IMO, this $40 Amazon water bottle is better than a Stanley — here's why

It holds up to 40 ounces of liquid and will keep your H2O ice-cold for hours.

I love a good water bottle and can't help but want to try them all. Staying hydrated is key, and a good tumbler can seriously make all the difference (as silly as that may sound). My water bottle is pretty much my hydration buddy, coming along wherever I go. Stanleys are cool and all, but after seeing everyone and their mother with one, I wanted to try something different. Enter the Simple Modern 40 oz Tumbler I stumbled upon on Amazon — the perfect Stanley dupe. The sleek design, endless colour options and whopping 28,500+ reviews tempted me to try it out, and that's what I did.

Details, pros & cons

This tumbler has quickly become my go-to water bottle and comes with me everywhere. It holds so much water (40 ounces) and helps keep me constantly hydrated.

Its tapered shape allows it to fit perfectly in my car's cup holder, making it easy to take on the go. Plus, the handy handle is very convenient.

I would be lying if I said I haven't purposefully tipped it over to test its leakproof abilities — and I can confirm it does *not* leak (only from the straw if you turn it upside down, but that's a given).

I also appreciate that it comes with two straws, one for backup. The double-wall insulation keeps my drinks ice cold for ages. And the durable stainless steel design has kept it free of dents so far.

My only flaw is that it can get really heavy, but other than that, I have no complaints thus far.

💬 28,400+ reviews

🏆 "This is the best water tumbler I have ever had."

One Amazon shopper said they're "obsessed" with this tumbler. They said it keeps "water cold for a long time" and doesn't leak in their bag.

"This is one of the best water bottles I've ever had," shared another customer. They added that the straw is "easy to clean" and the handle is "super handy." They also said that "ice takes forever to melt" since it's "insulated really well."

Another shopper said this was exactly what they wanted — it fits their car cupholder, is "super big," and is "easy to clean."

While this tumbler has a sea of rave reviews, I did want to hunt down negative reviews. All I could find were complaints about the straw being too big and stiff — one person also said the plastic feels "cheap."

So, what's the verdict?

Stanley this, Stanley that — if you don't want to give into the craze, this Simple Modern water tumbler is a fab alternative. It'll hold lots of water while keeping it cold for long periods, and it'll fit in all your cupholders! There are tons of colours and designs to choose from, whether you're looking for something chic and sleek or fun and unique. In my opinion, it's totally worth the $40.
