Platypus SoftBottle 0.5L - Review

Today we are reviewing the Platypus SoftBottle 0.5L.

16oz or half a liter.

$7.95 on amazon.

Multiple Colors; Blue, Grape, Gray, Red, Mountain, Tree,

Capacity 17 fl. oz / 0.5 liters

Weight 0.8 oz / 22 g

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.

  1. I bought something very similar to that from Dollar Tree....for $1. I've had it for two years, works real well.
