    What water bottle are you guys using?

    I'm kinda of a hoarder when it comes to water bottles...

    I have Nalgene, Camelback, Hydroflask, Klean Kanteen and Tekeya.

    Lately I been using the GSI Microlite and its excellent and I just ordered a Zojirushi to compare.

    Looking for light weight, no sweat, no gulp/chug and retains ice.

    it’s just Pattern 58 (no SAS) mate.

    I have a bunch of those, a bunch of Aussie made bottles in the US style, a bunch of US bottles and the 2 litre square ones. About a dozen South African 2 litre bottles, some Nalgene bottles, some camelbak bottles (these are my most used as they live in my work sedan and on my desk) plus an assortment of odds and ends. Dehydration kills more here in Aus than about anything else ;)

    I pretty much just use the stainless steel Nalgene. The regular not the tapered. Since it has the Nalgene threads I have a water filter that screws on and I have found lots of nexting options. I just wish they made a lid that added the feature of a drinking straw like a water bladder.

    I pretty much have developed into a Camelback fan. Love the ease when driving or biking to use the flip up with the built in straw.

    I'm a fan of my HydroFlasks. Did just pick up two of the nalgene canteens to try out with my HPG packs though.

    I mostly use nalgene and klean kanteen. Been thinking of picking up one of the Heavy Cover ones though. Honestly for the last couple months I was backpacking every day and just used a couple Smart Water bottles. They were extremely light (a lot lighter than a nalgene) and I was able to screw on a water filter directly to the bottle; allowing me to fill up quick and keep moving (20+ miles a day takes a while lol).

    ah, i was going by the description when i bought it....lol

    I also have the Kleen Kanteens, and the Nalgene Tritan Canteens (love those - bombproof).

    Got a couple PLATATAC 1 liter flask bottles coming in from Australia, and am debating throwing down the coin on a Heavy Cover titanium canteen.

    Mate, I have maybe a dozen of those Platatac 1L bottles (they are actually ‘decor brand - what most school kids here had in their lunch box growing up ;) ). I really like them. Not as HD as other products but they pack in pouches well and do the job, they are also reasonably cheap !!

    Currently a cheap Ozark Trail (yeti ripoff) SS bottle. It's on the heavy side, but works good. I had a Hydroflask that I loved, but accidentally dropped one day and damaged it. Hydroflask offered to replace it, but I never got around to it.

    Like my Heavy Cover canteen for cooler days, when I don't want ice cold water.

    Other than that, nothing beats the Nalgene's for me. Also have their canteen, but disappointed at how thin they are. I've got several other water bottles, but can't recall off the top of my head.

    Heavy Cover canteen. Expensive and it can be a pain to pack in some backpack pockets but overall very versatile and all but bulletproof.

    I've spent a small fortune on water bottles. I always go back to the plastic Nalgene. I've used several stainless steel ones but the nalgene works better for my lifestyle. I don't like boiling water in my water bottle since I use it everywhere from my desk to hunts to hikes. I don't like having a sootee water bottle. I think it's like any other gear, you have to find what works for you. Lexan nalgenes aren't as fashionable around the conference room table, but they are cheap, light, and work great in most applications. I love the silos for hikes.

    Compared to a few other bottles...

    These are the bottles I use. I have two Yeti 36oz Ramblers, a Klean Kanteen 40oz, a Nalgene 32oz bottle (a little bigger actually) and a Nalgene 32oz canteen.

    If I'm throwing water into a day pack, I'll grab my Nalgene/s just depending on how long I'm going to be out. If I'm planning on making a fire I'll substitute one with my Klean. I love it, it's got dents from concrete and everything else and has never even hinted at a problem.

    When I work, or if I've got yard work or something to do, or just feel like being a delicate soul and putting on some pumpkin spice incense I'll grab my two Yeti's. I've had them keep ice for 10 hours in 95F heat and only realized it when I went to clean out the bottles a few hours after I got home into AC. They're lifesavers in a Texas summer.

    I have several Contiga brand bottles from Walmart that I use a daily around the house basis. I have a 1-liter plastic Nalgene in my kit that I use for camping and a US GI canteen set that I use for hiking. I'm also looking at getting the Seychelle Extreme water bottle.

    I use the Nalgene Oasis bottles a lot. I keep 2-3 of them in the freezer about a quarter full of ice to keep the water cold when I use it
