Our Family has been taking more hikes lately and trying to stay hydrated. We love the Nalgene Water Bottles that we were sent to review.
nalgene is a company that is all about helping people simplify their lives and respecting the Environment. We received several different styles of water bottles and we love them all! What I love about nalgene water bottles for the girls is that they are completely leak proof! I love how Charlotte and Leah’s water bottles look like bigger girl cups. Charlotte loves having a sippy cup without actually having a sippy cup. She is getting to be a big girl and doesn’t need the baby type cups.
We received a couple of the kids grip n gulps and both the girls really like them.
“We’ve taken on Everest. Now we’re ready for toddlers! Nalgene containers have stood up to some of the worlds most extreme conditions. Small potatoes compared to small children. The new Nalgene Grip’n Gulp™ is tough enough to survive being thrown form a moving minivan, spill proof enough to compel parents to blame the rug stains on the dog, and odor proof enough to allow leftover milk to go undetected under the couch for months. Most importantly, its a great way for little kids to reach new heights.

The girls both loved the bright colors of the water bottles like bright grean, pink and more!
Leah also really loved her wide mouthed water bottle. What I especially love about this bottle is Leah can bring it to school, tumbling or wherever she needs to go. It’s the perfect size for her! It also fits the pill lid accessory, which is perfect if I want to take it along and put any vitamins, medicine or other things I may need!
“Back in 2005 we launched the OTG (On the Go Bottle). Our customers had demanded, yes demanded, that we make a hard sided bike bottle. We countered by saying, “But, you can’t squeeze a hard bottle”. The customers said that it was our job to figure it out.
For years Goldberg and his growing team developed the Nalgene line of state-of-the-art polyethylene laboratory equipment: centrifuge bottles, filter units, storage tanks.
Obviously, it wasn’t the kind of stuff you toss into your backpack for a weekend in the woods.
But there were rumors floating around … stories about scientists taking the smaller, more convenient bottles out of the lab and using them on hikes and excursions.
By the 1970s this “unofficial” use for Nalgene bottles caught the eye of Marsh Hyman (President of the Nalge Company in Rochester, New York).
The Boy Scout connection…
Marsh had a son who was in the Boy Scouts. He and his fellow Scouts used Nalgene lab bottles on the trail. They were perfect as water bottles; for storing powdered drinks and pancake mix; and for carrying matches and shampoo and snacks and all sorts of camping supplies.
When he learned about these great new uses for his lab bottles, Marsh Hyman went to the Nalge Specialty Department with a mission: “Spread the word to outdoorspeople all over! Tell them about this new line of high-quality camping equipment.” (nalgene website)
