MEC www.mec.ca has them, GSI and Bilt I believe are the manufacturers. The problem with the GSI one (I have it) is that it is a plastic lid, and to suspend over a fire it would be a bit trickier, although steel wire would work.

These seem wide enough for filling, cleaning, ice cubes, cooking smaller pieces (bugs? grin), etc.

Is the problem that they don't match the standard Nalgene size thread that many water filters use?

Have one of these made by Guyot Designs on my Christmas list: "63mm mouth works with wide mouth water purifiers & accessories." The tethered reinforced nylon lid is removable. Two other "models" carried by EverestGear.com .
