    58 Bottle Size

    Is it just me, or are 58 bottles getting smaller?
    I always knew the Webtex one was small, but I thought the BCB ones were supposed to be legit.
    I have an Osprey one that is a nice snug fit inside a Crusader mug. It holds 2 pints, which is just that bit more than 1 litre.

    I was in a shop today and I saw 58 bottle by BCB that was in warry green.
    'I'll have one of those,' I thought.
    But when I got it home it was quite loose on the mug. I checked their website and see that BCB's bottles are listed as 950ml!
    That 150ml makes all the difference.

    I feel a bit hard done by.
    I can't take it back because there's nothing wrong with it.

    Was this always the way with the BCB 58 bottle or have they recently shrunk? I always had the impression they were meant to be as good as the Osprey ones.

    The Webtex ones are no bloody good. Can anyone else recommend a 58 bottle that is actually 2 pints and not smaller?

    Bit weird, that. Is the recent crusader a bit smaller, too? You'd think they'd make them to fit together.

    I have bcb and osprey bottles which are listed as one litre bur hold a bit more. Lots of cheap 'clones' around which are slightly smaller.
