- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Has a goat on the side which is great as BC don't send stickers with orders anymore, nor do they send free ones to Australia :( Tough, solid little drink bottle. Great for Ginger Wine when bushwalking, or as a mini hot water bottle when it gets really chilly.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Over the years I have owned quite a few Nalgene bottles. Most of them have either been retired since they have lived their life to the fullest, or have been lost. I have yet to see one of these fall apart or get a hole in it. I love the wide opening so you can put full size ice cubes in your water or mix in your favorite flavored electrolyte mix. BPA free is a plus, but honestly what does not give you cancer these days?
Nice size, Nalgene tough, has the goat.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've had nothing but 1 liter wide mouth nalgenes before and grown to appreciate this 1/2 liters lighter weight and easy fit into daypack. Certainly is Nalgene tough. Most importantly the goat has you covered so you can tell it's your water from everyone else's. Downside to last point is you really have to keep your eye on your water bottle. ;)
Can someone who own this bottle tell me...
Can someone who own this bottle tell me what diameter it has (the bottle itself, not the mouth) ?
2.5 x 6.5 inches
I finally received an answer from Nalgene. Here it is, for the people who are interested :
"For the 16 ounce wide mouth Tritan bottle, the diameter is 2.72 inches (69.1 mm), the height with cap attached is 6.82 inches (173.2 mm), and the empty weight is about 89 grams (3.14 ounces)"
Nalgene is Durable!
I own lots of Nalgene bottles of different sizes and this one is nice and small. My kids use it and love it. I also keep it next to my bed in case I get thirsty during the night. I've had a friend shoot his old one with a shotgun and it to 2 shots to put 1 tiny crack in it! I threw one full of water off a 70ft cliff and it didn't break! That is durable! :)
I totally recommend the 16 oz Nalgene Tritan Bottle
I really like the volume of this bottle because it fits everywhere without being to heavy.
Also it is:
BPA free, Indestrutible and easy to clean.
bottle of many uses
I have a few 32 oz Nalgenes kicking around and they are for water and only water. Okay I mix emergen-c or an electrolyte pack in them once in a while. I drink a lot of water, so the 32 oz is great for that. This little guy is just over 16 oz.....just like a pint glass. I actually use this one to take cocktails on the go. The widemouth allows you to put ice cubes in as well. Works great on river trips when you need to cap off a drink. Always rinse after making cocktails though. Makes a good measuring cup when camping too.
Perfect for the back country
This is one of my essential back country items. I pair it with my Katadyn Pro Hiker water filter and fill it up over and over for drinking water and food preparation. The scale on the side is nice for measuring out just the right amount of water to pour into the dehydrated backpacking food.

Must have bottle!
I love this bottle and use it at work and outdoors! It is very durable. I've thrown one off a 100ft cliff full of water and and it didn't do anything to the bottle! My friend shot his with a shotgun and it took 2 shots to crack it!
I wound recommend only using water in it though and don't let the water get to hot while leaving it in your car or it will start to smell like a fishbowl.
Mighty Little Bottle
Fits in standard holders
Perfect in every way
I only own 1
Buy these. Buy hundreds of these. Also, buy the larger ones, the 32 oz is totally bomber.
Over a decade and still going strong!
I've had my nalgene bottle(s) over a decade now and they are still great. I think this pretty much says it all: a trackhoe (Komatsu mid-range unit, weighs about 7000kg, or 16,000 lbs)with steel tracks ran over my bottle on blacktop. I thought it was done, but to my amazement the thing survived intact. That was about 5 years ago. I have to admit: it does have some deep scratches on it from that experience. That night I took it home and shot at it with the bb gun, filled it with rocks and dropped it off the roof onto the concrete drive (it bounced), and did a bunch of other stuff to it. Then I went out and bought a second.
perfect for a cup of pop or juice.
i usually pair this with my full size nalgene, i use the full size for water, and this little bugger for my orange juice in the morning, and sometimes later at night i fill it with the bad stuff. no not alcohol, POP, but its awesome, it keeps your pop carbonated because of the cap. overall, its just like any other nalgene, just smaller. i think the best use for it would be to carry white rice for hiking though.
Smaller than I had expected...but still great
I didnt pay much attention to the size when I ordered, so I was pretty surprised when I received it. Perfect for kids or the gym- but for most activities, I will stick with the 32 oz.
Wide mouth FTW!
I prefer the wide mouth version even in the 16oz size. They're a lot easier to clean properly.
I wasn't sure if I would use the smaller size but it comes in handy if you are only going for a short hike or walk and it fits inside most of the jacket pockets without weighing you down.
Is the soft plastic part of the cap (the...
Is the soft plastic part of the cap (the part that bends) strong enough to hook a carabiner and hang on your pack without breaking?
Yes, it is strong enough to do that.
Stay thirsty my friends...
I Have a bunch of 32oz nalgenes and have been looking for something smaller to fit in my pack. The 16oz is great if you don't fill up your entire bottle or just need to save on weight and space. Also it has a goat, nuff said.
