AWESOME! Another bottle to add to my Nalgene collection!
These bottles are awesome. I take mine literally everywhere with me, plus I can rep. the goat! They also make great gifts. Get one!
I love this bottle, it super strong, super big... What more is there to say? You could probably smash it with a hammer and it would be fine... It might break your hammer though.
Holding water over my laptop...no worries!!!
Go ahead and try this at home...but make sure its in a Nalgene Wide Mouth Tritan Bottle
Im gonna take this thing everywhere!
The large wide mouth makes sipping and chugging water easy.
The lid seems very durable. Im happy I bought this! First REAL water bottle.
Two day shipping, came in on time! Gotta love the service backcountry provides. Great durable water bottle. Bought two, one for me and one for my girl friend. (they need to make pink, for her)
Only draw back of this water bottle is that it doesnt fit my daypack water bottle holder. Thats alright though! A carabiner will do just fine.
From time to time I use it to keep thing dry
Bomb proof. Use mine for work every day. And it even has a goat on it
I love these. Just got this version, and my old one that says "Backcountrystore.com" (major throwback) is still going strong. This one mo bettah with BPA concerns addressed.

Nalgenes do not break. I have dropped them on some pretty heinous landscape over the years and my bottle is still going strong. You should definitely get one. Super reliable and Iv'e never had one leak on me. Write some reviews and BC will send you a free one!
Just wanted to thank Backcountry for this FREE blue nalgene bottle for being in the top of the leaderboard. Awesome bottle, awesome company!
You can dropped this bottle is nothing happens, for my 8 years old is great!!
Its a bottle, it holds water, it has a wide mouth, it has measurements so you know how much water (or other liquid) you have in it.
Seriously though it does what you needs a bottle like this to do. Doesnt seem to be any issues in manufacturing and as an added bonus it has a goat on it already so you dont have to put one on. The price is right so why mess or look elsewhere for perfection?
I keep getting Emails wanting a review of this item. Here we go..
First off it was free, so it was a great value.
It is blue which is the chosen color for many a first grader when they draw water, so I guess that is good.
It has a loop that keeps the lid from getting lost.. That is a total plus.
It has measurements on the side so you know how much liquid you have.
I am not a "The bottle is half full" or "The bottle is half empty" kind of person... I am a "Who the hell drank out of my bottle" kind of person. So the measurements help with that.
It also has advertising on the side of it so I can be the face of Backcountry.com when I am bitching out whomever might have been poaching sips out of my bottle. So that's good as well.
Did I fail to mention it holds water really well? It does. I bet you could put other things in it and it would hold those things well too.
I bet you could even use it as a pee jar during the night when you don't want to leave the warmth and security of the tent. They say it isn't supposed to hold smell or taste from past liquids, so rinsing it out and using it the next day for your hydration needs shouldn't be an issue.
I bet if I left the urine in the bottle from the previous nights bladder expulsions and wrote apple juice on the side it would teach the person poaching sips out of my bottle a good life lesson. Unless it was Bear Grylls, I once saw that guy bathe in his own pee. To each their own.
It's a nice sturdy bottle. The wide mouth is good for not freezing, and allows for ravenous guzzling on a summer backpacking runs in the blazing sun.
It's thicker walled than similar bottles on the shelf in the local megamart's camping section, but costs the same.
And the goat makes you look sexy, no matter how sweat-soaked and wild-haired you are.
Everyone else on this entire page has given it 5 stars, and so shall I.

Pretty much indestructible. They hold together for life, something you can rely on when you go backpacking putting water in it or at a summer nighttime party a couple years back when I kind of remember (photos from before kind of help out) filling it with a Lebowski AKA White Russian pre-gaming before an employee party. Needless to say they give you good times if you remember them or not. You can never go wrong with these in the backcountry, or especially you can never go wrong with a 'Lebowski' that is super-sized car camping.
As per usual, Nalgene never fails with its quality products (they make flasks, too, did ya know?), and I couldn't be happier to rep my favorite online gear company. Great size for steri-penning or soaking lentils on the trail. Now if only Backcountry would have the narrowneck option made... I'm a certified pro at spilling water down my entire neck/body/surroundings with these wide mouths...
