I like the wide mouth nalgene bottles. I have several pieces of gear that screw directly onto the bottle. Two that get the most use are my MSR miniworks filter and MSR hydration tube setup. I also like the ease of cleaning these bottles. They also have soft sided canteen bottles that reduce the weight when needed.

But Iím a sloppy drinker from these bottles when hiking on the trail. Iíve tried other solution like those little insert you can buy. They kind of work but have some draw back. Taking them out on the trail with grubby hands just makes them dirty. Then you have another price of loose ďcleanĒ gear you have to be careful of. And the one I had retained the flavor of a mixed drink.

In steps the Human Gear capCAP. It has 2 caps, a large one that threads perfectly onto the wide mouth bottle and a small one for you to drink from. It just works and works well. Also the small cap is rubberized which makes gripping the cap easier. The last part is the strap which is a little wider and the edges are nicely rounded which makes it easier to hold. These are also PBA free.

All in all itís a great add on. Check it out here:

Ha, you beat me to it :) the capCAP is a must have if you own a Nalgenes bottle and it also fits the Nalgene Guyot stainless steel bottle.

I've been using one for about a year now and it has held up great. Required bit o kit for Nalgene users.

I just got one about a month ago. It's a smart product and works well. I like it.:D

I'm right there with you guys http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/2803/thumbup6ly.gif

It's the best accessory ever for the Nalgene bottles since the nesting cup. I have them on my Guyots and Nalgenes.

I'm so relieved to find out I'm not the only person that can't drink and walk without sloshing water down the front of them.

I love this item. In fact it was one of the first items I reviewed when I started my new blog late last year...

Here is my take on it >> Humangear capCAP (http://www.dadofalltrades.com/?p=81)

Yeah I also have a few of these. I really like them.

They fit the Klean Kanteen widemouth as well. A bit leaky if you don't get them just right, gonna see if one of the o-rings from my guyot lid fits the capcap and if it does that should solve the occasional leaks of my Klean Kanteens.

I use them and love them. But I wish they had some other colors to choose from. Maybe something more subdued.
