Damn, this is cool

If you do much outdoors, you’ve probably encountered the Cult of the Nalgene by now. Their polycarbonate (Lexan) bottles are an article of faith, able to handle boiling water, non-odor-absorbing, cheap, and incredibly tough. I still have one from more years ago than I care to remember.

Anyway. Where was I? Oh yeah, senile.

So Nalgene is cool. What else is cool? Nerd cool?

Yep, LED lights. Combine the two, and damn! I want one. Variable brightness, from dim to reading light, and it diffuses through the water instead of adding a lens.

If you’re going hiking, this is a total no-brainer. If they cost less ($22), I’d have ordered a couple already. I’m only hesitating because it’s poor form to self-gift less than two weeks from SWMBOs birthday, but I’m sure as hell adding it to the gift registry.
