Platypus products include a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
The Platypus sport bottle is from a company named Cascade Designs, started by three friends and former Boeing engineers -- Jim Lea, Neil Anderson, and John Burroughs -- who were laid off from the aeronautics giant in 1971. Outdoor enthusiasts looking for the next great gear idea, they went on to design the world's first self-inflating mattress, the Therm-A-Rest.
Today, Cascade Designs remains a private, family-owned company that has grown into a respected outdoor gear manufacturer, thanks to a combination of the Therm-a-Rest brand’s enduring popularity, the acquisition of companies with superior products and shared visions, and by sticking to the principle of providing relevant, innovative, quality products.

Cascade Designs, the owner of Platypus, will not replace defective product unless consumer returns bottle directly at full cost to the consumer. This means that if your bottle fails within 2 months (as was the case with me), you will spend 1/3 of the purchase price in shipping costs to get the item replaced. At first, I was asked to take photos of the defective product and to destroy the bottle afterward (documented with another photograph), but later they backtracked on this offer.
For the aggravation and inconvenience, you've just lost a high volume customer.
Imagine hiking through the woods of Franconia in southern Germany with a Platypus in your backpack. Suddenly, you notice that your bag is sopping wet. The Platypus has split along its seams in what looks like an obvious manufacturing defect. Disappointed doesn't even cover it. Dutifully, I carry the defective Platypus home with me across the Atlantic, expecting *at* *the* *very* *least* a painless replacement.
My most recent experience with Platypus: Several very recent defective products, customer service offering replacement solutions then backtracking on them under 12 hours later, then implicitly calling into question my integrity, and nickel and diming me to boot. Not the Platypus I once loved and respected.
I also plan to speak with stock management at our local REI next time I'm in the shop.
Yes, everyone knows you need water and that the further you travel from home, the more questionable sources can be. I use the Platypus gravity works hydration system with a Sawyer filter mod and it's performance to capacity to weight ratio is VERY hard to beat.
I carry this on day hikes and to keep in camp. I also carry it with my when I fly because it's light, durable and small when needed.
Traditional water battles can be heavyish, but even those that aren't have a personality trait that I tend to find annoying - size retention. They are the same size and shape when full or empty. This usually isn't a big deal, but if space is a priority, this is a handy bottle.
When it's full, the bottom fills out and the rim of the bag forms a cone for the bag to stand upright. When it's empty, it lies flat and can be folded/rolled up to about 1/6th the size for easy storage. It gets out of the way when it's not needed. I usually do this right before I go through TSA security, etc. Very handy. In addition, because it's shape is moldable because it's a bag, this bottle fits better in different places than, say, a traditional Nalgene bottle. I have a sling bag that I carry a small camera and a few lenses in when I travel and a traditional bottle doesn't fit well in the front exterior pocket without putting a lot of pressure on my internal gear. Not a problem with this bottle as the sizes aren't rigid. Think of it like a waterbed, if it's not filled to the brim, the water can be displaced where needed. Super cool.
The holder/carry ring is reinforced and is smooth and laceration-free. Some cheaper rings can have rough mold points that can cause irritations. Not here. You can carabiner it to your pack if you wish, but the sloshing and jostling from your movement will likely drive you nuts, so it's best to think of it as a single-finger carry loop or a place to hang it while in camp, etc.
They offer these in a screw lid and a sports top style lid. I prefer the former. The later is like a dishwashing liquid lid - you pull it up and it squirts, clamp it down and it stops. That version also has a snap on cap that keeps crud from getting of the valve which you'll likely put your mouth on. That cap is too easy to lose and for me, the valve doesn't give you a high volume of output. The simple screw-on cap works best. The cap SCREWS on and the wider mouth allows for more water faster. It's also one less finicky part to clean.
Bonus: fill it with hot water in camp and toss it into your sleeping bag as a hot water bottle bag warming option, or stick it in your clothes to do the same.
If you are on the go and you're looking for something that's light, moldable, durable, and gets out of the way when needed, this is the best bottle I've used. The only cons I've encountered are:
1. As you get really low on water/liquid, the bag can have a hard time standing on it's own
2. The clear plastic has a tendency to turn yellowish over time - esp. in dusty environments like the western US and Africa. It never really washes out.
3. Not as easy to clean out as Nalgene due to the small opening
4. Can be punctured easier than a hard plastic bottle - keep it away from open flames and knives and you're fine.
That's about it. It's a solid product and they make smaller volumes that are in colored plastic which might hold up to discoloration better. However, they are sharper on the welded seams and not as easy to hold in my view.
For the money, this is a great investment and it's at the top of my list for recommended bottles to travel with internationally.
Platypus is aces in my book. I go through about one a year, but that's with lots of heavy use. They've never failed me once. I just get a new one after a while because I want to.
