Flexible water bottle with dual-locking cap. The DuoLock SoftBottle flexible water bottle takes our popular SoftBottle design and adds a dual-locking cap for double the leak protection, plus a convenient clip handle. This flexible bottle is easy to fill, carry, and stow, making it great for day hikes, backpacking trips, camping, or traveling. Flattens or rolls up when not in use, Duolock cap will not flip or twist open. BPA-free. Dishwasher safe. Made in the USA.
I purchased these bottle to give away as party gifts at my kids birthday parties instead of bags of cheap plastic garbage that we often get at kids birthday parties. All the kids love them - they are easy to use and they like the clip so they can clip it to their backpacks!
I use this bottle for... everything. Thanks for the non-obnoxious placement of cap and clip. It's easy to clip this to my pack to ensure it doesn't fall out of an outside pocket. The cap and safety device work great. I like this flexible bottle.
I have been a fan of Platypus bottles for over 20 years, and still love them, except for the Duralock design. At first, I loved the clip that attached to my belt loop. I loved the mouthpiece and the closing locks. However, just yesterday after a year of owning it, it sprung a sizable leak where the rigid neck attaches to the soft bottle. I gave this 2 stars because it gave me a year of light use. No hard feelings-I wouldn't give up my other Platypus for the world. I own 6 others. Unless Platypus can redesign this version, I wouldn't get it.
With the new duo lock design there is leakage Before that they were great I heard they redesigned them but I have bought 3 from different states and all leaked within months I called to let them know but rep insisted that it's an isolated incident Clearly if you look online you see that it isn't Please fix this so I can buy them again
I initially really liked the bottle for how light it was and easy to pack when hiking and travelling. The bottle seemed very durable. However after only a couple months the bottle developed a little crack near the mouthpiece and now it leaks.
I travel by plane a lot so this is helpful to pack away until through security so doesn't add bulk or weight to carry-on luggage. I like how sturdy it is. Only drawback is that it is difficult to use one-handed but I work around that easily.
The DuoLock SoftBottle fell from a height of 25 feet to the forest floor. It made a "bang" loud enough to startle any animals for several hundred yards. It was much louder than the "crinkle" sound that the bottle makes in cold temps. The bottle was fully intact, without leaks after this event. I have not comparison-tested competing products. My wish list now includes a wide-mouth version that would fit water filtration systems.
