To have enough of water is extremely important. That is why we should always carry water container of volume at least 0.5 L. The answer is modern water bottles and canteens.   

As we all know, the body is able to survive without liquids for a maximum of three days. We need to replenish fluids throughout the day depending on our physical activity and the outside temperature. But how do we carry them ? What about water bottle or canteen ? This old fashioned method is highly effective. Some backpacks don´t have the possibility of CamelBag which is why the bottle or canteen is a must. Is there any difference ? There are both water containers so which one is better ? 

Good old water canteen 

Do you remember those old fashioned water containers ? Those are canteens. Canteen is practically slang word for field bottle. Such canteens were carried by soldiers before CamelBack was invented. They come in different sizes ( 1L, 0.7 L, 0.5 L, etc.). Original designs were made of metal tin-plated steel. As much as we think it is a good material, that is not completely true. Sheet metal was too thin and it wears quickly. Either way, these canteens lasted for a long time. Over time, protective coatings of various materials started to be placed on them, which extended their lifespan. These canteens were gradually replaced with plastic ones. Plastic was more likeable. Corrrosion resistant, more flexible and mainly much cheaper and easier to make. That is why modern canteens are plastic. However, you can still find those old-fashioned sheet metal flasks which certainly have their charm.

We all know bottle, right ? 

We thought we all knew a bottle. Although modern ways and unconventional designs could convince us the opposite. We can have standard plastic bottles or sport bottle from famous brand. For those, who would like to try something different we have companies that are step ahead. Modern designs along with technologies guarantee perfect features and visual feast for the eyes. For example Nalgene bottles. They differ little bit from the other bottles, which is their beauty. For example, they offer various caps, even those with straws. In general, the company is trying to offer something different, but is it better? To perfectly answer this question, we propably need to purchase one of those bottles. So what's the deal with water bottles and canteens ?

Which one ?

If we want to choose according to convenience, it will not be easy. Even canteen can offer convenient carry. It usually comes with a cover that features belt loops or clips for attachment. Opening is usually with twist off cup, which is similar to standard bottles. But what about those non-standard ? It is the convenience of drinking that makes the difference. Although you need a backpack, waist bag or cover for the bottles, they will reward with perfect materials and drinking comfort. Different straws and other modern adjustments are ideal. When choosing such bottles, always focus on material. Tin bottles are fine, problem might be with plastic bottles. Such bottles should not contain Bisfenol A, which is very harmful for us so watch out for that. The rest is about personal preferences. Whatewer we choose, we get perfect companion for our adventures.
