    Those are battle scars. I bought a Sigg in Switzerland before they hit it big over here and traveled around the world with it. Lots of dents and chips. I think stalagmites were growing on the inside by the time I trashed it. I remember running to catch the train to New York one day and it fell out of my bag and rolled onto the tracks. I was able to make a daring rescue the next day.

    In college we dropped a Nalgene four floors (empty) onto a linoleum floor. It bounced and didn't break. Then we filled it up with water and dropped it four feet....broke instantly.

    My only problem with a Sigg bottle was the time I left it out in the garage during the winter with a full load of water inside.

    Have you ever seen aluminum split?
    :-(

    That is a little more than a battle scar...

    Sounds like a ski lift tower.
