Real Customer Reviews
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.
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!
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.
Likes: Easy to carry, light weight
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.
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.
