- Q & A
Strange shape, but packable
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm not convinced this shape is the best, and it doesn't seem nearly as durable as the traditional 5 gallon water carriers everyone uses camping, but I do like how small it packs down. It might be good for a river trip where space is at a premium and you need to filter river water for drinking.
It's great that it collapses to it's narrow shape when empty. Otherwise, this design has me confused. As you fill with water the middle rectangle sections push out, but it doesn't create a stable platform to stay upright, so it's bound to fall over. You are better off leaving it on it's side. I imagine it will have a tendency to fall over and the spout will constantly end up in the dirt.
The price is great, and it get's the job done, so I will keep it and give it a try.
Perfect For Neat Freaks
When you have used all the water, it rolls up for easy storage in a bin or cabinet, great and functional idea.
