Welcome this water bottle into the fold: It collapses for packing, fills so you can easily sip


The Bubi Bottle comes in a variety of colors and folds down through its carbiner. You can also buy a “hatch” for it (inset at right), a sleeve that helps keep it cold.

Bubi Water Bottles provide a nifty new twist — or rather fold — on conservation-friendly water bottles.

When empty, Bubi Bottles can be rolled up and secured by their integrated D-ring carabiner, which attaches to belt loops or backpacks.

The bottles come in 14- and 22-ounce sizes and are microwave-, freezer- and dishwasher-safe. Optional accessories include a screw-on Sports/Sippy Lid, which can be switched out with the included water-tight lid, and a “hatch,” a slide-on sleeve that helps insulate hot or cold liquids. Bubi Bottles come in eight colors or clear.

The watertight bottles also can be used as dry bags to protect cellphones, matches, first-aid supplies or dry goods such as rice, oatmeal, tea or coffee.


A 14-ounce Bubi Water Bottle costs $16.99; 22-ounce model, $24.99; the Sports/Sippy screw cap, $5.99; the insulating hatch $7.99.
