Product Description
If you’ve spent much time on the trail, you know that the old standard for water transportation is the classic Nalgene, but what if you could switch out that old piece of plastic for a titanium model with almost half the weight? Boasting an empty weight of only 3.9 oz and solid enough to withstand any camp calamity, the Vargo Titanium Water Bottle with Ti Lid brings your water receptacle up to same level as the rest of your gear Read More

The nalgene 32oz widemouth HDPE comes in at 3.75oz and $7.33 on Amazon ... hard to justify needing this

I do love titanium. I own two Ti road-bikes and lots of Ti backpacking cookware. In fact, I love Ti so much that I had a big rod of it installed in my shoulder. Okay, that really wasn't a choice I made. But here, for the price, volume and weight, I'll stick to my Kleen Kanteens, Hydrapak Stash bottles, Nalgenes, etc.. Just a tough one to justify for me.

Just my 2 cents, I have this bottle since 2015 and I can recommend it without reservation. I use it every day without exception, I fill it usually twice a day from my water filtering system, and I carry it with me everywhere, in a backpack, messenger bag, car, in a rucksack to forest hike or snowmobile ride. It fits in the largest pockets of my winter parka. The bottle has gone through a lot, and shows no sign of real wear. I truly expect it to last my lifetime, maybe need to replace the silicon seal one day, probably because I will loose it after cleaning the bottle. I also have Klean Kanteen bottles, 27 and 64 oz, I like them a lot, but if I had to leave the Vargo 650ml bottle home, I would take my Vargo Bot 900ml rather than the Klean Kanteen 27oz. The KK27 is clearly heavier and bulkier, also top heavy, therefore slightly more likely to tip over. If I only carried it once in a while, the weight difference would not necessarily justify the price difference. But as a daily use item it is absolutely worth it for me, I am very happy with my purchase! **EDIT February 2019: The pop rivets holding the carrying handle failed after four years of daily use. It is easy to fix, I just need to find the smallest possible rivets, or drill the rivet holes slightly larger. I haven't done it yet because I don't need the handle for anything. For my use the functionality is 100% there, and I am still completely happy with my purchase. ***EDIT June 2019: Fixed the rivets, easy job. I got the smallest rivets from the hardware store and drilled the holes a tiny bit larger. Works like new.

I just weighed one of my generic Nalgenes.: 3.8 ounces (vs. 4.1 ounces) Its capacity is greater than 900 ml. (vs. 550 ml.) I paid $4.49 US at The Container Store. Titanium is cool and all, but really?

I understand (wikipedia) that titanium alloy has a thermal conductivity of 5.8 W/mK vs stainless steel at around 20 W/mK... I am trying to justify spending $90 CAD on a waterbottle here... so help me out... :) Does this matter in practice with a titanium alloy bottle such as the Vargo? Otherwise I see no great benefit to the Ti alloy and cost. Granted the Ti bottle is 1/2 the weight saving around 100-150g. However compared to the water it carries, this is not significant. In terms of objective benefits the only other benefit I can see is possibly thermal conductivity, the ability to keep the liquid either cool or warm longer compared to stainless steel? considering the thin wall of water bottles, I'd like to know if this is a significant enough benefit of Ti over steel to be worth the additional cost of 2x-3x. thanks.

Titanium actually has a very slightly higher specific heat than stainless steel, requiring more energy to raise its temperature. The thermal conductivity refers to how fast it conducts heat, so titanium would conduct much slower. If the fluid in the titanium changes temperature faster, it is due to it being substantially thinner.

It really depends on how thin the titanium is compared to the stainless steel bottle. Any plain single wall water bottle is so thin that it would not insulate well at all, with a slight edge going to the titanium only if it is the same thickness as the steel bottle.

In case anyone is wondering, it's made of TITANIUM.

According to Vargo's FAQ on their website, they use pure titanium (so likely grade 1, nothing is chemically 100%). Are you sure that titanium alloys are cheaper to machine though? The primary purpose of alloying titanium is to make it stronger and harder, which generally causes more heat and greater tool wear during machining. Pure titanium has excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility, but that's about it's only advantage over Ti alloys.

According to Vargo's FAQ on their website it's pure titanium and not an alloy

Does anybody know if I can put this bottle in a camp fire? (without the lid, of course...)

I have this bottle and yes you can. I often throw this in a campfire to heat water for tea. I also added some wire around the neck to hang over a fire. Good tough little bottle.
