This is a little late in the thread, but here goes...
Can someone clue me in as to what Nalgene bottles are, what they look like, where I find them, etc. I've heard that Nalgene bottles are better since the tops are bigger, makes them easier to clean, so they are less likely to harbor bacteria.

The Sigg bottles are great. They're lined with a baked-on enamel, so the water doesn't contact the aluminum directly. They're lightweight, but certainly heavier than plastic water bottles. They also dent and ding fairly easily. You can't squeeze them like you can a plastic water bottle, so you have to suck to get your water out.
Thanks for the info!

Nalgene bottles are big plastic bottles, often used for camping, made with either a narrow neck or a wide neck and a loop top so the lid can't get lost. If you're going to get one make sure it's the white kind not the translucent kind - you don't want #7 plastic (aka polycarbonate or Lexan) because of the leaching issues. You can find them at places like www.campmor.com

For anyone looking for an affordable stainless steel water bottle that holds the same amount of water as a Nalgene, go to Walmart.

I just bought the Ozark Trail Stainless Steel Vacuum Bottle in the camping section of a local Walmart for $12.87 + tax. It's sturdy, has an opening big enough for ice cubes, holds 1.0 L/33.9 oz. liquid, and has both a handle and an optional carrying strap.

I've been looking for months, using old Snapple bottles in the meantime, and this is the best deal there is!

Happy shopping, and happy clean drinking water!
