best water bottle for hiking

Posted Oct 20 2009 10:03pm

When I gave up on carrying a water filter, I gave up on Nalgene wide mouth bottles.

In recent years I’ve simply carried a soft drink bottle. It’s fantastically reliable and fits more easily into my pack pocket than a Nalgene.

Crow recommends …

water … a 20 ounce “Vitamin Water” bottle. I wanted a wide mouth bottle because it’s easier to add drink powders to them. …

I have been using the same bottle for years. That’s the thing about “single use” plastic bottles, I don’t care how many years I have carried the same bottle, nor how many times I have dropped it, nor how rough its life has been. I have never, ever had a “single use” plastic bottle fail me.

They are light, dependable, and cheap. “Single use” plastic bottles are what I use for all my water carrying needs.

Good idea. I think I’ll buy my first and last bottle of Vitamin Water.

Needless to say, Crow has no time for water bladders.
