This item, like everything Platypus makes, is light, strong, and takes up zero space when empty as it folds flat. Made in the USA a big selling point for me. I have used other Platypus products for years without a single failure of any kind, I expect this bottle will perform just as well.

What else is there to say? Probably the lightest waterbottle I've ever owned, and it holds an additional liter of water when you need it. I have one for long distance bike tripping, to keep extra water on long stretches between towns, but it would be equally useful for a backpacker or other adventurer. Get one!

It's a nice bottle and does what it says. However, because the mouth is at the end, it causes the two halves of the bottle to separate near the mouth piece, which in turn creates a perpetual air bubble before you get to any water. You could turn the bottle upside down and let the air rise I suppose, but personally, I think it would have been better if the mouth piece was on one of the sides rather than at the top.

These little collapsible bottles are quite nice. I have used them backpacking, and they also work well for sneaking a bottle of water into the movie theater, as they are sort of flat when full and fit into the cargo pocket of my shorts inconspicuously. After getting one to see how it works, I got several more for an upcoming overseas trip. They'll pack down well, but allow us to use reusable bottles on our trip.
