My Life Time first Nalgene Water bottles

Nalgene water bottles, all along this consider as a 'Atas' (high class) items for me. Although I always want one of this. Who will going to spend over SGD25-30 just to get a plastic water bottle. Thats what I always asking myself.
Today while I tried to get my watch fix (the suunto Quest strap spoilt again), I visited one of the outdoor shop around the corner (Sports Connections Pte Ltd), guess what I found? The 1 litre (32Oz) Nalgene bottles selling in discounted price. Usual SGD22 now in SGD17. While I am checking the colours and busy texting wanter, I observed the small sign on the cashier, then I asked the counter uncle. Ooh, passion card holder additional 10%. Meaning in order to pay SGD22 I just need to pay SGD15.30 !!! What else? If you have citibank card, you can earn 5% of citi dollars. So I decided to buy two. One the clear pink for myself and another is wantet favourite colour (she lost her 400ml same colour that she bought from Hong Kong last year during her backpack trip in Cambodia, some other backpacker stole it and shameless show the bottle in front of her as well).

Here is the bottle specs:

  • BPA-Free
  • High impact resistance
  • Resistant to staining
  • Won’t retain odors
  • Withstands sub-freezing to boiling temperatures
  • Dishwasher safe away from the heating element
  • 179 Grams, 3 1/2 Inches Diamater, 8 1/2 Inches tall
  • Max temperature: 100°C/212°F
  • Min temperature: -40°C/-40°F
  • (specs get from the website)

I am quite happy to get touch on the Nalgene bottles. Last year I got one from a race registration. In the booth they put on the sign register and get a 1litre nalgene water bottle. So I signed up, after I got home and snapped some photo to wanter she told me its not nalgene as no sign on the cap and the bottle printed make in china. I was so sad that time and feel that I had been cheated. How can such a big company in town putting up such a false ads. Just like when you want to brush your teeth and someone told you, I have colgate but but handed you some other brand. Maybe they thought that any wide mouth plastic bottles is call Nalgene without knowing Nalgene is a brand, not the name of the item.

Original Nalgene will have the logo printed on the top of the cap and its made in USA
Below is the one I got from the race signup here in Singapore. The cap is plain with no sign and its Made in China. I hope the organiser will not put on the same false advertisement for this year in their sign up booth. I was thinking to get a Nalgene bottle even the race fee is high compare with previous year still worth the value. But its not that case.
