Epic Nalgene OG | 32 oz
After purchasing the Epic Pitcher we decided that we wanted to have the same water on the go. The color pictured for 'Aubergine' is the same color we received. Quality of the bottle is what you would expect from Nalgene and the taste/cleanliness of the water is what you would expect from Epic.
We do plan on purchasing more of their products and filters for our existing products.
This is a great water bottle. It's a nice size and the filter makes me feel confident that I am drinking clean water (not to mention it tastes better!). One thing I would say is that the straw mechanism is a little tough for me. I wish it had a different option for drinking, such as a straw where you don't have to suck so hard to get the water to come out. It's also tricky if I want to just drink from the lip of the container and not the straw, I have to take the entire filter out and the filter will leak so then I have to find someplace to put it where it won't get my desk all wet. I guess what I am saying is it's only convenient to drink from the straw :)
After a bad Guardia infection it made me very leary to ever want to drink any water. After in depth research I decided on the EPIC company. I have been thoroughly pleased with this water bottle! I carry it with me everywhere and enjoy the purest, clean and even the greatest tasting water!
I asked Epic Support and they said you could use all the ice you wanted. You're just not supposed to freeze the filter itself by putting it in a freezer (expansion from freezing would damage the filter). But adding ice to the water in the bottle won't freeze anything.
So I took the Outdoor OG way down into Mexico in July. Humidity > 80%. And I'm down there, safely drinking all the ice water I wanted.
Also picked up one of Nalgene's koozies for this bottle. So with ice, the bottle doesn't sweat and also keeps the ice from melting so fast.
This is just a great solution! It's also proven to be very rugged over the last few months that I've owned it. Dropped it hard a few times, filter never budged.
I’m always on the go and clean water usually has to come in plastic bottles. Often, especially in airports, this is ridiculously expensive. My new Epic Nalgene OG has already paid for itself and tastes a lot better than disposable plastic bottled water. Great value. I may by another for home!
