Go To The Woods.
Like Thoreau, you like to live deliberately. So when you head to the woods for an extended camping trip, make sure to pack the HydraPak Seeker Collapsible Water Bottle. It's made from a flexible and durable TPU construction that collapses down to the size of a fist for easy transport during the hike in. Once you make camp, fill the bottle and hang it from a tree for convenient, drinkable water whenever you need it.

Too many drawbacks.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
What I like:
The 2L shape is ideal for side pockets in backpacks.
The large opening makes it easy to clean and dry.
You can freeze them.
What I don't like:
They're so floppy that they're unwieldy when trying to pour out of them and very hard to drink out of.
They cannot stand up in their own.
I haven't found any compatible accessories.
I thought these would replace my Platys but they won't. In fact, I don't know if I will ever use this again. Super bummed about these bottles.
Bought to pair with the Katadyn BeFree
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this to pair with my Katadyn BeFree. I would not use it as a water bottle to drink from...not really its purpose. Its threads are compatible with the BeFree so you can filter right next to the stream into water bottles or bladders very quickly or store a few extra Liters for camp and then filter when you get there. I've only used it once so far, but it should fit my needs just fine.
More negatives than positives.
I saw these online and I wanted to check them out. I read a review where someone said they are very flimsy and trying to hold onto them while filling , or pouring was difficult, not to mention dealing with the cap that you would have to set down somewhere while you are filling or pouring.
The 2 liter seems more rigid than the 3 liter, which feels really flimsy. It isn't the flimsiness that is the issue, it is the lack of other features that other comparable bottles have.
I think it is a good start, but to make it better they should have made a lid that was tethered onto the bottle. After seeing them and handling both sizes.. I passed on getting either.
I bet the next generation of these will be even better once they get more feedback from consumers.
