I never thought I'd see the day where a particular brand of water bottle became fashionable, but here we are, people. I assume the other three horsemen will be arriving shortly.

You can run over a Nalgene bottle and it won't break.

I can run over a Dasani bottle and... not care.

Also, the cheaper bottles allegedly grow weird spores and shit after about 3 days. At the rate you'd have to replace the Dasani bottles, your investment with Nalgene ends up being a better deal. I should know.

as you probably know already
I agree that Nalgene's trendiness is kind of annoying, and 16 oz is a totally useless volume. But Nalgene is basically the de facto standard for people who actually hike, camp, etc, and they have been for years longer than the sorority girls have been toting them to Psych 101. A Nalgene bottle will take an awful lot of abuse, far more than the average poseur will subject it to. That's why I like 'em.

I hadn't seen those before. That's pretty funny. I love Powells but I don't think I need one of those.

I have one of those! My boss bought it for me. It's LITERATURE, which is 52% plot and only 3% pretense (obviously they are not reading Dave Eggers).

I love my Nalgene bottle b/c I'm trying to diligently drink my 8oz of water a day, and the Nalgene sitting on my desk all day helps a great deal. I only have to refill it once a day, rather than every hour or so.

I re-use Dasani bottles as well, but the hottest bottled water is Fiji Water. I heart that stuff, but I think it's out of stores already.

Re: as you probably know already
"only 3% pretense"? another reason why it should be amended to be the "classics" water bottle... but still. i'm a powell's fan, for sure.

as for water: i love it. but i'm not that picky. i mean, i sure as hell could be--i have lots of opinions and preferences--but i'm too cheap to put my money where my mouth is. or at least to put my money in my mouth.

rubbermaid. 1 liter. $1.69
diswasher safe.

...and i never thought i'd see the day when we have to pay for water...trendy assholes who would even have the ego to pay seven bucks for a bottle to carry around their water should be drawn and quartered...pay the fucking .99 cents for the dasani and give the remaining six bucks away to your favorite charity...you'll sleep better at night...

You obviously don't drink very much water.
Sep. 4th, 2003 01:31 pm (UTC)
as a matter of fact, i drink lots of water...sometimes right from the tap or water fountain...imagine that, water from a faucet that's actually drinkable...and we're still around to talk about it...well, well, well...
Sep. 4th, 2003 03:50 pm (UTC)
I don't live somewhere I feel comfortable drinking water from the tap. I'm glad you do though.

Plus I like having a reusable bottle I carry around with me everywhere I go instead of making more garbage.

Well my Nalgene bottle holds 32oz and can be washed over and over without ever getting funky. Dasani is made by Coke and is just filtered water (Brita anyone?). So I could buy a new Dasani bottle every few days and fill it up out of my Brita and spend enough to buy a Nalgene bottle within say, a month or I can just have the Nalgene bottle and never have to think about it again. (Unless of course, you're like me and lost your last one on the plane coming back from Vegas. Thanks hangover!) Plus, I don't think the bottle is necessarily fashionable, they've been proven to be sturdy and useful in real life.

Yeah, I usually use the Dasani or Aquafina bottles (1 ltr size) and just fill 'em with Brita-filtered tap water. But then this is for home use. I would probably invest in a sturdier bottle if I had to put it in my bag or lug it around all day.

I haven't noticed spores and things on my bottles, but that's because I rinse them out often and clean around the opening regularly.

At least it's not styrofoam, which will still be here way after the deluge or the arrival of the 4th Horseman...along with Twinkies, Cockroaches and Cher.

Tap water - virtually free, supply virtually endless
Brita Filter - pennies per ounce, re-supply filter once a month, same water as Desani
