Field Tested: The SOMA Water Bottle

As someone who runs a lot, lives in Florida, and spends a good amount of time on the go and traveling - I needed a quality water bottle. Something that will keep me hydrated and travel well. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of good-looking, well-made everyday objects, so I was on the hunt for something a little nicer than the average sports bottle or post-race freebie.

Enter SOMA. SOMA started out making beautiful water pitchers, carafes and filters and partners with Charity:Water as part of their “mission to hydrate the world.” Portions of every sale go towards providing clean water to millions of people around the world.

Their new water bottle debuted last fall, and it - dare is say - is the perfect water bottle. The simple, elegant design is made of a silicone sleeve (stays grippy, and doesn’t bead up with condensation), a sustainably made (and leak proof) bamboo cap, and shatter resistant BPA-free glass. While I haven't actively tried to break the glass, I have knocked it over and dropped it multiple times without incident.  

 It holds 17oz, and while I wouldn’t mind a larger size option, the bottle fits comfortably in a cup holder, backpack/tote sleeve and even my back pocket. Also, and this may sound like a silly thing to be excited about - but the lip of the bottle is curved, which makes the drinking experience so much smoother than the average rigid lid of a plastic bottle (something I hadn’t noticed before, but now i don’t think i can go back).

The perfect addition to my everyday carry, I expect to use this handsome bottle for quite a long time.
