Osprey NATO Water Bottle

Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         99 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.

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.

  The Osprey NATO Water Bottle is quite expensively manufactured, using high quality materials. It is extremely rugged, and completely resistant to sunlight, allowing water to stay fresh for extended periods. The cap is a separate part number. The cap has a durable seal. The bottle is made using a number of manufacturing and finishing operations, better than other simpler containers. The bottle is stamped with the NATO stock number, the maker"s name, and the year of manufacture. Keep one of these full of clean drinking water in every vehicle at all times. Very good quality and value from Woodlore.

  Not much to say about this bottle. Great quality and very robust. I was worried about the plastic taste that often comes up when looking at these bottles, but after the first few uses this has gone away. Immediately bought another one after about a week.

  An excellent product - I already own the version with the detachable cup but wanted a second item to go into the other side pocket of my pack. Heavy duty and hard wearing - well recommended.

  Great quality bottle, solid, doesn't leak and holds plenty of water. At first it tasted and smelled slightly rubbery from the seal but after filling it up a few times it no longer smells or tastes of rubber.

  Excellent product,sturdy light and functional. I bought a slightly cheaper imitation from ebay, which leaked and had to send it back. Buy the real thing made by Osprey. I had my last one 20 yrs and it was fine till I lost it. Excellent service.

  These are great quality bottles and this is the best price I've found. Even after prolonged use water stays tasting good, unlike some hydration packs. I bought this as a replacement for my BCB crusader cooking kit. Which is also an awesome product.

  Excellent. My own one which was much older had previously had its lid cracked, making it quite difficult to use. I put in an order for this one and received it in the next two days. It was a 2017 one, the quality was great and its worked fine ever since. Couldn't recommend more, take it with my everywhere.

  100% happy with this water bottle. About time I found one that doesn’t leak. Holds plenty of water to save me constantly refilling. I drink about 3 litres a day. I take a water bottle everywhere with me. I love the fact that I’m not polluting the environment constantly with shop bought bottled water. This bottle will surely last a long long time and come on many travels with me. For first use - I soaked it in hot soapy water. Then soaked it in Milton for half an hour. Fresh, clean and no smells or tastes. Thank you Woodlore for excellent service and delivery!
