.

    I use contigo water bottles for my kids. I think they are very kid friendly and the stainless steel cups keep the water super cold with a few ice cubes in them. There is often still ice when my son comes home from school.

    We use a Kleen Kanteen for camp, filled mostly with ice. They are dinged up with chipping paint but they are very functional 4 years later.
    An alternative is one of the collapsible bottles. It is super light weight, easy to fill, and clips to a bag with a carabiner.
