    Default Evernew collapsible bottles

    Any one use these bottles or the Nalgene ones. The Evernew (found them on End2End trail supply-- https://www.end2endtrailsupply.com) bottles are lighter than Gatorade bottles and I am not sure if it's good to keep refilling Gatorade bottles. Though I do switch out the Gatorade bottles when ever I have the chance. Please give me your opinion of the collapsible type bottles.

    I carry both. A gatorade bottle I find helpful when scooping water. The collapsbile ones are tough to fill. But I use them as well for water storage at camp.

    I just did a video on my Platy Softbottle and my Nalgene collapsible cantene. Check it out here:

    I use an Evernew but its kind of difficult to clean. I agree with you about refilling Gatorade bottles...BPA and they get nasty, but you can keep buying new ones and they come with a free drink!

    Its nice to have a collapsible to stick in your pack for carrying extra water to camp for cooking and cleaning.

    I use platypus bags and honestly have never carried anything resembling a water bottle. I just use my cooking pot or coffee mug to scoop up water if necessary. There's a lot of versatility there. With the water tube I don't have to stop to rehydrate, an put on a click type sports cap for in tent water and never have to worry with volumous empty bottles.
    No man should go through life without once experiencing healthy even bored solitude in the wilderness, finding himself depending solely on himself and thereby learning his true and hidden strength.
