Perfect for Certain Situations
on April 26, 2015
I've had one of these for over twenty years but somehow managed to lose it, so I ordered a replacement without any hesitation. Please understand these aren't the best for some purposes, as the container takes on an awkward shape when filled, and wouldn't hold up well when full if packed with other cargo. There are other designs better suited to hauling your sole water supply for a weekend camping trip. You'd want a rigid container for something like that.
Where this jug shines is a unique temporary use I have. I often take my pickup camper on long trips to places with no provisions to refill the water tank from a hose. Most places do have some sort of spigot, however, so I use this jug to transfer the water.
It rests nicely on my shoulder as I refill my camper's tank. Thanks to the collapsible design, I can easily squeeze the sides to speed up the transfer. I added a short piece of hose to the jug's spigot to make the process easier.
Best of all, when not in use, this jug collapses to about 2" thick for easy storage. A jug like this would also work well for tent camping, etc. if you had limited storage space and knew you could fill it upon arrival. As long as I don't lose this one, it should serve me well for many years to come.
