Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         143 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.

  The Osprey NATO Water Bottle (NATO stock number 8465-99-973-6665 ) does exactly what it sets out to do without leaking, and the wide neck opening facilitates the inside of the bottle drying out after post-use washing. A great lightweight water bottle, and matched with Woodlore's excellent service there's nothing to dislike and everything to praise.

  The water bottle is great. I have one complaint, the water bottle is too tight for the cup I purchased for it. Pulling it out of the cup is vary difficult.

  I just bought the brilliant Crusader Cup so I couldn't leave without buying an Osprey water bottle too. It'd be like having a rod without a reel, they work so well together and such a wise use of space.

  Excellent quality, sturdy bottle, genuine Osprey seemingly manufactured this current year. It was the cheapest price I could find and even arrived next day, packed well. What more could you want?

  Wow. Solidly built and holds a decent amount of water. Sensibly sized to fit in my backpack without being obtrusive and now in regular use on my local trips out. Definitely don't get that plasticky taste or smell which I've experienced with other plastic bottles in the past. This one's the real deal. Awesome service as always from Ryan, Paul and the team at Woodlore despite me living in Malaysia and it took about a week to arrive from the UK. Another quality purchase from Woodlore.Thanks guys.

  Genuine 58 pattern water bottle. Not a cheap nock off that will leak. I like the fact you can just buy the bottle without the plastic cup. The bottle is very stiff fitting in a crusader cup, this is easily remedied by filling with hot water to soften the plastic then pushing the bottle into the cup. Empty out the hot water and fill with cold water while the bottle is still inside the cup to set the shape and the bottle will then slide in and out crusader cup with ease.

  Good quality new NATO 50 pattern water bottle, light weight, but strong and does not leak as some versions do. Have used this in the field and very pleased, would recommend. Also arrived quickly after purchase.

  Good bottle but as advertised it is a tight fit for the Crusader cup, it is harder to slip the bottle out one handed without looking. On the flip side it doesn't rattle around in the mug like my old bottles do so there is less noise.
