Platypus PlusBottle

Platypus PlusBottle

The Platypus PlusBottle is a water bottle that takes up almost no space and can be rolled and tucked in to a corner of your backpack.

Backpacking means little space and comparatively lots to carry. If you’re one of those people who like to drink water more frequently, then you traditional water bottles can be to difficult to carry around and can be really annoying.

The Platypus PlusBottle collapses to almost nothing when it’s empty. Just flatten it out and roll it up. It’s also lighter than your average bottle, and is quite inexpensive, starting at $13 (on Amazon). With a small loop on the end, you can use as a carabiner clip for the hikers.

The downside? It’s difficult to drink from them with one hand. Yet we think this is a cool product and easy to carry around.
