Rated 5 out of 5 by spikebirder Larger sized wide-mouth Nalgene is very practical
I love the larger size, it's great having another option. I use wide-mouth nalgene primarily for food storage. I carry dry cereal with me as a staple on trips, so this is a good size for that. I fill it up for the start of the trip, and that amount will last me quite a long time, and it keeps out dampness and humidity. When I'm done, I have a good sized extra water bottle or storage for other food. The product quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CalistogaKid Gave it 5 stars despite not being perfect
I've been using this bottle for the past 6 months and have been very satisfied with it despite a few minor flaws. As some others have written, I find the fact that I had to unscrew the top to drink is a draw back. I was able to solve this by replacing the top with one from a $1.99 plastic drinking bottle we happened to have and was no longer being used. That one has a flip top that snaps closed. It can flip open unexpectedly if I'm not careful
so I may eventually splurge for an OTF lid. I also wish an affordable carry with a shoulder strap was available. Someone from Bean kindly suggested a holder from Maxpedition but I could buy at least 4 bottles for the cost of the holder so for now I carry it to and from my car in a plastic shopping bag. At least it does (barely) fit in my car's cup holder.

I love the bigger size. It is perfect for what our family needs. I ended up buying 3 more and sent one to a friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AandWReviews Water Bottle
Nice sized bottle. The amount of water that it holds met my needs perfectly. The strap on the lid is very flimsy. You may be inclined to try to hold bottle by connection strap and that will probably end in disaster.

The 48 oz. Nalgene is great to store spring water.Also handy to carefully freeze the water in this size, place it in a cooler for trips, and later to be consumed when liquid.Can be used in conjunction with 500ml bottles, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kas5736 Holds lots of water!
I bought this water bottle as a Christmas gift. We have other Nalgene bottles, but they are wide and do not fit into the cup holder in the car. Also, they do not hold as much water as this one. I am excited to give it as a present!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EP1978 Great purchase!
I've bought many water bottles over the years, but the sheer size of this one is great. It's a great motivator to get me to drink the water that I'm supposed to be drinking, and the lid assures me that my cats won't knock it over causing a massive mess with the massive amount of water that this thing can hold.
I'm a fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tamgreg great quality, thickness, and water capacity
I love this water bottle because my doctor recommends drinking 8 glasses of water a day and this holds 48oz. so you don't even realize you are drinking that much because once you fill it up you will constantly drink it all. The bottle is great to drink out of , I thought it would be hard because of the wide opening but it is easy and the rim is a thick comfortable plastic. The bottle is great I love the thickness of the bottle, the lid, the quality, and the size. I would recommend it. and also it is made in the USA.
