Rated 2 out of 5 by from Childproof mechanism is difficult! I just bought the new fuel bottle to replace my old version. My old fuel pump broke and I couldn't buy a replacement lid for the old version, so I had to buy the new one. Oh well, right. Except that I tried to open the child proof lock and couldn't do it. I tried not to over-tightened it, but maybe that's the problem? Regardless, I tried until my hands hurt, then I had my 2 male room mates try to open the bottle and had no luck, just frustration. If I press it down and turn it, as shown in the diagram, it just seems to be locked in place and will not turn. This is just too difficult. If I can't even open it in my backyard how am I going to do it when I go snow camping this weekend?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bottle, like the cap I bought this for additional fuel on an extended kayaking trip. My old 22 oz bottle has the old-style cap. With the old cap, I really have to tightened it, as I once had a leak while backpacking. With the old cap, as the bottle heated heated, the cap was about impossible to get off without a lever through the ring, as pressure builds up, and then it sprays fuel as the pressure is released. With the new bottle cap, it's easy to get off (just a bit of downward pressure, no more difficult than opening an aspirin bottle), no spray of fuel, and I have had no leaks. I think it's a big improvement over the old style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems with CRP cap I use multiple MSR bottles for backpacking. I also have a smaller capacity bottle with a simple screw-top lid. The bottle with the CRP was a pain to unscrew. 10 miles into the back country and 2000 feet of elevation gain, the cap would not unscrew. After 10 minutes and the use of a tool the cap finally came off. What is safe about not being able to eat in the back country? Luckily I had a spare cap from the old design to use on the remainder of the trip. I wish they would go back to the simple screw cap. No need for CRP cap because bottles should be cleaned after trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Some have had complaints about the safety cap, but as long as you can twist off the cap of your favorite pill bottle, you'll do just fine with this cap too. The fuel bottle is rugged yet lightweight. The 30 oz is great because you can fill it with a lot or a little, and leave the pump on for the duration of your trip instead of removing and replacing it for each cook. There are plenty of warnings on the bottle explaining that what is inside is flammable, perfect for those who hang around goobers that will drink out of anything. Great product, perfect for all of your liquid fuel MSR stove needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more crunchy dehydrated food packs!! I do a lot of traveling with camp gear and one of my biggest problems if flying with compressed gasses. You know those little bottles of ISO gas. Ya you cant fly with those!! Many of the locations that I have traveled too ALSO don't sell compressed gas. This has left me numerous times looking down at my stock pile of dehydrated food packs and no means to heat water to eat them...mmmmm crunchy... So recently i converted to the whisper light series using these handy bottles to carry fuel. No need to worry about fly ( just empty the bottles first) and refilling ( as long as theres a gas station somewhere). Happy Adventuring !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific leakproof bottles I bought my first MSR stove (an XGK) and an 11 oz. bottle some 17 years ago, Later, I decided that I wanted the simmering capabilities of the Dragonfly, so I bought a second 11 oz. bottle with it. I carry both stoves and bottles for airplane camping or vehicle camping, but just the Dragonfly and one bottle when backpacking, to reduce weight. Most of my cooking is on the Dragonfly. One bottle is good for about 5 days of solo cooking. Neither bottle has ever leaked. So when I bought a scooter, which has a pretty small gas tank, I decided that I needed a good, reliable reserve gas can--what better than a 30 oz. MSR bottle? Large enough to provide additional range, small enough to stow in the "trunk" of the scooter. I've now had the scooter and that bottle for 8 years, and again, it's never leaked. Periodically I dump the fuel from it into the scooter and refill it with fresh gasoline. I've never needed to use it, but with the normal mpg of my scooter, it would take me another 12 miles pretty easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fuel Bottle I have used my fuel bottle for a number of years. Almost always has zero problems. I have had minor problems with leakage at the "O" ring seal but a temporary fix is easily made using an off the shelf seal from any hardware store kept me hiking until a original equipment seal is delivered from MSR.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CRP cap=crap cap I have an older model (thank God!). My housemates set out to do some backpacking this week, and instead of borrowing my equipment bought their own. Two of us tried opening the cap. It is 20-something proof as well as child-proof! I sure hope our third housemate was able to open it for their trip. My housemate and I are not wimpy gals, and regardless of how much force we used, following the usual CRP directions to push down, then counter-clockwise, we couldn't open the bottle.
