Comments about Platypus Platypus Big Zip SL Reservoir:

I used the product during a recent trek in Indonesia and it served me well. With this product, I was able to access water easily and keep myself hydrated throughout the trek. I love it. I would recommend buyers of this product to purchase a cap as well to keep the mouthpiece clean and hygenic.

Comments about Platypus Platypus Big Zip SL Reservoir:

This is my first reservoir and I am quite happy with my purchase. Taste is clean, pouch is easy to fill and clean, and 100oz lets me fill it up for those hot, dry hikes. Sucking water out of a hose takes some getting used to. I wish there was a way to turn it "on" and have the water flow out without having to "suck". Issue should be easy to fix as next time I will take the reservoir and a small bottle for those really thirsty moments (lunchtime), when I need to rinse something or just pour some water on my head.
