This is the first of hopefully many gear reviews, so I thought I’d keep it relatively simple. The Nalgene bottle pictured here is one of my favorites! I got this particular one at REI several years ago and it is my go-to everytime. I love the size of it. It holds 16 ounces and is slender enough to be comfortable in my hand (about like a soda can, but a little taller). It also easily fits into the side pouches on my backpack and in the cupholders in my truck. Some of the other sizes can be too big and cumbersome.
Another feature I like about this particular bottle is the screw top. I know it’s not going to leak through any straw or bite valve. It’s easy to clean for that very same reason… no straws or intricate bite valves to worry about. I sometimes even shake up my protein drinks in here when I’m running out the door in the mornings. The loop connecting the top to the base is perfect for attaching to backpacks or belt loops as well.
Overall, this is a great product. I actually own 3 of these so that I can continuously keep them in rotation. I don’t often find this exact size or screw top option anymore, so when I do I try to snatch them up.
