I’m going to start the “Airyca’s Favorite Things” posts with the Nalgene 32oz wide mouth water bottle. The favorite things posts are in no particular order – this is not my favorite product ever, but it is up there on the list of products that I love.
Nalgenes are awesome because:
They’re made in the USA.
They’re BPA free.
They have a wide mouth lid, so they’re easy to clean even in the dishwasher.
There are different lids that you can buy based on your needs or preferences.
and they’re super durable.
There are many different eco-friendly ways to carry water these days, however I do not prefer the stainless steel water bottles, as I like to see what is going on in my water bottle. I also do not like hydration pouches because they are harder to handle and have weird pieces and parts to clean. The wide mouth bottle is simple and easy to carry around in a variety of packs, purses, etc. The glow-in-the-dark feature of my Nalgene is purely novelty, but I really love it.
Guyot Designs even created this cool light up lid that my friend Murph from Bladeforums sent to me that fits the Nalgene and it works as a lantern.
