Questions on PlatyPreserve

- What's the difference between this and a regular Platypus "bottle".
- Thanks for the question. The main difference is that the PlatyPreserve is opaque and will not let any light through. The wine's flavor can be damaged by UV light if left out in the sun, and a regular PlatyBottle would not protect it. Also, the PlatyPreserve is perfectly sized for the contents of a standard 750 ml wine bottle, so it's a little easier to handle when completely full. Thanks!

Platypus - PlatyPreserve
Quick OverviewKeep your wine fresh while in the backcountry
Whether you are a connoisseur, an enthusiast or a casual admirer of wine, one truth remains: the delicate taste of wine changes upon exposure to oxygen. That means wine is best enjoyed within a few hours of being opened. If not properly preserved, wine can go bad in as little as 2 to 8 hours. The PlatyPreserve is the best way to protect the taste of an opened bottle of wine by completely eliminating the presence of oxygen. While alternative methods might have you pump air out of the bottle or inject gas into the bottle- PlatyPreserve has you transfer your un-finished wine into an air tight reservoir to truly protect the taste of your wine so it may be enjoyed several days or even weeks later. It is also a lot easier and lighter to pack than glass bottles.

These things are amazing! I'm sure it seems like a silly product to some, but they really work well. Once the air is squeezed out, wine stays fresh for at least five days (I haven't tried any longer than that), and the flavor doesn't linger once it's rinsed out. The PlatyPreserve is my best friend on backcountry ski trips!
