Osprey NATO Water Bottle

Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         94 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.

As part of the NATO system, the Osprey Water Bottle is designed to sit inside the BCB NATO Crusader Cup, helping to save space in your rucksack. These two items then fit perfectly inside the camouflage NATO Water Bottle Cover, which can be attached to your belt.

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.

  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!

  Bombproof, easy to grab (more useful than you'd imagine) Holds loads of h2o. It's a classic. Mine did stink of plastic something horrible when I got it as some people have mentioned. Strong dishwasher tablet solution followed by vinegar and bicarb sorted that out (inverted in a mug with the cap loosely screwed on to wash the seal). Fingers crossed it's worked long term. Time will tell. You'll struggle to break it unless you get it too hot, but you'd have to be a numpty and you don't deserve one.

  This is my second water bottle. Unfortunately, I lost the first one in an accident. Because of the good quality and size I wanted a new Osprey Water Bottle.

  I bought this around three years ago and have used it on every outing, never leaving my side. It's very tough, ergonomically perfect, very well designed and made. One of my most trusted piece of kit, we've become very close friends. As well as fitting into pouches on my backpacks it sits snug and comfy when attached to my to my belt with a carabiner - really nice when just walking about or doing thirsty work. The shape allows for the bottle to sit upright without moving or blowing around (weather dependant) so easy to fill up from dripping mountains, for example. Just when you think a bottle couldn't do anymore, you realise the flattened side allows for easy collecting from a shallow stream or surface. The accompanying crusader cup is also excellent. I use this everyday and have zero issues, only compliments. And for only £9.00

  Fantastic bottle. Strong, no leaks and it fits in the binocular pocket of my Swazi Tahr perfectly.
