Collapsible Water options
I'm looking over the options for a (RELIABLE) collapsible water storage system . This will be used for 10 days as base camp water storage. I currently have used a Reliance collapsible 5 gal jug, but they always leak and need replaced. I'm considering a 4 gal camp shower, or a dry bag of some sort. We will have to syphon water from small seeps and carry it 1/2 to 3/4 mile to camp , then store as needed. Any recommended options or ideas would be much appreciated.
I think Platypus makes collapsible jugs
I think they all make good collapsible ones. Some are better but even the cheap Wall Mart ones would worl for one trip.
Why not just several platypus type containers? If water is at camp I like the big, thicker plastic 4-5 gallon collapsible jugs from walmart or similar... if I had to pack it I'd prefer multiple 3-4 L bladders that weigh nothing and can be loaded into packs easier.
I was about to post when I saw TEmbry did.
What he said.
I prefer several smaller Platypus containers. They are easy to pack and take up very little room when empty.
I've been using the Walmart jugs in elk camp the last few years. I find them better than the reliance brand. The spigot is better and they seem to have heavier plastic than the other. They are cheap enough I just replace them every year.
Yeah, i've used those Reliance jugs and they are good for about a year- nothing worse than hauling on in a backwoods camp and it leaks- beenthere.
i have a couple of the Nalgene 96 oz ones on Wild1's link to REI. I would like that platypus version but for $40 they are pretty proud of that.
Has anyone used those Seattle Sports aqua sto that are on that page on sale?
