Product Description

Take your own clean water to the campsite in a 5-gallon Coleman Water Carrier. Just remove the spigot to quickly fill it with ice and water, and then turn the valve to get the water going. Two molded handles, one on the top and one on the front, make carrying easy. You can even hang it from a post or tree for easy access without cracking or denting the carrier. When the fun is done, the carrier folds flat for compact storage.

I like that these bottles are so cheap, have free shipping, are a white see through color so that I can see the water level and see if there is anything that should not be inside in it, have a removable spigot on the side, and they are collapsible. The bottles are relatively thinner plastic so I will not use that feature much in order to not stress out the bottles. They do the job for the cheapest amount of money I've found and that's basically what I like them for. I will get heavy duty quality water bottles in the future, I think.

Update 4-24-13
I also like that these bottles are really easy and very lightweight to carry. I leant some to my mother and she loved them. They're very easy to carry compared to a standard 5 gallon water bottle, even the wide mouth blue bottle with the tap. Although I like both.

I did get the bottle that leaked. It had a torn seam right out of the box. I had read that could happen in the reviews. I wish they were made sturdier, and then they'd be almost perfect. But, if you're willing to bet that you don't get too many leaky bottles, this is good. I think I would in the future just because of all of the great things about it. I'll see and I'll update my review later.

This is a piece of junk. On first use i noticed it is nearly impossible to prevent a leak from the threads. After a couple of uses sitting on picnic tables or the ground, multiple punctures have developed, that I have had to patch. The plastic is cheap and easily punctures. Its depressing to get to the middle of nowhere and find an empty container with water all over the floor of your trunk. Coleman products are cheap, you get what you pay for. I am done with buying Coleman.

I have two of these, I no longer use them though. The first one , the valve screw broke and the second one had a leak in the seam.

I ended up buying a 7 gallon hard plastic jug

OK I have used this product for 3 years, on 4 camping trips, and the verdict is in...Pass on This! Yeah it hold 5 gallons, but..it is TOO floppy. It frequently rolls of the picnic table onto the ground and gets covered in dirt, (GOOD POINT it doesn't break when it falls over) however the "Faucet tap" does! When it fell on our last trip, the faucet broke. And it leaked from day one (At the faucet) Unless you NEED something flexible, and collapsible, get a hard container...WE did.

We bought several Coleman 5 gallon expandable water carriers about 2006, primarily for emergency water storage during hurricanes. We have used one of them for camping ever since, two to three times per year, 3-5 days each time. It doesn't get banged around, but we don't baby it, either.

We have had no problems with it, no leaks, no problems with the spigot. When it is full, the weight of the water may distort the threads on the filling throat, so you have to be a little careful putting the cap on, but this is easy to do. Just pinch the throat so it is round.

When it is folded up, the creases have sharp fold points which I suspect may someday turn into small holes, but after six years ours is still fine.

One nuisance, which I suspect is unavoidable, is getting it thoroughly dry before putting it away. The technique I use is to wash it well, and drain it more or less fully expanded with the opening down. There will still be droplets inside, so I pump it like an bellows two or three times to get the humid air out, and let it sit some more. Repeat as needed, usually several times over a couple days.

Since oil is a lot more expensive than in 2006, it is at least possible that the newer water jugs are made with thinner walls than ours. Pure speculation on my part, though that would explain why there are so many complaints about leaks.

This needs a vent plug to make the water flow out of the spigot faster. Plus when you turn the spigot to open it for water flow, the hole is not the same size as the spigot tube. I took a small sharp knife though and opened the hole up a lot and now a lot more flows out when I open the spigot. And make sure you screw the top on tight by screwing it counter-clockwise a couple of turns to seat it right and then screwing it clockwise to tighten it up; otherwise it'll probably leak around the cap or spigot. And wash it out first with a little bleach and water, so that you don't have plastic tasting water.

Those reviewers who complain of how fragile this product is had unfair expectations of this product - you can't hold 5 gallons of water in such a light weight and packable container and expect to be able to throw it around. It must be handled carefully when full of water. The water flow can easily be increased by pulling out the white pour spout and drilling the small hole in it until it is wider.

Ordered 2 of these for Labor Day camping trip. One was fine but the other has a slow leak around the valve. I told Amazon about it but they wanted it returned at my cost, which was ridiculous--so I kept it for additional storage, put it where it didn't matter, and am merely an unhappy customer. The jug which operated properly does so at a slow trickle, which is annoying when you're filling a heavy container. All in all not impressed but cheap and a lot better than being low on water.
