User Review: Platypus plusBottle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Cabelas
The same volume as any Nalgene without the trouble of a bulky bottle when empty or full.
- Easy to carry
I carried this bottle along with two one-liter Nalgenes for Philmont. I only used for when I needed to carry extra water on the trail or at a dry camp so I only used it about half the 12-day trek. Every time I used it it performed exceptionally and even when I didn't have it filled it did exactly what it was supposed to do.
Unlike a Nalgene that takes up the same amount of space whether full or not, the Platypus plusBottle offers a handle and small drinking nozzle with the ability to fold up and reduce the space it takes up when empty. I never used the drinking nozzle the Platypus comes with at Philmont but it does work well.
I had no issues with the bottle leaking or ever failing me at any time. These bottles do seem to be a little bit pricey than regular bottles but for the space they save it is well worth it.
