        Comments about Platypus SoftBottle:

        I have another model Platypus which has a screw top which screws a few times, so no chance of the top coming off in my purse and water going all over. Not so with this model, which only screws one turn - an accident waiting to happen. But the distributor, SunnySports, is one of the best and most professional companies I've ever dealt with, so, yes, I would use them any time!

          Comments about Platypus SoftBottle:

          I had purchased a pair of these locally to use in my dog's backpack. The soft-sided container option is better for this as they don't jab her in the ribs. I liked the first two so much that I ordered another pair of 1 liters and a pair of 2 liters from SunnySports. They are light and take up practically no space in my pack when empty. Because they are so compact, I'm carrying one of these in my pack specifically for mixing drink mixes in as I do not like my plain water to have a residual taste. All in all, a great product.

            Comments about Platypus SoftBottle:

            This is a fun way to hydrate yourself, and it is nice to have a collapsible container, especially when traveling. The only changes I would desire would be a loophole on the smaller versions for hanging it from a belt loop, etc., and possibly a larger opening to be able to add small ice cubes. Overall it's a great product!
