Owala vs Stanley

Which one is better?
Owala+verse+Stanley
Owala verse Stanley

A lot of people ask which one is better, Owala or Stanley? The Owala is a lightweight, cheap, and portable water bottle. Although many people like Stanley, the Owala that came out in 2020 is taking a lead in water bottles. The Stanley is a good product but they are very big, not spill proof and not very convenient. Stanley came out in 1913 and recently has been making a comeback.

When you put a Stanley and Owala side by side there is a big size difference. A basic Stanley is a lot bigger than the Owala. The Owala comes in 19, 24, 25, 32 and 40 ounces and the Stanley comes in 14, 20, 30, and 40 ounces. A lot of people like that you can have options with the size but when it comes to convenience, spilling, and portability Owala wins. That ´ s why a lot of people prefer Owala over Stanley. Cleaning wise Stanley is a lot easier to clean because the straw easily comes out whereas the Owala straw is built into the water bottle to create two ways to drink, so it makes it harder to clean. Owala does have a tumbler a lot like the Stanley but there is no hole where the straw comes out so it is still leak proof. The price is a little bit of a difference. The Owala price range is from 15-40 dollars while the Stanley price range is  30-60 dollars. Arguments from Owala fans say ” The Free Sip Owala is lightweight compared to the Stanley, that is one more reason that gets me to drink water.¨ Arguments from Stanley’s side say ¨The Stanley has a big array of colors and the ability to keep beverages warm or cold for long periods of time.¨

Back in 1913 William Stanley Jr. wanted a water bottle that stayed either hot or cold all day.  William made the logo a bear because when they were first made, people that took them in the woods used to say bears would appear while they were out there. The crown and wings were added to the bear to give a nod to the creator, William Stanley Jr. To go into the newer history of Owala, it was created by Steve Sorensen. Who is also the owner of the BlenderBottle. Steve saw that many people were using their BlenderBottle as an everyday water bottle instead of a workout bottle so he got to work and decided to make a water bottle intended for everyday use. A water bottle that was easy to fill up, carry around and just use. The company only made this design four years ago so they still have a lot of time to decide what to improve or invent.

On the terms of accessibility they are both pretty accessible, except Stanley has trouble keeping new items in stock. Every time Stanley drops in Target there is a raid in Target because people want the newly invited designs. The new Valentines Stanley came out December 31st, 2023, and they are already sold out everywhere. Owala water bottles are also sold out very often because they are so new and convenient.

If you’ve missed out on the Stanley limited edition throw downs…check this video out! The Stanley even survived a burning car, and had ICE left in the cup!
