Fjallraven Water Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent solution for water storage and carrying—lightweight, compact, and durable. Before purchasing this bucket I'd been using the Russian-made water bucket of such kind for 6 years. I was very satisfied with such solution, because it makes carrying the water from a nearby source (up to 10-15 liters / 20-30 lbs at once) and its storage in your camp extremely easy. Fjallraven Water Bag demonstrates its freestanding ability with 10L (20 lbs) of water inside Unlike various plastic water storage… Full review

Sea to Summit Folding Bucket

rated 3 of 5 stars l like being able to carry water back to the campsite and this works great, except as others have said it spills easily. Overall like this bucket and will continue to use. I like the fact that I can fill and get comfy to pump water into my bottles. Full review

Sea to Summit Folding Bucket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Lightweight bucket made of sturdy material is great for hauling water back to your campsite. Unfortunately, it can also be easy to tip over. This 10 L bucket definitely has good capacity for holding water. In the past we would fill up a bunch of Platypus bottles, but you would have to bring a lot of them. We found it to be useful when you need to collect water to filter. It allows you to carry your water back to camp to be used for filtering or cooking instead of having to use your cooking pot or… Full review

L.L.Bean Packable Bucket

rated 5 of 5 stars Yes, it is just a bucket...but this summer it has become a fixture in our camping and canoe camping gear outfit. It works much better for us than our old rigid plastic bucket, and we have come to depend on having it at the campsite. It is very reasonably priced, and has been very durable. I was unaware that LL Bean carried this item, until it showed up in one of their sales...for $17.95. With a $10 coupon, I was able to get the item for only $7.95 (it lists for $19.95, and I probably would pay that… Full review

Sea to Summit Kitchen Sink

rated 3 of 5 stars Sea to Summit Kitchen Sink 20l This is a water carrying device/container that folds for easy packing. I have a few sizes of these (5L, 10, 20L, and the Folding Bucket). See the picture for all 4 together. They pack small. This one is the largest at 20l, about the size of a package of frozen vegetables so it is a little big. This one really is nearly the size of kitchen sink.  It's a folding, self supporting waterproof container. While they are good for washing, they are better just as something… Full review

Sea to Summit Kitchen Sink

rated 3 of 5 stars Sea to Summit Kitchen Sink 10l This is a water carrying device/container that folds for easy packing. I have a few sizes of these (5L, 10, 20L, and the Folding Bucket). See the picture for all 4 together. They pack small.  This one is the second smallest at 10l, about half the size of a paperback book. Kitchen sink might not be the best name. It's a folding, self supporting waterproof container, not just for washing dishes. While they are good for washing, they are better just as something to… Full review

Sea to Summit Kitchen Sink

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bought the 5 liter sink a few years ago. It is great for its intended use of washing up dishes at the campsite. I bought the 5 liter sink a few years ago, and it has held up under pretty rigorous use while backpacking and at base camps. It is great for its intended use of washing up dishes at the campsite, but its use is only limited by your imagination. I've used it to shave, as a bucket to carry water, when painting watercolours while on the trail, inverted as a food cover to keep the flies away… Full review

Sea to Summit Folding Bucket

rated 5 of 5 stars Sea to Summit 10l Folding Bucket: This is a folding bucket, in the same family as the Sea to Summit Kitchen Sinks. This one packs the smallest even though it holds 10l. This one is the bucket which packs the smallest. It doesn’t have the wire support in the rim of the kitchen sinks and it isn’t very self supporting. It’s really good for carrying water, but it isn’t that easy to get it to stand upright. You can see in the picture that I did get it to stand up, but it could easily fall over… Full review
