        Dropped mine off the top of a 6-7 foot ladder at work to concrete and the thing shattered. Still use them because the plastic is better. But they’re not indestructible.

              This is not scientific. There’s no control.

                I think they use to be stronger in the BPA days, as I've even driven over my old one my accident and it didn't break. I think if it wasn't full of water it may have done better, not sure.

                    plastics leech into the water that make you gay. Buy the stainless ones.

                                        Disappointing test. No control. Using the same bottle for different tests. Overly casual for testing something to destruction. List goes on.

                                          In boot camp, this guy across the way from me dropped his backpack with his nalgene in it and some how it hit the deck just right and cracked and then soaked his backpack and leaked everywhere. It was only about a 4ft drop and it was cushioned by the backpack. Since then I've had numerous nalgenes that have been tough as nails.

                                            I have dropped mine multiple times and it's all scuffed up but still intact. My previous one broke because I wasn't aware you aren't supposed to put them in the freezer. Whoops. Lesson learned, I guess. 😏

                                                I dropped a silo from waist height and it got a 3 inch hole in it

                                                  I shot a hole in mine and Nalgene sent me another. Always order them directly from their website to avoid knockoff CHINA made toxic plastics and inferior carcinogenic stainless steel.

                                                        One thing you didn't take into account is the stress that the previous drops put on the bottle before it broke. You should try dropping one from the 3rd floor that hadn't been previously dropped. You should also try different levels of water, like 3/4 and 1/2 full.

                                                          Ted Willis easy to say you thought of that but either way your video/test is flawed!

                                                          Problem with that is are you going to drop a bottle only once as well as being a hardened plastic it's prone to breakage especially depending where it hits. Landing on it's side is what allowed it to survive as long as it did.

                                                        I've had them for years, dropped them way too many time to count. Then one day one of mine rolled off the top of my car and broke. Hit up Nalgene and they sent me a free replacement. So even if it does finally give out they will stand behind their product. Good stuff.
