My trusted standbys. Nalgene water bottles and Cantene bags in varying capacities.
It is a fact of life and a harsh reality of the backcountry, humans need water to survive and they need lots of water regularly to perform at peak levels.
Water is essential for the kind of things we do and hard to find in the places we do it so the containers we carry it in are just as important. I have been using Nalgene bottles and bags since 1990 and I am a very, very satisfied customer. They come in various sizes, don’t retain or pass along any tastes or smells, are almost indestructable and most important to me, they don’t leak. Not a drop which, as you can understand, is especially important when I am using my trusty pee bottle.
I know some people like the translucent hard bottles but I still like the original style opague, wide mouth, round top models in 32 or 48 ounce sizes. I also Like the Cantene bags for certain situations.
How much you carry is up to you and the circumstances but you absolutely have to have water and you can’t afford to let it leak out. I use and recommend Nalgene bottles and bags, they have never let me down.
