Nalgene Sippy Cup

I didn't realize that Nalgene made a sipper cup until we babysat our neigbor's little boy about a year ago and he came with one. It was an alumni sipper cup from the college we were attending and then I noticed it had nalgene's logo on it. I was curious but never got one. I got one a few weeks back for each of the boys.


I couldn't put it better than they did on the Nalgene site so here is their description:
We’ve taken on Everest. Now we’re ready for toddlers! Nalgene containers have stood up to some of the worlds most extreme conditions. Small potatoes compared to small children. The new Nalgene Grip'n Gulp™ is tough enough to survive being thrown form a moving minivan, spill proof enough to compel parents to blame the rug stains on the dog, and odor proof enough to allow leftover milk to go undetected under the couch for months. Most importantly, its a great way for little kids to reach new heights.
  • Side indents are easy for tiny hands to grasp
  • Rubberized lid and smooth plastic mouthpiece make drinking comfortable
  • Superior threading on cup and lid is engineered to prevent spills
  • Durable TritanTM resists odors, stains, and residue
  • Cup, lid, and removable sipper valve are all top rack dishwasher safe
  • Lid loop can be clipped to backpack, diaper bag, or stroller
  • Twelve-ounce cup is compatible with OTG, ATB, and wide-mouth closures
  • This bottle is manufactured from Eastman Tritan TM copolyester that is manufactured without BPA
  • The recycling code on this product is #7, that means other.
Enough said - I couldn't agree more. I love the fact that it resists odor, stains, & residue. I also love the lid loop and how durable this product is. You can also buy replacement valves but we haven't had that problem yet. They also come in 4 super cute colors! I haven't had any problems with them leaking but we haven't had the cups very long. I will update this post after we have had them a while.

Cons: I can't find any!

Price: $9.25 + Shipping

Where to Buy: Nalgene Site

RATING: Excellent (As far as I can tell!)

Cool, a little pricey, but still cool. My favorite comment is about the milk and being under the couch undetected. I just think it's funny a manufacturer would say that. It must be good then!

Sounds great!! I'll definitely have to check those out.

This is my favorite sippy cup! I got one on campus at DMU, and it is the only one that is 100% spill proof. I would pay the money any day for it. I have used it for almost a year, and it still does not leak! It is worth the money becuase you never have to replace the valves!

Wow that is so cool.

These sound really neat, but how we go through sippy-cups (getting dirty I mean) I'm not sure if I have the money to buy enough to keep us stocked between dishwasher trips.
