The flexible silicone material made the Nomader collapsible water bottle pass the drop test. It bounces on the floor and then rolls away without breaking. The lid is designed to last a lifetime with regular use and if for whatever reason it doesn’t then it’s covered under the warranty. I did find that this is one tough lid and is a sturdy and reliable lid.
Ease of Use
If you are concerned with drinking and refilling problems, that’s not an issue with the Nomader. The mouth lid is wide enough so you can add ice or refill it without spills and leaks. Also, the sports cap makes drinking easier while eliminating spillage when on the go.
The soft silicone makes the bottle squeezable so you can quickly hydrate yourself when necessary. When the bottle is empty, you can simply roll it up and compress for convenient storage.
Ease of Cleaning
Due to the silicone material, the Nomader collapsible water bottle can get dirty easily. If you use it outside, it will attract dust and may end up with filth that is difficult to clean up. However, there is a cleaning guide that comes with the bottle which quickly explains how to best clean the bottle. It’s a good thing though, that the mouth lid is wide so you can still clean the inside using a bottle brush.
In addition to being easy to clean with a bottle brush, the Nomader bottle is top-rack dishwasher safe. And when away from home for travel, hiking, or camping, water bottle cleaning tablets are the most convenient way to keep the Nomader bottle squeaky clean.

When it comes to the price, this product is more expensive than other collapsible bottles on the market. But the unusual design and unique features can make it a worthwhile purchase. The Nomader bottle was created to offer a happy medium between drinking comfort, durability, and portability. Designed with a flexible BPA-free silicone body, it can be folded up or collapsed flat to save on space, yet it’s as comfortable to drink from as a hard-sided bottle.
