After more than 30 years of doing this, you can only imagine how many bottles I’ve bought and tested. Many branded ‘specialist outdoor’ gear and therefore expensive.
Sometimes I get sent products to test – including many bottles – which are extremely good at what they do, but they can come at a shocking price. I recently had one that cost almost £70. That’s an awful lot of money just to contain water which, let’s face it, is all you’re asking a bottle to do.
I bought this Sistema bottle for six quid last week from Tesco, and it’s the best I’ve ever used.
70cl, flexible, no gimmicky twist-and-pop caps or unnecessary straws. Just a straight-forward bottle with a great seal. If you need to, you can even invert the shoulder cap, stuff it with spagnum moss, and use it as a makeshift filter.
Superb bit of kit!
