Finally I found it (them)...

I love water bottles but I am VERY picky when it comes to finding one I really love. Actually, I haven't had one I really love in years. I finally found my water bottle true love and am SO happy! I knew I wanted to be sure to get a *safe* one and I knew Nalgene had changed over and made everything BPA free now, so I began looking. I didn't really want to spend $10 bucks on a bottle, but now I am SO glad I did, here's my wonderful new water bottle...

What do I love about it? It is large enough to get ice in easily when the top is off, it seals perfectly when closed, when open-the drinking part is big enough that I don't feel like I am getting just drops, and it is the perfect size (24 oz) for my taste!!!

Not only did I find my dream bottle, I found one for Pac Man (age 7) too! I broke down and got him a nice one and it is perfect. We put it in his Easter basket and since then he has drank SO much more water, and hardly asks for anything else now. Getting him a special bottle was certainly worth it! Krash is next, he's getting his new BPA free Cars aluminum bottle(got it at Target) for his 3rd bday in about 2 weeks! I also got a new skinny Brita Water Pitcher, to replace one we used to have that didn't work anymore, so we are all enjoying nice, clean, COLD water, without the waste and worry of bottled water. AND guess what, the box had a coupon for another Nalgene water bottle for 99 cents! When I logged on to get it, they did charge shipping so I paid about $4, which is less than half of retail!!! I got my filter at Target last week, in case anyone needs one and wants to look for the coupon!

Carisa - we love those water bottles too.

Where did you find the one for Pax? I bought the kids each one a few months ago and will need new ones soon but they are no longer at the store I originally bought them.

Love you,
Jill

Jill- I ordered his from Amazon, but I got mine at Target and I saw his there too! They were in the camping/sports section.

I just bought my son one of the Nalgene bottles this weekend! He LOVES it. He has been using a Klean Kanteen (with sippy cup adapter) for months, but refused any other cup. I saw those at REI this weekend and he loved it (Daddy uses a Nalgene for his water bottle). Anyway - awesome find! They are great!
