Collapsable water bottle that does not taint the taste.


  • Light
  • No taste
  • Shrinks down when used up.
  • Has a clip-on carabiner.


  • Sharp edges, snaggy and could tear mesh holders.
  • Not much capacity.
  • Folds can wear and cause leaks.

Kind of a niche product, but it's cool for carrying when a regular water bottle would be too large and bulky. Or you want to shrink it down when used, like carrying wine into the backcountry.

I like to stuff in my pocket when skiing (can hold other liquids as well!) and much nicer if you fall and jam it into your ribs than a hard bottle.

I am on my second one as the first leaked, but it was a free over the counter exchange and the second one seems better.
