Great for a recovering patient We used this for my husband when he was moved from ICU and too weak to lift a cup. We simply hung it from his IV pole and laid the mouthpiece by his head. He was able to take a sip in the middle of the night without having to call for help. It was a huge relief to him.

Light and Battle Worthy I like these “minimalist” bladders the best… very light, pretty much indestructible. The clip is junk and I just throw them away…all the bags have loops anyway.Some people complain about the “low” water flow on these but I disagree. I don’t need to feel like I am sipping from a straw, I get plenty of water per draw and I think too much flow allows me to waste water by drinking too much.Some people complain about the ease of cleaning these bags… but…

If you have nighttime dry mouth due to Sjogrins/Chemo etc.. get the Platypus! I use the Platypus differently than most people probably. I have Sjogrins syndrome and do not produce saliva ( some people who have had chemo also have this problem ). For years I have had a glass of water at my bedside for frequent sips throughout the night. Waking up every 30 minutes or so to take a sip from a cup of water is difficult. When I came across the hands free Platypus hoser I decided to give it a try. I hung the bag from my bed post leaving the tube within reach during the night…
