    Is anyone aware of a metal cup that I can boil water in that will nest a Nalgene bottle?

    Snow Peak 700 (.7 Litre) Titanium. That is what I use and it fits perfectly with the wide mouth Nalgene bottles in a Maxpedition Bottle Holder.

    Stainless steel one, I think it is GSI. Much cheaper than the Ti ones...just not as cool.

    I used to use a "tatonka handle mug" for that purpose, I think it had 500ml volume.

    I use the same cup with a 40 oz. Klean kanteen! Couldn't be happier!

    Off topic, but I also found that the Snow Peaks fit perfectly on two different sizes of Camelbak bottles.

    I have both the GSI and SnowPeak 700. They both work great with 1L Nalgene and Stainless Steel Guyot/Nalgene bottles which are my preference.

    Left (green) is a one liter in a SP 600 mug. Right (blue) is a 750 mL (3/4 liter) in a SP 450 mug. Both bottles, as you can see, are Camelbak "Better Bottle" models.

    For me, the handles on the MSR are much more comfortable than the GSI ones. 2 Wolves used to have them, but they are getting hard to find.

    +1 aaaaand it will fit the large stainless 40 oz Kleen Kanteen bottle. I have the Ti 700 ml cup and it works great. put it into a pouch with the lid on the bottom, the cup, then the water bottle and you will forget they are there till you need them.

    The gsi minimalist nests very well on a nalgene.

    I use two GSI Glacier cups. I nest one on top and the other on the bottom of the nalgene bottle.
