Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome for car camping/road trips I've been using these reliably for over a decade and, while the zipper closure does take some care and maintenance, the function of having a couple of these to stash around in empty voids is amazing. For the people who can't figure out the zipper: Keep it clean and use a silicone lubricant to assure a good and easy seal. The silicone does tend to attract dirt, so apply it and then take a pass over the track with a paper towel to remove excess lube. To get that seal, start at one end and pinch. You'll feel it seal if it's lined up properly. Then work your way down the closure, giving a slight bend between forefingers and thumbs, like you're bending a stiff wire, until you feel that subtle "click" of the seal. If you force it and it's not lined up, you can damage the track, so take your time until you get the hang of it. In no time you'll get it and it becomes totally easy. it's worth the learning curve. These things rock. I still have a few that are at least ten years old.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ^6 Liter closure does NOT seal I purchased this based off of my experience with Platypus products in the past which I found superior to most anything, especially on the subject of durability. Unfortunately, the bag seal quit working after 2-3 times. It will not close at all now, rendering the bag useless while still new. As with ever having to send anything back, the postage was just not worth it. After the last 2 years of backpacking, I have yet to see one of any size that 'works.' Lots of gripping and complaining, same issue. Platy let us down on this one. Bag material I will still consider the best in the hydration areana, but.........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bag. Easy to load and flow out too. Be sure to secure the seal on the "zipper-like" closure. Nice carrying handles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Closure Design Almost impossible to get the bag to stay closed. We had a half mile hike from the spring to our camp and lost almost all the water in the bag. We had two new platy water tanks and both had the same issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you don’t need/want to a carry a 5-7 gallon water can Writing this in the midst of a 24-day mountain bike trip. I purchased on a whim hoping it would fill the void between a typical MSR dromedary and the ole Reliance water can. So far, the platy has performed flawlessly. I heeded the advice and pre-treated the zip with food grade mineral oil and we haven’t had an issue, easy to close and stays sealed. The flat bottom is great for picnic table convenience. Holds enough water that we aren’t making a million trips to the spigot (3 adults and 1 toddler). When we pack up to move on it rolls small and disappears into the kitchen box. A welcome addition to a car camping set up for a small crew.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warning: Do not pack in a backpack This product will not function in a way that makes it useful for packing. It will burst and lose all your water. The product description should probably say something to that effect. It's a shame, because they could fix it easily by sticking a slide lock on it and attach the handles to the slide lock. Their sister company has a similar product, MSR DromLite bags, that does function in this way, but tastes terrible. It would be very useful if they came up with a backpacking water storage solution with more than 3L capacity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact, portable,durable I use this platypus mostly for trips in my sea kayak but also car camping. When kayaking I need something that carries an adequate volume but is storable. The water tank fits the bill perfectly. As with other users I have an issue with the zip closure. My work around is to just not use it. I fill the tank from the small opening only. Been using my 6L for over 10 years of trips and it's still going great. Also of note is that the water tastes fine, as opposed to other brands storage bags.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trouble zipping shut Have had the 4.0l 140oz. water tank for awhile and have never been able to zip it shut. Due to new interest in kayaking, I tried it again. No luck, until I put a small amount of EVOO (with a q*tip) on it, put heat on it from a heat gun and gently tapped it close with a 20 oz. peen hammer, Since that is not possible on a trip, any advise on how to fix i? I do like the design and beefy style.

Is the outlet spout a standard water bottle size threaded opening? Was thinking about using this as a large capacity dirty water reservoir and attach a Sawyer mini filter to the outlet.

Asked by: Mazzo
Thanks for the question! The Platypus Water Tank has a standard size pouring spout. Anything with a standard size bottle thread should fit on the pouring spout :)
