About Platypus

Platypus is a part of the Cascade Designs group that has developed a reputation for innovative outdoor solutions. Founded by a few mountaineering enthusiasts in the 1970s, Cascade Designs originally set out to build a better camping mattress. Over the years, they grew the company into several specific brands that all zeroed in on enhancing a specific aspect of outdoor gear. Now, Platypus is at the forefront of the industry as they continue to introduce new hydration products to a dedicated customer base.

There are a plethora of Platypus backpacks that are all designed to make your life easier and to vanquish thirst as well. The Platypus 3L Hoser has made the brand famous and is known around the headquarters as the workhorse of reservoirs. This versatile classic has the capability to transform any pack into a hydration pack, or you can throw the cap on it and just drink straight out of it around camp while you are cooking or relaxing by the fire. Many people love this little gem, because not only does it constantly ward off thirst, but it also highly compatible with loads of other Platypus accessories so that you can customize it to accommodate all of your adventures.

A commitment to remaining super innovative has led to advanced creations like the Platypus Insulator 3L. A hunk of ice does you no good when you’re plagued by thirst while skiing in the backcountry, so that is why the Insulator was crafted. It is a big reservoir sleeve that keeps your precious fluids from freezing with a durable Cordura exterior.

Platypus camping gear like the Platypus Water Tank aim to make camping a little easier so that you can maximize your enjoyment of the whole experience. Load the tank up with a few bonus gallons and forget your worries as you take off on your trek. The Big Zip opening makes it incredibly easy to fill and clean. When you are all done sipping the liquids from it, all you have to do is collapse the tank for easy and lightweight transportation. Platypus certainly thought of everything on this one as they do with all their products.

Nobody needs to tell you how crucial it is to stay hydrated, but Platypus is here to claim that there is certainly a better way stave off thirst. Choose Platypus hydration solutions for all your excursions and get the most out of every adventure
