Agreed. And the polycarbonate hard plastic ones are rumored to break down and cause cancer.

ddml,

just in case you change your mind about wanting to get date-raped by the chinese, you could create a water bottle made entirely out of aqua dots:

Actually, I just buy expensive bottled water and reuse the bottles. Because I'm cheap like that.

But whatever, my Voss bottle gets all the ladies.

I had heard that the compound they use to make Nalgenes has adverse effects to it (sterility or cancer or somesuch...)

anybody know if there's any truth to that or is that just some bull from a chain email my mom sent me?

also, this thread is surprisingly hilarious

that story went around a few months back. i'm not sure how much veracity it has. but in the cases where the chemicals leeched into the water, it was from heated sources. so don't leave your nalgene out in the sun all day in hot weather. don't toss it in the dish washer with hot water. don't microwave it... shit like that

I would pull these two off no problem.

The second one would get a paint job though...

i'm really digging either the canteen steez or the bota steez.

it would go great with a leather wallet + lanyard + denim.

also thought about carrying around a flask...

after much consideration i think (classic) sigg is the way to go, with all the accoutrements (meaning the little jacket thingy with clip), just wondering if getting a black one would not be too contrary to the notion of refreshing oneself with life-giving stuffs
