    Synapse 25 - Water Bottle Recommendations

    Synapse 25 - Water Bottle Recommendations

    Tom Bihn newbie here.

    I purchased my beloved Synapse 25 for an EDC about a year ago . Since then Iíve become slightly obsessed with it and the organization of all the stuff I carry to work every day (office job. Nothing crazy).

    I am looking at a large snake charmer for the bottom and a 3D Organization Cube for one of the side pockets (let me know if I should switch this up). I have a few Clear Organizational Pouches already that I have sprinkled throughout the bag.

    What I'm looking for water bottle recommendation for the water bottle pocket. I like to drink cold water so something that isn't going to have condensation issues would be ideal.

    Let me know if you have anything that will fit the bill.

    Thanks!

    Zojirushi 16 or 20oz. I have a handful of them and they're all great. They're light, they don't leak, and they keep things hot or cold for hours. I've made coffee the night before and when I woke up, it was still noticeably hot. They work even better with cold beverages, I believe.

    Klean Kanteen 32 or 20 oz Insulated Classic. I've never put anything hot in them but for cold they keep them ice cold all day long. The 20 oz has some small condensation issues on the cap but it's not bad. And surprisingly they both fit into the center pocket of my Synapse 19 as well.

    I have a Klean Kanteen insulated 16 oz wide mouth bottle and a 32 oz insulated HydroFlask. They both fit in the S25 without issues.
    Today is a good day for a good day!

    The Synapse 19 and 25 are sized perfectly for a standard 1 Liter Nalgene. Any bottle that size or smaller will fit great. If you are worried about condensation, steer clear of uninsulated bottles and get one of the newer, high tech stainless vacuum bottles. They will keep ice water or hot drinks for hours and will not sweat.

    I often use the 32oz Klean Kanteen Classic Insulated, but the slimmer 20oz Klean Kanteen Insulated (Classic or Wide) or the 21oz HydroFlask will fit well too, especially if you also want to carry a short umbrella in there.

    I squeeze the 24oz HydroFlask in there sometimes, but it's not a good fit, slightly too tall and pulls a bit on the front body of the bag.

    I think the 32oz Wide Mouth HydroFlask will fit too, but I don't own one and I don't know anybody who does.

    I use a Hydroflask 32oz widemouth with a straw-lid and it fits about as perfect as a water bottle can fit.

    For me, the size of the bottle I take depends a lot on my interior load. Will often take a smaller bottle if I have a stuffed bag, or am carrying books or a computer on the inside of the large pocket as this can take space from the water bottle pocket.

    The 32oz widemouth hydroflask fits, but sometimes it helps to pack it first before stuffing the interior full. Depending on how full the interior is, it sometimes takes a bit of wiggling to get it in the pocket, but if the bag is not overly full it slides in and closes easily. When needed, I have also used my 40 oz hydroflask and just kept the zipper open as it is a bit tall for the pocket. Unless the bag is completely overturned the bottle stays in well enough without closing.

    I have also managed to fit two 28oz Reduce brand insulated bottles (bought at Costco a while back, not sure where else to get them) side by side. Again, a tight squeeze, but the top will zip shut.

    I use a FIFTY/FIFTY 40oz with hydro flask straw lid. When I put the straw lid on I was able to get it to zip up.

    This comment just sold me on a 32oz widemouth Hydroflask with a straw lid.
    Well. That....and they're having a sale on some of the colors they're retiring.

    I use a Platypus 1L soft bottle; it has a flatter shape than the cylindrical of most hard bottles, weighs very little and can be flattened or rolled up when empty. It fits well in the front water bottle pocket.

    I am also on team HyrdroFlask. I've used the 21oz and the 32oz standard mouths without issue.

    Hello Carrot!

    I have a 1 liter and one 1.5 liter Nalgene. Do you think the taller 1.5 will fit the S25?

    (I hope its ok to ask a question that is on topic)

    Harlil,

    Do you know if the 40 oz will fit in the S19? I'm looking at getting both for a trip to Utah this summer and Europe a month after that trip.

    Thanks,
