    Dear All,

    My first go at a poll. I am interested in furthering the discussion.

    For what it's worth I use a Platypus.

  2. Platypus every time, the 1.8ltr bag fits into a utility pouch or daysack...  A bit tricky to refill in the field though. ::)
  3. A GS waterbottle everytime.

    Simple, cheap and really quenches your thirst.  :)
  4. Plat for me. I carry bottles for admin tasks aswell tho.
  5. 4 x GS waterbottles - 2 in my webbing, 1 in the daysack and 1 in the Bergin.
  6. I keep a plat in my bergan, and 2 GS water bottles in my webbing.
  7. its even stevens at the mo!
  8. A regular GS water bottle.  It ensures that you call proper water stops and thereby are sure that your blokes are taking on water, something you could forget to do with some tube poking out of your jacket.

    Old fashioned - I know!
  9. I use a Hump from Arktis, it fits into their Jungle battle vest. With regards to the above, trained soldiers should be trusted to take water, as often as they need it! but then again.........
