Exercise, stay hydrated and stash those little valuables … Here’s a nifty BPA-free, food grade stainless steel reusable water bottle that’s perfect for the exercise enthusiast: the lightweight Sport+Store 20-ounce water bottle is designed to keep your thirst quenched + stash your little vitals. The twist off bottom compartment holds keys, credit card, id, cash, lip balm, tissues and other small essentials while you pursue your fab fitness routine wherever – at the gym, yoga studio, track, beach or park.

I’ve been testing this sporty vessel in a variety of settings — on the golf course, kayaking, hiking, biking and goofing around at the beach. Aside from the fact that you can drink your tap or filtered water without buying a costly disposable plastic bottle (which can leach toxins into the water; take 1,000 years to decompose, and add up to a few hundred bucks a year) – what I like most is its multi-functionality and sleek ergonomic design.

It’s super light and feels good in your hand. The top cap twists nice and tight, there are no pesky leaks to worry about. The bottom is weighted and the carabiner link makes it easy to carry.

I have to say, it’s very cool to stash my keys, lip balm, driver’s license, cash or credit card in this water bottle when I’m out and about. (Of course, the more you put in there, the heavier it gets.)  The bottom compartment not only serves to store stuff but could also be used as an on the go drinking cup. Taking a mini journey that doesn’t require the extra storage? Simply twist off the bottom and leave it at home. You know how it is, it’s neat to have options.

The Sport+Store comes in an array of colors, including: black, white, chrome, twilight, coral or leaf … of course, there’s no BPA, lead or aluminum in sight. Pick-up @ sportandstore.com $19.95. Stay hydrated, my friends.
