    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    Yes, but I have discovered making a bag out of the cheep solar windsheilds from the dollar store makes a big difference. My older Nalgene leaked.

    LOL, my 325lb hike bud has one of these and he filled his and stood on it to test it. NO issues at all.

    Yea they hold up for that. Folks Leaks and faliures are not cause by the bag, they are a result of not getting the cap on tight or the connection gasket.
