    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Platypus PlatyPreserve Wine Preservation System - 27 fl. oz. is rated 2.8333 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from always use the same beverage Lightweight, did not add plastic taste, and did not leak, but once used (only one time) I could never get rid of the smell from the previous vintage. I tried dish soap, lemon juice, liquor-rinse, leaving it set full of water for weeks -- finally gave up and returned it to the store, where they also verified it smelled of old wine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for travel I've used this on backcountry trips many times. I can carry 2L of H20 plus a bottle of wine and stay under 24 lbs. I've also found it useful for concerts and river trips.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from indispensable piece of gear This was recommended to me by a fellow backpacker. I've gotten accustomed to carrying several bottles of wine on my hikes (usually between two to four bottles over four to six days). This product works great. I stow it in a plastic bag to catch any leaks (only leaked once) and am careful how I pack it in my backpack so the lid doesn't unscrew itself. I always rinse and dry it when I get home, and I've never had a problem with residual wine smell.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A cup of red around the fire This would be 5 stars except for the fact that it does retain some residual wine smell. This item paid for itself after the first Giants game I brought wine to. Brought it on a backpacking trip and it worked perfectly, nothing like sharing a cup of red wine with friends around a campfire in the Sierra Nevada as the stars come out after a long day of hiking.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks Not sure about these other reviews that say their's didn't leak. Mine leaked. Luckily, I'd been worried about that, and, fearful of getting red wine all over my gear, put this wine pouch inside a Ziploc Freezer bag. Thank god I did! Although I double checked the lid, I decided to try it again at home, and see if it would leak again. Sure enough, it did. If you know that it's going to sit perfectly straight up, like on a shelf in your house, then you're good. Would not take this item backpacking.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Retains Wine Flavor - Gross After the first bottle of wine I have not been able to remove the residual wine flavor from this (yes, I did follow the instructions for "cleaning"). It was so bad that I tried to just use it as a light weight water bladder but after a day of hiking the water smelled and tasted just like the bladder smelled. Yuck!! IT GETS WORSE!!!!! I contacted Cascade Design asking for help and got NO RESPONSE!!!! I would NOT recommend this product.
