32oz Wide Mouth & 32oz Narrow Mouth Bottles
32oz Wide Mouth
First, let’s look at the iconic 32oz Wide
Mouth bottle. 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 they haven’t changed its design in decades—because it works
(extremely well). The Wide Mouth also comes in 16oz (1
pint) and 48oz (3 pints).
32oz Narrow Mouth
The Wide Mouth may be the King, but his brother the
32oz Narrow Mouth is certainly no
slouch. This is the “water drinker’s water bottle.” Thanks to the smaller opening of the
Narrow Mouth less water can rush out, making it easier to chug mindlessly. Everything else
about the Narrow Mouth is like its Wide Mouth compatriot, so you get all the durability and
no-leak peace of mind but without the stress of a mess. Just note that no ice cubes or lemon
wedges are getting in here, so if you prefer more than water in your water bottle, check out
the Wide Mouth bottles. There’s no 48oz version (at least not yet) but you’ll also be
pleased to know that a 16oz
version is an option for those looking to take up less space or save on weight.
In addition to the classic Wide and Narrow Mouth Nalgenes we have all come to know and love, they do have
multiple other great bottle options such as the Atlantis, MultiDrink, On-The-Fly, On-The-Go, Oasis, N-Gen, and
two types of Fitness bottles. Let’s start with the latter.
22oz Draft Bottle
The Fitness line currently consists of two styles, the Draft and the ATB. The 22oz Draft
bottle is a squeezable sports water bottle designed for your physical pursuits. It
comes in just the one size and is the perfect bottle that fits bike cages, exercise
machines, and backpack pockets. No fussy top to pull or bite - simply squeeze and the water
comes out of the self-sealing valve. Twist the top and the Draft becomes totally leak-proof
so you can toss it in your gym bag without soaking your gear.
The 22oz ATB (or
All-Terrain Bottle) is a squeezable sports water bottle designed for your
physical pursuits. The lid is a snap-lock cover that keeps your mouthpiece clean and
protected from splatter, spray, dirt, and germs. The covering flips back with one finger so
you can quickly drink to your heart’s content. A larger size of 32oz is available if fewer
refills on the go is what you’re looking for.
24oz N-Gen bottle (aka the Next Generation) has a slim, graduated profile that
makes it easy and comfortable to hold, while its extra-rugged co-polyester material stands
up to extremes of all kinds. Its detached cap features a handy loop that's easily grabbed by
fingers, carabiners, or backpack clips.
32oz Oasis, where tenacity meets capacity. The old camping canteen had some work
done – and Nalgene was the plastic surgeon. This rugged, modern trail companion holds an
impressive 32 ounces of water and its slim design makes it ultra portable. Plus, it’s
semi-translucent so you can see if the inside is clean and know how much water you have
before you reach your next refilling station.
24oz Everyday OTG
Active folks all over have come to know and love Nalgene’s
24oz On the Go (OTG) collection.
This bottle features one-handed operation so you can pop the top and take a drink without
letting go of your momentum... or anything else for that matter. It’s equally at home in a
bike cage, car cup holder, or on your desk.
24oz On the Fly
If you’re a fan of the On the Go bottle then you’re also going to love the
24oz On the Fly (OTF). This bottle incorporates a leak-proof, looped top that swings
open wide to reveal a contoured, high-flow drinking spout that's easy to fill at the
fountain or sink. The
push-button release for the lid is operated with one hand for easy opening and closing and a
locking bail snaps down over the release button for the ultimate insurance against leaks.
The 20oz MultiDrink is
quite possibly Nalgene’s most versatile bottle. It offers two
different ways to drink. A straw pivots out for easy sips, or just unscrew the cap for big
gulps. Remove the whole lid for easy cleaning or filling with ice.
The 20oz Atlantis
utilizes the same one-handed push button lid with locking capability as the
On the Fly bottle, but pairs it up with a smaller capacity and different colorways. Think
MultiDrink bottle meets OTF lid.

From ionic to iconic: The story of Nalgene
Science with a Twist did a great podcast about the story of Nalgene bottles. If you're a fan
of these iconic water bottles that have become a staple of the outdoor community then you
should probably give this a listen!

2.5 million plastic bottles are trashed hourly in the United States
Use a Nalgene bottle instead of a disposable bottle and in 1 year you’ll save 167 bottles from landfills. Most
Nalgene bottles are made from Tritan, a BPA-free, #7 recyclable plastic that is safe, durable, and made in the
USA. Almost all of the materials and manufacturing of Nalgene’s bottles and containers happened right here in
the USA as well, minimizing Nalgene’s carbon footprint.
20 Uses for a Nalgene
Single-use water bottles are not only wasteful and bad for the environment, but they are also
just that- single use. Recently, we asked our employees to come up with a list of uses they
have for a reusable Nalgene bottle aside from just drinking out of it. We received a ton of
answers and some of them were pretty out there (seriously, our employees have done some
weird things with Nalgenes). Without further ado, here is our list of the 20 best uses we
