Price Paid: can't recall
Years ago, I can't remember how long ago it was, I purchased a Platypus that held 4 liters and had a full zip closure on the top. It served me well for at least 6 years but slowly over that time it became increasingly hard to close the zip as it seems the plastic became stiff. But I like the product enough to buy the new one.
It seems to be made of a softer and more flexible type of material. I take the 4 liter size as it allows me to go further and longer between fill ups and I converted it to a hydration bladder. I can also hang it from a tree or lay it on a big rock and take a shower with it.
I do like Platypus products for durability and low weight and if the new one lasts at least as long as my old one its worth the current retail price of $27.
