Klean Kanteen: Durable Water Bottles & Hydration Accessories

A company truly dedicated to reducing plastic waste, Klean Kanteen was one of the first companies ever to design a reusable non-plastic water bottle. Back in 2004, brother and sister Michelle Kalberer and Jeff Cresswel set out to create quality water bottles which could replace the growing number of disposable water bottles ending up in landfills every year. Since then, Klean Kanteen has remained family owned and dedicated to its original goal of improving the environment.

Not only are Klean Kanteen bottles good for the world, they are also extremely well made and practical. Their water bottles are built to preserve the natural purity and taste of the water they carry, with no metallic after-taste or plastic by-products. Many of their bottles, like the Klean Kanteen Tkpro, are designed to survive all the banging and abuse of activities such as long distance hiking and climbing. Insulated bottles, like the KanteenTumbler Vacuum Insulated, can keep water and ice cold over extended trips.  Klean Kanteen is perfect to take with you no matter where you travel, and while you use your Klean Kanteen water bottle, you can rest assured that you're protecting the earth by keeping plastic out of it.

At OutlandUSA.com we love Klean Kanteen, both for their practical use and quality, and for their message. Many of our staff have used their water bottles everyday for years. And what's more, Klean Kanteens mission goes beyond reducing plastic waste: they give back 1% of all their profits to supporting the environment and sponsor dozens of other charities and efforts. 

How to Clean Your Klean Kanteen Water Bottle

Our Stainless Steel water bottles are made from food grade stainless steel with rounded corners, making them easy to clean. All it takes is soap, water and a little elbow grease (a bottle brush is handy as well)!

 Questions & Tips

Q: Can I Put My Klean Kanteen In The Freezer?

Unfortunately, not. The force of liquids expanding as they freeze can cause your Klean Kanteen to become deformed and can also break the weld that holds the bottle together, so we strongly advise against it. Freezing any Klean Kanteen product will void the Strong as Steel guarantee.

Q: Are Klean Kanteen Products Dishwasher Safe?

Single-wall (non-insulated), brushed stainless Klean Kanteens and food canisters are dishwasher safe. We recommend handwashing of insulated and color coated products. All Klean Kanteen caps and lids, except for the bamboo cap, are also dishwasher safe. Visit our Care and Use page to see videos and more information on caring for your Klean Kanteen products.

Q: Can I Use A Klean Kanteen For Alcohol?

Yes! In fact, our 27oz/800ml Classic can hold an entire bottle of wine. Because our kanteens are constructed of 18/8 food grade stainless steel, there is no issue when drinking an alcoholic beverage from our kanteens.

Q: Are Caps Interchangeable?

The mission behind all of their accessories is simple: to help Klean products perform at their best and have long, versatile lives. Their interchangeable lids easily transition from morning coffee to afternoon smoothies, water or beer on draught. Look for our Compatible Caps section on each product page to see which caps are compatible with your Kanteen.

Q: What Is Klean Coat?

Their new Klean Coat finish is a clean powder coat that is 4X more durable than our previous paint finish. They used GreenScreen to score ingredients by their level of safety and ingredients that did not meet their standards for contact with people and the environment were eliminated.

Q: Do Klean Kanteens Have BPA?

No way! Klean Kanteen was created in 2004 as a safe and healthy solution to plastic water bottles and all Klean products are BPA-free. Klean is rooted in health and wellness and has been from the beginning. They use BPA-free polypropylene (pp#5) to make some of our caps, but they do offer stainless steel cap options like our Stainless-Steel Loop Cap for those that prefer a plastic-free product.

Q: Are Your Products Vegan?

Klean Kanteen products do not contain animal products or bi-products.  They conduct a Chemical Hazard Analysis on the composition of all of their products components.  This includes 18/8 stainless steel (#304), polypropylene, silicone, our Klean Coat and our bamboo. At no time during the production or processing of these materials are there animal products used.

Q: Do Klean Kanteens Have An Interior Lining?

All Klean Kanteen products are made from high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel. Stainless steel is naturally free of BPA and other harmful substances. Since stainless steel is inherently safe for food and beverage contact no plastic or epoxy linings are necessary.
