The collapsible carrier should last you a few years if lightly used, mine lasted 10 years.
If you get a Fold-A-Carrier get the II with the integrated handle, the red handled model is very hard on the hands.

If you are talking about the collapsable clear plastic jugs don't waste your money. After they have been folded/collapsed a few of times they develop small holes where the plastic is repeatedly bent and leakers are useless. The 7 gallon blue plastic jugs from Wally World seem to hold up pretty well, ours are several years old and holding up nicely.


Ditto! MY blue 5 gallon jug has worked perfect for me the last 15 years. Nice and solid for laying on a picnic table with its own spigot.


This for me, too. I keep a bucket under the spigot to catch the water so the ground doesn't get muddy and use the water to put out the fire when we leave. Nice to be able to wash outside and not have to run inside all the time.

We have 3 collapsible 5gal jugs purchased at a local outdoor sporting goods store (Academy Sports, I think)... I think they were about $5 each.

We've not used them a lot in the 6 months or so we've had them. The first trip out I noticed one had a pinhole where it folds. They're not perfect, but we only need water in them long enough to pump to the TT's FW storage tank. We don't loose too much water from the small hole... and it could probably be patched if needed.

So far they're working okay. They can also be collapsed and stored along with a small marine pump and hoses in one smallish sized plastic tote.

We'll see how they perform long term.

Happy Camping!
John.
