Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Osprey NATO Water Bottle


Brand: Osprey
Weight: 214 g         108 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.

  This item is absolutely top drawer. With all the fakes on the market these days, it is a comfort to know one can obtain the genuine, time-tested article from Ray Mears. What's more, postage and shipping to the States was not only reasonable, but lightning quick. I highly endorse both the product and the vendor.

  Great item. Fits perfectly in the BCB NATO Crusader Cup, easy to hold. Made from thick plastic making it strong. Advised to purchase by my son who is a Royal Marine and has first hand experience.

  Arrived very quickly and well packaged. A good strong water bottle that'll last for years. I didn't expect it to be any other way to be honest, this is the Ray Mears shop after all, they don't sell junk. It's the genuine article just like the man himself, neither are fake. As for some reviews saying theres a plastic aftertaste, all I did was wash mine with warm soapy water and a bottle brush and rinse it out, job done. Well pleased, Thank you

  These Osprey NATO water bottle's are the real deal, I'm planning on using one of these bottles to always be in my backpack or inside my daypack, I will always have a liter of fluids and with the robust construction there's no worries about leakage, I'm really impressed with the quality. I'm not worried about these water bottles being crushed inside of a pack and leaking the contents, it is just a outstanding water bottle, highly recommend.

  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.
