We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite products that last and last. Here are the dependable results:

2. A Hydro Flask water bottle that is virtually drop-proof.

"I've had mine for three years and it's amazing. I've dropped it more times than I can count and it's taken all of the falls. It's a life saver for hikes, hot summers, and gym sessions, and it keeps your drink cold for hours on end. Worth every penny." —Darth Fayderr

Get it from Amazon for $27.95.


5. A Conair Infiniti hair dryer that'll stay strong even as horrible hair trends fade away.

"I think I got it sometime in high school (I graduated in 2005). I use it every single day and it works perfectly." —Ashley L. Maidon, Facebook

Get it from Amazon for $30.

6. L.L. Bean Bean Boots, which sell out every 👏 year 👏.

"They have gotten me through so many rough winters. They are well lined — sturdy, dry, and cozy as well. They even have a 100% satisfaction guarantee; if they start weraing out they will either repair or replace them [for free!]. I've had my current pair for six years and I wouldn't want to face a winter without them." —Emersonian

Get them from L. L. Bean for $119.


8. A Stitch and Rivet wallet or tote you can invest in.

"I've beat the hell out of a giant tote bag made by them for well over two years and it is taking the abuse like a champ. My leather wallet from there is over three years old and is in amazing condition." —Melissa Esposito, Facebook

"My husband spilled paint thinner on my waxed canvas tote, and I was convinced it was ruined. But I contacted the maker, Katie Stack, and she told me to dunk it in soapy water and wash it out. Then she treated it to a complimentary "spa day" to reapply the wax. It's now almost four years old and still going strong!" —Elizabeth Arend, Facebook

Get the tote for $182 and the wallet for $68.

9. A Magic Bullet that answers the question "Will it blend?" with a resounding yes.

"My magic bullet was definitely worth the investment. I've had that set a good long while and I haven't even had to replace the rubber band things that go around the rim yet." —Tyler Bond, Facebook

Get it from Amazon for $37.99.


12. A pair of Adidas Adilette Slide Sandals, which are a classic for a reason.

Get them from Amazon for $30.

13. A pair of Frye boots you can wear with anything.

"Any pair of Frye shoes. If you take care of them; polish, protect, give love, then they will last forever. Spend the extra money; buy the well made shoes. Price per wear people, price per wear." —Jenny B.

15. A set of Tupperware you and your neighbors will pass back and forth for years.

"Real actual name brand Tupperware. It comes with a lifetime warranty and I still have stuff that my mom bought in the '70s. Plus everyone knows someone that has the same big ass bowl that they break out at picnics. It’s usually filled with some kind of salad." —C4C3

Get this set from Amazon for $21.99.

17. A dog toy that won't be destroyed by even the friskiest pup.

"Bought the Zogoflex Hurley in 2005 when I had a small dog named Maddie and this toy became her new favorite thing. Fast forward to 2016, Maddie had buried it in our yard and years later my other dog, Emmie, found it!! Now it is Emmie’s favorite toy and she has yet to destroy it. And this is the same dog who has chewed holes in the wall."

Get them from Amazon for $119.99.


24. American Eagle High Rise Jeggings you can basically live in.


"I've owned the same four pairs for years and they've held up so well. They don't feel like thin, crappy jeggings either. Every other brand has worn out in the knees or upper inner thigh, even Levi's." —Angelika Roswell, Facebook

Get them from American Eagle for $54.95.

25. A $5 eyeshadow primer that lasts...and lasts...and lasts.

"Wet 'n' Wild eyeshadow primer! You only have to use an amount the size of the tip of a bobby pin for both eyes and it stays on until you take it off with makeup remover! The best part is it's cruelty-free and $5!" —Kasidy O.

Get it from Walgreens for $4.99.

26. A pair of headphones that'll keep your co-workers' voices muffled.
