Thanks to Wagner and Oehlmann I now know not to keep my New Zealand mud snails in plastic bottles.
Now where did I put that saccharin?

Me and my treasured children still use our original Nalgene 32 oz. bottles. I've seen no reason to stop using them.

If the nearly impossible happens and they break - or the more likely happens and they get lost - then I'll probably replace them with the new stuff.

I am with Blast. I have seen enough contradictory evidence on the nets and in some science circles that I don't buy the BPA hype.

I think in part this was a created to market an old product as new, to reinvent the relevance of an industry. Plastics have been losing market share to Sigg, Kleen Kanteen, et al, and creating the hype that the 'evil' plastics being used are just as 'green' an industry.

Remember there is a clear anti-plastic bent out there. In San Francisco you cannot get plastic bags at grocery stores now, only paper bags. Competitors of Nalgene type bottles will give you study after study of how metals are superior in quality, taste and durability.

We all know that older Nalgene bottles will hold taste, but I can still buy them 4:1 on a Sigg.

When I heard that Nalgenes were being pulled, I went out and got a lifetime supply from a local sporting goods store. Enough for my kids too.

Love them Nalgenes!

That whole trip was a late night, and as you know I needed to get home. The GSD's needed a teeth cleaning......
