Flexible, no leaking, multiple attachment points. I use it as a refill source for water bottles while bicycling. Fits in or on a trunk pack easily, shrinks to minimal size as it is emptied.

    I just took this on a weekend backpack trip. It carries a surprising amount of water for the actual size. I used it to fill up my Nalgene bottle after drinking my first liter of water. When emptied, it folded up nicely and stowed away in my pack. I like that there is multiple ways to attach it to my backpack. It has a unique fill spout that works well. It seems like quality that will last for many trips. A bargain at the sale price.

    I have the 4L (paid full price elsewhere), and have used it backpacking for a number of years - lots of trips. I started packing (years ago) with 4 1qt nalgene bottles, migrated to large bladders, then platypus bottles, and have now settled on one 1qt nalgene bottle to drink from, and the pack tap as my main water hauler. I went this route because I can't mix gatorade in a bladder, and this setup saves considerable weight over carrying 4 or 5 nalgene bottles. I keep the pack tap in the pack until I get to camp. I don't fear freezing as a source of damage, but do want water, not a frozen block of ice in a bag, so I keep it in the tent/shelter with me at night. It has never leaked.

    The pack tap is essentially in three parts: a bag, a cover, and a plug/tap. The bag is a mylar water container, and is like the mylar bags you get in a bulk wine box. Replacement mylar bags can be ordered from Sea to Summit, but I've never needed one. The nylon cover protects the mylar just fine. The tap fills from a removeable rubbery (I don't know the material) plug with a simple tap in it. You use your fingers to pull out the plug to fill it. A black plastic cover protects the plug/tap.

    I wouldn't carry this outside the pack where it could be poked by sharp branches or banged against granite. It might hold up fine, but I don't care or need to find out. Carried inside the pack, it's well protected. Most people who look at this fear the weak point is the plug/tap, which looks like it could pop out under pressure or drip-leak from the tap. I thought it would when I bought it, and expected to use a customer satisfaction guarantee to return it. But it has never leaked or popped out. In fact, I carry it on top of the rest of my gear in the pack (including a view camera), and from experience know not to fear leakage. (I do keep everything damageable by water in ultralight dry bags, but not for fear of this product leaking.)

    The only other thing some fear is that your fingers will contaminate the plug when you pull it out - that's where the drinking water flows out. I personally simply keep that in mind when filling, and wash my hands before pulling the plug if I need to. That's worked fine for me.

    Hike your own hike, do what works for you. For me, this is an excellent product which works very well. At STP's price, this thing is a steal. If the size is right for you, go for it. Then test it before you send it back. It's way stronger and better designed than it looks or feels.

    Loved the idea, but I agree with the reviewer who thought it was a sort of flimsy lining. I am not sure it would last very long. Otherwise the design is a great idea!

    • This should be hand washed. The bladder with regular dish soap, and the cover with a mild detergent.

About Sea To Summit

The idea behind Sea to Summit started back in 1990 when an ambitious Aussie named Tim Macartney-Snape hiked solo from India’s Bay of Bengal all the way to the top of Mount Everest -- without oxygen. Tim’s expedition, the first-ever sea-to-summit ascent of Everest (8,848 meters of elevation gain), took four months. After returning to Australia, Tim and friend Roland Tyson launched the Sea to Summit brand with the intent to produce innovative, lightweight and well-made outdoor gear for fellow adventurers. Today, Sea to Summit dry bags, sleeping bags, multi-purpose tarps and paddling accessories are sold all over the world.
