    I purchased 10 of these 5 gal. containers because I needed containers that could be stored easily and not take up much room. However, we wound up filling them adding 5 yr water preserver and stacking them on shelving along with the more firm body 5 gal. containers. They are working out great.

    This container will weigh about 40lbs when full, someone like me cannot carry that for long, so I like the 2.5 gallon container, but my guy can handle it just fine, so he has this one in his bag.

    I was debating among the available water storage containers, and one of the perks of this container is the fact that it is collapsible, so they could be carried on the go then filled at a point of destination, if necessary. The plastic is heavy duty and appears to be durable. I was worried at the seams where the jug was folded over that there might be breaks but it doesn't appear so. They aren't ideal for stacking, though it isn't impossible. They also aren't ideal for pouring unless you have good upper body strength, but then again it is doable. I'd probably recommend of this (large and smaller size) and the rigid containers, so you have all your bases covered.

    These are great to have to store water in any emergency. These lay flat for storage also when empty, making it easy to store 10 of these in a small space. Water is the most important resource for survival, if you dont have enough water, you are doomed.

    I got a few of these because I liked that they could be carried full (and yes, when full they're seriously heavy) or folded up and saved for later without taking up an inordinate amount of space. I too am worried about the bendng points/seams in terms of strength and durability but so far there has not been any problems with leaking. So far so good!

    I use these to fill 55 gallon drums from a creek, they are super light weight to take to the water source, and store easily in little space when not needed. Also, my little one can carry one if I fill it only half full.

    We wish we would have gone for a smaller capacity collapsible water container. We filled this one up and even though it gave no indication it was about to break or rip, we were really nervous. It's just so heavy! A 5-gallon plastic container feels too weak / flimsy to carry this much water. I suggest going for a smaller capacity collapsible; like a 2 or 3 gallon. If we ever do use this, we won't fill it up. We do like the BPA free touch of this plastic, on the positive side.

    soft sided containers puncture easily.. mine got a hole in just a few uses. It was nice while it lasted, I mostly used it for storing water in camp. I wouldn't rely on this for long term use.

    I bought two of these last year and kept them packed away. Storm Sandy is on it's way to my neighborhood so I just took them out to fill. They both have a small hole!!! #$@%! These are made out of a tough plastic material but the corners are much thinner than than walls. They are folded up for shipping and storage and it seems like the folds have crimped the weak corners and created small holes in the plastic. What a waste, a disappointment and an inconvenience.

    From The Ready Store:

    Nicholas, there is a first for everything. Hadn't heard this complaint on these containers before. Please contact our customer service team so we can get some new ones sent out your way.
