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.
Weight: 3.9oz
Capacity: 650ml (22oz)
Dimensions: 2.8” wide 8.6” high
Material: Titanium

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.


  1. I have a hard time understanding some of the ultralight extremes. Once you strap on your pack, you and it become one entity. If you're trying to shed ounces, losing them from your body is going to be a better, more affordable option for most people.

  2. Seems to expensive to me for the purpose. Excellent review.
