    Finish looks rough and that looks like a .5l bottle...

    Better than I would make though and no effort. I was looking for something like this last year and they were all "tactical' and weighed a ton. Looks like a 600ml smart water bottle to me.

    I thought it was, a bit naff... o_O

    Better option :
    Treadlite gear water bottle holder

    I'm using two of Pauls for the AT. Hold a 500ml Nalgene in one and an Arto Life 750ml in the other:

    Why also Nalgene bottle?

    Just curious, because I often carry a protein shaker to for electrolyte mixes and morning protein shakes.

    I wonder which one's lighter.

    I switched to a Gatorade bottle in the US - had a Nalgene copy. Heavy. Gatorade wide mouth enough for mixes (if that's what you are after)

    It's the HDPE version, I have the 1 litre but it's staying in the UK.

    The 500 ml Nalgene weighs 73g empty and the 750 ml Arto Life 37g.

    I'll use it for hot water bottle/dry damp clothing at night on the AT in Feb and for an extra brew to get me started in the mornings.

    It's a crucial item for me. My diabetes and high BP require me to keep extremities in tip top condition.

    A Nalgene is the only one I trust for a hot water bottle/hot coffee bottle. An HDPE Nalgene will take boiling water with no fear of splitting open or needing an oil wrench to undo the top again.

    It's great to pack the tent away with a boiling hot Nalgene full of coffee in your jacket. 'Morning stake fingers' are instantly cured.

    That was my thinking as well Pete, after my box of hand warmers failed in Norway that time I'll be sticking to the Nalgene. :D

    Sounds sensible for you.
    You're starting the AT very early?

    I booked Feb 18th, but fly out on the 11/12th so If I get to the start point early I might start before that.

    Needs must, I have to attempt it in 2 stages, I have to fly back to the UK for a month in June, resupply with drugs, reassure my Relatives I'm still alive and ditch my winter kit for summer kit. Back out again July until end of Oct when the route shuts.

    I'll get as far as I can in the two visits and call it done.
