Nice deal, might have to wonder down to my local Big Lots and see if they got any.

Just gotta watch out, if its chinese made, they took out the BPA and replaced it with god knows what. j/k

But on a seriously, I might go look since I need to replace my old water bottles with my camping and backpacking gear.

Im ignorant....what is the advantage of these bottles?
I see that they are popular.....I assume they are made of some kind of material that resists leaching into the contents.
Is that the draw to these?

They are pretty tough. I can't comment on the integrity of those posted, but the real brand are damn strong.

I worked in a sporting goods store and was having a hard time convincing people to spend 8-9 dollars on a water bottle.

Got one to use as a "test" to show people the strength.

I would fill it full, take it out in the parking lot and throw it as high as I could in the air. Sucker would just bounce.

I would then dump out half the water, and throw it as hard as I could on the pavement. No problems ever.

+ They fit onto MSR water filters without any adapter.

The genuine Nalgene are about $9 new retail, but........

+1 They are tough

+1 They fit the quality water filters

and they do not leak

ETA I learned about Nalgene from Arfcom and I'm so addicted now

they are tough

i once drove over a partially filled one in my driveway with a full size pickup. the bottle got a bit of a discolored "mark' or line, kinda like when you bend plastic or something, but it did not break and doesnt leak. was good to go afterward.

I got some genuine Nalgenes at Bog Lots this summer for $2 each. 650ml, came full of Crystal Light lemonade packages. They have a kind of odd top, a flip-up drinking spout kind of thing, which does not stay closed if you drop the bottle. Still s great deal for two samolians.

Good general usage water container.

A lot of portable filters and accessories mate up to Nalgene threads.

Did they have any other size Nalgene bottles there ?

Bio degradable? Environmentally friendly?

I have Nalgene bottles that are well over 10 years old that have been all over the mountains and woods with me. Never had one break. My MSR water filter threads into the Nalgene bottles as well.

Yes, but I consider everything in existence biodegradable, including the sun.

All matter "degrades" on a large enough time scale.
