love the one liter

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The handle is great and this thing is a tank. It has been through a lot and still has no leaks!

Perfect for Ski Touring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Light weight, collapsible, and useful. Used mostly ski touring and it allows me to lighten up my pack.

Save Weight & Space

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After using hard sided bottles that are far too heavy and cumbersome for backpacking for far too many years, I finally converted over to a system of carrying a couple of these (typically the 2L size) and either the Platypus Hoser hydration bag or drink tube. This allows me a more modular drinking system while also having great at camp water supply that takes of virtually no space or weight in my pack when they are empty. Cleaning & drying these are not my favorite part of using them, but that would be the case with any water storage with such a small 'mouth'. Overall, wonderfull product that is durable, lightweight, and simple!

Love it.

    I love platypus in general because it is light and when I am done it rolls up and can be shoved in a pocket. I like this particular design because I have an aversion to drinking after people. The handle made it easier for fellow adventures to easily pour water into their mouths without cross contaminating the bottle or pouring all over their face. Good thing too...I ended up with a stomach virus the morning after our trip. It also made cooking and filling at water sources less clumsy than the standard platypus bottle. I hate wet hands in the winter. I could go on and on, but it is a water bottle...so I won't.

    Short Day Trip Bottle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great for stuffing down your jacket when going for a quick day-tour or throwing in the pack as a back-up water bottle. You never know when you'll need an extra liter or two of water.

    Keep it Frozen

      I own a couple of these 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. Then I have plenty of backup water when needed. 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.

      Nalgenes are dead

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use this waterbottle for everything. I leave one in my climbing bag, my ski touring bag, my car, and in hiking packs. Easy to drink out of, lightweight, easy to pack, and you can clip it to whatever you need.

      Super Versatile

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Whether you want to use this as a portable water bottle or as part of an inline gravity like I using them for. I'm hoping they will hold up to lots of abuse but only time will tell. For those wanting to use them as part of a gravity filter these screw into a Sawyer Mini so no hoses required! Super ultralight and minimal!

      Folds down into nothing

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bought it primarily because when it's not full, it packs down to near nothing. Seems durable. No weird plastic taste that I've noticed. I'd buy one again.

      Great for a day hike

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this because my ABS pack does not have a hydration bladder sleeve/port. The 1L option with the handle is the size I went with. It is the perfect amount of water to bring on a day tour - not too much, not too little water.

      So far I am loving it.

      Love this

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I carry one or two 1 liter sized bladders in my pack so I can have extra capacity with very little added weight. They usually travel rolled up with a rubber band keeping then tight. They weigh in at 0.2 oz, if memory serves. I carry a 32 oz plastic bottle for use throughout the day so these give me the capacity to carry up to a gallon of water if needed without weighing down my pack. Water is heavy enough so I keep the containers as light as possible.

      Shed some bulk

        No need to carry around a big empty water bottle any more. I didn't give it 5 stars because the cap is not attached so it's easy to lose. I'd like to get a smaller version that fits in my jacket pocket for resort days.

        Great, easy to carry water bottle

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought two of these and have mainly been using one everyday. I bring it everywhere I go since it easily folds down and is super light. I have a Nalgene too which I like but it is much bulkier and heavy when full. I plan to take these camping, climbing, hiking, etc. And like one user said, no plastic taste at all and they stay pretty clean. Very much a recommended purchase!

        light, compact, flavorless

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've been using this bladder for awhile now and absolutely love it. It imparts absolutely no plastic taste (I had issues with an MSR bladder that constantly tasted like plastic even after 12 months of use). It doesn't seem to funk up as quickly as a Nalgene (I basically just rinse it after every use), it's pretty damn durable and actually stands upright too. When it's empty it rolls up and takes up almost no space in your pack/pocket. Love this thing so much I bought the 3L as well.

        Backpacking got easier!

          This water bottle is pretty rad. It is the ultimate backpacking water bottle. The more you drink the smaller the bottle gets and when you are done the water bottle is so small it can fit anywhere and weighs nothing.

          Basic, simple and compact

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I pretty much only use this bladder now. I have the 2 liter but it holds over 2 liters. I like that it is really compact when empty.

          I need my H2O

            I like the 2 liter because you can put it in your pack and it conforms to what your pack is doing. I just keep refilling my nalgene bottle and stuff it back in the pack till the last refill. I think it is much easier to use than having two extra rigid nalgenes stuffed in there.



            The only reason I go with the rigid nalgenes over this pouch is if I want to put any electrolytes or amino fuel into my bottles. I just use the pouch for plain water.
