Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coleman 2 Gallon Party Stacker(TM) Jug (Sports)
I live in Africa and bought two of these for camping - we frequently go away to a place where there's no running water or electricity - I thought a couple of these would be great for water and ice tea or crystal lite - fill them half with ice, and you're good to go with cold liquids for a whole weekend... except.... one leaks really badly around the tap (as others have also stated), and with both of them you have to have the top half unscrewed in order to avoid a vacuum being created inside where you can't get any liquids out and the top is sucked so tight that you can't unscrew it... and guess what... you leave it half unscrewed, and your ice doesn't last very long and ants and sand are more than happy to take up residence in your lovely clean water... not happy at all.... I bought the 5 gallon square coleman cooler for someone else and it's brilliant - plan on getting one myself now and chucking these useless things that I had shipped half way around the world... not impressed!
