Drink Bottles

Nalgene Wide Mouth Bottles

1 liter Glow Green / 1,5 liter Silo / 1 liter Retro Kayak / 1 liter Cerulean Sustainable

I love my Nalgene bottles. All Wide Mouths and all with their own use. The most obvious being the Glow-in-the-Dark bottle, in use as winter hot-water bottle to warm my sleeping bag and as midnight pee-in-the-dark bottle (we all have one, or should have one, preventing loss of bodywarmth by leaving the tent).
Next is my 1,5 liter Silo, which serves two main purposes: I use it at the end of the day to have cooking and drinking water at hand and during the day it gets filled whenever I need dead-weight to secure my tripod.
The all new Retro Kayak bottle accompanies me on kayak trips, to make my nutritional shakes. Last-but-not-least I have one of the sustainable bottle, made out of 50% recycled material, in use in my basecamp kitchen for cerials.

The HumanGear capCAP+ is an improvement for many widemouth bottles, by making drinking more comfortable, whilst maintaining the filling convenience.

Poketle Mini Thermos

far left: +6 Hang / far right: S
center front: +4

Poketle is the ultimate Japanese lightweight mini thermos. Made from stainless steel and sislicon rubber, these slim bottles can easily be stored in pockets and handbags ad will keep drinks and food warm/cold for 6 hours.
Preparing some more coffee/thee and taking itwith you in a thermos, saves fuel and time. The S will fit a coffee/thee very well, the +6 can contain even more. Remember that less air inside the thermos, means it’ll retain heat/cold longer. That’s why these smaller thermos’s stand out in practicality.

Poketle S – Thermos (Ø4,5x13cm, 120ml)
This smallest version holds 120ml, which is exactly the capacity needed for a cup of coffee. (Nespresso’s lungo-size coffee is 111 ml)

Poketle +6 Hang (Ø4,5×19,6cm, 180ml)
This slightly larger thermos has a ‘carabiner’ offering great functionality, especially inside ones kayak, keeping it in place.

Poketle +4 – Soup (Ø6,5x9cm,160ml)
Originally meant to be used for soup, I use this little container for the spills of any meal, keeping them warm for 6 hours.

RidgeMonkey ThermoMug

I serached for decent insolated mugs for a long time. These RidgeMonkey ThermoMugs keep my brew seriously hot! This will keep drinks and food hot a lot longer than titanium double walls and is for more durable than glass or ceramic walled insolation mugs. The drink through lid works well. The handle is mitt friendly. This 400ml mugs are made from polypropylene in gunmetal grey and gunmetal green.

Water: Filtering and/or Purifying

Grayl UltraPress Purifier & Filter

The Grayl UltraPress Purifier & Filter is my goto device. Scoop up the water (reservoir right), press in the main body (center) and voila: Drink! Wether it is the water I’m kayaking in, or a mountain stream/lake will on a hike, I’m sure this bottle will free the water from viruses (99.99% of viruses like Hepatitis A, SARS, Rotavirus), bacteria & protozoa (99.9999% of disease-causing bacteria like E. coli, Salmonella) and 99.9% of protozoan cysts (like Giardia, Cryptosporidium). It also filters particulates like sediment and silt, many chemicals like chlorine and benzene and heavy metals like lead and arsenic. With a capacity of 250 liter per cartridge, they will last a long time before it needs to be replaced.

Other Filters and Purifiers

Bacteria, Protozoa and Viruses are the reasons for filtering water.
Filtering water removes, debris, waterborne protozoa and bacteria, but not viruses.
Purifing also removes viruses, but not debris, offering a higher level of defense.
I use a selection of methods to clean water in the backcountry, amongst which:

  • MSR TrailShot Pocket-Sized Water Filter, for filling bottles, but during the winter, the only device I have with me. (Front Center)
  • LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, for drinking straight from a stream. (Top Left)
  • Steripen Aqua UV Purifier, battery powered, for cleaning water I do not trust (in 45 seconds minutes). (Top Right)
  • Katadyn Micropur Forte Purifier, for cleaning water I do not trust (in 30-120 minutes). (Bottom Left)
To emphasize the importance of filtering and/or purifying drinking water: a sheep dropping with a 30 cm tapeworm …..
