Platypus Big Zip Evo


The Big Zip EVO is the very latest in the evolution of taste-free hydration. The Big Zip EVO delivers a significantly higher flow rate than previous Platypus® reservoirs and offers a host of new features, making it a great option for backpackers, hikers, and mountain bikers.

Secure SlideLock™: Slides both directions to easily open, securely close and fill reservoir.

Handy Pincher Grip: Allows for easy one-handed filling.

High Mount Quick-disconnect: Offers fast, easy access—no more digging down in your pack.

Leak-proof Shut-off Valve: Instantly stops flow and offers reliable stowing. The Big Zip EVO Shutoff Valve is a new leak-proof valve made specifically for the Big Zip™ EVO Reservoir. The improved design offers a wider angle for faster water flow, an embossed water droplet icon to indicate when water flow is engaged (taking away any guesswork on whether or not water is in on or off mode), and a larger on/off lever for ease of use (even with gloves on). The result is a valve that offers faster water flow and a more intuitive on/off lever.

Semi-rigid Center Baffle: Offers low-profile support and makes for easy cleaning and drying.

HyFLO Self-sealing Bite Valve: Improves flow along with new, larger 5/16" drink tube. The HyFLO is a streamlined, one-piece bite valve that offers fast-flowing, self-sealing, leak-free performance. Made with a soft, taste-free, medical-grade silicone, the HyFLO stands up to years of use.

Funk-free: Embedded Silver-ion protects clean water from mould & bacteria.

Pure Platy Experience: All materials are certified taste-free, BPA-free, BPS-free, and phthalate-free.
