When you think of water bottles, Nalgene is one of the brands that's sure to come to everyone's mind. Nalgene is a company that started in the 40s out of New York and stemmed from science, as the founder, Emanuel Goldberg, started the company after creating the first pipette jars. Emanuel initially called the company "Nalge" after his wife's initials (her name is Natalie Levey Goldberg). For nearly twenty years, Nalge remained as a company dominated by lab and science products, however, in the 60s, Nalge entered the outdoor world whenever a few of their more outdoorsy scientists took their leak-proof, lightweight bottles on a hike. In the 70s, the carry in/carry out principle of the outdoors was established, and with that Nalge has in high demand and Nalgene Outdoors was born. From there, Nalgene continues to make some of the best bottles on the market. With decades of experience, Nalgene is a brand that you can always trust to keep you hydrated, so don't forget to fill yours up before the next adventure.
