Summary

Excellent steel used in excellent construction of a super durable water bottle! Growlers are 64 ounces too i.e. lots of water for the trail and growler of micro brew for after!!

Pros

  • bomb proof construction
  • 64 oz capacity
  • can be used as kettle over open flame
  • fits most stoves wonderfully
  • loop cap takes a carabiner
  • pump filter compatible mouth

Cons

  • too big for most bottle pockets
  • too big for car cup holder

If, after shelter, water is the most important thing for sustaining life, than I want my water container to be unbreakable. The Klean Kanteens are pretty much unbreakable. For this reason we like to carry the standard water reservoir, perhaps only filled with 35-70 ounces of water, then we take Klean Kanteens for back up. Two is one and 1 is none, right?

Every major filter that we have tried screws perfectly to the mouth of the Wide Mouth Klean Kanteen 64oz. This makes for less hassle when pumping water from an awkward position, which is to say, every position one is in while pumping water through a filter.

The ability to hang the Kanteen over the fire using a coat hanger or a piece of wire, allowing us to boil 64 ounces of water at once, without using any of our precious fuel, is amazing. Just imagine making a huge pot of pine needle tea for everybody at the shelter on a rainy night.

Now to risk redundancy: Our Klean Kanteens are among the very few items for "Adventure Use" that we allow ourselves to use on a daily basis! Hard shells, trekking socks, day packs, most headlamps, and all sporks are far too delicate and expensive to use on a daily basis. Not so with the Klean Kanteens.  We beat these things up all day, literally everyday, and no worries, they keep on keeping awesome!

Klean Kanteen created the 64oz Klean Kanteen Wide for two simple reasons: they wanted a mammoth, half gallon bottle for transporting and storing water and other drinks. Think of it as a filling station that's easy to handle and pour from. On river trips, a sailboat, an all-day picnic or even car camping, use your 64oz Klean Kanteen Wide instead of dealing with big, unwieldy plastic jugs. Like every Klean Kanteen the 64oz wide-mouth bottle is made from high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel that's totally free of BPA and other toxins. Because stainless steel itself is safe, we don't need to coat the inside of the bottle with a plastic or epoxy lining, which is one of the main differences between a stainless steel Klean Kanteen and aluminum bottles. Food-grade stainless steel is used in the brewing, food and winemaking industries too. It's the material of choice because it doesn't retain or impart flavors. No matter how many times you refill it, no matter what you put into it, your Klean Kanteen Wide will keep your drinks fresh, crisp and clean tasting. The extra wide opening is more than 2 inches in diameter for quick filling, pouring and cleaning, and the universal thread design fits with standard backcountry water filters. It comes with a Stainless Loop Cap that clips onto a Kanteen S-Biner. Or you can opt for the stylish and functional Flip D-Ring Cap, available as an accessory. Both caps are 100% stainless steel on the inside, so your drinks never touch plastic. In fact, the only plastic on the Klean Kanteen Wide is on the outside of the cap; and of course it's BPA-free polypropylene (pp#5).
