Today i was at the dollar tree getting a few little things for my first aid kit when i ran across something pretty durn cool.... I have a a 500ml platy that i use for camp water, cooking and for an extra push of water on the long stretches i love it its handy lightweight and works great..... WELL to the point! Today while at the dollar tree i found that they carry collapsable soft 520ml bottles very similar to what platypus makes but they have several colors and a pull top ( like sport drink bottles ). Its a buck so i went what the hell and bought a few got home tested them out no bad taste they have a bit of an odd shape but still fit comfortably. It also comes with a little hook to attach to your pack belt or anything to that fashion. It weighs in at .8 oz with the latch and .6 without. It feel its a killer deal and plan on brining one with a cool color to put my fuel in. Thought i would share this with you as it save you about 13 bucks if you were looking to get one from platy.

Also they have dollar (obviously) plastic drawstring bags, super lightweight (l.2 oz) laundry bags that work perfect as bag liners i have one for my OHM 2.0 and it fits great! I may move to a Compost liner later but for now its great!
