Rated 5 out of 5 by Lou2000 Extremely useful, works great, and it packs flat
Used this first time at a campsite. Extremely useful for retrieving water. Right size and easy to carry. Great product.

Unfortunately, the bucket arrived with 2 slices in it. LL Bean did a great job of replacing the bucket in time for my weekend camping trip by sending it out overnight. We liked the size and weight, useful for either car camping or for backpacking trips. It worked well for rinsing dishes and for hauling water. The material is a bit stiff, but sturdy. I'm glad I chose the smaller bucket vs. the sink.

Very well made but much smaller than I thought. I should have checked liter size. It's the size of a regular 2 gallon bucket..I was hoping for a 3-4 gallon size. Came very quickly too! Not their fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mombo6 Loved the blue bucket!
A group of six of us recently backpacked N. Manitou Island (MI) and I took this along not realizing how handy it would be. We used it to grab water from Lake Michigan and carried it back to camp for filtering at our leisure. It sure was easier than trying to stand in the waves and filter water. Will definitely use it again!

Friends brought 2 of these on our 12 day Quetico canoe trip last August. I'm sold! Now I have one for our 12 day Grand Canyon raft and hike trip in April with the Colorado Mountain Club, to help with washing -- both my clothes and me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riverbank Got it for camping, using for home
A good solution to space-challenged households who don't want to use up precious real estate on a rigid bucket. Perfect for our Manhattan apartment. We'll get the camp sink as well.

This packable bucket is useful in so many ways. It will be especially useful when the garden comes in and we start picking those vegetables. Thanks LLBean for wonderful products.

I just got back from a camping trip. This bucket was perfect, easily stored since it lays flat. I used it as a sink for my cookware and the bucket held water for the entire weekend. It is super easy to change out the water since the handle is sturdy and the smaller size made it easy for me to carry. I am a 120 lb woman. Since I camp alone the size was perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NewToCamping2013 I just didn't find much use for this
We just did not use this very often on our trip--it was a little small. In the end I think we used it as a tote for shampoo and soap, to and from the group showers at the campground. Also, we used it for a "bucket bath" with some warm water that I poured on my youngest for her bath. It is the same materials as the packable sink (which we love), but does not hold its shape as well.

This is a terrific substitute for hard sided puckets when camping.
