Plastic bottles make water taste like plastic.  
They breed microbes, get funky gunk in the
bottom, and leach carcinogens.

These stainless steel bottles are great.  They
are sturdy for a long tour and take boiling water
- we drink lots of green tea.  They come in two
sizes 27 oz. and 44 oz.

Rich often uses the 44 oz. bottle as a tea kettle
by placing it directly on the camp stove or
inserting a small electrical immersion heater.

The protector cap keeps road dirt from messing
up the bottle top.

These bottles have proven to
be one of the best purchases
we've made for the trip.  Six
months of constant use and
still going strong!
Southeast Asia Update:
Using the Klean Kanteen with an electrical immersion heater
The bottles work well with an
immersion water heater.  
In Cambodia Rich was hit by a tuk-tuk and
his water bottle was run over by the
motorcycle pulling the tuk-tuk.  Somehow it
survived with just a few dents! They add
character.
We use two MSR Dromedary bags to
carry extra water on hot days (this day in
Malaysia was over 100 degrees) and fill
our bottles from it.  Here Rich has
strapped his Drom bag from his front
pannier.  They are flexible and bulge for
the amount of the water being carried then
shrink flat when empty.  They are very
durable.
