Staying hydrated (especially while airborne) makes travel way more comfortable as it reduces jet lag, prevents cramps and headaches, and improves your immune system to better resist germs. But buying single-use plastic water bottles at the airport is expensive and bad for the planet.
The uniquely portable Nomader® Collapsible Water Bottle makes travel hydration easy and sustainable by taking up minimal bag space, and eliminating the need for wasteful single-use bottles. Designed with a flexible BPA-free silicone body, the reusable Nomader® bottle can be rolled-up and stashed away when not in use, yet it’s as comfortable to drink from as a hard-sided bottle. This innovative travel water bottle features a patented leakproof cap, an ergonomic carry strap, and a wide mouth for easy cleaning. Additionally, the 22oz capacity (tops off at 25oz) bottle is freezable, heat resistant, and backed by a lifetime warranty.
