If you love wandering in the great wilderness, you will appreciate what the Zahota Bota Drinking Bottle has to offer. So what’s wrong with the good’ol Bota that it calls for a redesign? Well, the major thing that puts us off is the material. Traditional Botas are made from animal hide (eww) and frankly, we wouldn’t drink from that. Besides, it is heavy and leather isn’t quite the best material in the world to keep water in and that’s not to mention that it can’t be cleaned probably. Also the cord-like shoulder strap tends to dig into your shoulder which means it is not going to comfortable to carry around. The traditional Bota is as good as it last and the folks behind Zahota think it is time for a change and hence the Zahota, and we couldn’t agree more.
Based on the ancient wine skin bottle, the Zahota takes what you love about the old and lend it with every possible modern touches you can imagine including a removable one-liter reservoir that is BPA-free and dishwasher safe, a zippered outer bag made of ballistic nylon, pockets for stashing your EDC, a headphone slot for audio cable to pass through, and adjustable padded shoulder strap with bonus waist strap to keep the bottle from bouncing around as you running, skiing or whatever. Best of all, it doesn’t include any animal products. Phew. If you’re all up for it, you can pre-order yours on Kickstarter for as low as $40, but of course, whether it will materialize depends on the outcome of the funding campaign.
