Platypus® Big Zip™ LP Reservoir Makes Your Pack Fit Better 

The 30 percent slimmer reservoir lies flat in hydration packs, ensuring a lightweight, perfect fit

Platypus announced the release of the Big Zip LP, a new, low-profile version of its bestselling Big Zip SL hydration system. The 30 percent slimmer, streamlined design allows the reservoir to sit perfectly in a pack and help the pack fit better overall.  

“The Big Zip reservoir has been a staff and customer favorite since its release as the industry’s first wide-mouth reservoir in the early 1990s. We made it even better with a new, low-profile design that lies flat against your back and eliminates the tendency of your pack’s back panel to bulge with a full reservoir,” said Erik Flink, director of Platypus Hydration and Filtration. “This design controls the shape of the reservoir, keeping it flat against your back and reduces sloshing.”
