    This is a Klean Kanteen I picked up at Powell's Books while on a trip to Oregon. I like it quite a lot and it follows me everywhere I go. I even drink from it at home.

    I have Klean Kanteen is several sizes and styles. I also have a glass LifeFactory bottle. I must say the Lifefactory Bottle may be my favorite. It's the one I use most often. There is just something about glass. Even though they say the SS bottles don't leach, it does have a metallic taste every now and again. I now only use the Klean Kanteen when doing something rugged.

    I own Klean Kanteens, Vapur bottles, GI Canteens, Nalgene Bottles, CamelBaks and probably a dozen other containers. They are all great, but the one that claims the EDC title is a cheap $5 steel bottle I found at the drug store 5 years ago.

    Its concave shape allowed for the perfect paracord wrap which added some insolation (for hands). My wife soon asked me to make her one. It has been a true EDC and it shows from all the dings and scrapes.

    I've been wanting a nicer water bottle but haven't researched one.

    For the moment I use reuse many water bottles from fuji or smart. Their bottles seem durable for reuse and a nice size.

    I have a very old Sigg water bottle that I've used since school (I'm 33 now), a bestek no spill mug/flask for tea and an old engraved silver hip flask for single malting with :)


    If I drive it fast enough it'll go in there, but that would be expensive

    Class 1 drivers do it longer and slower.

    Bad planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

    So can you throw it in your bag/seat and not worry about it or will it leak?

    I use a Klean Kanteen 16oz Thermos, 20oz Thermos and a 40oz standard water bottle.

    I use the two different sizes depending on what bag I am carrying. The pics shown below have the 16oz in the small bag and the 20oz in the large.
    I also use the flip top cap thing (I dont know the name) vs the standard cap you see on the large 40oz. The only reason is to reduce the size of the bottle so it fits into the bags I carry.

    I use the thermos version because cold stays cold for a long time.

    I only use insulated steel bottles pictured here with a tiffin lunch container.
    The left one is a regular thermos with cap cup which is necessary as half the year is below zero outside.

    The triple insulated Eco Vessel is the one I use the most, but when it's too heavy I go with the Nalgene. My 3L pressurize-able Geigerrig is only used icw. my backpack. I usually carry it empty though, as it takes up a lot of space in my already full pack. It's mostly a water-container for in the camp. I also got some cheap 0,5L Vapur bags recently, which are mainly intended as back-ups for the 3L bladder or as a light weight carry system for short hikes/drives.

    What's the purpose of being able to pressurize the bladder? I haven't seen anything like that before.

    I just saw one of these hydration bags at a local Marshall's. Its pressured so you can share water between teammates (spartan race approved), clean things off, give water to pets, or to just spray in your mouth as opposed to sucking. There's 2 chambers, one is for air and the other for water.

    It came with a book with free ski lift passes, or buy 1 get 1 passes.

    Apologies for the potato quality picture, but here's my new bottle. Klean Kanteen insulated 592 ml. Hoping I have better luck with this than the last bottle I edc'd, a Contigo insulated bottle that kept leaking. Can't seem to reliably edc a bottle if the water isn't cold so it seems like this is the biggest bottle I can carry.
