Contigo, well known for beautiful and high-functioning travel mugs for auto and other use, also makes a series of water bottles that are perfect for boaters. Shown above is the 24-ounce Kangaroo water bottle hanging conveniently on the lifelife of a moored sailboat. I tested this bottle extensively on a long cruise and found it the best I have ever used on a boat, not least because of the built-in carabiner that lets you hang it almost anywhere so that, unlike regular water bottles, it's not bouncing around all over the cockpit.
Other features of the Kangaroo model include:
- One-handed operation of the AUTOSEAL drinking mechanism that is perfectly leak-free with the bottle in any position
- A built-in flip-open storage compartment if you need a place for keys or a credit card - a good idea since the bottle will also float if you drop it overboard!
- Rugged construction with high-impact plastic
- 100% BPA free
- Available in a range of colors
Other Contigo water bottle models have additional features such as the double-walled insulated bottle and stainless steel models to match your boat's hardware. Check them out and compare prices.
