There are a few reasons I ditched Nalgene for steel water bottles:

Modified Nalgene Stainless Steel Bottle to Cook Water

Stainless steel is often longer lasting than plastic, but most plastics can easily be recycled. Both types of water bottles offer you the ability to replace lost lids without purchasing an entirely new bottle. You may find that your personal preferences are the most important consideration when choosing between a Nalgene and steel water bottle, as both are great options. One more thing to consider—with either type, if you expect to experience extreme cold weather, you should choose a wide-mouth version because it allows you to break up any ice that forms at the mouth of the bottle.

Stainless Steel - Nalgene Water Bottles

The Stainless Steel Bottle Hanger is great for hanging a stainless steel bottle over a fire by inserting it into the mouth of the bottle and then releasing. The tension of the spring will hold it in the bottle neck. It will work with all single wall Klean Kanteens, the Pathfinder 32 oz. Stainless Bottle, and Stainless Steel Canteens (It does not securely hold a Nalgene Stainless Steel Bottle). When squeezed together and hooked on itself, it takes up little room in your pack (Bottles in photo NOT included).

Question: Do metal bottles contain BPA?
Answer: Because aluminum is susceptible to corrosion, aluminum bottles utilize liners made with epoxy resins that may contain BPA. Nalgene does not sell aluminum bottles. In contrast, stainless steel bottles, including Nalgene Stainless Steel bottles, do not use liners of any kind and therefore do not contain BPA.
