      By Tony AU

      from Sydney, Australia

      Verified Reviewer

      • HARD TO CLEAN

      Best Uses

      • Back up water vessel

      Comments about PLATYPUS SoftBottle, 1 L:

      I used this during a cross continental trip and for hikes in Yosemite. The bottle is great as a space saving back up. It takes zero space when empty so you can just pack it just in case. Can be a bit awkward to drink from at first(you will manage to squeeze water all down your shirt at least once). When full, it's just as heavy as a traditional bottle but does conform to the space where it is stored.
      On the downside, the bottle can be a bit difficult to clean with such a small opening. I used salt water to sanitise it when the mouth piece and cap got a stinky. The plastic is fairly robust but thinner and stiffer than that used in your traditional hydration reservoirs. After 3 weeks of solid use, a few 'creases' appeared in the plastic so not sure about long term durability. I probably wouldn't use this as my everyday bottle for that reason.

      • Weighs almost nothing

      Cons

      • Difficult to clean

      Best Uses

      • Day trips
      • Tight packing

      Comments about PLATYPUS SoftBottle, 1 L:

      I don't know who likes this bottle more, me or my 2year old son. We do a lot of walks, short trail hikes, and a lot of traveling and with the push/pull cap it makes very little mess. If only it came with or could buy a bite valve top for it this would be a 5 star.

              I Love these waterbottle, but have been disapointed in the service with this provider.
              • Shipping took over a week.
              • The bottle that was delivered came with the pull top lid not the screw cap closure it describes. After talking to customer service they didn't have any screw cap closures in their warehouse at the writing of this review.

                  Comments about PLATYPUS SoftBottle, 1 L:

                  I really do like this product, did much research on past reviews and knew that it takes getting used to in order to not soak yourself when drinking from it. I order the pop spout with it and that certainly helps. Love it and would buy more

                      Just be careful throwing it around when it is full. The weight can cause it to puncture easier.

                        I got this so I had the option of carrying extra water if need be. It rolls up into my SS nalgene cup so nicely until needed.
                        inexpensive item you will find so may uses for!
