Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         134 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.

  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.

  A must have if you use a Crusader cup. Very tough. Doesn't leak. Wide opening so you can fill quickly or add ice cubes.

  £9 for a 1 litre bottle (very competitive) and delivered the next day for no extra charge. Amazon would struggle with this or at least charge £5 for delivery. Beyond impressed is an understatement. The bottle looks great and I’m sure it will last ages.

  Bottle is nice and robust. I wasn't sure this would be the case as I've seen some that are pretty flimsy, this should stand up well. Nests nicely with the Crusader Cup. I was extremely pleased with how quickly the package arrived in Canada from the UK. Great addition to my kit.

  A classic piece of kit, incredibly tough and a good price. This is an original bottle from Osprey, made to MOD issue spec, don't be lured into buying cheaper but less durable and sometimes smaller alternatives!

  Leaves little taste and smell in water compared to other plastic products. Holds a good amount, is light. Black to let no light in, strong seal and cap. Works perfectly with the BCB system. Only negative is the cap swings around to smoothly so when pouring the cap keeps getting in the way.

  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.
