how are they?
I use a nalgene .
at that girl
university bookstore carries them. i'm probably going to pick one up before i leave town at the end of may.
they match my trendy macbook pro and silver ipod classic.
I looked at them, but the lips were way small and I thought cleaning it would suck.
I own two nalgene bottles, never once cleaned t hem
They are good but honestly I prefer my nalgenes. Two reasons.. you need to buy the spout adaptor or deal with unscrewing the top every time you want to sip... and they are much less convinient to clean... And the real reason is that I toss my shit around and my Sigg would be all dented to fucking hell and back while my nalgenes still look like new.
I lost my Nalgene...so now I use some cheap bottle I got here at the univ, says "Stay in the BLUE" - AKA don't drink above .08 BAC, lol
OMG... you know i didn't know till you told me... thank goodness i made a thread about it
nalgenes had to be recalled in canada because they contain a banned chemical (bisphenol a) that leaches into the water.
32oz nalgene here.
screw top, wide mouth.
fuck sippy tops, am i six?
ps the one on the right is the kind with the toxic plastic.
yeah i was reading today that they have been pulled off the shelves here in the US too. I have a camelbak with a bite vavle on it that I really like. I'm going to go check to make sure that it's not the same kind of plastic used in the recalled nalgenes
yeah the chemical makes the plastic hard and clear, so camel packs should be safe im guessing
actually, no, camelbak's site confirms that they were also using polycarbonate with BPA's. Their new ones will be made of some tritan material, like the nalgene bottles.
EDIT: oops. you thought I was talking about camelbak hydration systems...you are correct - those are fine.
I was talking about this (which I own and will probably discard):
lol this just popped up on Yahoo news
nalgen cause cauncer bros
I'm gonna die?
I've got two 32oz and one 48oz Nalgene's for my water everyday... I had a smaller one but it cracked a week ago. Of course all the faggot stores in Canada have pulled them off the shelves, so I bought a Camelbak off Ebay that I'm waiting for to arrive.
All the BPA hype is bullshit
We all are .
i have a northface water bottle like the sigg one that i got for free... it's alright, but the top leaks... maybe the sigg ones are better?
I've been looking at getting a sigg or other metal bottle to try and cut down on my plastic water bottle usage.
Help the environment and more importantly help my bank account.
My bottle leaks. FUCK.
gallon jug anyone?
