The use of the Nalgene MultiDrink bottle is possible in a wide temperature range from minus 40 to plus 100 degrees. This provides the opportunity to both freeze water in it, and brew your favorite drink with freshly boiled water. The logo of the company and a measuring scale marked in milliliters and ounces are applied to the bottle body. Almost the world standard, the 63 mm filler neck with the unified bottle thread Nalgene MultiDrink is compatible with many products from other manufacturers.
For example, with water filters from MSR and Katadyn. And also with many optional accessories. For example capCAP cap, H2jO filter! Coffee Filter, etc. The large filler neck of the Nalgene MultiDrink bottle allows you to put ice into it, use it as a container for various products, or even for NAZ. Facilitates the process of pouring boiling water, cleaning and washing the inner surfaces.
Nalgene MultiDrink Bottle Cap Device.
The Nalgene MultiDrink bottle is equipped with a rather unusual cap that allows you to drink liquid in two different modes. In addition, a durable plastic hinge for carrying or hanging the bottle is built into the lid. In the first version, you can drink from a MultiDrink bottle by unscrewing the top 28 mm cap. In the second, through the outer tip of the drinking tube. He is in a stowed position hiding inside the lid. It is the second option that is, the so-called one-armed.
To bring the drinking tip from the stowed position to the working position, it must be removed from the stopper and turned outward along the axis to the stop. All these actions can be freely done with one hand. In intermediate positions, the tip will not work well or will not work at all. Since a rotary faucet is mounted inside it.
Another part that ensures the flow of water through the inner tube into the outer tip is a simple check valve. It regulates the pressure inside the bottle. And this particular detail is what is called a fly in the ointment.
Perhaps due to the fact that Nalgene engineers overlooked something in the design. Perhaps the reason is the materials used, but the fact remains. Some time after the start of use, when turning upside down, in some bottles this valve starts to leak. Thus depriving a bottle of Nalgene MultiDrink tightness and creating problems for users. About this critical shortcoming that is rarely found in a rather convenient and practical bottle, MultiDrink is written even in product reviews on the page of the company’s official website. In general, during exploitation in the city and outdoors, the MultiDrink bottle showed itself only on the most positive side.
