S’ip by S’well at Best Buy


Nowadays, everyone is trying to get as far away from plastics as possible. Nowhere is this truer than when it comes to drinking water. Hardly anyone wants to walk around with a plastic water bottle anymore, and it is much more the norm to see people with their own personal, portable water bottles. And, when it comes to personal water bottles, the name S’well is pretty much at the top of the list in terms of both function and style. Now, the swell S’well bottle (see what I did there? I bet no other writer has ever used that pun. Ever.) now has a little brother, or little sister, or whatever you want to call it. It’s smaller. It’s called S’ip and I’m here to tell you a little bit about it. Ain’t that s’well? Okay, I’ll stop now, I promise. S’okay? S’alright.

What is S’well?

Chances are if you are out in public at a café or at your office or classroom, somebody is sitting there with a S’well bottle in front of them or in their bag. They kind of look like old milk bottles but are way cooler. They’re triple-walled and made of 18/8 stainless steel, making them rugged and durable. They can keep a cold beverage cold for 24 hours and a hot liquid stays hot for 12. You know. The ones with the neat screw top that absolutely everyone has and comes in a variety of funky designs and colours? Yeah, that’s the one. That’s S’well, and believe me, look in any store and you’ll find lots of counterfeits and pretenders, but none compare. And the S’well isn’t just a bottle, either. You can get it in a few sizes and models, including travelers, tumblers and roamers.

Introducing the S’ip by S’well

The S’ip is a slightly smaller, and more fun version of the S’well product. Think of it as the perfect on-the-go water bottle size. They come in 10 and 15oz sizes and are available in both bottle and 470ml travel mug formats.

What makes S’ip awesome

The S’ip is double-walled to eliminate condensation. That means your bottle stays dry and so do your hands and the inside of your bag. That insulation also means your cold drinks stay cold and your hot drinks stay hot, all day long. It is also vacuum-sealed to keep liquids fresh. They also promise the bottle and cup to be completely leak free. The S’ip is also made from 18/8 stainless steel so it is bound to be as solid and durable as its bigger s’ibling (oh geez, sorry, that just s’lipped in there. Ack. I can’t s’top).


Okay, all jokes aside, one of the things that will make the S’ip an essential accessory, is the number of designs and colours. S’well really designed this to be a fun, personal and portable water bottle that expresses who you are. From flowers and berries to solid colours and different characters, there is going to be a S’ip for you. I’ve seen one design I want already, and the size of the 15oz bottle is perfect for the holder on my mountain bike. It is also a more ideal size as a personal water bottle for kids than the S’well. So, which one is going to keep you hydrated this summer? Check out the S’ip, now available online at Best Buy.
