My favorite choice of bottle. Nalgene issued BPA-free bottles in 2009, if I am not mistaken. Instead of the good old Lexan, the bottles are made of Tritan. Same bomb proof quality, even better. When used with splash guards, the flow is better manageable.

Some other brands have tried to duplicate them, but king of the hill stands its ground firm. Nalgene cannot be beaten. It's no more made out of Lexan, but Tritan, a better BPA-free material.

They're heavy, but you cannot destroy them. Freeze it, drop it, bang it, put boiling water in it, etc., etc., etc. It keeps on going. A few things I like to do with them are: fill them about 90% full and freeze it so you have a great cold drink at lunch on the trail; put boiling water in it and use it as a foot-warmer when winter camping; put boiling water in it in the morning and have a hot drink at lunch-time; use an old one as a waterproof first aid or repair kit. When it gets beat so ugly; retire it to your workshop for storing screws, etc. and buy a new one for the trail.

Indestructible, I have had mine close to 20 years. I really like the measurements on the side that make dispensing water for cooking very easy. 

The only negative is that I love the crystal light lemonade mixes and I can't get the lemon smell out of the plastic.

Simply put Lexan, unbreakable!! I have 4 of these and plan to get more for hiking with larger groups. Stop by a creek, use the water filter and fill up these suckers. Very light, very strong, cap is attached and cannot come off. Just a perfect water bottle.

Price Paid: $7

I think they are great bottles, but, what about this article?
