This is a good question, and one we haven't looked into much. It appears that most 100% Stainless Steel bottles are made in China (as you might expect) and even though there is much evidence to suggest that those factories are up to responsible standards, concern nevertheless persists. Two companies that make great products and are known to be credible in their production statements are Guyot Designs, and Kleen Kanteen. Multi-Pure (http://www.multipureco.com) seems to promote US manufacturing, but we have not confirmed it.

A quick search doesn't make me optimistic that there are many stainless water bottles made in the USA. If your rationale is the associated carbon footprint of shipping from overseas or questionable labor practices in some third-world countries, than I understand your question. It seems likely that price is the primary reason such products are produced in countries such as China. This is not an indication of quality, as each brand is made to different specifications. One brand I've had some personal experience with and like is Kleen Kanteen. Of note is that, like Oh, Ranger!®, they are members of 1% For The Planet, meaning that they donate at least 1% of their revenues to approved (by 1%) environmental causes. Also, they make a nice product and have taken the time to answer concerns about production oversees. Check out this link and see what you think: http://www.kleankanteen.com/faqs/faqs.html Note that there are many brands that could suit your needs. Nalgene is a well known manufacturer of water bottles, and they now have stainless products in their line. They also have a wide variety of BPA-free plastic bottles from which to choose. If you or anyone else in our community knows of a reputable brand of water bottles made in the USA, please share your insights with everyone at OhRanger.com. Thanks!
