Vargo Titanium Water Bottle with Lid - Preview
Today we are previewing the Vargo Titanium Water Bottle with Lid.
Vargo Titanium Water Bottle with Titanium lid
I have seen them a bit cheaper on the net though.
LID : Foldaway carry loop with silicon ring around the top of the lid.
Capacity: 650ml (22oz)
Dimensions: 2.8” wide 8.6” high
One thing that I have noticed is that the product details are inconsistent when it comes to Vargo’s descriptions.
Their site says that the bottle with lid weighs 3.9oz. The box that the bottle comes in says that it weighs 4.6oz
On my scale the products weighs 3.9oz.
Expensive even though this is made of Titanium.
There are stainless steel water bottles that are almost identical which weight 3 oz more but cost in some cases $60 less!
With a product like this you have to ask yourself, is saving a few oz with your water bottle work such a steep price.
Pros: Very light weight. Can be used over a wood fire to boil water from what I have read.
Cons: I don’t mind the lid but I HATE screwing the lid in and securing it. It’s like scratching your nails down a chalk board. If there was any dirt or sediment in the threads it would be a nightmare.
