The original. The trailblazer. The Sir Edmund of water bottles. If you’re looking for a water bottle that will keep you well hydrated, hold up against bangs, bumps, and drops, and not leak a single drop ever, then the iconic 32-ounce wide mouth is your water bottle. There’s a reason why we haven’t changed its design in decades—because it works (extremely well).

I bought two of these recently based on the fact that they were just your normal Nalgene bottle -- but bigger.
As soon as I opened them, the chemical stench was enough to make me dry-heave. It was intense. It smelled like these bottles had been storing Ortho weed-killer in them for a long time. That's literally what it smells like -- Ortho weed killer. If you've ever stored some of that in your garage, you'll know it, too.
So, I opened the lids and let them sit around for a few days. Nothing. Then I rinsed them out with hot water. Nothing. I figured maybe I should just use them and the smell will go away, but whatever it is that causes the smell also caused the water to be tainted. It was disgusting.
I let them sit around for another week to air out. Nothing. Then I washed them a couple more times and let them sit around again. Still nothing. They smell. They're awful. A waste of money and I have to assume the reason these are going so cheap (I think it was about ten dollars each at the time I purchased them) is because the company realizes they're defective or something.
If you are the kind of person who is frequently put off by chemical smells in products that you open, you absolutely need to avoid these at all costs. If you are someone, like me, who is a bit more difficult to offend with chemical smelling products (either you never smell it or the smell goes away quickly for you), then . . . honestly, I would still avoid these.
Unless you intend on using these for some purpose other than storing things you intend to put in your mouth (like a place to keep a bunch of lug-nuts or something), avoid these. Just avoid them. Buy literally anything else.
The lightweight aspect makes it perfect for backpacking. I took my new purcase on a 10 mile backpacking trip through a snowstorm in the mountains and it served me very well.
The wide mouth opening makes it perfect for filling, drinking, and is even wide enough to drink out of with a life-straw. This is an important trait for backpackers.
Also fits snug is pro backpacks. See it pictured here during my backpacking trip to Willow Springs, AZ this last weekend.
