Rated 3 out of 5áby NJBackpacker SO easy to spill
Pros: lightweight, tiny, good for backpacking. Use for transporting water to the campsite only, then pour into other containers.
Cons: very easy to spill. "Free standing" - don't bet on it. You can set it down verrry carefully on very flat ground and tiptoe away but don't plan on washing dishes with it or anything like that. Breathe on it wrong and whoosh! 10 liters of water you just schlepped goes all over the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MaineDogs Small but mighty
When space is at a premium, this is the only bucket to have. It folds up very small for storage, is lightweight, but opens to a good sized bucket and is strong enough to fill with water without stressing the handle.

little bucket I can't wait to use it on my next adventure I actually bought a solar shower and I placed it in the same bag, so I do not forget it. I might order the big one also.

as a backpacker and canoe camper having a bucket to refil water bottles and doing dishes is a nice item to have this is lightweight and folds into its own small bag for packing away.

Great product!! Husband is very happy with it. It is well worth the $. Ideal for the backpacker. Trust me, you will never know how you have gone so long without one. Very easy to get back into the zippered pouch. Nice smaller handle to aid with pouring. Freestanding form when filled. A++++++++++

Rated 5 out of 5áby BackpackDad Bucket benefits
Product performs well and as described. I used it backpacking in Baxter State Park with my 12 & 13 year old boys in Mid-October to collect water for easy filtering. No more awkward standing positions while I try to manipulate intake and output hoses and multiple nalgene bottles. Made it easy for kids to do it. A little harder to scoop from standing water than with than a rigid bucket but with a little practice it worked out well. Very easy to use with flowing or falling water. Several reviews mention difficulty refolding but this did not seem to be a problem. On the manufacturer's web site there is a brief video that clearly demonstrates how to do it. I bought the 10 liter version - a well made product that will be going with me on every trip.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Quester Great Product
First time reviewer, but i noticed this little product had no reviews and it deserves at least one - if not more. I bought this bucket this past April for a backpack trip on the AT. At first my friends thought i was crazy for taking it along (although it weighs practically nothing and takes up little space, when you're working to reduce weight each ounce counts) and i'm pretty sure i heard a chuckle or two. But by the end of the first day everyone was very thrilled that we had this with us. We had to make several trips to and from a pump almost a 1/4 mile away and this little bucket more than held up. it's constructed out of quality material, stands very well on its own (on mostly flat surfaces) and the bottom handle comes in very handy. this made water filtering a breeze and packs away easily in its own zip bag for storage. well worth throwing in your pack.
