The new Stanley water bottle is the lighter, more compact alternative to their wildly popular tumbler

Introducing your new favorite water bottle.

We all know and love Stanley for its famous Quencher tumbler — and while the viral sensation is the brand's most recognizable product, it's not the only game in town. In fact, Stanley recently released what might well be the best insulated water bottle ever — the AeroLight IceFlow. It's more compact and more secure than the Quencher and has been making waves since its mid-September release. Our prediction? You're looking at the hot-ticket item of 2024.

Available in five sizes and eight colors, this newcomer delivers the best qualities of Stanley's famed tumbler, in a svelter, bottle form. And check out that clever angled mouth.

A solid water bottle is an everyday essential, and the AeroLight is built to impress. It's super-insulated, lightweight and innovative, and it definitely lives up to the hype. How insulated? It'll keep drinks cold for 8 hours and iced for 40 — that's right, more than a day and a half.

Its smart design is optimal for workouts, hiking and traveling. The Aerolight technology claims to be 33% lighter than standard stainless steel drinkware — making it an excellent option to take on your daily jogs or weekend treks. And the special leakproof, angled Fast Flow Lid makes for quick and easy pouring, drinking and cleaning. Also clever: The cap snaps onto the handle's integrated holder for storage when you drink.

And don't even get us started on the gorgeous color selection — 11 in all, including brights like Citron, Tigerlily and Polar, along with several of the usual suspects. The AeroLight IceFlow also comes in four sizes (16, 24, 36 and 50 oz.), though FYI: Only the 16 oz. and 24 oz. bottles are compatible with car cup holders.

Speaking of cars: Shoppers praise how convenient it is for daily commutes and road trips. As one chilled-out fan reported, "It kept ice in it for days."

Reviewers also appreciate that it's "very lightweight," while one Amazon shopper opined that it "works better for me than a regular Stanley cup" because they're "not a fan of straws."

Another Amazonian said that they prefer this bottle over the Quencher tumbler because "the slant makes it so much better to drink out of." They also noted that the Stanley tumbler can be a bit difficult to fill owing to its cap and aforementioned straw.

"It's super cute! It holds ice really well, and the handle is a nice addition for ease of carrying," said this schlepper, though they added that, because of its matte finish, the Aerolight tends to scuff easily. "Otherwise," they concluded, "it's a really great buy!"

Keeps drinks cold for 10 hours and iced for two days, thanks to its double-wall vacuum insulation. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!
