Rated 5 out of 5áby Hershb328 Love this thing.
I drink a minimum of 2 liters per day and Im tired of aluminum and plastic water bottles hogging up my backpack and cup-holders especially when they are empty. When I finish one of these bags I can easily fold it up and throw it in my backpack for the day. For 8 bucks it is a solid construction and I would recommend to anybody looking for this style of water bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LindyLoo wonderful product
I bought this to go with previous ones since I travel a lot to countries where you can't drink the water. I keep one filled (after adding purifying tablets) and one to take on the road. Saves lots of plastic bottles from the landfill.
I have also used these to fill with wine to take on travels so I don't take the chance of broken glass. Never had a problem!

Rated 4 out of 5áby mdombrofski Great water bottle - hope I don't lose the cap!
Great water bottle - reminds me of an IV bag - delivers a torrent of water when squeezed which a appreciated especially when very thirsty Only recommendation is to add a way to attach the cap permanently to the bottle so you don't lose the cap. In my first several uses, sure enough, I dropped the cap but fortunately was able to recover it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Junebug147 happy with product
The only problem I see is that it is too easy to lose the cap--this happened to me, so I bought a cap with a mouthpiece...hope I don't lose it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby amlbones Great for international travel
We used to carry a couple Nalgene bottles when we traveled to other countries so we could sterilize our own water with our Steri Pen. That saved money for us and saved plastic bottles from being thrown into landfills all over the world.
The Nalgene were heavier than the Platypus and bulky - even when half empty. Platypus has solved our problems! We took 2 to Ecuador and had no trouble with them. They still work with our Steri Pen (the kind with the rubber collar), are very light to carry, still reasonably easy to drink from, collapse down as they get emptied and can even be rolled up and fit in a pocket when completely empty! Fabulous product.
The only difficulty is that the bottom edges of the Platypus come to 90 degree angles. These plastic corners catch on mesh pockets. I'm too afraid to trim them for fear that the bottle will leak, so I just deal with it. O.K., Bean. How about making rounded corners on your terrific Platypus bottles? :-)

Rated 5 out of 5áby HikerPatW Great product!
These bottles are so handy for hiking. They are collapsible, lightweight and durable. I have purchased three (2 different sizes). We use water bottles for powdered drinks and reserve these for "plain" water. The first one has held up through 3 seasons of hiking!

Rated 5 out of 5áby stormking Platypus Is All About Quality
Great for any adventure, anywhere. Mine is stuffed in an external pocket of my backpack since I don't use a bladder. Fits perfect & easy to get to for a drink along the trail. Also highly recommended for day hikes where size really does matter. Gets smaller the more you hydrate. Weighs less than an ounce & literally takes up no space when folded up.
I've been using Platypus "SoftBottle's" since they first came out. They last for many years & when they do not work as promised anymore, Cascade Designs will swap out your old bottle for a brand new one. This company has an iron-clad, lifetime warranty on many of their products. Practical technology that works.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Shopgirl44 Great design and packable.
So packable love the design. I purchased three different designs and didn't noticed the cap on this one was different. I though of returning but we are traveling next week.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Gideon52 The perfect 1 liter bottle for ultralight hiking
I've owned several of these and just purchased some more. They're perfect for ultralight backpacking...some advantages:
- They're super light at 25.5 grams or .9 oz
- They fit the side pockets of all my packs really well and they "stay" put; with other round water bottles they'll slip out when you take your pack off for a breat
- The threads fit my Sawyer Squeeze water filter; I use 1 bag to collect/carry unfiltered water and then I carry two more for clean/filtered water.
Here's a tip; you can take the flip top drinking cap off a bottle of "Smart" (brandname) water bottle and it'll fit perfectly on these. I put 2 on the bottles I use for clean water and leave the plain screw on cap on the one I use for unfiltered water.
These are lighter than most PET water bottles, stay put in the pack, are supper strong and work with my filter...perfect.
