Nalgene water bottle

1 Mins read

Everyone needs to drink more water. Scratch that, everyone needs to drink more water that doesn’t slowly kill you by leaching endocrine disruptors into your body… Sorry for the Debbie Downer comment.

In all seriousness, get yourself a Nalgene water bottle that is free of hormone ravaging BPA (Bisphenol A) but also can stand up to almost any bumps and scratches. Seriously, a genuine Nalgene bottle is REALLY difficult to break. I’ve seen it, but you would have to be doing some pretty crazy stuff with it to have that happen.

I’ve had the same one since college, and believe me, it saw some times. I once dropped it off a canoe onto some rocks and it barely showed scratch. The one thing to keep in mind is that these are NOT for insulating liquids. They are simply for carrying water (or gin and juice) and making sure it doesn’t leak everywhere all over your walkman (err…  iPod? Spotify playlist?). You get the point. If you want something to act like a thermos, buy one of these glorious products.

These bottles follow one of the main “buy it for life” (BIFL) principles:  They are simple! Take a look at the construction. There are barely any moving parts aside from a simple screw-top lid and bag loop. That’s what make these things stand up to the elements and why we have given it our BIFL certification. Nalgene bottles are also really easy to clean due to their simplicity and can be frozen overnight if you want to have some super cold water on a trip later the next day.

One last thing about Nalgene bottles is that they are recyclable so your impact on the environment over the long term is even less.
