Sounds like a Nalgene bottle. They're practically indestructible.

yeah, nalgene are the ones. you can basicall run them over with a car and they will hodl up. You can get rubbermade's version at wally world for about $5. Same design and construction, but cheaper price.

I've ridden mountainbikes for years wearing a Camelbak....works great for that or hiking. You'd have to take it off each time you threw, it WILL screw with your throwing. I won't take mine to play disc golf, I'd rather have a cooler in the car and a water bottle that I can just refill.

The stuff those bottles are made of is called Lexan and it's made by GE. So, if you want one an industrutable bottle, just fine one that's made out of Lexan. One thing I will warn you about is to try out the lid. The lids on the Nalgene bottles are really easy to work with. Some of the lids on off brands aren't quite as nice (i.e. they'll get in the way while drinking, they won't come off, they're hard to screw/unscrew, etc.). So, while you're shopping for one of these bottles, definitly check out the lid.

A Friend of my uses his camelbak as his discgolf bag as well. He puts his 5 discs he uses, Putter 2 mids 2 drivers (sponsered by millenium) and he has his water. He really likes it. Seems to work well for him.

It's an option I want in a new bag, having a compartment for my 3 Liter Camelback without having to worry about it being squished by me or the ground.

ive considered putting a camel pack in a disc bag and then running your hose up your strap(s) so you have easy acess while carrying your bang and dont have anything else to carry. My end decision is its just easier to carry water bottles anyways.

I recommend a regular sports drink or water bottle like you buy at the convenience store. I've got gatorade and other assorted bottles that I bought when I first started playing back in November of last year. They're frozen with too much water in them regularly and none have had to be thrown out yet. I don't think you really need some fancy, name branded water bottle.
