i picked up a couple for earthquake supplies to test. filled it and left it upside down at an angle for a day - no leaks. handle is decent. weight is reasonable. getting the water out is a pita w/ all the corners, but otherwise they work as advertised.

I have been looking at these for a while.( well since this thread was started) . I wonder how it would stand up to the Arizona heat? Am I going to taste plastic during the summer months, or will it be ok to cook with? I sleep in the back of my truck a lot, and I don't want to move them back and forth. Do you think these will work? Is there another option?

Those waterbricks look pretty cool and for under $20 you can't go wrong.

I used a rotopax water container for a couple years as I got it with my gas containers.

They sit about flush to the top of my Dephep when layed sideways and easy to lash to the roof with the various handles.

I've got 3, one for each of my vehicles, supplements my bug out/ get home system. They are very nice, I got the 1.6 gallon container.

If that question was for me... nope, no funky taste.

When I first bought it, I filled it with tap water and let it sit for about a week, emptied it then refilled with drinking water and no "plasticy" taste at all.

Took it on a 3 day camping trip and it sat on the picnic table exposed to sun for the most part and everything tasted fine to me.. no complaints from others as well.

I did see someone on Amazon said the water can taste plasticy if left in the sun for quite some time. Mine was only for 3 days and it wasn't super hot so who knows.
