Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best "bang for the ounce" in light weight backpacking. I have several of these Platy bottles and absolutely love them. They are surprisingly durable for the relatively thin and very lightweight material that they are made out of. The 2L version weighs in at just 1.3 oz, and the 2.5L will still be well under 2 oz. Also nice is the fact that these bottles don't leave a nasty plastic aftertaste in your water and they are BPA free. Want a super cheap and light weight hydration system? Buy the 'Platypus Drink Tube Kit' and connect it to one of these bottles and presto! I always carry an extra Platy bottle in my pack just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for backpacking light. Used for a 4-5 day backpacking trip. Mainly for shower/cooking/washing at camp. Light weight, great capacity, clean taste, collapsible, durable, impact resistant. Only problem is hard to fill in lake or stream. I used a rigid smart water bottle to fill up in lake or stream and pour into this 2L platy. Any rigid water bottle/Gatorade would work. One more small complaint is that is takes a long time to dry at home with the cap off. Takes like 3 days to dry. Not a big deal. I still love this water bottle and will be my go to for backpacking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic water bottle. Light and portable. Carries 2 litres!! No regrets with this purchase. This probably took off a quarter of a pound off my load, which I would otherwise be carrying in the form of a conventional water bottle. The material seems solid and durable - I have no qualms tucking this into half and shoving it into my day pack. The container carries an ample amount of water should you decide to fill it to the brim. Perfect for two persons on a day trip. Really basic product. No frills and no gimmicks. As a water container, I can't ask for anything more than this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to pack, light weight, but has it's cons. Pros- light weight, easy to pack away when empty, easy to tell how much water you have left.,,,,Cons- flimsy when getting empty, easy to squeeze and accidently spill water when handling, hard to get back into backpacks side pockets because it has no stiff structure.,,,,Overall if you need a packable bottle this is the one to get. The con's aren't deal breakers, and I think the packability ( I rolled mine up) might out weigh them. Just don't use you're kung fu grip while drinking and you'll be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I put this in my dog's pack this past weekend when we went backpacking. I got the type with the screw on cap and it stayed nice and tight in her pack the whole time! Even though my hyper lab was running around with it in her pack, it didn't leak at all! When she finished all her water, I just folded it up and let her carry something of mine, so I thought it was great! Not sure how she felt about that though! haha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and durable water bottle. I use this bottle for trips where I may have to carry an entire days worth of water or when water supplies are infrequent. It packs down to and ways almost nothing when not in use and works perfectly with the hose system from my Platypus bladder, so when that is empty I just have to switch the hose and I keep drinking! It's made from the same material as other platypus bottles so you know it can be trusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable water Very useful water system not quite as durable as a good old fashion water bottle but for the weight you can't complain. If you are in an arid environment like I am you need to brig a lot of water because I gone on three day trips and never found water. This is an easy way to carry a lot of water and it sacrifice weight(except for the water itself). Good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stow-away I picked up one of these once I realized that it holds more than two nalgenes worth of fluid for the same price. The compact design got my attention as well, as I can roll it up to the size of a small TV remote! The bottle is a little tipsy (I found this out after spilling half of it on my friend's sleeping bag) but just remember to cap it and your set!,,,,
