Nalgene Narrow Mouth Tritan 500ml
The perfect bottle!
Maybe it's shallow to be so pleased about what is ultimately a trivial possession, but the Tritan ends a long and slow search for the perfect water bottle. Lighweight yet sturdy, BPA free, dishwasher proof, a permanently attached yet unobtrusive cap, a perfect radius for drinking from, understated design, measurements on the side... three bought for the household in rapid succession as everyone wanted their own. I recommend stocking up before the designers decide to upgrade it for another season - there is nothing to improve here!

I got this to see how good its thermal insulation is. the man in the shop suggested that it was thermos-like. I was sceptical about that, and I was right to be. It has nowhere near the thermal insulation of the LifeVenture mug I have. If you're using this for hot liquids, you'll need to keep it well buried inside your bag or put it inside a separate insulating layer. Or aim to drink it all within the first hour or so of your day.
It's probably not fair to hold that against the product, though - more a case of dicey advice. As for the rest, the product is great. It's light, it's robust and it doesn't leak liquid into the inside of my bag!
