Product Description

OTG stands for "On The Go". In retrospect that kind of marketing should have been a warning. This bottle is designed to fit in the cup holder of your car or bicycle. It is NOT suitable for serious hiking or climbing, for a very simple reason: it doesn't stay closed! Tip it over, and it leaks.

I was looking for a small (this one is only 24 fl oz, not much more than half a liter), light bottle that fits the connector on my water filter and has an easy-to-sip spout, to replace a previous Nalgene bottle (it cracked on a rock) of a model that has apparently been discontinued. Maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing - anybody know of an adapter that lets water filters mate with Gatorade bottles?


standard-Nalgene-width gullet.
flip-up cover (with finger-loop hinge) over narrow spout.

Small capacity (24 fl oz).

Endlessly entertaining potential to spill in your car trunk, your backpack, your tent, your sleeping bag, etc.

That little latch is insufficient to keep the lid closed. Luckily I discovered this at the trailhead after my backpack tipped over during the drive, and not while keeping the bottle inside my tent.
