After researching and trying all of the options, I believe the best type of reusable bottle is a high quality stainless steel bottle with a wide mouth and decent cap.   Stainless steel doesn’t leach anything into your drink and is dishwasher safe.  If it has a wide opening you can easily keep it clean and insert ice.  Drinks taste good and stay cold;  there is no residual odor or stain inside from yesterdays sports drink.  It is also very durable and ultimately recyclable.     If you fill your cool stainless steel water bottle with tap water from home, you’ll be enjoying the most cost-effective and carbon-conscious drink under the sun.
