The new Nalgene

The last of our Nalgene water bottles is in the trash. The lid somehow rested against the heating element in the dishwasher and melted. So I'm seeking a replacement.

I love these pretty Sigg water bottles. Lightweight, indestructable and won't leak = great for kids. Bonus: the bottle design is part of the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection. Goodbye Nalgene. Hello Sigg.

Assorted designs available here.

"Gabby, the Nalgene's are Bullet Proof!" Remember when I told you that and then Ralph the two year old broke it?

The SIGGs are cool, but I'm looking for a better alternative for a few reasons.

a) The paint peels off of the outside after heavy use.

b) They aren't coated on the inside, so the water tastes like aluminum when you leave it too long.

c) You have to hand wash the bottles. (The lids can go in the dishwasher though.)

The lid-melting thing happened to me a few weeks ago as well. Nalgenes are too tall to stick in the top rack of the dishwasher so you have to put them on the bottom and the lid slipped through and melted.

I was upset but now I know what to replace it with - a SIGG!

Nalgenes are far better than SiGGS anyday.
I drove over a Nalgene and it only suffered a minor dent which popped back out when I dropped it out a tree.
The SIGG dented straight away and could not be fixed.

This exact same thing happened to me today - my nalgene lid melted in the dishwasher and made my house smell like toxic fumes! goodbye Nalgene!
