    Does the job, many other uses

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like to fill this bag with water, and hang it at camp so I can use my MSR water pump in comfort, rather than hunched over a creek or lake.

    I've filled it with crawdads as a holding tank, used it to pack out wet trash, and hung it to catch rain off my tarp (not much).

    It is obsurdly expensive, but extremely packable and light weight. I tend to fold it with a rubber_band, and place it in with my water filter.

    The main drawback: it will not stand on it's own. I hang it from tree branches or from my clotheslines, often using a belt.



    It's extremely small and packable.

    Absurdly expensive, but very useful

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So tiny, so light. So expensive.



    Still, you only have to buy it once ... and every time you use it you will realize that nothing else comes close to providing the versatility (with so little weight penalty) that this bucket does.



    I use mine for dipping out water to filter (because pouring it from the bucket is the easiest way to fill my Sawyer squeeze).



    I also use mine as a sink for dirty dishes and such. It makes an ideal "last wet dirty thing" to deal with before bugging out of camp, and it cleans and dries easily.

    Good and useful, but overpriced

      This thing does what it says, and does it well, but it seems ridiculously overpriced for what is basically a stuff sack with handles instead of a drawcord. An ultra-sil stuff sack of comparable size is just over 10 dollars, and this thing is 30 bucks. This thing probably even uses less material than the stuff sack. Its invaluable for smothering fires with dirt, snow, and/or water. Unless you absolutely need a bucket to carry water, I'd just use some other bag if you need to transport snow or dirt for fire smothering. I often use my eVent compression dry sack for my sleeping bag to transport dirt and snow to bury fires with and they work fine (Although i can understand if people don't want to fill their sleeping bag storage container with dirt!). The included storage container thing or "stuff sack" is pretty pointless. I don't see why you wouldn't just stuff the bucket somewhere into your pack, it would probably not use up any more space than it would by putting it in the included stuff sack (which weighs more than the bucket itself). I ended up returning it because for what it is I just couldn't justify spending 30 bucks.
