    Platypus plusBottle 1-Liter Water Bottle with Push/Pull Capis rated2.0out of5by3.
    Rated1out of5byfromWeights much MORE than SpecificationPurchased this through another retailer. REI has to correct specifications per the package label (0.8oz or 23g). I pulled the bottle out of the package and placed it on my digital kitchen scale. My measurement was 1.4oz (40g) (75% greater than the claimed weight). As a cross check, I tested a new stuff sack with a claimed weight of 3.0oz. It came out to 3.2oz (6% greater than the claimed weight).

    Rated3out of5byfromCap threads weak point in good designI bought a pair of these (with black nylon holsters included) to save space and weight on backpacking and strenuous day hikes in the mountains. I already used the Big Sip for backpacking and a half-liter handheld Platypus bottle running for years, so I'm definitely pro-Platypus in general. The bottle itself seems quite durable, has a slim profile, weighs hardly anything empty, and like my other Platypus bladders have no plastic aftertaste. The PlusBottle is great except for one major weakness, and that's the opening at the top. Unfortunately, there just aren't enough rows of cap threads for either the included push-pull cap or a FirstNeed filter adapter to stay on securely. I took the PlusBottles on a couple extended backpacking trips in the wilderness so far. I used a FirstNeed adapter (Nalgene thread to Platypus thread) to attach them to my Katadyn filter. I can't filter water into either PlusBottle without the threads coming loose and detaching the bottle from the filter at least once in the process of filling it. I might blame that on an incompatible third-party product (FirstNeed adapter) instead of the PlusBottle, if not for the fact I have the exact same problem with the included push-pull caps from Platypus. If I just bump the cap the wrong way, they unscrew just loose enough that each of my two bottles leaked water onto the floor of my tent on different nights. I don't think I got a lemon since both bottles have this problem. A couple days ago I also leaned against a rock in the wilderness to take a picture and was surprised and amused that the pressure popped open the push-pill lid and shot a geyser of water clear up on my glasses. However I can imagine situations when I wouldn't be nearly so amused to have the top pop open, like accidentally leaning on it or rolling over it in my tent at night. My CamelBak bottles with CapCap tops weigh more and take up space even when empty, but they're also more dependable. The CamelBaks aren't going to pop open in my tent if I accidentally lean against them, and aren't likely to leak all over my tent if something bumps against the cap and it comes even a little unscrewed. Because of the tradeoffs between weight and dependability, each time I go on an extended trip I still debate back and forth between CamelBaks and PlusBottles based on the circumstances. I also wish the opening was larger like the Cantene. But I wouldn't even consider a Cantene after all the user reports that it isn't durable, so I went with the PlusBottle in spite of the small opening. However consider: #1: there's no easy way to clean it out with such a small hole. #2: Oftentimes it takes almost a week to completely dry out again (both the PlusBottle and the half-liter bottle I take running), even when I blow the bladder up as big as possible and position it in a sunny window. Got to make doubly sure nothing will grow in there - since I can't clean it out. #3 - if you're in the backcountry without a faucet, how do you get stream water in the tiny hole? I had to go with a third-party adapter to attach my filter. What if I want to use purification tables instead? I considered packing a small funnel next time I'm in the backcountry, but then won't I also need to pack some kind of water container in addition to a PlusBottle so I can pour water from the stream into the funnel? And by the time you solve that problem you've just defeated the original purpose of taking up little space in your pack. Bottom line, is if Platypus could add more secure threads to the screw top I'd be really happy with it. And if Platypus could design a bottle with a larger opening like the Cantene and still make it durable and reliable, I'd have my ideal water bottle. But for now I don't think it exists yet. I can only recommend this if saving space and weight is your absolute top priority.

    Rated2out of5byfromNice design but got a lemonI really like the idea of this bottle for travel, and the material seems pretty heavy duty compared to similar items. However, mine failed in a major way the first time I used it - the bottom some how came unsealed. I filled it up at home and didn't notice any leaks, took it out of my bag a couple of hours later, and water started squirting everywhere. Luckily I was just going to a music festival that didn't allow glass (my bottle material of choice), so it was no big deal, but if I'd been depending on this for water in the back country I would have been in big trouble. I'm going to order another with the hopes that this was an unusual defect, but I'll definitely be trying it out around home before taking it anywhere else.
