Great travel bottle with large capacity. Folds down to nothing and closes up tight.

When empty, it takes up no space at all. Awesome.
Tough, Sits upright, Lightweight

I almost always hike in the desert. When I first saw a Platypus bag I thought it was junk. I've since learned to appreciate them. They are lighter than other containers. They are tough. They sit upright like a bottle. And they easily disconnect from the hydration tube allowing you to poor water from the bottle. I'm sold on Platupus bags and prefer them over any other water storage solution.
Works Great when New

After the 2nd or 3rd year of use, the stiff plastic can wear at inadvertant folds that develop with use. This results in pinpoint leaks that have to be repaired with some type of tape in the field. I used to be a 100% Platypus user but I find myself replaceing the worn out bottles with Camelbak's softer polyurethane pouch. When new, the Platypus works just fine.
seems to be well made

This is my first Platypus water bottle. I've used Nalgene's before and I thought I'd try this one. I do like the small top. It seems to be of the same high quality materials and construction that I expected. I like these collapsible bottles because of the way they conform inside a pack that's loaded,l
These are great

These 2L platypus drinking sacks are awesome. I am going to get some 1L bottles to compliment my massive canteens! They're great for taking to bike races and of course for camping.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
Standard Equipment for your hike/camp !

Platypus 2L Water Bottle is the best water supply equipment for your hike/camp. You'd better have 2L size even if you have many 1L size, because this is best size for cooking/washing/drinking. Also I sometimes freeze and put it to my hidration sleeve of bakcpack in my summer hike, this is amazing cool on your back, then you can drink cold water, too ! If it's very cold night, you can make a wrapped hot-water bottle in your sleeping bag...it's very comfortable and warm. Try it !Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
