Nalgene

Nalgene Logo

The Nalge brand (named after the creator’s wife’s initials NLG) was started back in 1949, producing plastics initially intended for use in the laboratory. They constructed containers like bottles, jars, test tubes, and such that were lighter than glass and sure not shatter should they be dropped! Scientists of the company who also had an interest in the outdoors slowly realized what a convenience these products would be for their outdoor use. Their equipment found a new purpose and for some time, those who were in the know about Nalgene would contact suppliers of lab equipment or perhaps found access to these products in workplaces of their own. But by the 1970’s, Nalgene had repackaged their plastic products and marketed their items to the wilderness-loving subculture.
