Convenient Until Cleaning

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great water bottle for hiking, backpacking, touring or really any time space and weight is limited. I've had great luck with these and am yet to have one leak or break. The only downfall to these is that they are difficult and take a long time to dry after washing.

Unanswered Question

How can I get mould out of my bottle? I may have forgotten it with leftover Gatorade inside....

Keep it frozen

I bought these for some friends for their "Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup" challenge. They are needing to stash water in key places so they don't have to carry all the extra weight, and collapse the bottles when they are done. I thought these would be exactly what they need!

I also own some for camping. I keep them frozen in the freezer so they are good to go and so I don't have to dry them out for storage. They hold up really well to being frozen, and they help to keep the cooler cold. The only downside is the bottle is flimsy when drinking from it, and I'm afraid I'm going to cut my hand on the laminated edges, but It hasn't happened yet in the many years I've owned these bottles! You can also use them as "clean bags" if you have a Platypus Gravity Filter.

compact with volume

I got this to have a smaller more space saving vessel, but with the volume to still have enough liquid... Works great and when they leak, you can cut off the top and voila you have a flat cup or bowl.

Okay water vessel.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It did not leak in my limited use, so it has that going for it. Going to agree with the other reviewer, it is a pain to dry and even with pretty substantial measures taken they did not dry for a long time.

Hard to Dry

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great little water bottle if you are trying to save space in your pack. I have had in my drying rack for 4 days and there's still water in the bottle. I though this would be a nice solution to drying out a camelbak, but it takes longer to dry out!
