I tried this out looking for a tougher Nalgene replacement for climbing and mountaineering. The plastic collar on the lid came off one bottle rendering it useless, and the taste is not as good as other metal bottles. In my mind bad tasting water is not only unpleasant, but may be a sign of something you'd rather not drink in the water (paranoia - likely). The lack of durability and improved taste eliminate the two main reasons to go with a metal bottle. I'd recommend a Kleen Kanteen or Sigg. I prefer the KK for it's wider mouth, but Sigg bottles tend to be more durable, both bottle and lid.
