    My old faithful 500ml Camelbak. I have several other bottles, but this is my favorite. Easy to use, a convenient size and it fits in the bottle holder on my bike.

    After 6 years of amazing service, I've let my Camelbak Better Bottle (16 ounce) retire. It's since been replaced with a Contigo SS insulated (22 ounce) one. :)

    xD No pictures now 'cause I'm lazy. :p Maybe later.

    I just bought a 20oz insulated Klean Kanteen. Gonna throw a Capcap on it and hope it will be perfect for my needs :D

    Otherwise I use a 32oz glow in the dark Nalgene with the same cap.

    Nothing special just my Camel Bak .75L gray water bottle. Been using that since November of last year. Before that was my blue 40oz Kleen Kanteen.

    I find the camel backs awful the drink valve is a mould trap even with regular careful cleaning

    I'll take pictures later, but I switch between a Nalgene 32oz narrow mouth and a Nalgene 32oz wide mouth with CapCap.

    Nothing fancy, but nothing to break, either. (well, technically, you could, but at that point you just have to be trying)

    I love my insulated Klean Kanteen. The Cap Cap doesn't seal as well as the OEM cap on the KK's though, so watch it if you carry it in your pack.

    I always loved those steel collapsible cups. I had a plastic one as a kid but haven't gotten a steel one just yet.

    Aint it typical? Just two days after I posted that the camelbak was my favorite, my kid destroyed the cap... From now on I'll juse my 1000ml/32oz Nalgene bottle or my 650ml Lifeventure bottle. Both with wide mouth.

    I just found that out! :oops:

    Any ideas on tweaks for stopping the leak? I was thinking a silicon ring might work.

    Someone posted a fix that involved boiling water somehow - you might want to try browsing the forum and see what you find.

    Found it - well, found a response to the post I was thinking of:

    Buzzbait's Guide to Water Bottles

    So, the boil and freeze method worked for one person, but not another.

    It only holds ten ounce, but it doesn't take up a whole lot a space neither.
