Barebones Canteen

Oct 17, 2017

Category: Gear

Broadly speaking, most all hikers and backpackers have moved on from canteens to insulated water bottles and plastic Nalgenes. But there are still a few brands out there who have kept that old-school style alive by infusing it with new technology. Take the Barbones Canteen for instance.

While this may look like an old canteen, it actually features a totally modern build. Thanks to the double insulated walls, this all-black bottle can keep cold water cool and hot drinks warm for the entire day. In addition to the handsome build and the insulated construction, this canteen also boasts a cap that doubles as a drinking cup and an adjustable cotton shoulder strap for easy carry while hiking. Who said you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Purchase: $60
