Searching for the right products to take on an outdoor excursion can be quite the task. There are many qualities that a product must have in order for it to pass the standards that I require of outdoor equipment. The peice of equipment must be durable, easy to use and fit form and function. While in the past I had gone on camping trips with the standard water bottle, I soon realized that there was another alternative that was superior. I picked up my first Nalagene bottle over a few weeks ago and have been using it daily ever since. On camping trips it provides storage for a good ammount of water, the clip on the side it durable as is the shell and the wide mouth allow for easy access to filling it up from sources of water and make cleaning water a breeze. I highly reccommend this product.
