Nalgene Adds “Squeeze” Bottle to Line of Durable Reusable Containers

New DRAFT Fitness Bottle Offers Soft, Easy-Squeeze
Hydration for Biking and On-the-Go Pursuits

ROCHESTER, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nalgene Outdoor, best known for its line of durable and practical
wide-mouth reusable bottles, introduces an extension to its diverse line
of products. Today, the premier reusable water bottle company launches
the Nalgene DRAFT bottle, a 22-ounce easy-to-squeeze, “soft”
bottle with spout-style cap for fitness activities and cycling.


This new bottle, with its easy-to-dispense squeeze design is ideal for
cyclists who need a sleek and easy-to-handle bottle while riding. It
also appeals to those whose workouts or adventures require on-the-go,
in-the-moment hydration, or to those who prefer a “squeeze and shoot”
drinking style. Lightweight and made to fit in bike cages, cup holders,
backpack sleeves and various exercise equipment, the DRAFT bottle,
like all of Nalgene’s reusable containers, is ready to go and durable,
making it ideal to take almost anywhere – from the bike trail to the
soccer field to the treadmill.

“The introduction of Nalgene’s DRAFT bottle is in direct response
to our customers’ evolving needs and active lifestyles,” says Eric
Hansen, director of Nalgene Outdoor products. “The same
highly-engineered design process and quality assurance measures that
produced Nalgene’s iconic ‘hard’ bottles and storage containers also
went into the creation of our DRAFT bottle. We’re thrilled to add
this offering to our already strong lineup of products.”

All components and manufacturing lots of the DRAFT bottle were
tested by outside labs. The DRAFT bottle offers several unique
qualities:

  • Soft, Squeeze Bottle with Spout-Style Cap – Allows for easy
    “squeeze and shoot” drinking while preventing splatters or spills.
  • Leakproof Design – Easy on/off “twist to lock” mechanism on cap
    helps prevent leaks.
  • Easy-to-Stow Design – Fits bike cages, cup holders, exercise
    machines and backpack pockets.
  • Fits Ice Cubes/ Freezer Friendly – Wide mouth opening
    accommodates ice cubes. Bottle can safely go in freezer to chill or
    freeze liquids.
  • Easy-to-Clean – Dishwasher-safe, top rack only.
  • Lifetime Warranty – Replacement available if bottle breaks.
  • BPA- and BPS-Free

The Nalgene DRAFT bottle is available online at www.nalgene.com
at an MSRP of $10.99. Bottle capacity is 22 ounces and current color
choices include natural, green, purple and berry.

Samples, product photos and lifestyle photos are available upon request.
