Review by: sweetchuck, 2006-11-14


I had one of these years ago. I loved it for backpacking and would heat up water to put in it and use it as a pillow. Everyone complained about the bad taste and not being able to see the murk within. I told them to STFU and that I had just cleaned it. Well years later some friends saw it and said it had been recalled. They had used an Arsenic based antibacterial something inside to keep it fresh. Sure enough I sent it in and got a new one. I guess the new ones are fine, the old ones had brass grommets, so if you have one of those, send it back. Now I prefer Plattys, you can see through them at the murk, they are cheap, although they do wear out quickly.
