We love the handles which make them easy to carry, and the 3.5 gallon size make them lighter and easier to carry than 5 gallon containers. The stackable design makes them awesome for storing in tight spaces, and the rectangular design makes them ideal for storing in the bottom of our canoes, where they also act as excellent ballast weights to adjust our boats trim.

We live in Portland Oregon which is predicted to be at high earthquake risk, so we keep 40 filled WaterBricks in our basement for emergency water.
I threaded a strap through the center holes and around either end, for easier carry (see customer-submitted pic). We found it was a pain to switch the cap for the tap, otherwise. Also, it offers a range of carry options, including one person on either end. We also found that keeping the tap in a sealed camp mug/bowl kept it clean and uncrushed. Good place to keep the cap when the tap's on, too.
Overall, very well-designed and solidly made. As our emergency kit water containers need replaced, we'll likely swap them for waterbricks.
This time I took the handle off before putting the cap on and it sealed just fine. I think that for me (I have large hands) the handle gets in the way of tightening the lid properly but if you take it off before sealing it you should be just fine.
I'm extremely happy with the customer service from WaterBrick and I really like the product (now that I know it works). It's a very heavy duty plastic of good quality that satisfies my needs very well.
I will be buying more.
But like others have mentioned, it leaked really badly! I was really disappointed. I went to the manufacturer's website to look for troubleshooting tips as well as warranty information. They provided tips to mitigate leaking, such as ensuring the gasket was in the proper position (which mine was not). I repositioned properly, and the leaking was significantly reduced, but not eliminated. They said that if that happens, to try applying a teeny bit of cooking oil on the rim and threads (if I recall correctly). So I did that, and no more leaking at all. It is absolutely water tight. Yay! Waterbrick International states that if none of those solutions work, to give them a jingle for further assistance. They stand behind their products, and I don't doubt that they will help you and make sure you are satisfied if you happen to get a unit that won't stop leaking.
I ordered another one immediately (don't buy it for more than $19.99---Amazon is way overcharging) off a different website that was offering a free shipping code as well. Win. Do some googling and you'll find it...the website I used was Sp*rtsman's G**** ;)
I agree with other reviewers that the handle is a bit flimsy. But I can deal. It is otherwise extremely sturdy and is a great option if you are trying to maximize space like I am. I have no doubt that it will perform well for years to come.
Leak details: The water comes out between the cap-gasket and the large opening that the cap fits onto. The core issue seems to be that the gasket doesn't properly cope with the flashing and other inconsistencies in the plastic. A little cleanup of that plastic and a softer and thicker gasket may have resolved this. I still plan to try and find one -- but at this cost per unit, it should simply work. .
* Good moderate size
* The units may be stacked with some added stability due to the molded features
* You can put dowels or pipes between to help keep things upright
* High cost per unit / gallon
* I'm not thrilled with how difficult it is to reach inside for cleaning due to those same pipe holes. (I knew about this limitation before purchase)
* It is difficult to completely pour out to empty. (I knew about this limitation before purchase)
Final verdict: If I can find a gasket that I can insert between the cap and the opening that adequately resolves the leaking issue, I may get more -- price dependent. Otherwise, no -- I'll have to keep looking for a suitable solution.
