A nice replacement top for large mouth bottles. Provides a smaller drinking area which helps keep the fluid off your body when the ice shifts or you turn up the bottle too fast.
- Keeps ice in its place
- Smaller drinking surface is easier to drink from
- Well made
- Cap has a rubberized surface for easy spinning on/off
I've used Nalgene bottles for close to 20 years and periodically have to replace the tops due to dishwasher heater element mishaps or because the strap eventually wears out. I needed to replace a top recently and I saw this humangear top at one of our Army/Navy Surplus stores and decided to try it.
I have been really pleased with it. The Nalgene bottles are already a bit heavy and this lid doesn't really add much more to it than the normal top. But, you get the major benefit of a top that's easier to drink from and you don't have to worry about the ice shifting and dumping a load of water over your face/neck/clothes.
The cap does add a little height to the bottle but that hasn't been a problem for me.
Here's how the drinking spout looks.
Even though I use this on my Nalgene bottle, it fits several different wide mouth bottles. The packaging lists:
- Works with 32 oz. Nalgene wide-mouth bottles, Nalgene OTG bottles, all CamelBak bottles, Cyclone bottles and other wide-mouth options
Update 1/15: While using this top during my four-day Colorado Trail backpacking trip this past summer, I discovered the spout fits perfectly with my Steripen water purifier, eliminating the need to carry the Nalgene wide mouth adapter.
