They Say You Can’t Break a Nalgene…

After spending the rest of the cave trip thirsty, I decided to remedy that unfortunate and unsafe situation by acquiring the following:

P1240191

Not only is it excessively shiny and ruggedly handsome, but it’s also supposed to dent instead of breaking.

I’m prepared to put that claim to the test.
