The Playtpus Drinktube is designed to convert any platypus bottle or bladder with a screw top closure into a hydration system. It is also a like-for-like replacement for a damaged or dirty tube for the Hoser hydration system.
The Drinktube can also be used to replace the hose on almost any other hydration system simply by removing the white plastic screw cap and fitting the tube directly to the bladder.

I bought this for spare parts to my 2 litre 'Platypus Big Zip LP' hydration bladder if needed and I can also use it for my 1 litre 'Platypus PlusBottle'. I'm also going to cut off about 5-10 cm from the tube which I will use as an adapter/straw for my 'Sawyer Mini Filter'. This, along with the Cap Adapter will help me to adapt pretty much any water bottle for use with the filter. Just cut a hole in the cap from the bottle and swap it in place of the Screw Cap provided. I can make different sized caps to fit any bottle.
All in all, for just over a tenner this is great kit. I saw a similar size and length hose in a "well known DIY store" for ££9.99. Bit of a rip off when this Platypus Tube Kit also comes with a Bite Valve, Lapel Clip and Bottle Screw-Cap Adapter. Oh, and as mentioned by another reviewer, the tube is very 'grippy'. Helps it to grip onto and around your rucksack.
Love Platypus products! Quality kit.
This tube is exactly what I needed as a replacement- fits my existing platypus perfectly - with no leaks and it fits great on normal bottles of the same size! Cannot believe how grubby my original was! Great service, great price and quick delivery!
I replaced my original Platypus drink tube (approx 5 years old) with this version as I'd lost the bite valve while mountain biking. They have changed the materials used in the newer model and it is more flexible, rubbery and grippy than the original. These combine to make the hose more adjustable and more likely to stay where you set it up when riding.
It is what it is: design simplicity. Transform your Platypus bag into a hydration bladder in moments. The screw cap is good and strong and creates a good seal... it will also fit standard plastic threaded bottle tops.
The tubing connections are good and strong and mine has never leaked in 2 years. The hose is flexible and generally doesn't contaminate the taste of your water. This kit gives you a great hydration system at a fraction of the cost of other leading brands.
I purchased this as a replacement after I lost the drinking valve from the original tube. This model has a much more securely attached valve and the tubing is more hygienic. An excellent upgrade to a good product and it arrived very quickly
