Please note, S'well product claims are based on tests using water. Other beverages may have varying results.

Each S’well product is a born multi-tasker—it’s really up to you how you want to integrate it into your lifestyle. Looking for inspiration? Below, we’ve outlined some of the important features of each of our products and a few of our favorite ways to use them.
The Original Bottle: Our classic S’well bottle is coveted for a reason: it combines beautiful design with superb quality, and can be used around the clock for all your hydration needs. We love using it for everything from ice water to white wine to green juice. It’ll keep your beverage cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12, and maintain a condensation-free exterior so you’ll never have to worry about it sweating in your bag or making water rings on your desk.
The Traveler: Consider the Traveler your go-anywhere go-to. Ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in your hand, this new wide mouth shape is optimal for coffee or smoothies on your morning commute, or for hydrating during hikes or workouts. Triple-walled insulation keeps beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12.
The Tumbler: Calling all entertainers: the Tumbler is about to be your new best friend for all your indoor and outdoor festivities. Available in two sizes (10oz and 18oz), the Tumbler keeps drinks hot or cold with a condensation-free grip, making it perfect for serving up small batch cocktails at home or sharing a bottle of rosé on the beach. It’s also great for keeping water cold through the night on your bedside table, or throughout the workday at your desk. Heading out? Our insulated stainless steel Tumbler Lid instantly transforms the Tumbler into the ultimate to-go cup. The lid pops on with ease and is straw-friendly.
The Roamer: Meet your new, on-the-go pitcher: the ready-for-anything Roamer. In 40oz and 64oz sizes, it’s ideal for sharing beverages with your whole crew. It will keep you hydrated on all your big adventures—think long hikes, road trips and camping excursions—and keep carbonated beverages (like beer) fresh and bubbly at tailgate parties or trips to the brewery.The Roamer keeps beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12, and maintains a condensation-free exterior. Its ergonomic handle and base ledge make for easy carrying and pouring. The handle of S’well Roamers is made of Tritan, which is BPA-free, and is not intended for removal.

We do not recommend putting your S’well in the refrigerator, freezer, or microwave, as it can damage the bottle and its vacuum seal. But not to worry—you probably won’t have to warm or cool your beverage. Thanks to S’well’s genius, triple-walled technology, your drink should stay cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12. (This pertains to our lidded products, such as our Original Bottle, Traveler and Roamer.)
Your S’well will certainly help your drink stay fresh all day long, but it’s not intended for long-term storage of liquids. Alcohol, some juices, and dairy-based beverages can spoil and may cause excessive pressure buildup in your bottle, which can lead to lid failure and injury. And remember, putting your S’well in the fridge can damage the vacuum seal that helps it maintain ideal temperatures.
S’well products are made of high-quality, 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. This material is highly resistant to rust and does not need a liner. S’well products are certified to meet all regulatory requirements by an independent and accredited testing facility. In addition, we are compliant with California Prop 65 regulations and Title 21 of the FDA Code of Federal Regulations. Your S’well is BPA-free, and provides a sustainable eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic water bottles.
Our bottles and beverage containers are thoughtfully designed in New York City and responsibly made in China.
As S'well evolves, we continue to find new ways to lessen our environmental footprint. In fact, we launched S'ip by S'well with minimal cardboard packaging and we’ve recently updated (and downsized) our S'well packaging to a slim belly band made of 100% recycled paper. These discreet belly bands contain all the information you'll need about your new product, including care and caution instructions. The band is secured around your S’well with a few glue dots; it should come off with ease. If any residue remains on the product, a little rubbing alcohol (91%) will help it come off without damaging the paint on your bottle. Anything stronger than that may compromise the finish.
Be assured that we have taken the necessary steps to ensure that our products are properly protected during shipping and that we will continue to uphold our standards of excellence with this packaging change.

Please Note: The S’well Commuter Lid was designed for convenience and ease of drinking; temperature retention may vary to that of the S’well Original Traveler Lid which is meant for insulation and storage.
Clean using warm, soapy water. Make sure to dry upside-down. Do not use with carbonated beverages.
For on-the-go sipping, just screw on the lid and use the tab on top to open and close. Be sure you make sure it’s tightly closed before throwing it into your bag! Do not use the sipping tab to twist the lid on and off!
Yes! The Commuter Lid was made to be used on all sizes of our S’well Traveler.
With all the hosting and toasting that comes with the holiday season, our new Cocktail Kit makes the perfect gift for your favorite aspiring mixologist, hostess or spirits connoisseur—or festive present to yourself. Measure and mix your drink of choice using our stainless steel jigger and shaker, then serve in our dinner-party-ready Tumblers.
Please note the S’well Cocktail Kit was designed for shaking and serving; temperature retention may vary.
The S'well Cocktail Kit comes with three components: the tumbler, the lid, and the cap. To avoid air pockets you must first remove the cap before placing the lid onto the tumbler. You'll want to shake with care and keep your index finger on cap of the shaker when shaking.
This product is not intended for use with carbonated beverages. S’well does not recommend using carbonated beverages with your Cocktail Kit.
The jigger holds the standard .75 ounces in its small end and 1.5 ounces in its large end. These measurements are when it is filled to the rim.
You can clean all the components of your Cocktail Kit with soapy warm water. Do not place it in the dishwasher.
Care & Caution
S'well products should be cleaned regularly—we recommend washing your bottle with warm water and soap after every use and drying and storing it with the top off. Our S’well Bottle Brush is a great tool to ensure your bottle stays thoroughly clean. Avoid submerging your bottle and cap in water for long periods of time as this will interfere with the vacuum seal. S'well bottles are NOT dishwasher safe! Running a S’well through the dishwasher can cause paint to chip and the vacuum seal to become ineffective. After washing your S'well, we recommend that you dry your beverage container by airing it out upside down and storing it with the lid off. This will help keep your S’well looking and smelling fresh.
The band is secured around your S’well with a few glue dots; it should come off with ease. If any residue remains on the product, a little rubbing alcohol (91%) will help it come off without damaging the paint on your bottle. Anything stronger than that may compromise the finish.
Chalk Ink Pens are a fun way to label and personalize your bottle. The ink won’t rub off on your hand when you take a drink, but can easily be removed with a damp cloth, sponge or a bit of dish cleanser. Chalk Ink pens are safe and toxin free, just like the rest of our products.
For questions or concerns regarding warranty and cleaning information for our Swarovski bottles, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
