Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfect! We took this bucket into Utah's Escalante River canyon for five days of backcountry. We were camped on a hill above the river and this bucket made our lives much easier. I mainly used it so the dogs wouldn't run back into the river to get a drink after they were already dried off, but I would have no problem filtering water out of it. I found that as long as I could fill it in deep water I was able to get a full 10 L. The handles held just fine and I propped it up against a rock where it stayed all night as the dogs were drinking out of it. With its lightweight, compact size I'll never be in the backcountry without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, not truly "Self Standing" This was a definite upgrade from my yellow, old school collapsible bucket. This is much less bulky and it performs its job just as well. However, I would take the claims that this bucket is "self standing" with a HUGE grain of salt. I took this on a four day backpacking trip and unless it's on completely level ground with only a small amount of water in it, it will likely tip over. It happened several times while getting water. If you want it to stand up on its own with a decent amount of water in it, you're going to have to tie it to something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Served its purpose well! We purchased this folding bucket for our first section hike on the AT (8 days) and it performed exactly as we expected it to. We never filled it completely to the top, so we had no problems with it staying upright. Typically we filled it about 3/4 full. The bucket is extremely lightweight and compact, yet very durable. It was perfect for toting sufficient water back to camp for filtering drinking water and enough left over for clean up and washing utensils/cookware. We liked it and are happy we bought it. We'll be using it again on the next section.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's light and works OK I use it in the backcountry to collect water from a creek (or lake) and then it's my reservoir of water to pump through my filter for drinking, etc. Best things about it: capacity, light weight, reliably self standing (on a level suface),takes little pack volume. Not so great: It's hard to fill because the openning tends to collaspse as you drag it through the water. I may try to make a light weight circular spring-type wire frame to keep it open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Useful I love this bucket. I can go down to the water source and bring back 8 liters or so (10 liters is unrealistic since it isn't rigid). This allows me to purify water by my warm fire, cook with more of it, wash up with some more, and have some for the morning. I also use it to make sure that my fire is out. This is a safety item if you do any backpacking or primitive camping in swamp areas where gators reside. You do not want to remember that you need water at dusk or after, and head down to the water to get a pan full. At 4.4 oz, you just cannot go wrong with having this bucket along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "Must Have" for any backpacker! I purchased this bomb-proof bucket just this last backpacking season. Took it on several two day and multi-day backpacking trips (including the Glacier National Park section of the CDT) and it worked great; easy to fill out of a lake or stream, holds large volumes of water, and best of all, not only are the handles long enough to hang the bucket from a tree branch but because of the wide base design, it can also stand on its own when filled! This last feature is a real plus when using a water filtration pump. Finally, because of its size, it also functions well as a container to do your laundry while out in the bc. No backpacker should be without this handy little piece of soft equipment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life 10x easier We just spent 8 days in the backcountry and our most talked about and appreciated piece of gear was this bucket. We were able to camp on one beautiful ridge because with the bucket it was so simple to transport ~9 liters of water from a creak that was ~500ft lower in elevation and 1.5 miles away. It gave us flexibility and just simplified dealing with water in the backcountry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bucket needs improvement I bought this bucket recently based on other users' reviews, and used it to hold water for pump filtering on a 10-day Wyoming wilderness trip. Pros: It's good for carrying water from stream- or lake-side to another site for more comfortable filtering, so definitely improves the process. Cons: The bucket rarely holds its claimed 10L capacity because the rim collapses when dipped underwater and, too often, while balanced (shakily) on the ground after filling. I usually got 3-4L, 6L at best. Suggestion: The bucket should be redesigned with a rim stiffener like its sibling Sea to Summit washbasin. I don't understand why it doesn't already have one. The improved functioning would be worth the slight added weight.
