    I am in need of a new water bottle for everyday usage. I am looking for insulated as I am not a fan of warm water and something in 32-40+ oz capacity. Looking at the Camelback Chute SS and a hydro flask.
    looking for recommendations if you have used either.

    Klean Kanteen or Yeti.

    http://yeti.com/ Both Steel so heavy, and are pricy but get the job done and last forever. Wife leaves them in car overnight in NM Summer Heat and Ice still there in AM, from a noonish loading. I had to buy several sets as Wife and Daughter kept disappearing mine.

    Yeti Tumbler. Yes, I know it isn't a bottle, but these keep water cold for a long time; I mean like 26 hours.

    I've had good luck carrying a Thermos 24oz Stainless King Drink Bottle filled with ice and water. Then I carry a few extra bottles of water that I can refill in the ice. Stays cold for hours and hours.

    I have the tall 40-oz Hydroflask and it does an excellent job of keeping the fluid still cold enough after several hours. I do also use the 30-oz Yeti Rambler in the office and it is also a fine product. The 36-oz Yeti bottle may find a place in my EDC, but then again the 64-oz makes more sense since I already have the 40-oz Hydroflask. All three of these products are insulated.

    Another vote for klean kanteen. I got a 20oz insulated steel finish. It keeps drinks icy cold even in the Australian heat, and it's dimensions are not too excessive for its capacity. The mouth is big enough to take 4cm ice cubes.

    An excellent product.

    +1 for Hydroflask. I own about 8 individual products and love them - bottles of various sizes, pint glasses and a thermos. I would stress double-wall insulation - the entire point is to keep hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold. No reason to buy a bottle that is not double-wall insulated.

    I use YETI here are the 18oz and a 64oz that serves as my daily "Reserve H20 "
    I tried Klean Kanteen for a 6-7years ... I give them a 7.5 out 10.

    YETI is a solid 10 out of 10... fill it with ice to the top 1 1/2 days ICE cold while I was in Salt Lake City last month in 90-100 degree heat.

    Hydroflask is great. Can't comment on the Yeti bottle, but I have buddies that love them. I purchased a Klean Kanteen recently and do not care for it when compared to the hydroflask. Doesn't keep water cold nearly as long and sweats really bad.

    I like my Kleen Kanteen a lot. The ice in it will last almost eight hours. It doesn't sweat either!

    I can't speak highly enough of Hydroflask.

    I love my klean kanteen with swing-lok. No experience with the insulated ones but if they are half as awesome as my regular stainless one then they will last you for life.

    All good recommendations. Take note that an insulated bottle and a vacuum bottle are very different animals in construction and thermal properties. lately the buzz about how well yeti cups keep ice is certainly deserved (I have a yeti bottle and a Klein kanteen, both are vacuum construction). It's nothing new scientifically in the industry. Stanley has been using the technology since roughly 1920. My Daily use Stanley bottles from 1973 and 1989 are as good now as my 2016 yeti.
    A note on Kleen Kanteen, they make simple single wall, non insulated, non vacuum bottles also.

    I have the 64oz yeti and I use it to refill a 40oz Takeya.

    Yetis are definitely the best but I hate the screw on and off lids.

    I like drinking from the lid on the Takeya better.

    Take a look at RTIC. Half the price of Yeti and work just as well.

    Hydroflask, Zojurushi, Avex, and Klean Kanteen are my favorites!

    The RITC looks exactly like the YETI product. I wonder if one is a rebrand of the other.
