I purchased this needing a water reservoir for around camp when backpacking. It does that just as expected. Highly recommended for that.
I just finished a short backpacking trip where no water existed at camp - hence we had to haul it all in. We ended up strapping it onto a pack. I was worried it would potentially break and start leaking. Just the opposite, though! It held up very well - no holes or cracks to speak of. Great product!
