      Comments about Platypus Water Tank:

      I've used the 4L bladder on about 3 trips now including 2 kayak trips & hiking trip (each trip averaging 5 days). The first 2 trips, it has been a great asset. The bladder served as our main source of water at base camp for cooking, cleaning, etc. I would give it a 5, but on the last trip at some point the zip where it seals tore off kinda like zip-lock closures on food bags where the zipped part is actually zipped but tears at its seam so that even though it's zipped, the seal has failed.

            great product however the zippered top gets difficult to use after a while. Difficult to close after multiple uses.
