Dislikes: Na

Reviewed by Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer - March 19, 2014

Likes: Great buy for someone wanting to do extended stays or traditional camping. Water is a necessity and this allows you to have a good storage and unlike other platypus products, it is very easy to clean. The zipper stay shut well.

Dislikes: Nothing

Reviewed by Alan F. - February 19, 2014

Likes: as a water "tank" this item works pretty well, the top does not close too well so filling it up completely and carrying the water back any distance is a pain.

Dislikes: the horizontal closure does not seal very well, and does not allow for "tipping" the tank to pour water out of!

Reviewed by Mike B. - October 23, 2013

Likes: The fact that I could make one trip for water and have enough in camp for the whole day. The weight for having this kind of capacity was also a plus.

Dislikes: The zip-loc top of the 4-Litre model was stiff and hard to get sealed. These are also rather pricey.

Reviewed by Mary B. - May 25, 2013

Likes: Easy to carry, light weight

Dislikes: nothing

Reviewed by Janella H. - September 7, 2012

Likes: A large size water tank. If you need a water tank that holds alot of water this is your item. It has the durability of the Platypus reputation.

Dislikes: So far nothing.

Reviewed by Irv B. - June 27, 2011

Likes: Platypus got it right with the water tank. It is easy to fill, easy to carry, stable on uneven surfaces, and pours without spilling.

Dislikes: The seal on top is secure but it takes serious effort to close.
