I have found it a very useful piece of kit. That’s down to the fact that for an overnight camp i only have to fill it the once. A bonus once your settled in the tent.
The 3L has for some reason been deleted from the Platypus range which now only comprises the 2L and 4L in the tank models. Why Platypus have decided to ditch the 3L is beyond me as i have found it perfect.
- The 2L weighs 66 grams and costs around £21
- The 4L weighs 103 grams and costs around £26
Boli 5 Litre water tank.
- Boli 5L water tank weighs just 69 grams and costs £6.99.
You may think that 5 Litres is too big, but in reality you only have to fill it with enough for your requirements and the tank rolls away and weighs so little when stored in the rucksack.
In comparison it weighs the same as the Platypus 2 Litre.
I think its great value for money and a viable alternative to the more expensive offerings. Ideal too for D of E groups.
