Gear of the Day: Platy SoftBottle

Filed under:

From tents and backpacks, to headlamps, knives, footwear, jackets, and apparel, our “Treasure Hunt: Roanoke” event on July 11th in Roanoke, Va., promises to be one of the biggest gear extravaganzas ever envisioned! From the prize pool, here’s today’s gear pick of the day. . .

Gear of the Day: Platy SoftBottle

Why you want to win this gear! Platypus is sending 20 of its 1-liter Platy SoftBottles to the treasure hunt. These flexible water bottles serve as solid reservoirs for outdoor activities. When the water inside is gone, simply fold them up and stow away. They weigh almost nothing and are perfect for backpacking, climbing, and adventure racing. One of Gear Junkie’s favorite new products this year!
