Seattle Sports Puffer Jug
Packs down fairly flat, doesn't take up much room…
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $8.49
Packs down fairly flat, doesn't take up much room in my pack. Has holes at three corners good for hanging when you have nothing handy to set it on or tying to outside of pack. Handy spout, same as large hard containers, for cleaning, cooking, filling.
- Good spout
- See none so far
Have used in my base camp for three different outings. Works great, and has not punctured yet. I use the three holes to hang the container from limbs, when I don't have something handy to set it on, for a handy elevated position.
I fill the container after I set up camp from springs or creeks that I camp near. I use it for my cooking, water bottle refill, and cleaning. Holds around 2.5 gallons, if I remember correctly. I get a couple days out of it between fillings and that includes personal hygiene cleaning.
Is made from soft flexible plastic. I was worried for its durability, especially the seams being smashed in my pack for lengthy periods. However, it is fairly thick and seems to be holding up fine. At the $8.49 I paid locally for this product and how well it has worked so far I'm sure this won't be my last.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Flexible yet strong, the Seattle Sports Puffer Jug water container puffs up to carry up to 2 gallons of water and collapses flat when empty for low-profile storage after camping or backpacking.
