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.
I ended up buying a 7 gallon hard plastic jug
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 container quickly imparts a vinyl taste and odor to the water. I treat it as "non-potable" water - that is, for washing hands, dishes, and the like. Read morePublished 2 days ago by C. A. Rummel
3 of these containers were taken by a boy scout crew to Philmont. All 3 ended up with cracks in them at the spots where they collapsed/folded down. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Patty G
Not good. No vent so the water just trickled out. By the 3rd day the cheap plastic valve didn't even work. We had to completely unscrew the valve every time we wanted to use this.Published 16 days ago by Renee D.
