The New Standard In Cups,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Bottle Cup/Pot (Automotive)
If you are using a 32oz Nalgene bottle, then this cup is a must have item. It is big enough to nest on the bottom or top of any standard size water bottle. It's the perfect size to boil water in for dehydrated meals or to just make some hot chocolate on a winter hike. The only thing about this cup that I would change would be to make the handles able to lock in the open position. I've used a military canteen and canteen cup for years and never thought that I would use anything different. Now that I've tried using the 38oz standard size Guyot Designs water bottle and the GSI cup, they have become my new standard.

I have read that the cup fits nicely with the Guyot 32 oz. But I was hoping it would fit similarly in the 38 oz canteen. Based on your experience using the cup with the 38 oz, how do you like the feel? Thanks!

The Guyot Designs 38oz Standard model bottle has the same profile as a 32oz Nalgene style water bottle, so it fits perfectly. The Guyot Designs 32oz Backpacker model tapers at the bottom and doesn't fit as well in my opinion and tends to rattle around a little bit. I do own both models and I am just commenting on my experience with them. I also would like to add that I have painted my 38oz Guyot Designs bottle with high temperature black spray paint like used on barbecue grills. This makes the clean up of soot from the bottle after boiling water in the campfire much easier and the cup still easily fits on the bottom of the bottle. Hope this helps you.

With a $10 cup, $40 water bottle, and $37 bottle holder, how can I justify getting this? A new mil-spec, 2-quart, bladder style canteen w/case would cost $10 here on amazon, and wouldn't slosh as I moved. Is there not a space-effective and cost-effective way to integrate a cup into that system?
I'm just starting to invest in survival gear and want to stretch my earnings since I'm pretty much starting from scratch.

Check out the Guyot Designs Squishy bowls. They are inexpensive, lightweight, and they don't take up much space. Another option is the standard military canteen and cup set. I use the canteen cup and canteen just as often as I use the Guyot Designs bottle and GSI cup. Every one has their own preferences for gear. I like the stainless steel containers because I can boil water in them or make char cloth in them. But you don't necessarily have to boil water before you drink it, you can use water purification tablets, chlorine, or iodine. You can make char cloth in an altoid's tin. Buy whatever gear you can afford and get out there and test it out. That's part of the fun of building a kit. Some of it you might find don't hold up well in the field, but it's better to test it out in your back yard instead of waiting until your life depends on it and have it fail. Just buy what you can on your budget. Don't just buy what every one else uses. Find what works for you.

How will you boil water in a plastic canteen?
