Materials Made from electro-polished, non-leaching, high-grade 18/8 stainless steel blended specifically for food preparation, dairy, brewing and various other applications where mineral migration is unacceptable. Plastics (polycarbonate) have been shown to leach carcinogens including BPA after cleaning and with regular use and exposure to heat.
Stainless steel is an iron-containing alloy made from some of the basic elements found in earth: iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon, nitrogen and manganese. Properties of the final alloy are tailored by varying amounts of these elements. There are more than 57 stainless steels recognized as standard alloys on the market.
Klean Kanteen® bottles are constructed from high-quality sanitary-grade 304 stainless steel, which has low nickel content. Stainless steel has excellent resistance to stain or rust due to its chromium content, making it a material of choice among the food processing, dairy and brewery industries.
Care Instructions Dishwasher safe or clean with bottle brush and mild soap Washing caps in the dishwasher is not recommended because H2O can squeeze into the cap
Tips Stainless steel does not rust. If your bottle appears to have rusted, it is a harmless residue left behind from the electro-polishing process. Electro charges remove fine particles from the stainless steel surface, remove impurities and seal it. Harmless electrolytes are left behind and sometimes turn a rust color.
Comments about Product:What delighted me most is the cap. The quality is way beyond my expectation. Solid, heavy duty, good seal (stainless on the inside where water can touch it), and a good solid thread. Nice solid loop for carrying, also (this is the standard cap).
I wanted the 40 oz. because 27 oz. is not quite enough for the work day. I debated between the regular mouth and the wide mouth, and decided on the wide because it would be easier to wash. But with the wide mouth I need to be careful when drinking in the car. The mouth is just wide enough that a small bump in the road causes water to spill down my neck.
The other thing I want to mention is that before ordering I was trying to judge how big around the 40 oz. bottle is. I checked the specs and compared the diameter to the diagonal of a square Fiji bottle. The Fiji bottle diagonal is larger than the Klean Kanteen diameter, so I figured no problem. But I didn't consider that my hand on a Fiji bottle is also gripping around the shorter cross section; consequently, the Klean Kanteen feels MUCH larger in my hand, and would probably be too big for women and others with smaller hands (mine are probably average).
Comments about Product:I looked everywhere for a 40oz stainless steel bottle and Kleen Kanteen was the only brand that had one. Reusable bags had the FASTEST shipping I could have hoped for, I got it in 3 days! Very happy with this purchase.
Comments about Product:The 40 Oz. Kleen Canteen SS bottle is perfect for longer trips away from home and with iced liquids. I especially like using it for smoothies, which I sip through the large glass straws one can also purchase on this site. The bottle's wide mouth makes it easy to clean and dry. I recommend getting the carrying sling for this bottle; it makes toting easier for women, whose smaller hands may not always grasp it securely, and for wet conditions. The sling also gives the bottle a bit more protection from scrapes and dings.
Comments about Product:I upgraded from the 27oz regular mouth Klean Kanteen to the wide mouth 40oz and I'm glad I did. It is so much easier to fill the wide mouth Kanteen with ice. I have a one of those BYO sleeve for it and my water stays cold for several hours. It would be nice to have a sports cap for it. But over all great product. Won't be going back to plastic.
Comments about Product:Just like the nalgene 1L, but this one actually carries about 5oz more. It's definitely a quality product, but if you put cold drinks in it, the stainless steel sweats immediately. But overall, I think this is a great alternative to the Nalgene. The only problem I see is the cap that comes with the bottle. It's a thick plastic cap and would be a tad difficult to clip onto things, especially without a caribiner. Based on that, I would consider the other cap offering with the metal D ring.

Comments about Product:Love the 40oz and 27oz bottles; not crazy about the 40oz lid....will search for other options you have for it. Great products; feel better about a non-leaching product! Thanks! Bob McNally

Comments about Product:I like the large water bottle - 40 oz, and I had ordered the sleeve that goes with it. That is great. I only wish that you had an option of tops, like a sports cap for this size. Otherwise it is great.
