Having a few extra gallons of water around just makes things easier. Unfortunately, having a giant, empty container around doesn’t.

Therein lies the beauty of the Platypus Water Tanks. Collapsible by nature, they pack flat for efficient packing and our Big Zip opening makes filling and cleaning a breeze.

The 4L tank weighs a mere 103g making it just as practical for group backpacks and river trips as it is for summers on the road.


New features include a new, more durable film, a lower, more stable design and reinforced handles for easy carrying.

Really Good!

Found it a little tricky to fill initially but it is easy to carry and, more importantly, dead easy to pour. I've been using an Ortlieb water bag up until now and you always seem to need three hands to pour from it. No such problem with this carrier and it packs flat and dries easily. One star deducted because it's a bit pricey.

Lightweight with different fill opening

This was bought for conventional campsite camping. The ziploc opening can be tricky to use with high level tap, also if filled even a fraction over 4l the ziploc closure pops open.

great idea but...
Monday, 21 July 2014  | 

I've had a few of these (2x 6ltr + 1x 2.5Ltr) and there are two issues with the top seal:
1> it's not actually that easy to seal - several times I've thought it was closed only to slop water everywhere (including the boot of my car)
2> I've had the weld bonding the seal strip to the bag fail twice. Once was replaced without question, the second was over a year old so I've not tried.

on the plus side when they work they are good ...they are very light and pack flat when empty.

Response:

Sorry to hear you've had these problems with items bought from elsewhere in the past. We haven't had any issues with any of the products we've sold so far. Don't forget you have a fantastic guarantee coverage with Platypus in the event of such closure failures.
