Fold-A-Carrier Water Container
The fact that it compact is nice, but once it is full it is hard to carry. Also, I had to fix one of the hadles because it broke.

Very rugged and useful
I have had a couple of these in five gallon and also a couple 2 1/2 gallon versions over the years. In all that time, only one sprung a leak. They are very rugged and I put them to just about the roughest use one could imagine up in shield rock country in Canada. In fact, I think the leak was not caused due to physical damage at all. I think it was simply that the container was so old that it finally wore through a corner where it folds. These things are almost indestructible and the spigot works perfectly.

It's ok for storing water
We use this container at camp for storing water for cooking or cleaning only.
My main problem with this container, is that it is very flimsy when it's full of water. If you set it with the spigot down, on the end of a picnic table for filling cups or water bottles, it can and will roll and fall off the table if someone isn't holding it. This container would be much better if it had a firm bottom with a collapsable top.
This container is only ok for me.

Serves their purpose
The container does a nice job as an inexpensive way to carry extra water for a short trip. I used mine to carry water for my dogs for a four day trip to South Dakota. Being soft sided, it is difficult to use them like a hard plastic water container. You also have to be very careful to tighten the cap and make certain the spigot is in the closed position. The spigot got twisted when one of my hunting partners moved the containers and we lost half the water in two of the containers before he realized that he had accidently opened them. That said, for the occasional trip, they are well worth the price.
