Evernew Water Carry
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $10
Lightweight plastic water carry imparts no taste to drinking water. Tapered construction makes these reservoirs easy to handle and the gusseted bottom allows them to stand upright.
- Cap is attached to unit.
- Gusseted bottom allows reservoir to stand upright.
- Shock cord loop holds bag in rolled position for storage.
- Performane is questionable—bags developed leaks.
What first attracted me to this product was the availability of it in the 1.5 liter capacity. Evernew offers four sizes of these reservoirs: 600 ml, 900 ml, 1500 ml and 2000 ml.
The 1.5 liter reservoir is especially handy for transporting wine, and precisely holds the contents of a magnum-size bottle. The threads on the filler neck are compatible with other brands of hydration tubes and filtration systems.
These reservoirs also have some other great features. The first is the integrated cap holder. No more searching for a missing cap or having the cap falling into contaminated water while filtering. These reservoirs also feature a shock cord attached just below the filler neck. The shock cord is used to keep the empty unit rolled up for storage.
The polyethylene construction imparts no taste to the water (or wine) inside. The sides of the reservoir are tapered for ease of handling. The gusseted bottom of the reservoir allows it to self-stand.
I would have rated this product with five stars if two of them had not developed leaks after relatively few uses. Both of them leaked right below the filler neck, where the filler neck is fused to the polyethylene sides. There was no appreciable wear on either of these, making the unexpected and untimely leaks that much more exasperating.

The Evernew Water Carrier can be used as a collapsible water bottle or it can be combined with their Hydration Tube(Sold Separately) to make a backpack bladder.
