Ain't no bottle like a Backcountry bottle 'cause a Backcountry bottle won't stop delivering tasty, refreshing beverages to your mouth hole. Please also notice The Goat. The 22-ounce bottle itself is called the Purist, and it's USA-made using a low-density polymer that makes it freezer-friendly and enhances grip. The interior of the bottle, after being molded, gets a 5-nanometer-thick application of silicon dioxide, an inert compound that not only prevents plastic from slowly leeching into the bottle over time, even after washes, but also eliminates that funky water bottle taste we all dread. It's like a pure glass cup in the form of a rough-and-tumble water bottle that happens to look great with The Goat on it, too.

Works fine

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Does the job, also has a water level indicator. It has the expected size. IMPO the backcountry big sticker can be removed or can send and you can decide to put it on the bottle or some other place, it just fine with a single logo and the brand name.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this bottle! Black, classy, and it has a Goat on it!!! Works great.

My Goat Herd is Growing

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The number of things I own with goats on it is starting to get ridiculous. I still don't regret this purchase, though! Great little water bottle at an affordable price point. Love representing the goat on every trail that I ride. I saw an earlier review that stated the bottle leaks when not upright. I tested this last night and did not see any leakage when held upside down for a long period of time. Perhaps it has been fixed or it was a bad batch fluke. A nice feature not apparent in the specs or pictures is that there is a sliver of clear plastic that runs from top to bottom which allows you to make a quick visual check on how much H2O you have left. I will put the "landing on its feet" claim to test more over the spring and summer :)

Fill with water, go ride bike

    Yep, it's a water bottle. It holds your water, fits on your bike, and has a goat on it!

    Cap Leaks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This new design on the cap leaks. If the bottle tips over on its side it will spill out its contents. For example, if I flip the bike upside down to fix a flat, the liquid inside the bottles will leak out. I have to remember to remove the bottles from the cages before I flip the bike over or I will have to refill the bottles. The last design did not leak. For some reason the hole in the center of the cap is open and does not close completely like the last design. Either I received two bad caps or it is an issue with the quality control. At first I thought that I just had to break them in and use them a few times but after being used for over a month, they continue to leak.

    i just bought a different purist bottle from cc and it also leaks - i think it is the Pursit "moflo" cap which doesn't have the heart-valve that is leak proof. Lame. I don't know why that cap is even available. super awkward to open/close with mouth and leaks if left open.


      The bottle does the job. The bottle comes with a sticker that does not peel off cleanly, it was annoying to remove the sticker and remove the sticker residue.

      I will second this. The sticker is about the size of a post-it and really ticked me off- backcountry needs to stop using these!

      No nonsense here

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      It holds water and hydrates you when you're thirsty all while rocking the goat - what more could you want?!

      You can spend more on bottles. Don't.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Specialized Purist bottles rock. I'm all about repping the Goat/CC logo out on the road and trails!

      Is this dishwasher safe?

      According to the FAQ's on Specialized's website, all of their bottles are dishwasher safe and can be washed on the top rack. See:

      simply the best

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      how do you make the best bottle even better? You put the logo on it.

      Awesome affordable bottle

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I was looking for a bottle that was firm enough it held its shape but could also be squeezed to get water fast. This is exactly that. The bottle and the top are made really well. Like others said, there is no plastic taste.

      Nicest bottle out there!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Good bottle! It carries water like a champ! This size fits perfectly on my large Hightower. Purist top makes it super easy to get drink when you need one. Buy 10 of em!

      MMMM Goat Water

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Specialized Purist bottles are pretty much the best bottles. Simple, perfectly sized and easy to squeeze. Why not get a bottle that reps your favorite online retailer? I purchased the Turqoise one to go with my "Industry Blue" 2019 Santa Cruz Bronson. The color is pretty darn close too.

      Good at holding water

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Holds plenty of water for most of my rides and doesn't leak. I have a few of these and haven't had any issues thus far.

      Solid bottle

        This bottle has done the job when it comes to bike rides, hikes, etc. There isnt a funky plastic flavor when i use it. It is a great sized bottle for any occasion.

        Simple design on a quality Purist bottle

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This bottle is a "Purist" bottle by Specialized. If you want to learn more, research Purist bottles. Quality, no plastic taste and no leaks.

        I wanted a simple black bottle. Ta dah... Purist bottle. 22oz is perfect as I carry this in my Dakine Hot Laps 2L waist pack (it's a fanny pack). Not much more to say. If you like the simple design on a Purist bottle... get one.

        simple and cheap

          a bottle that does the job. isn't too big that it's annoying to remove from the cage and doesn't have plastic taste either.
