"We are so excited to launch this special edition bottle with local Boulder artist Phil Lewis and the team at Epic Water Filters. Phil has created an amazing design on the bottle and we think this is a great medium to help bring awareness about protecting our oceans, waterways, and wildlife from plastic pollution. I honestly think this is the coolest water bottle I have ever seen!" - Vicki Goldstein, Inland Ocean Coalition
"I was fortunate enough to grow up on the pristine shores of Lake Tahoe, one of the clearest lakes in the world. At a very early age, I realized the impact we had on keeping it that way. As human beings living on this planet, I believe we are all connected; especially through water. The snow pack that melts into the lakes and rivers, eventually makes its way to the ocean… and everything it encounters along the way will contribute to the cycle. I am honored to participate in this project aiming to keep single-use plastic bottles out of the mix. As you spin the bottle, you can follow the water’s journey, from the mountain peaks to the waves in the ocean. Together we can help keep it clean the whole way!" - Phil Lewis, Phil Lewis Art
"We are excited and honored to work with Phil Lewis to support Inland Ocean Coalition's mission to engage inland communities in land-to-sea stewardship. The #1 reason why people buy single use plastic bottled water is they do not trust their tap water. At Epic, we are making super strong American made filters so that people can feel confident drinking from their taps." - Ash Heather, Epic Water Filters
The Nalgene OG Story
In the 1970s, conservationists began discouraging the disposal of cans and glass bottles by burning and burying them in the wilderness & in recreation areas. Eventually, some of those places responded with regulations and began forbidding such materials. Nalgene products quickly became popular replacements among backpackers for storing consumables; the light, wide-mouthed high-density bottles were more secure than plastic bags and were used for both liquids and solid foods. Originally, wilderness travelers purchased Nalgene products from laboratory-equipment suppliers or gained access to them through their networks, like in their workplaces.
Company lore has it that the Nalgene Company president discovered that his son's Boy Scout troop was using Nalgene laboratory containers for camping. Since then, the company has re-packaged and marketed the items for consumer sales through their line of Nalgene Outdoor Products. In 2018, Epic Water Filters & Nalgene began to discuss a collaboration between the Nalgene 32 oz wide mouth bottle and the Everyday Filter system from Epic Water Filters (both made in the USA). We could not be happier putting our filter into the OG American made water bottle, the Nalgene 48 oz wide mouth.
"OG" back in the day used to mean Original Gangster although some younger people these days use OG as a quicker way of saying "The Original" - at Epic, we thought, what is more OG than the Nalgene 48oz wide mouth bottle? That is why we call it the Epic Nalgene OG. It's the original gangster.
Reusable by Design
At Epic Water Filters, we believe in building products that never become obsolete. Our water bottles with filters are a perfect example. When you invest in the Nalgene OG, you get a modular system designed to grow with your family and perform for years to come. Whether you are trying to remove tap water contaminants or taking your Nalgene OG bottle on your next adventure overseas, the interchangeable filter system has you covered no matter where you find yourself. All of our filters are recyclable through our recycle program (see here).
Our American-made and American-tested filters outperform well known filtration brands any day of the week. You'll notice some of our biggest competitors do not even publish test results -- that's because their filters only remove bad taste and some chlorine (like that Brita water bottle you've become so skeptical of lately).
Dimensions: Approximately 23 cm from the bottom of the bottle to the top of lid & approximately 8.5 cm in diameter
Our American-made Everyday Water Bottle Filter are tested against NSF/ANSI Standards 42, 53, 401, & P473 for contaminant reduction (see Everyday Filter Test Results for more)

Tested and Approved Worldwide
Epic Water Filters have been independently certified and tested across the globe in both field and laboratory tests in multiple countries. These rigorous processes are just another way we go well beyond what's required to deliver the cleanest, purest water possible.
Care Instructions: The bottle, lid, and straw are dishwasher safe but we always recommend that you hand wash the bottle, straw and lid with mild dish soap and warm water. The Everyday Filter is not dishwasher safe. Never use soap on the filter itself. For cleaning the outside of the filter, we recommend just using warm water and a brush.
Best way to care for you Nalgene OG: Put the Nalgene OG, lid, & straw, in a sink filled with warm water and a small amount of mild dish soap and let it soak. If you’d prefer, you can also put the warm water and soap in the bottle to soak for a few minutes. Shake it to distribute the soapy water, rinse really well and let it dry. As long as you use a small amount of a mild soap, there shouldn’t be any soapy taste left in the bottle. However, if you’d rather skip the soap you can use warm water and lemon or warm water and baking soda to clean the bottle. Let the Nalgene OG, lid, & straw dry in a dish rack until use. Now go enjoy some Epic Water!
