I'm pleased to report that this was an excellent purchase. Not only does water taste as it does out of the tap without the traditional plastic taste one sometimes gets with disposable plastic bottles; the cap is secure, and when full the bottle stands upright without any difficulty.When empty, they compact to a fraction of their size, making them easy to store in a seat back pocket.
One of the biggest advantages - especially when using these in the car on rough roads - is that they're silent. Disposable plastic bottles creak and groan when placed in cup holders in the vehicle, or fall over when placed in the door pockets. These flex sufficiently to slot properly into door pockets.
My new bottle is just as great and reliable as my old one, and above all ensures that I stay hydrated throughout the day. Being a litre in capacity, it makes it very easy to remember how much water you’ve had and how much more you may need. E.g. I know that if I get through 2-3 bottles a day then I’m on the right track.
Highly recommend this product, especially for those who spend a lot of time out and about, and who don’t want to get stuck carrying a heavy, bulky water bottle around once it’s empty. I honestly don’t know why more people don’t have a platypus.
The only negative is that the stopper tends to cling onto some of the fluid i.e, you can sense a mild taste of orange squash even after washing. This is VERY minimal in practice.
I bought this product for my workbag where I use the bottle on my commute and I can highly recommend it.
I can now squeeze water in around my kit, and distribute the weight much more easily. My kit was used as a seat, thrown over walls, and I even landed on it as I lost my balance. These bottles survived the lot. One of my best kit upgrades this year.
The 1-Litre Platypus Soft Bottle stands up well when full and doesn't leave its contents with a plastic or chemical-like taste, with a Push-Pull cap which operates smoothly at all times.
However, taste residue may remain if the 1-Litre Platypus Soft Bottle is filled with a flavoured liquid (e.g. juice or sports drinks). For this reason, I'd stick to the recommendation of only filling the bottle with water for ease of cleaning over time.
The bottle has been produced to a high standard overall. In addition to a range of bright colours, Platypus offer a bespoke "Cleaning Kit" for their entire Soft Bottle range and a "Hydration Drink Tube Kit" which can be set up in seconds to convert the bottle into a portable hydration reservoir.
Great for airport travel, after security control I fill it up/get someone at the bar to fill it up so I have plenty of water for the flight.
1) One bottle can carry an entire litre of water! Impressive! Most bottled carry 500ml. So 1 litre is great!
2) When the bottles are empty they weigh practically nothing and don't take up a large amount of space in your bag so you can take them on long trekking/hiking trips.
So on our 7 hour trekking trip we had no problems with not having enough water to hydrate and were not weighed down by unnecessary extra bulky weight. Perfect!!!!
