I purchased this bottle last week when I was in Michigan visiting my family. I wanted to represent the D in SC. I have tons of water bottles, but this was my first Nalgene. The bottles always seemed so boring to me, but when I saw the Detroit logo on the bottle... I NEEDED IT and had to have it. I LOVE IT. I've only had it for a week and I literally wash it each night so that I can use it again the next day. I broke down the other night and actually ordered the orange one... so now I have two. Be jealous!
This water bottle is amazing. I use it on the daily. Recently I went to Denver and lost my water bottle which made me upset and by the time I knew I lost it had already ordered one online 5 minutes later. Would recommend this to everyone. I now have at least 6 nalgenes but I only use this one! Go buy one right now. Stop what you are doing and buy it. Why are you still reading this? Go buy it.
I have had about twenty of these things in the past decade. When all of your friends steal your watter bottle (who the hell steals a water bottle, they are kind of personal), it's a great indicator of it being a great product. They have handled canoe trips, hiking, lacrosse and hockey games, car accidents, cross country trips, and countless other adventures.These are also perfect for mixing an "adult" beverage or two before a softball game, just in case y'all wanted to think outside the box. If you are looking for an indestructible plastic bottle, look no further than a Nalgene.These are dope.
Nalgene bottles are awesome, you can get different caps from the Nalgene website if you don't like the wide mouth cap (on the go cap is the best). All caps work on all bottles from what i know. The bottles can take a beating! i have put mine though huge amounts of abuse and it never cracked! they can take very hot water and will not get soft like most bottles as well.
"This is my favorite beverage container on the continent."
The Moosejaw Axel Foley Tritan Nalgene Bottle is the greatest! I use it for water, iced tea, iced chai lattes, and everything in between. It doesn't stink, even after containing iced tea and rolling under my passenger seat for a few days. There is a part on my cap that melted a bit from the dishwasher, but no major damage. I purchased the silicone insert that fits in the mouth of the bottle; I'm now less likely to spill my liquids all over my shirt when parched.
I have had plain old water before. It was okay. I got this Moosejaw tattooed Nalgene in outrageous orange and now I LOVE water. The space age plastic protects the water from falling out or becoming invisible through the magic of evaporation. Little lines on the side with numbers help you know how much water you drink with every sip or how much water you poured out into your pot to boil for your spicy Ramen soup bowl. It's also fun to look through the bottle at stuff, which will look orange because the bottle is orange. I like Detroit, too. Go, Tigers! If you put cold water in, it sweats like crazy, like me. Left a ring on my adirondack chair. It probably needs a sweatband. I'm wearing sweatbands now. I swore it would never happen, but they are kind of helpful. I don't need a coaster, though. That would be awkward, because, you know, I'm a human.
The moosejaw axel foley nalgene bottle is most excellent. If you are familiar with other Nalgene bottles, not much new here except for a pretty rad graphic. Who wouldn't appreciate repping the D when hanging around town or letting the bears and gophers know what's what when rockin' the trails?
