Why use a gamma lid and not a regular snap on lid?

If I'm going to put a bag inside anyhow why not use a regular snap on lid and don't worry about the O-rings?

Why put a bag in bucket? Those snap fit can be a bugger sometimes to get open.

In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is strength, in water there is bacteria.

I used gamma lid for my lunch bucket, it consistently leaked (it was in the front of the boat for easy access). The snap on lids leak if they are submersed, for routine runs with splashing it's drier, but I often need a bucket wrench to crack them open (I am a women). Life Latch are the best except they are so water tight vapor lock is a problem, that's what I use now.
