User Review: Brunton Aluminum Water Bottle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $4
Lighter and more durable than a Nalgene, as well as taste free, this attractively finished water bottle is a better insulator than my plastic bottles and includes a carabiner for attaching to packs or straps. I highly recommend this bottle as an alternative to the run of the mill 1 liter bottles you can get anywhere, but with the standardized opening to do anything they can do. Highly recommended.
- Impeccable quality, finish, and aesthetics
- lightweight and durable
- equipped with a carabiner for easy attachment
- standardized opening and cap allows for use of filters
- dents easily
- no internal markers for measurement
It's a water bottle, so not much else to say that hasn't been said above. While it does dent, the aluminum will not crack on impact like a plastic bottle.
The attractive finish matches well with hardware for climbing, like carabiners, cams, etc. At 5.8 ounces, it is plenty light and has an epoxy coating on the inside that can handle just about any form of liquid, even acidic juices or alcohol.
The Brunton bottle can take all of the accessories that are compatible with a Nalgene except for a standard Nalgene splashguard. /p>
