I didn’t realize that there is a mini-vogue for steel canteens among the outdoor community. I was just sick of the plastic taste of my old canteen. I wanted water to taste clean and refreshing. I wanted either a glass or steel canteen and was pleasantly surprised at how many great options are out there.
I eventually decided on a steel canteen, since glass is not as durable, and picked up several Klean Kanteen models. A few months later and I’m not regretting the switch. I might never drink out of plastic again.
