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.

We used the portable bucket for the first time on a camping trip last weekend. It turned out that we had water and a sink close by, but it was handy anyway for storing cooking supplies. It folds up flat when not using it. I can see where it will be very handy for future camping trips.

Little did we know that we'd be using these buckets that I just happened to toss in my suitcase every day, twice a day, to draw water out of our cistern, and then we would pump from one to the other to filter the water. We were constantly thankful for having them...they are light, so they are easy to pack and don't add to the weight of the water you're carrying. Very well-made and more than worth their weight in gold to our team!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCACutie I like it!
I purchased this as an all-purpose, maybe emergency item and its great. As others have said it will stand up on its own without water in it and it folds flat very easily. It seems well constructed. I am storing emergency kitchen/food prep supplies in it at the moment... I imagine this bucket could be used for almost anything. Really glad I purchased it!
