Not everyone likes the wide-mouth design of traditional Nalgene water bottles, which is one reason the company built the narrow-mouth Nalgene Tritan. Made of super-tough Eastman Tritan polycarbonate, the Tritan offers the same roomy interior as most Nalgenes, but with a narrow loop top that minimizes the chance of spills and a cap that never gets lost. In addition, the bottle’s BPA-free construction is impact-, odor-, and stain-resistant, helping it withstand a wide range of temperatures (from -40 to 212 degrees F) and last for years. Finally, the bottle includes printed graduations on the side, making it easy measure water quantities. Recommended for extreme adventures, the Tritan bottle is available in a variety of vivacious colors.

About Nalgene Outdoor
Based in Rochester, N.Y., Nalgene was founded in 1949 as a manufacturer of the first plastic pipette holder. The company soon expanded its product line to include state-of-the-art polyethylene labware under the Nalgene brand. By the 1970s, outdoor enthusiasts had discovered the taste and odor-resistant, leakproof, and rugged properties of Nalgene’s large selection of plastic containers. In response to this emerging demand, Nalgene created a Consumer Products Division. In the ensuing years, Nalgene created a full line of bottles that were perfect for storing everything from water to powdered drinks to pancake mix to shampoo.

    Pretty much bar-none in overall practicality – camping, daily use, Nalgene has nearly perfected the art of water-bottling, November 8, 2015

    If you’re looking at this, you probably already know what you’re doing. I’ve gone through a few different water bottles and this particular type is my favorite overall (though I am also partial to the small Nalgene bottles). No need for lengthy introductions, let’s jump straight to pros and cons.

    Pros:
    – Great capacity. I don’t think I’ve ever drank an entire bottle full in one day, though maybe I would if it were my only container

    – Narrow mouth is perfect. I actually feel like the wide mouth is the “standard” Nalgene look, and maybe the narrow mouth isn’t as aesthetic, but it sure works better in every way.

    – Tritan is great. It’s lightweight, nearly indestructible (and will probably never ever biodegrade, for better or worse) and doesn’t leave any plastic taste or BPA or anything.

    Cons:
    – It’s rather large and quite heavy with the water in it – so it’s possibly a little large for daily use, depending on your schedule and lifestyle, not much of a con to this particular bottle, just something to be aware of.

    Overall there’s hardly anything to complain about it, it’s near indestructible and just about everything you could need in a water bottle.

    (Note to Nalgene manufacturers: The one-quart bottles are pretty huge, and the one pint bottles are kinda small. A 1.5 pint bottle would be the absolute perfect size, you don’t need to make everything in even unit sizes!)

    I’m very bad when it comes to water bottles. I use them for a couple of weeks, but it gets longer and longer between true cleanings. Then it gets longer and longer between rinses. Then I have to throw them out because there’s stuff growing in them. And so, I found myself without any water bottles.

    I used to have some of the wide-mouthed Nalgene bottles (same size as these) but these are a big improvement over the wide-mouthed bottles for two reasons: (1) I spill these a lot less often, even if I’m doing something fairly active while I’m drinking from them and (2) these have many fewer ridges both around the rim and inside the cap, so they’re MUCH easier to clean. One downside is that you may have trouble fitting ice through the narrow opening, if you are interested in adding ice to your drinks.

    At any rate, these (I bought two of them) are a lovely color and a good size, they’re easy to carry and you can’t lose the caps, and they’re free of BPA. The label says “dishwasher safe” but I don’t think the inside of these would be cleaned very well in a dishwasher, so I am personally opting to wash mine by hand (and hopefully do a better job than with my last set of water bottles). I use them to carry iced herbal tea to work and I’m very happy with the purchase.

    Small Bottle Opening Produced Mold, June 19, 2016

    I bought this Nalgene bottle several years ago, and then over time had to abandon it. This is because the design — narrow bottle opening — made it very hard to clean and dry this bottle effectively. I usually used a bottle brush and then dried it upside down, but in the times when I didn’t have a bottle brush handy — it was impossible to clean the scummy stuff off the inside of the bottle.

    As a result, over time this bottle started to smell bad and the water tasted bad. So I had to get rid of it.

    I now use a large-mouth Nalgene bottle and find it doesn’t have this same “bottle neck” of problems.
