“Here at Nalgene Outdoor, we get a lot of mail from campers, hikers, and other active outdoorspeople who love their NALGENE bottles. In fact, NALGENE Outdoor Products are recognized by explorers and adventurers around the globe.
How did these bottles get so popular? Where do they come from?
How it all started…
Back in 1949, a Rochester, New York chemist named Emanuel Goldberg developed the first plastic pipette holder. Along with three workers, he began the Nalge Company in a small building at 625 South Goodman Street.
For years Goldberg and his growing team developed the NALGENE line of state-of-the-art polyethylene laboratoryequipment: 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).”
Nalgene makes water bottles for athletes, hikers, bikers, and even children! This reputable company is well known across the world and it is certainly a name brand that everyone trusts!
I used to wonder why it seemed that everyone on the track had a Nalgene bottle with them. Now that I have my own, I totally understand and can completely relate as I was sent a really cool OTG — Spring Green — Everyday Bottle in Spring Green and love it so much!!
These bottles are extremely durable, BPA free (the new ones), don’t leak, and keep water or sports drinks tasting fresh. I’ve dropped my Nalgene on rough rocks many times, but besides a few scratches it never has cracked or leaked!!
I was also sent some Nalgene Grip-n-Gulp bottles for children to review, and they totally exceeded my expectations!

Nalgene Grip-N-Gulp water bottle for kids and toddlers!
Nalgene containers have stood up to some of the worlds most extreme conditions. The new Nalgene Grip’n Gulp is tough enough to survive being thrown from 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.
My nieces used these all weekend at camp and they are beyond outstanding!! In fact, my sister-in-law is in the midst of ordering a bunch more of these as she said they are definately a must-have and she just cannot live without them now!!
