User Review: Platypus Platy Bottle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $12.95
Excellent water storage for in camp.
- Moderately priced
This particular bottle, the Platy 2L model, is my favorite for backpacking. It rolls up and fits easily into the pouch for the Katadyn Hiker filter when empty, weighs a little over an ounce, and is a great supplement to the filtering system.
I typically fill it once I stop for the night, and it provides sufficient capacity for meals and drinking for the night and the next morning, meaning I only need to filter water once a day. I've also used it as supplemental storage while hiking if I'm in an area where there is a good distance between water sources.
I have had this item for a few years now, getting a few weeks use each year, and it has been durable and flawless.
