If you've ever been even remotely outdoorsy in your life, you've likely owned a Nalgene bottle. Despite the myrid of options any one person who wants to carry water has to choose from (like some very nice vacuum styles), the Naglene remains ubiqitous. Affordable, rugged, and made in the good ole US of A. What's not to love?
I've owned and lost a solid handful in my lifetime, each with a collage of stickers (ahem, slaps) which have enabled me to express myself/tell people what sorts of hobbies I have and which craft breweries I'm a fan of. Take a survey of the local campsites, trailheads, crags, or any sort of venue where outdoorsy folk are found and you'll likely find a good sampling of stickered up Nalgene bottles.
A number of brands have looked to this democratic vessel to imprint their identity and artwork. This is just a small sampling of what's out there, from Supreme's little red box to Peter Saville's Unknown Pleasures graphic by way of Pleasres. Who knows, maybe one day there might even be a Field Mag bottle to join them.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of seminal record Unknown Pleasures, punk-inspired streetwear brand Pleasures collaborated with Joy Division to create an entire capsule collection featuring Peter Saville's iconic artwork. One of those items just happens to be this bottle.
