Love em. They rig so good. But they are a little bit of a pain to get allllll the water out of, but still pretty great. Iíve got 4 and 1 half brick

After looking at several options for large amounts of emergency water storage, my work opted for Water Bricks. Mostly because of how stackable they are and that they are a little easier to carry than five-gallon containers.



I got to check them out when doing a demo of some of our emergency water treatment equipment. Big opening; easy to fill. Handle doesn't seem that beefy, but it's just 3.5 gallons. Nest GREAT. Plastic is perceptibly thinner than the LCI 5-gallon jugs (Scepter).


If you have a big enough cooler and a big enough freezer, you can make a honking big ice cube that won't get your cooler contents wet as it melts.



I still like the LCI jugs.

I'm a big fan. They strap perfectly next to the cooler on my raft and are small enough where anyone can carry them. As the trip goes on and the cooler gets emptied I can move them into the cooler to save space.

Big Fan! I've been using the 3 gallon ones for a couple years.
Honestly, kind of surprised these haven't been more popular within the rafting community.

If I put these next to a cooler, then put a table over the cooler and bricks, can my 5 and 3 year old have an epic dance party without crushing them? Can I sit on the table directly over the bricks and not crush them?

I like the water brick but it does not fit in my Canyon 103 cooler. I like to freeze a block of water for ice as well as drinking water for last day on the trip. The ten liter scepter water jugs fit perfectly. What you use depends a lot on how you want to rig. I prefer to have heavy items as low as possible in my boat. When on longer trips I carry two frozen in my cooler with still lots of food/cube ice room. Also room for two unfrozen in front of my cooler, 3 straps and they are not going anywhere. Still plenty of leg room in front. If I had a frame with side boards to mount on I would be more likely go the water bricks.

Thanks bighorn, that looks slick in the 103 (which I also have). I’ll be picking up some of those 10L jugs when the world opens up once again!

Great for rigging and it beats carrying 5-7 gallon jugs of to camp
