I first bought a Sigg water bottle because I read an article about plastic water bottles leaching chemicals into the water, and it totally freaked me out. Well….AND because they are so trendy and uber-cool looking. Sigg water bottles are made out of super-light aluminum, and come in so many different styles and colors your head will spin.
While Sigg water bottles are a big part of the metal water bottle trend, Sigg is no new kid on the block–this Swiss company has been producing their signature water bottles for over 100 years. According to the Sigg website, Sigg water bottles are incredibly durable, lightweight, and environmentally friendly. Sigg bottles are makde of aluminum, with a special interior liner that prevents flavor transfer, and allows for users to tote not only water, but fruit juices and carbonated beverages too.
If you really want to have the most Sigg water bottle options, you’ll want to buy online. Before you sift through their many, many water bottles (over 100, according to the Sigg website), here are a few guidelines to point you in the right direction:
Are you buying for an athlete? If you’re buying a Sigg water bottle for an athlete, you’ll want to shop for a Sigg Sport style water bottle. These bottles are unique from other Sigg water bottles in two ways–shape and sport top. The shape of this bottle is designed to fit in bike cages (Sigg Sport bottles fit in car cupholders, too). The “active” bottle top that comes with the Sigg Sport water bottle is easy to use while on the go, and is leakproof. Sigg Sport water bottles hold .75 L/25 oz, and another plus for the athlete–they are very, very lightweight. Sigg Sport water bottles are available at the Sigg website for $24.99
Are you buying for a baby or toddler? If you’re buying a Sigg water bottle for a baby or toddler, you’ll want the .3 L or .4 L Sigg Kids bottle. The Sigg Kids water bottle comes in the most adorable designs, like Safari Fun, Oceans and even “Girlie Skull” themes. The smaller size is perfect for little ones, and there are plenty of accessories available for the .3L bottles that are just for little ones. While Sigg bottles are touted as “Sigg water bottles”, the special coating inside the bottles makes it appropriate for many different cold beverages, including high-acid fruit juices, energy drinks, etc. All Sigg water bottles are dishwasher safe, the Kids bottle included. And there are plenty of accessories for the Sigg Kids water bottles, like a neoprene pouch to keep cold drinks cold longer, carry straps, and “kids grip” that makes the Sigg .3L or .4L Kids water bottle easier for little hands to hold. The Sigg .3L Kids Water bottle retails for $17.99 on the Sigg website.
Are you buying a Sigg water bottle for a tween or older kid? If you’re buying a Sigg for a bigger kid, choose a Sigg .6 L Lifestyle bottle. These bottles are a bit larger than the “little kid” .3L bottles, and most importantly, the designs are much cooler. Forget the bubblegum pink .3L “Little Cat” design that toddler girls love–tweens will gravitate to the hot pink and black .6L “Shadow Cat” design. There are several other .6L designs that older kids and tweens will love, like Square Pegs and Yin Yang White, and Sharky Glow. Pouches are available separately for these Sigg water bottles to keep the cold drinks cold. The .6L Sigg water bottles retail for $21.99 on the Sigg website.
Are you buying a Sigg water bottle for a 9-to-5 office worker? If you’re buying a Sigg water bottle for a 9-to-5 office worker, the 1L classic Sigg in a solid color (the Sigg Traveler collection would be great) is the water bottle you want to buy. The solid colors are staid enough for even the most conservative office, and the large, one liter size will get you through the day without constant refills. And best of all, since the bottles aren’t see-through, if you need to stretch your legs, just take your Sigg Classic water bottle to the water fountain for a refill-whether or not it’s really empty (wink). Sigg Classic 1 L water bottles retail for $24.99 – $29.99 on the Sigg website.
Are you buying a Sigg water bottle for a college student? If you’re buying a Sigg water bottle for a college student, you’ll want to purchase from the Sigg Lifestyle collection of water bottles. THese are the highly stylized, artistic water bottles that Sigg is famous for–and of course your newly independent college student will want to express him or herself with the perfect unique design. Choices include Flower Girl, Gorilla, and Green Is the New Black. Sigg water bottles in the Lifestyle collection come in a variety of sizes, but you’ll want to purchase either a .6L or 1L for your college student. Sigg water bottles from the Lifestyle collection range in price from $21.99 to $24.99.
