    Best water bottle for Pop Tote

    Hi all, I recently acquired a Pop Tote and am looking for water bottle recommendations.
    I have a 16oz (approx 500ml) standard wide mouth Nalgene which sort of fits in the outside pocket but it doesn't go all the way down.
    Can anyone recommend a narrow water bottle which fits better?
    Thank you Best water bottle for Pop Tote

    Do you need to have your water bottle in any outside pocket? If not, you can always do the hack (I wish I could remember who had posted this, but its in one of the hack videos) of holding your bottle upright inside by a harness. You thread some cording through an o-ring and have a cord lock on the other end. You cinch it up to your water bottle for travel, so that it doesn't move around.

    The smaller Stuff Sacks, size 1 and 2, are great bottle holders.

    Dimension from the product page:
    Size 1:
    External Dimensions - 3.9" (w) x 6.3" (h) x 2.6" (d) / 100 (w) x 160 (h) x 65 (d) mm
    Weight: .8 oz / 20 grams
    Volume: 75 cubic inches / 1.0 liters
    Size 2:
    External Dimensions - 5.2" (w) x 7.5" (h) x 3.5" (d) / 130 (w) x 190 (h) x 90 (d) mm
    Weight: 1.1 oz / 30 grams
    Volume: 125 cubic inches / 2.0 liters

    I use a water bottle holder made of fabric and isolating material. It ensures that my bottle is always within reach but it is too bulky for travel, so once, I used one of the smaller Travel Stuff Sacks to hold the bottle.

    You can pair it with the strap that is included with the SE or TC for a portable cross body or waist carry.

    @gqb, @TRD,

    If the requirement is finding something shaped to the exterior pockets of the Pop Tote, have you considered the 22 oz Hydroflask Coffee Tumblers? Take a look at my post [#12] in the 11-26-2017 thread titled, ďHow do you decide on a color?Ē:
    https://forums.tombihn.com/questions...tml#post152729

    That thread was really a discussion of Pop Tote properties just before ordering was going to go live, and I was discussing the factors I thought went into the design of the outside pockets. However, I also mentioned walking around my local Whole Foods to check the fit of various Hydroflasks in the pockets (as well as checking the sizing of various large iPhone models in those pockets at the Apple Store).

    I donít have a Hydroflask myself, but the coffee tumblers seemed a good fit to the shape of the Pop Tote pockets. They have lids to keep the contents hot (or cold) for extended periods ó you can check the specs and videos on their web site. Also, donít take the fact that I couldnít comment on the fit of the larger model as a sign that it wouldnít also fit ó thereís a limit to how much you can try out when youíre really shopping for other items. My post contains a chart with pictures and dimension specs of the other models. Ideally, someone who owns Hydroflask tumblers and a Pop Tote can comment.

    ETA: Excerpting the Hydroflask graphic from my linked post so you can see the shape and specs of the tumblers:

    Iíd completely forgotten your post, thanks for the excellent reminder.

    As for me, I prefer 40oz Hydroflasks, They stand in the main compartment which is just fine for me. I keep my keys on one side and my phone and pens on the other so my external pockets and spoken for anyway.

    Having a water bottle in the outside pocket of the PT is important for me, too. I found it very awkward/annoying/inconvenient to put it inside the bag; so, that was not a viable solution for me. I bought a new one for that purpose, but the good news is that anything that fits in the PT outside pocket will also fit anywhere else!

    I just tried the Hydroflask coffee “bottle” and it fits in a PT side pocket. The “standard” Hydroflask (21 oz. sport) fits easily in a side pocket. Both trials were with a Freudian Slip on the inside of the bag.
    Apologies for not taking pictures - we just bought a new house and are spending the weekend moving.

    My husband has a Zojirushi bottle. Itís tall & narrow. When I get him coffee, it fits perfectly in the side pocket of my pop tote.

    My 12 oz and 18 oz coffee-style Hydroflasks fit, as does my 17 oz S'well.
