Just in time for your final beach day or local hike of the summer, this CamelBak 40-ounce vacuum-insulated water bottle is just $15 at REI. Not only is it slightly larger than your average 32-ounce Nalgene, this CamelBak comes with some actually useful details, like a magnetic cap, which prevents water from spilling all over your bag, and a chute-style lid so that you can walk and sip without spilling water on yourself. (CamelBak water bottles are also a favorite of interior designer Kelly Wearstler, who attests that her bottle is “easy to tote around.”) Plus, this bottle is made of dishwasher-safe stainless steel, keeping cold beverages cold and hot beverages hot — so you’ll be able to use this as a thermos for coffee or hot cocoa once the temperature dips. Also, if you’d prefer a color other than cardinal red, the water bottle is available in blue, purple, olive, and black.
