1 of 5 Bad Smell and Taste March 10, 2016
Reviewer: S B from San Francisco, CA United States  
I hand washed the bottle and air dried for a few days, then put the lid on it and stored in my backpack. when I opened it, it had a foul plastic smell. I washed it out again and this time put water in it for two days and the water had a bad taste. This is not a good bottle. Going back to the Tritan bottles, which I have had no issue with other than the cap connection breaking.

5 of 5 HDPE/Polyethylene IS BPA free July 15, 2015
Reviewer: Kathy from Florida  
It is a shame Ben from Washington does not double-check his facts before offering up an opinion. Unless the formulation has been changed, the ultralite bottles are made of HDPE/Polyethylene, which is BPA free.

These bottles are incredibly useful, and when you factor in the affordable price, they are unbeatable.

Pros: they are lightweight, incredibly durable.
Con: the only con I can think of is that these do tend to hold odors more so than the bottles made with Tritan. BUT I have found that with all plastic containers, the problem with odor retention pretty much becomes a non-issue if one just stores containers with the lids off/open.

1 of 5 NOT BPA FREE July 7, 2015
Reviewer: Ben from Washington  
This bottle has BPA in it. Its a shame that nalgene still sells products that were popular in the 1970's while today we know that products like these are toxic for humans.

Definitely spend the extra 2 dollars on the BPA free model of this water bottle.
