    I prefer the closure cap as I normally use my Platy as a water carrier for canoeing.

    For my little one in my small rucksac that gets a lot of use I like the push cap. It's only for a drink on the move. For the bigger ones, for carrying water or storage I prefer the screw cap.

    cheers,
    Toddy

    Yes, Fred, the more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to go for the closure, it'll be handier filling cups to boil.

    I'm using the little 1L Source bottles at the moment, the idea being that two smaller containers are easier to squash into a pack than one bigger one. The Source ones have the sports caps like you get on Powerade and Lucozade bottles, I'm liking them, a bit harder to clean if you happen to drop one in muck but I like the twist and drink system.
