This $30 tumbler costs less than a Stanley, but it keeps drinks colder for longer

The Stanley Quencher H2.O Flowstate Tumbler is the most viral water bottle of 2024, especially thanks to its huge range of colors. It's constantly selling out, and fans can't stop raving about how beautiful and trendy it looks while keeping their beverages cold. Still, many people aren’t willing to shell out $45 (or more) for the popular cup. You may not have to: There's an alternative on Amazon that has a similar look, and it's $15 less.

The 40-ounce tumbler comes in 29 colors, from plain black to pastel mint.

The Simple Modern 40-ounce Trek Tumbler is leak-resistant and dishwasher-safe. What makes this one special, though, is its double-walled insulation, which keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours. For reference, the Stanley Quencher keeps drinks cold for up to 11 hours.

Simple Modern's tumbler is made of premium 18/8 stainless steel and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. It also has an ergonomic handle that makes it easier to hold, an interior copper coating and a spill-proof lid. Yes, I said spill-proof — this wallet-friendly alternative leaks a whole lot less than the Stanley.

With over 24,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, the tumbler is a home run with shoppers. Many reviewers rave about how much better it is than the Stanley.

"It literally works better than my Yeti, my Stanley and my Brümate," one five-star reviewer wrote. "Again, I'm amazed. I love the sleek look, the feel of the handle, how slim and lightweight it is."

"Better than any Stanley out there," shared another impressed reviewer. "You knock a Stanley over and it's a river of water in like two seconds," the shopper wrote. "Not this cup."

One more shopper said the ice in her Simple Modern tumbler was "still there at the end of a 10-hour day. It's also pretty spill-proof. Perfect for healthcare workers and just busy people who can't fill up their water bottle every hour."

Of course, a few fans say there's room for improvement. "I wish there was a rubber bottom, and I've noticed if not full then it tends to be a little unstable if bumped," said one. "The rubber around the straw does not leak, however, the straw itself does."

Having a hard time choosing a color? This one includes a range of pretty pastels for spring.
