Steel and coating of the Primus TrailBottle S / S bottle body.
Food grade 18/8 stainless steel, from which the Primus TrailBottle S / S flask body is made, is one of the most common steels used in the manufacture of cookware and kitchen equipment. The first number 18, indicates the percentage of chromium in this steel, and the second 8 – nickel.
Steel 18/8 is resistant to various aggressive acids found in certain foods and beverages. It does not absorb odors, and there are no chemicals that can migrate to foods or drinks when it is heated. This steel is easy to clean, clean and disinfect..
The powder coating on the flask body seemed quite durable. At least, small impacts and drops to the ground from a small height, it is not afraid. Heating from the inside, when pouring boiling water into a bottle, transfers normally. For heating from the outside, from the flame of a burner or a bonfire, it was not checked. There was no such need. In addition, this slightly roughened powder coating makes hand grip good even when wet..
Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L.
On the design of the lid should stop separately. It is made from Tritan material, a plastic that does not contain toxic bisphenol-A (BPA-free). Thanks to a proprietary double seal closes the bottle securely. No fluid leaks detected.
The thread is large. Compatible with most screw-on water filters, such as MSR, and bottle accessories from other manufacturers. For example with the extremely common capCAP lid, filter for brewing tea and coffee H2jO! Coffee Filter and silicone non-spill cap.
The drinking cap is attached to the main cover on a rubber-plastic strap. This prevents him from getting lost, and also allows you to attach the flask itself to the backpack or hang it somewhere. Outside, the drinking cap is smooth. Its thread is inside the locking cap.
From the inside, the shape of the main cover and the cap cover, in the subjective opinion, is made unnecessarily complicated, with many ledges and transitions. There is no particular sense in such a decision. But to clean and wash the covers of plaque that has arisen during operation will be quite problematic. A poorly cleaned coating will inevitably give off odors or taste to the drink inside the flask..
Working and consumer qualities of the Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L camp bottle.
On the whole, the Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L camp bottle is undoubtedly more convenient than aluminum and plastic jars with a wide neck, similar in volume and purpose. Stainless steel is stronger than aluminum or plastic, and much easier to maintain. When washing from the inside, the steel is less scratched. As a result, fewer minor micro-scratches, which means fewer plaque collection sites..
In the cold season, unlike plastic bottles such as Nalgene, for example, there is no need to fill the Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L bottle with boiling water in two doses. So that its walls do not crack due to a sharp temperature difference. In plastic bottles, it was first necessary to fill them with boiling water 1-1.5 centimeters from the bottom and warm the walls by shaking. And then fill with boiling water to the top.
However, even a Primus TrailBottle S / S flask that is not completely filled with boiling water or a very hot drink immediately begins to create problems. It becomes impossible to hold in her hand. Walls are so quickly and strongly heated. But there is a solution to the problem. For such cases, it’s enough to use any suitable neoprene case along with the bottle.

Camping Bottle Accessories Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L.
As already mentioned, for Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L, almost all accessories for other bottles with the same neck diameters of 63 mm are suitable, which has become almost the world standard. Of these accessories available, we can say with confidence that the following are suitable for Primus TrailBottle S / S:
Standard Nalgene Plastic Bottle Cap.
Nalgene MultiDrink Bottle Cap. At the same time, the tube turned out to be a bit long and slightly abuts the bottom.
CapCAP cover by Humangear inc. It seemed more convenient than the standard.
Silicone cap spill. It makes drinking from a wide throat more convenient. Allows you to fill the bottle with liquid without removing it.
GSI Filter Outdoors H2jO! Coffee Filter for brewing tea, coffee, herbal infusions.
Primus TrailBottle S / S 0.6 L Camping Bottle General Experience.
In general, more than positive. The new 2017 from the company Primus failed. Especially against the background of her past camping bottles and flasks made of anodized aluminum. Finally, the company’s engineers and marketers listened to the wishes of users and made a more or less universal product..
The Primus TrailBottle S / S bottle turned out to be more convenient and practical than the 0.6 L Nalgene MultiDrink bottle used before. However, the standard cap will most likely be replaced with a capCAP cap from Humangear inc. Not only because it is more familiar, but also because the standard cover does not provide reliable sealing when used with an H2jO filter! Coffee Filter due to higher thread.
Some concern is the powder coating. However, even if it crackles or pushes away from inevitable bumps or falls, except for the appearance that has changed for the worse, this does not threaten a bottle. And so, of course, this blue, closer to blue, colored coating of the surface makes the bottle of Primus TrailBottle S / S much more attractive in appearance and more fun, or something.
A minor drawback is the opacity of the walls of the bottle and, as a consequence, the lack of a measuring scale. It has become so familiar on transparent plastic bottles. To some extent, this makes it difficult to determine the volume of the remaining liquid. Or its dosing when pouring. For example, when brewing dry cereals or instant soups in bags.
