Got 4 for a hiking trip and the first 2 I tried leaked straight away - seem to both have holes in the plastic near the opening. Disappointing. The other two so far are ok, though haven’t started the 5 day hike yet so we’ll have to see how the hold up.
We are sorry to hear this. We have sent you a personal email to resolve this. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
Safe Travels, Laura
I was reluctant to purchase this product as I avoid plastic in any form. But guess what, this is an absolute game changer. Compact lightweight and multipurpose. My second platypus I have purchased as I love my 2 l one I have used on hiking trips, at the gym travelling abroad, also as a hot water bottle while camping in cold weather, nothing happened to the bottle itself! Even tho I was worried to store hot water as wasn’t sure if the lid won’t leak. Worked perfectly I even use it as a pillow just covered with towel. Absolutely amazing product
This is to replace a Platypus that I lost recently. over the years I took it ski-ing, climbing, mountain walking and most times outdoors needing a water bottle. On a bike I carry standard bidons but have used my Platypus as a hydration bladder on multi-day bike rides - needs the mouth valve and tube for that, though. Great for sub-zero temperatures because you can carry it in a map pocket next to your body and it won't freeze. Or you can freeze it for really hot outings. All in all, one of my favourite items of kit.
I've had about 3 before. They always last a couple of years of rugged use - we'll worth the price.
I’ve had numerous Platypus containers over the last twenty years or so, I’ve always been extremely pleased with their snug fit in my rucksack, either with a drinking tube or not. They’re also great in the car to keep you hydrated on a long journey.
