Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         118 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.

  I like this bottle very much. Large opening allows for easy filling and easy drinking. Strong smell of plastic when the bottle is open but water tastes good without the taste of plastic which is good. I hope that the smell will disappear after some use.

  This is a very solid bit of kit, For example the lid is attached to the bottle by a tough bit of plastic, it can break but will take a lot of abuse. My old one is 20 years plus and still going strong, I just got a couple for the kids and these look equally tough. Great value on this site as well, I really appreciate that you can get the basics here at a reasonable price.

  Exactly as described. These are genuine Osprey military Issue. Not the cheap Chinese copy ones. And they're Brand New. I've had the other ones before, these are printed on bottle with Nato number and date of manufacture. Excellent item and rapid delivery.

  Great service from Woodlore as always: Thanks. I gave the bottle three stars because the spout is larger than my old U.S. Army canteen, and I do prefer a smaller spout, but that's just my personal preference. The loop strap that holds the top on is thin and as yet I'm unsure if it will stand up to the test of time without breaking off (perhaps it will but time will tell). I washed it 20 times and I can still smell and taste that plastic substance. Maybe after many uses that will dissipate. I do hope so. But saying all that it does what it is supposed to do.

  Great quality water bottles. They do exactly what they're supposed to do, they hold water without leaking or breaking. Made from Really durable materials, seem like they can with stand the beating they'll undoubtedly get over time. Far better than some of the cheaper imitations on the market.

  Good solid bottle which is what I was after since others seem to crack or hinged type lids break easily. Gave it a good wash and tested it but after about an hour the water was disgusting and smelt like air from a tyre. I think its from the O ring in the lid and must off seeped into the plastic whilst in storage. I've used Milton's, washing liquid, baking soda and vinegar, lemon juice and finally soaked in strong bleach and hot water overnight which seems to have done the trick as no more odour. Glad it worked as its perfect for my needs and was the last attempt before it ended up in the bin. Good bottle and size for day hikes but order some domestos with it. Its worth the effort and should last years saving more plastic ending up in landfill.
