Nalgene’s newest leak-proof loop-top swings open wide to reveal a contoured, high-low drinking spout that’s easy to fill at the fountain or sink. One-handed push button for easy open/close; locking bail for ultimate insurance against leaks.

It is the eveloution of the On The Go (OTG) water bottle. The Nalegene On The Fly (OTF) fits in a cup holder and a bike’s bottle cage. The BPA-free Tritan material lets you taste what is in your bottle. And now, with the locking bale, the bottle is leakproof.

    So I got this water bottle back in March and I really like everything about it EXCEPT that the little rubber piece in the flip cap that keeps it sealed so that it won’t leak got really dirty looking within just a couple months of having it. Now only 7 months later it looks really gross and no amount of cleaning or scrubbing can get it clean.

    Small or large openings and one handed open or close, fits in most cupholders and your bike cage too, July 17, 2014

    This review is from: Nalgene On The Fly Water Bottle (Sports)
    My wife and I are planning a trip to a developing country and we wanted a capability to purify the local water such that we could consume it and not become ill. We came across the SteriPen Handheld UV Water Purifier (as sold in a bundle at a popular club warehouse store) and so we wanted a water bottle with a narrow neck in order to fit tightly against the SteriPen. (The SteriPen folks advise you to stir the water or even invert the bottle during the purification process.) I initially bought this bottle but was concerned about it’s somewhat “gimmicky” drinking spout and latch. So I also bought the much simpler NALGENE Tritan 1-Pint Narrow Mouth BPA-Free Water Bottle. Comparing the two bottles:

    – the 1-pint is stout and doesn’t fit in some cupholders, the OTF bottle is taller and holds more water
    – the 1-pint has white volume markings which are easy to read, but the OTF markings are molded in and much harder to read
    – the 1-pint requires two hands to open and close the lid (twist on and off), the OTF bottle needs only one hand but requires a multi-step process (metal ring and plastic button)
    – the 1-pint has a single 30mm opening, the OTF bottle has a separate screw-off lid with a 53mm opening (which allows you to easily add ice cubes or clean the interior). The separate lid has a 22mm opening in the spout for drinking.
    – the SteriPen interfaces to the 1-pint’s 30mm opening on the plastic body, but on the OTF bottle’s 22mm opening the interface is to the rubber
    – both bottles can be secured to hang from a strap, but the OTF bottle’s lid hinge seems more substantial than the 1-pint’s flexible cap retainer strap

    In the end, I prefer the OTF bottle, but my wife prefers the 1-pint because it is slightly more compact, is less gimmicky, and is somewhat less expensive. She is also concerned that something on the OTF bottle will eventually break. I’ll update this review after I gain some “field experience” with both bottles.

    UPDATE Aug 13 2014: after traveling to Machu Picchu and the Amazon in Peru with this water bottle, I am convinced I made the right choice:

    – The slim bottle is an easy fit in the side pockets of my Pacsafe Luggage Metrosafe 300 Gii Laptop Bag
    – one handed opening is easy
    – one handed closing is possible, but a lot easier if the bottle is pushed against something solid (such as a tabletop, your knee, stomach, or crook of your other arm)
    – I found it easiest and most convenient to drink with the spout cover on one side, in my case, over my right cheek. This orients the long axis of the elliptical spout opening sideways in order to line up with your mouth, and the cover will not flip down as you are drinking
    – the small drinking spout worked perfectly with our SteriPen Traveler Retail Pack
    – The taller size of this bottle means it did not fit under the faucet of some public sinks. In those cases, my wife’s shorter NALGENE Tritan 1-Pint Narrow Mouth BPA-Free Water Bottle was needed to transfer water from the faucet to my OTF bottle.
    – the wide mouth of this bottle makes it easy to add ice or to clean

    I still prefer this OTF bottle to my wife’s 1-pint narrow mouth screw top bottle, and am happy with my purchase.

    One out of two turned moldy, October 29, 2015

    I purchased two of these (one for my husband and one for myself) to take with us on walks and just to have around the house and I’m a little disappointed. I searched for a long time trying to find a water bottle without the spout you pull up or the one you have to bite and settled on this version because of the reviews. They do work and seal well (no leaks even when upside down in a backpack or diaper bag). However my bottle top has molded! I saw the review where the person complained about their top molding and I thought “no way that person regularly washed that bottle” but I’m no longer feeling that way. I have the beet red version and my husband has the blue and even with regular washing (by hand and dishwasher) his still looks the same and my cap has developed ridiculous mold that no amount of scrubbing/bottle brushes/soaking/etc. will get rid of. The bottles perform well but I am definitely giving them only three stars because of the mold problem. I’ve included a picture so you can see what I’m talking about (it’s after being in the dishwasher, hand scrubbing, and letting it soak). Maybe it’s the color I chose (I sometimes use my husband’s and it’s never gotten moldy so it can’t just be me lol)?
