Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnyM Worked for me, your mileage may vary.
I was very hesitant to get this at first due to all the lackluster reviews, but took a chance when it came up on the daily sale. I have to say it works pretty well, testing it at home by filling it to the top and sealing it then using it. The top closed fine, it was prone to collapse when I left the top opened to soak. There has been changes to the item: it's more grey than white, and the instructions for the nozzle are now on two plastic hanging tags on the nozzle instead of printed. I did not find the nozzle hard to open or close, one or two handed. I have not used this more than 3 times, but it's a pretty useful portable carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OutsideandLovingIt Awesome water container
This is perfect for my uses. When car camping, I fill the bag with nearby water to have it handy at campsite. It's best use is to hang it from the light post or tree. No spillage and easy to operate one handed with all the weight of the water making it stable.
When backpacking, this folds up to next to nothing. I can then fill up at water source with a filter, as much as desired at camping spot. Then, I have easy access water ( and even a mini bath with the water flow). When leaving camp, I transfer what is needed to water bottles, fold up and put in backpack. THANK YOU LLBEAN for this awesome product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by almostmainer Great concept--awkward to handle
We'd hope this would be useful for transporting water to our boat useful there but it's too hard to manage, and agree that it takes two hands to use faucet successfully without water all over the deck. Sorry to be returning it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GalenaNightfire Great Water Bag
For river runners and other outdoor enthusiasts familiar with the operation of dry bags and collapsible buckets, this bag will be easy to use. For others, it could use better instructions (e.g., ya gotta roll/fold the top edges over the taping at the top of the bag at least three times before buckling it, to form a good seal; and set the full bag on a level surface to avoid tipping). Lack of clear instructions aside, this is a great bag! It is sturdy, easy to use and holds a lot of water. Then when you are done with it, you just roll it up and pack it away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by beanerations disappointed
Pro: holds a good amount of water / very portable / easy to clean/
you could anchor it upright by the strap - but otherwise the fall over and leak issue is huge
Con: it falls over and leaks / it is almost impossible to turn the spout on and off with one hand - so if you have a container to fill you have to have a place to put the container down so you can turn the water on and off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CamperGoe Disappointed
Returned the item after 1st use. In the sales picture it shows a bag of water standing up. Well you fill the bag and it repeatedly falls over, plus it then leaks all over the place because it can't be sealed.
On the positive side, the material was thick and would have lasted many season had it functioned as needed.
