The good thing about these bags is that they can be froze without fear of being broken. Just fill it 1/2 to 3/4 full and put in the freezer without the cap.
Pro-Tip : Be careful not to lose the cap! You can buy replacements but since they aren’t attached, it’s possible lose it. I’ve read that a soda bottle cap is a good replacement but I can’t confirm that.
The bottle is great-- compact, sturdy, and reliable
Perfect for easy carry in a chest rig such as the Hill People Gear Kit Bag or the Ribz pack.
It’s a nice way to carry hydration with you without becoming bulky or weighing you down.
No issues with leaking around the cap or leaking from the bag either.
