Nice for day hikeing - does not leak

I use a Playpus 1-pint bottle sometimes, and was curious to see how this bottle works. Its sides are much more flexible than Platypus, that is, the Kompressor bottle material folds easily. It doesn't stretch. The top and bottom are rigid, so it will keep the bottle shape and stand up on a flat surface. As you drink out of the bottle using the bite valve, the bottle collapses as the volume is reduced. To keep the shape, you can always blow air back into the bottle. In the middle of a hike, I like the partially deflated bottle. It tucks easily under a pack strap or stuffs into a pocket.

The combination of the wide mouth twist top plus the bite valve is great. It just doesn't leak, so I can put everything in the main pack compartment and not worry about getting my phone, camera, or car keys wet.

I am looking forward to using the bag as an ice bag the next time my knee acts up. The wide mout will make it easy to load with ice cubes, the flexibility will let it drape over the sore area, and ... it will not leak! I know, I already said that.
