About this deal

We’ve all been there before with wide mouth bottles. You’re taking a drink and tilt the bottle just a bit too far and water comes pouring out from around your mouth. The lineup of Contigo lids are three more great options that are cross-compatible with wide mouth Nalgene Bottles. This is one of the reasons my youngest son always chooses the narrow mouth Nalgene over the wide mouth to take to school. But I personally prefer the wide mouth because it's easier to clean and easier to put ice into. The classic Nalgene lid works great and is really easy to use and easy to clean. But, if you're anything like me, you might want to upgrade your Nalgene lid from time to time and have something more than just the basic screw on cap. While Contigo doesn’t appear to sell replacement lids, their lids work flawlessly with Nalgene Bottles if you happen to already have them.

Just keep in mind, the lid strap isn’t designed to support the weight of a full bottle. But you can make your own strong lid straps that don't break. If you prefer to carry your bottle by a handle, the classic lid may not be the best option for you. Consider one of the other options on this list with a proper handle or make your own DIY Nalgene holder (some of which are a lot easier to make than you may think).

Narrow mouth Nalgene Bottles are more convenient to drink from, but wide mouth bottles are better for just about everything else — they’re easier to fill, add ice to, pour out, clean, and more.

Like the capCAP+, the Contigo AutoSeal adds a narrow mouth drinking spout for ease of use. But instead of a screw-on cap, the AutoSeal has a self-sealing sip spout and push-button release that makes one handed drinking that much smoother. It fits Nalgene bottles but probably lots of others that have the same screww fitting - although don't quote us on that.It's also much harder to clean Nalgene wide mouth bottles. Just yesterday I threw my wide mouth Nalgene full of caked on 3 day old smoothie into the dishwasher and it cleaned it perfectly. You can't do that with a narrow mouth Nalgene. And honestly, they’re good enough lids that it may be worth buying the entire bottle regardless (they cost about the same as many replacement lids anyway). The best lid for a Nalgene Bottle is the Humangear capCAP+ lid . It adds an ergonomic narrow mouth drinking spout to any wide mouth bottle, providing the ease of drinking from a narrow mouth Nalgene while maintaining all the benefits of a wide mouth bottle. If you prefer a lid with a straw, the CamelBak Eddy+ lid is compatible with wide mouth Nalgene Bottles and has a flip-out straw with a bite valve. For being active, the Eddy+ is still my go-to straw lid, but for the office or lazy days around the house, a straw without a bite valve is a lot easier to drink from.

Now you may be asking yourself, why don’t I just get a narrow mouth Nalgene instead of a wide mouth with a capCAP+ lid?

Nalgene offers several lids of their own, but there are also a variety of 3rd party lids that fit Nalgene bottles and can make them even better.
