These things are impossible to find :O
I can't find this particular o-ring size. Do you think 2mm tickness could work? What about 5mm? I also found some 54, 53 and 51 diameter rings. Would any of them be a better fit than 52mm?
I think I finally have my water bottle EDC figured out. I drink a lot of water while I am in my car all day long driving from appointment to appointment. One handed operation is a must, so the Camelbak Podium bottle works very well. The recently purchased Hydroflask 64 oz insulated bottle holds plenty of water to refill the Podium. The Hydroflask also comes in handy for bringing home brew from my favorite brew pubs.
Here is my almost complete Nalgene collection. I have one more orange one. These are made in my city and they're indestructible and only run $10 for the big ones and $10 for the pair of smaller ones.
How can you go wrong?
How do you like the Glow in the Dark Nalgene? I was thinking about picking one up for camping.
The HumanGear caps are awesome for the Nalgene's.
Works great on Camelbacks too. Those bite valves that come standard are ridiculously temp. sensitive during the hotter months of the year.
Agreed...in retrospect, the Nalgene part of the quote was narrow-minded...not intentional, those were just the pics I was looking at....
I thought for awhile it was silly to buy lids...but after getting them on Amazon....we love them. And, they are dishwasher safe.
That orange Nalgene is awesome. It's the most leak proof bottle I've found even if it's upside down in your pack.
I took mine camping not too long after I got it, It was in the sun for an hour or two when I was swimming in the lake and the shiny finish on the bottle became matted and hazy. I called Nalgene and they sent me a new one. Nothing is wrong with the bottle and I still use it. I just wanted to let them know it had occurred. Great company with Great Customer Service.
Brilliant actually, very bright for several hours
I imagine 2mm would be a little thin, but 5mm would probably work. The 52mm is nice and snug - you don't want it lose so I wouldn't go bigger. Essentially it's working as a bung to prevent any trickle getting back down the threads.
L-R: SS Nalgene, Liberty Bottleworks 32 oz, Nalgene, Brunton 0.6L
One or 2 of these is always nearby.
Here's the ultimate question:
Nalgene Standard (stainless steel) or Klean Kanteen (wide opening)?
Mine is an 18oz/500ml Aladdin Revive & Refresh. I needed a water bottle that day so asked my Mum to pick one up for me. She chose this. Fortunately she picked well and this has been serving me 3 litres of water a day for a few years now. It's not perfect. The plastic is sensitive to scratches and both the narrow and wide lid are opened by twisting the same way, so you can sometimes open the main bit when you just want the top, narrow, drinking bit to open. But aside from that it's been a loyal servant.
Living the dream.
I have the CapCap, but I can't find the bottle
If you don't mind the narrowed bottom version there are 2 available on eBay.
Also my capcap isn't watertight on the steel Nalgene
I can't move away from Nalgene bottles they're just too simple and light weight although they sweat a lot when a cold bev is applied so I found several of these dicontinued jet boil wraps that work perfect on a hot day. They're cheap too! The GITD ones rock gotta get me one.
