Best water bottle for school?

Dull thread, sorry. DD has gone through two water bottles in a term - the school branded one's lid fell apart which is apparently a common problem with them and her Camelbak bottle is leaking. Any suggestions for a water bottle that won't leak or fall apart?

As a teacher - no metal please - they are so disruptive, make a load of noise when they have a sip in the middle of a lesson, make a horrendous noise when dropped which seems to happen so much! I use Hydr8mate ones, no issues with leakage.

Amazon one has a nifty lock that completely stops leaks

Klean Kanteen ones with a sport top are ace! (Get the stainless steel finish as the paint colours chip). I've had ours for 6 years.

The sistema ones are good, the only issue is that 9 out of 10 children seem to use them so they can you really do need to make sure yours are labelled.

We also had the same issue as a pp with some fake ones from amazon, I wouldn't have seen it mind but the lids don't fit on the regular ones so I'm always scrabbling around for one that fits.
