I bought three of these water carriers to keep at home in case of storms or emergencies, and I take them camping. They are of average quality-not exceptionally good or bad-and they work as intended and advertised. They fold down relatively flat and are easy to store until you need them. No problems thus far.

Purchased a 5 gallon soft plastic water carrier. It works well for this area where you have a need to take clean drinking water with you camping.

I received this item as a gift for my annual desert camping trip. While the carrier itself is strong and works as designed and was able to perform without leaking, the cap leaks terribly. The spout leaked and the cap did not seal properly on 3 out of 5 of the containers. I had to wrap saran wrap around the container lid and then screw the cap in place.
Overall, if the caps worked it would be a great item. However, not worth it due to the leaking caps.

I bought this carrier for a weekend camping and was filling it up literally while the family was waiting for me in the car. Sadly, I just left it in the sink because when I picked it up, it had two small holes along the seam. These weren't just drips; they were two thin streams of water shooting out of the carrier. Very disappointed. Will not buy again.

For 20 years we had a 5 gal. Reliance water container. It worked great and never leaked. Prior to moving onto our sailboat and leaving the USA, we bought 3 more collapsible Reliance containers. They all failed within a year, as they were made of a different material than the original one we had used. This new container we purchased is very similar to the one we bought, being made of a very robust material and having a 5 year guarantee. I believe it will give us many years of service with judicious use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Survivalisintraining I would avoid this product
Probably one of the worst water carriers I have ever seen or owned. I purchased 2 for a trip to the white mountains. The first one had it's handle tear right through the plastic. Both of them had a slight leak at the start of the trip, but it turned into a major leak rendering the container worthless. My suggestion would be to use gallon jugs. Much more durable and less likely to leak.

Started leaking on first use. The plastic is not sturdy enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick Exactly what I was looking for.
I haven't used it yet, but it is the same brand and design as my other water carrier that I have had for 20 years. It is BPA free and NOT made in [*]. I was pleased to purchase a Canadian product...the next best thing if not made here.
