Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         125 reviews
The Osprey NATO Water Bottle is a classic piece of outdoor equipment, having been standard issue to the British Army for many decades. It holds 1 litre of water and is made of a rigid black plastic that will not split or break like other imitation bottles on the market. The BCB NATO Crusader Cup is a great accompaniment and comfortably sits on top of the Osprey Water Bottle for transportation.

Please note, historically the BCB NATO Crusader Cup used to fit on the bottom of the Osprey NATO Water Bottle but over many years the size of the bottle has slightly increased.

This heavy duty water bottle features a seal in the lid to prevent leakage, while the lid is permanently attached to save you losing it. When purifying collected water with chemicals, the black plastic of the Osprey Water Bottle prevents light from affecting the purification process, making this a safer choice.

  Robust bottle. Only has faint smell of plastic like most any new plastic product has. Wide mouth ( compared to U.S issue bottle ) makes filling easier. Excellent service from the Woodlore team.

  Great water bottle, fits nicely into the side pouch on my Leaf Cutter rucksack. No leaks and lightweight to boot.

  The original British Army water bottle. Been issued since the late fifties. Lightweight and tough as an old dms. I know it's old habits but I much prefer two of these and a military 3ltr in my pack rather than others that can crack, heavy metal type containers or the trend for flimsy smart type plastic bottles.

  solid and with a seal under the cap, this NATO water bottle should last for years. Nice large 1 litre capacity is more than most drinking bottles of 700 to 900 ml. I need to find a suitable molle mount holder for my next trip.

  Great bottle. Tough, simple and built to last. I wouldn’t hang it from the cap strap as this might break as the bottle is pretty heavy when full. Only criticism is it smells quite strongly of plastic so I would give it a good wash out before using.

  Fairly standard water bottle but fit for purpose, in other words it doesn’t leak like poor imitations. Cheers Callum for the advice.

  Nice size with a robust design and a solid price. Apart from the rubber seal falling out and the plastic cap connector breaking as I used a carabiner to clip the bottle to myself and after a while it snapped, so go get a bottle carrier for it. Have had the same ones since 2015 and they're a solid member of the family.
