I’m pretty new to the board so I hope this isn’t something that came up in the past, but I haven’t seen anything about it in some searches so …
It seems a lot of us on DIY use Nalgenes for carting our Soylent around, but I’ve always found the wide mouth of the Nalgene to be kind of annoying. Living in the desert you end up with a variety of water bottles and a week or so ago I realized that a flip-top from one of my other bottles has the same threads, and it’s a much better drinking-from-the-bottle experience.
So I did some searching as it turns out you can get them by themselves on the amazon.
It isn’t a great lid if you’re going to be throwing your bottle around or tossing it in your bag on it’s side (because it can pop open), but the flip top makes it a lot more convenient and less awkward than taking sips from the Nalgene rim. The opening is more like a spout so it pours and drinks from easily, but is wide enough to not get gunked up from the oat flour in my blend. It also isn’t a hassle to clean like the models that come with straws and other unnecessary parts. HUGE improvement over the standard Nalgene lid in my opinion.
Just figured I’d share that discovery while we all wait for our Soylent to ship.
