For more than a decade, Platypus has been a frontrunner in developing easy-to-use, modular hydration systems that fit every active lifestyle. Platypus pioneered products like lightweight, collapsible bottles, taste-free reservoirs and drinking tubes, and a no-leak bite valve with the highest flow rate on the market. Platypus tests everything they make and then backs it all up with a limited lifetime warranty. What this means for you is simple--systems that are dependable, easy to use, and flexible enough to go anywhere.
