This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in November of 2018. When it comes to portable drinking containers, stainless steel canteens are tough to beat, since they've got the durability to go the distance. Many of today's models are excellent at keeping your libations either cold or hot, according to your preference, and are extremely stylish, too. Here you'll find a wide range of sizes and shapes, from standard military style to contemporary bottles. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best stainless steel canteen on Amazon.

Added popular offerings from Hydro Flask, Yeti, Nalgene, and Klean Kanteen, as these are proven to be reliable and useful in a range of situations, from camping to commuting. Also selected the G.A.K. G.I. Style for those looking for traditional military design as well as the Stanley Adventure, which is a modern take on traditional canteens.
