For many years, the most requested new product was a Kanteen with a jar-sized mouth that could be used as an alternative to polycarbonate and other plastic outdoor bottles; the Klean Kanteen Wide is the answer, and it's designed to go anywhere and do anything. The popularity of these field rated Kanteens continues to grow as hikers, backpackers, kayakers, sailors and other outdoor enthusiasts have discovered their utility.
While the Kanteen Wide is perfectly at home in your daily routine, it's equally suited for serious adventure. The 2.125" wide-mouth opening and threads are compatible with most backcountry water filters and UV sterilization devices. The stainless steel construction also allows the Kanteen itself to be sterilized in boiling water. Though we do not recommend the practice, we have heard of Kanteen's being used to boil water in survival situations... don't try that with a plastic bottle. Made from 18/8, food-grade stainless steel, the material is safe, toxin-free and doesn't retain or impart flavors. No matter how many times you refill it, no matter what you put into it, it will keep your drinks fresh, crisp and clean tasting.

Klean Kanteen provides high quality, long-life, sustainable solutions that replace single-use items. "Sustainable" is a word we don't use lightly. It means a lot more than just carbon offsets, recycled packaging or wind energy. A sustainable business consciously adopts practices that benefit more than the bottom line. We must consider the sum total of our interactions with people, the environment, culture and technology. We continually work to lessen our impact in four key areas: energy, water, waste, and chemicals. As we strive be a model and a leader, sustainability will continue to drive our decisions much as it was a driver of the invention of the first Klean Kanteen itself.
You never have to worry about the materials in a Klean Kanteen. We did the research for you and selected high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel and BPA-free polypropylene #5 (for caps). Quality stainless steel doesn't need a liner like aluminum bottles, so it doesn't retain flavors or make drinks taste funky.
Curvy corners and rounded threads
It's easy to clean Klean Kanteens because they were intentionally designed with radius (rounded) corners and there are no hard angles where dirt or bacteria can hide. We also use large, radius threads that are easy to clean so dirt, bacteria and germs don't have a place to accumulate or hide.
Functional large-mouth openings
The large openings of our bottles, canisters and tumblers accommodate big ice cubes and also make for easy cleaning. You can handwash all of our products and many of them are diswasher safe.
100% Stainless Interior
All our bottles and canisters have stainless steel interior options available so drinks never touch plastic. Our food canisters come standard equipped with lids that feature leak-proof, stainless steel interiors to lock in flavor and create 100% stainless environments.
No Liner and Flavor free
The food-grade stainless steel we use doesn't need to be lined with plastic or baked-on epoxy like aluminum bottles, so you'll never have to check to make sure the inside of your Klean Kanteen is still safe and intact. Because our steel solutions don't have liners, they don't retain flavors or make drinks taste funky either.
Products are handmade and designed to last.
When you buy a Klean Kanteen you're getting a handcrafted solution designed to last a lifetime. We use an extremely high quality metal that will remain stain and rust resistant for decades.
Fair labor standards
Klean Kanteen visits their factories regularly, sometimes unannounced, to make sure that the workers who handcraft each product are treated well and paid fairly. They require fair labor standards, including the ethical treatment of factory workers, child labor rules, wages and benefits, health and safety.
