    And if it breaks, they'll replace it for free!

    I have 3 at home (not really mine, actually), and I've seen at least two other people at school who have one. It's really quite funny when you're having lunch with a group of friends and a number of them have the same water bottle as yours.

Sales immediately skyrocketed and now the company sells almost exclusively water bottles.
    Wow, that's an interesting story - I never knew they were that expensive though.

    Yeah. The company used to make chemical storage containers for places like labs and factories. At an executive board meeting, they handed out these waterbottles, which were a mini version of their products. Everyone liked them so much that they decided to sell them.

    I have a funny Nalgene story...

    I was camping in a field one night and I woke up around 2:00am to take a sip of water. I immediately start getting bitten by ants all over my hand and around my mouth. It was the most awful thing to happen. I spiked the bottle like a football to knock the ants off, moved my sleeping bag and went back to sleep.

    It's probably not just useful as a water bottle, for the $15 you can use the product as a soup carrier, a inconspicuous hip flask, a piggy bank and the article also has a use for the publicly irreverent.

    Btw ScreamingEmu, love the festive pic

    They are about $9 if you get a good deal.

    Anyway, they are'nt indestructable. I've seen them break using only a rope and a tree.

    Mine says Yale on it and it has an "If it aint Boeing, I'm not going!" sticker.

    there is no way in hell that I'm going to pay $15+ for a freaking water bottle. I've had the same water bottle that I use for hockey that's been hit by so many pucks and its still ticking...cost me $3
