Innumerable points to the Bubi collapsible bottle for calling itself a Bubi and including the option of affixing nipples to its top. Obviously. But in addition to these superficial treats, the Bubi bottle also boasts some practical characteristics that differentiate it from a sea of other BPA-free liquid storage containers. Flexible, scrunchable water bottles exist, sure, but most of them are made out of what feels like a thick stack of Ziploc bags and they don't respond well to being filled with the very substances they are meant to hold. Which is to say that my mama gave me a bag-style water bottle for Christmas one year and about 2 ounces in to adding contents from the faucet the bag stopped inflating and the water shot out of its nozzle and slapped me in the face. I'm so sick of getting slapped in the face!

Bubis, though, are malleable and squishable bottles that do not succumb to sag and deflation. When released from their metal carabiners (one of my favorite words!), the high-grade silicone creations spring to perfectly-formed cylindrical life, ready to take on your favorite beverage. Click on the video above to watch the magic of...whatever force makes the Bubi unfurl so magically...happen.

Bubis accept both hot and cold liquids without compromise. They can also be frozen or microwaved and used as compresses or, furthering that line of creative thinking, called upon to store items such as laundry detergent, medicine, and matches--the latter because the bottles are waterproof and their lids provide a watertight seal. Bubis will even keep safe money and cell phones during water- or sweat-based activities. But the best thing to put in your Bubi? Come on, everyone together:


Bubi collapsible bottles are available in an assortment of colors and 14- and 22-ounce sizes.
