My only issue with the Platypus is the cap. Unfortunately I have lost more caps than I care to admit. If you lose the cap and can't replace it, especially when you are hiking or away from water sources the bottle becomes nearly useless. I always carry spares from older bottles and the cap is a relatively standard size so you can usually find some kind of replacement, so it hasn't been a huge problem yet. If I had any suggestion for improving the design of these bottles it would be to include a cap which can be attached to the bottle like a gas cap is tethered to a car.
Even with this issue, I can't imagine not using Platypus bottles when backpacking or traveling. They are a great value for a great product.
Then there's the glass water bottles with neoprene sleeves, but they still break very easily, and are still too heavy and too small.
I wanted a bottle that's close to 32 oz or 1L, and I'm so glad I stumbled across Platypus products! This review is getting long so I'll just list the pros and cons:
-Most lightweight reusable water bottle EVER! Doesn't make my hand tired from drinking or carrying it.
-BPA free, but still plastic, that's good enough for me because I'm not a paranoid little snowflake about everything (I mean come on people, "lighten up" (ha) a little) It's just the most practical, honestly.
-Anti microbial lining!!!! I didn't eve realize this until later, but had been noticing the water never got that nasty stale water bottle taste, even if forgotten for a few days.
-Perfect for airports. Chug all your water before security, tuck it neatly in your bag, fill it up after security.
-Easy to clean.
-Seems quite durable as long as you don't puncture it with something sharp or something. You can fill it with water and throw it in a backpack and it never leaks.
-Small mouth opening makes it annoying to fill up with a Brita pitcher; you have to be patient.
-I'm scared I'm going to lose the cap and then I'll be screwed as far as portability goes
-Sometimes slightly awkward to drink out of, might look a little funny.
That's it! The pros far outweigh the cons! Get this bottle now!
Tip: It's hard to dry the inside thoroughly after washing. So to prevent mildew, rinse with vodka before long-term storage.
It really lightens your load when you use a bottle like this. I didn't realize how heavy Nalgenes or Klean Kanteens were until I started using the Platypus bottles!
If I had one criticism, I'd say the inside I'd say because the opening is small, the inside is harder to clean and takes longer to dry. Not a dealbreaker.
