Whether filling up at a public fountain, with rain water, at a local creek, or at a mud puddle in Bali, you can have peace of mind that the Epic Advanced Filter inside the OG Ultimate Outdoor Travel Bottle (UTB) allows you to drink any water no matter how polluted. The Advanced Filter is designed for use with any polluted water source (excluding salt water). This advanced biological water filter instantly purifies water contaminants as you squeeze or suck from your bottle, guaranteeing a stress-free experience when drinking from heavily contaminated water sources. Supply yourself with clean water in emergency situations, international travel, hiking, camping, or any other outdoor activity. Get wild.
The Nalgene OG Story
In the 1970s, conservationists began discouraging the disposal of cans and glass bottles by burning and burying them in the wilderness & in recreation areas. Eventually, some of those places responded with regulations and began forbidding such materials. Nalgene products quickly 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 gained access to them through their networks, like in their workplaces.
Company lore has it that the Nalgene Company president discovered that his son's Boy Scout troop was using Nalgene laboratory containers for camping. Since then, the company has re-packaged and marketed the items for consumer sales through their 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). We could not be happier putting our filter into the OG American made water bottle, the Nalgene 32 oz wide mouth.
"OG" back in the day used to mean Original Gangster although some younger people these days use OG as a quicker way of saying "The Original" - at Epic, we thought, what is more OG than the Nalgene 32oz wide mouth bottle? That is why we call it the Epic Nalgene OG. It's the original gangster.

Use Instructions: Your Nalgene OG Outdoor Travel Bottle (UTB) comes with our Outdoor Filter. Before using the filter for the first time or if the filter has not been used for an extended period, then it is best to fill your bottle and let the filter sit in the water for at least 45 minutes. This will allow the Outdoor Filtration media to get saturated and improve the flow of water. Also the filter flow will improve with consistent use.

Test and Approved Worldwide
Epic Water Filters have been independently tested across the globe in both field and laboratory test in countries including the USA, UK, Australia and Japan. These rigorous processes are just another way we go well beyond what's required to deliver the cleanest, purest water possible.
Care Instructions: The bottle, lid, and straw are dishwasher safe but we always recommend that you hand wash the bottle, straw and lid with mild dish soap and warm water. The Outdoor Adventure Filter is not dishwasher safe. Never use soap on the filter itself. For cleaning the outside of the filter, we recommend just using warm water and a brush.
Best way to care for your OG Ultimate Travel Bottle: Put the bottle, lid, & straw, in a sink filled with warm water and a small amount of mild dish soap and let it soak. If you’d prefer, you can also put the warm water and soap in the bottle to soak for a few minutes. Shake it to distribute the soapy water, rinse really well and let it dry. As long as you use a small amount of a mild soap, there shouldn’t be any soapy taste left in the bottle. However, if you’d rather skip the soap you can use warm water and lemon or warm water and baking soda to clean the bottle. Let the OG UTB bottle, lid, & straw dry in a dish rack until use. Now go enjoy some Epic Water!
