I’m looking for bottles for my boys (aged between one and five) that I can easily carry in my rucksack and that DO. NOT. LEAK. I have spent hours mopping up the aftermath of bottle leakage. Not cool.
It’s great if it keeps water cold all day, is easy to drink out of on the go, and grab-able for little hands. Easy cleaning is a must, drop-proof is of course essential when dealing with mini adventurers, and I guess it’s nice for them to have something that actually looks quite badass for a bottle.

At £25 the Rambler JR is quite a bit more expensive than other water bottles for kids. In comparison to the other similar stainless steel bottles I have bought. However, it stood up to the test of the wild ones far better AND on top of that, it doesn’t leak (have I said that already?).
The cost is what you’d expect from a quality outdoor brand like YETI, so it’s really a matter of weighing up whether the longevity and design of the product is worth the price tag for you. Personally, I am confident the kids will get plenty of use out of them, which makes the price tag super acceptable.
The Rambler JR really feels like it could last for years. Let’s just hope they don’t grow out of them too fast!
