Follower Freebie - Nalgene

Not quite four score, but it's been awhile since I've unloaded free junk.  We've done a microfiber diaper, friendship bracelet and Target dog.  The Target cards are impossible to hawk, so forget about it.

I drink lots of water, usually from a Nalgene bottle.  Lights on since 1949, they originally made dork-flasks for science labs.  Hikers and Boy Scouts soon discovered Nalgene useful for storing water or dry goods while camping, and the rest is history.

Still made in New York, leakproof and guaranteed for life, this factory fresh freebie is ready to bust a bladder.

  7. My years old Igloo insulated bottle just might be retired if I win. Nalgene always reminds me of my days doing lab work in one of my previous lives!

  33. I use nalagenes quite frequently, started with the old version plastic. i purchased a lid spout for the drink part to prevent any spillage and it was the best 3 bones i have ever spent. great warrantly too. also came in handy for the appalachian trail. my filteration system could hook up to the bottle no problem so i could pump fresh water.
