The Nalgene OG Story
In the 1970s, conservationists began discouraging the disposal of cans and glass bottles by burning and burial in wilderness & recreation areas, and some places began forbidding such materials by regulation. Nalgene products became popular replacements among backpackers for storing consumables; the light, wide-mouthed high-density bottles were more secure than plastic bags and were used for both liquids and solid foods.
Originally, wilderness travelers purchased Nalgene products from laboratory-equipment suppliers, or perhaps gained access to them in their workplaces.
Company lore has it that Nalgene Company president discovered that his son's Boy Scout troop was using Nalgene laboratory containers when camping. Since then, the company has re-packaged and marketed items for consumer sales through its line of Nalgene Outdoor Products. In 2018, Epic Water Filters & Nalgene began to discuss a collaboration between the Nalgene 32 oz wide mouth bottle and the Urban Filter system from Epic Water Filters (both made in the USA).
"OG" back in the day used to mean Original Gangster although some people these days use OG as a quicker way of saying "The Original" - at Epic, we thought, what is more OG than the Nalgene 1 litre wide mouth bottle? That is why we call it the Epic Nalgene OG. It's the original gangster.
Reusable by Design
At Epic Water Filters, we believe in building products that never become obsolete, our water bottles with filters are a perfect example. When you invest in the Nalgene OG, you get a modular system designed to grow with your family and perform for years to come. Whether you are trying to remove tap water contaminants or taking your Nalgene OG bottle on your next adventure overseas, the interchangeable filter system has you covered no matter where you find yourself.
Our American-made and American-tested filters outperform well-known filtration brands any day of the week. You'll notice some of our biggest competitors do not even publish test results -- that's because their filters only remove bad taste and some chlorine (like that Brita water bottle you've become so skeptical of lately).
Our American-made Urban Water Bottle Filter are tested against NSF/ANSI Standards 42, 53, 401, & P473 for contaminant reduction (see Urban Bottle Filter Data Performance Sheet for complete results)
