Co-workers have noted it looks like I'm drinking out of a shampoo bottle and I get playfully teased about it, but everyone who sees it is intrigued by it and inquires where they can get one. A great gift for that hard to buy for outdoors lover or camping enthusiast - I plan on getting a few more for the upcoming camping season. Most importantly, it is environmentally friendly and BPA free. I don't think it's the kind of product that a regular user will have for years and years, but if used with care I imagine this product will last quite some time and will have easily been worth the purchase price. It may not necessarily be the right product for everyone, but it certainly meets my needs very nicely.
The second one from my initial order worked out just fine (as did the replacement from Amazon). I would have to echo some other reviewers' comments, however. I haven't had a problem with the cap, but it IS certainly flimsy and I am concerned about longevity of use. Additionally, the bottle itself is difficult to use with one hand, as it's a little less structured than I would have thought.
All in all, there's a reason why they don't make a 1 liter Capri Sun pouch. That much liquid weight is unwieldy in a near-structure-less container and I wouldn't expect this to go anywhere or do anything a Capri Sun couldn't. In fact, the added weight from higher capacity seems to add to its fragility.
I was hoping to lighten up my hiking/backpacking load as much as possible with a couple of these, but the risk of water leaking over all my gear isn't worth it. With some of the nice, lightweight Nalgene (and other) bottles out there, these Platypus bottles save you bulk when empty, but otherwise very little weight when comparing the perceived benefits/risks.
