(No, it doesn't have to be 'nalgene'.)
Ages ago I posted a crochet cozy for my chilly, cumbersome waterbottle in the crochet forum.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24597.0

Now I have a knit version.Ta Da!!

It's felted in briggs and little.   More info at my blog: http://pomoboho.blogspot.com  Leave me a comment if you're interested in the pattern (it has some crocheting components to make it sturdier)  I'm selling some with intarsia motifs...skulls, "H2O"-ha ha so clever!, flowers and lightning bolts -any more ideas welcome!

OH MY GOD I am so all over this.  Normally, I think "cozy"-ing everything in sight can get a bit silly, but this is practical and cute, to boot.

That's because it's not really a cozy, it's more of a holder. And that IS a good idea. :-)

Very nice! I crocheted one based on that previous post, I bet a felted one would be fab as well.

genius! I've seen people carrying theirs by the little loop that holds the top on the bottle (i.e. you'd have to take that little loop off of the bottle) but I'd be so afraid to lose the top... plus this is hands-free. I agree, it's more a nalgene sling than a nalgene cozy.

I just saw your note about making them with intarsia motifs...now I think I'm going to HAVE to make one with a big "XXX" like on old-tyme moonshine jugs.  Heh.

Thanks for the comments!
Eunny I LOVE your 'xxx' idea; I might have to borrow it!!
BTW I should also mention that it works really well for holding your ball of wool if your neurotic and HAVE to knit standing, walking, waiting in line, etc Smiley
I love the term 'sling'!
