I have a Nalgene Atlantis water bottle that is truly one of my favorite possessions. It’s small—only 20 oz.—so I can carry it everywhere. The lip doesn’t get gunky if I forget to clean it for a couple days. It doesn’t drip. And I’d be happy to own just it alone if it weren’t for Nalgene’s new release: two limited-edition wide-mouth water bottles sporting some seriously cool design to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary.
The first Nalgene water bottle was created in 1949, and by the ’70s, it was hydrating Boy Scouts and rugged outdoorspeople. Back then, its logo featured a mountain lion, which is unarguably the best big cat. Now, that mountain lion is back on these two limited-edition releases, paired with orange and forest green colorways that scream old-school. And Nalgene is still making water bottles that cater outdoor exploration, but they’re just as good for carting to and from the office or gym.
“We’re proud to celebrate Nalgene’s 70-year mission of delivering reusable products with incredible value,” said Elissa McGee, Nalgene Outdoor’s general manager, in a press release. “Nalgene is more than the ‘on trend’ water bottle of the day. Born from science 70 years ago, endurance-tested on the trail, and popularized for decades at campsites, gyms, schools, and offices, Nalgene is the real deal.”
The 70th anniversary water bottles, each 32 oz., are available to purchase on Nalgene’s website for $11.99 each. Plus, when you buy anything else on the website this year, you’ll get a 70th anniversary limited-edition stick as a gift. Nalgene’s water bottles are BPA- and BPS-free, safe for the dishwasher, and with leak-proof lids. If you want to throw it back to the ’70s with a reusable product that’s good for the planet, consider these a great option. And if you’re interested in other water bottles, here are some of Nalgene’s best:
