Platypus does what it promises. Easy to use, astounding how fast the water flow is compared to 'normal' plastic bottles with Push-Pull cap, which makes it easy to quickly drink the required amount of water. I was a little wary of the cap leaking if the bottle was not placed or held upright, but this was not the case at all.

Packable water carrier
I tend to take one of the Platypus soft bottles with the push pull cap on most walks. It's really light, can easily be stuffed into a pack packet and the push pull cap works well. My only reservation was about durability because one bottle appeared to be delaminating. However, it was only because the graphics are applied on a sticker applied to the outside which after lots of use started to peel at the bottom. It didn't impact on the function of the bottle but was a bit unsightly hence dropping one star.

My go-to water bottle
I've been using Platypus bottles for about 15 years. They are very light, and when empty take up almost no pack space. They are also very tough for their weight, though I've had a few that eventually gave out and started leaking, usually at joins or fold-points. But then, nothing lasts for ever. They can also be used with Platypus hydration hoses.

Appears to be Good Quality
Appears to be of solid construction. Haven't tested it yet. Slightly expensive, but no other options really.
