5 Gallon Water Carrier is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spigot handle assembly breaks within 2 weeks. I have had a jug like this one that lasted over 10 years of regular summer camping use and it finally cracked last summer, so I replaced it with this new version. The jug is of good quality - however the handle spigot assembly is complete junk. I had to order a replacement at $10 (from Amazon b/c Coleman doesn't even have them!) and the new replacement lasted exactly 2 weeks of normal use before breaking. I will probably cobble together my own assembly out of plumbing parts I can buy at the hardware store - but I shouldn't have to! Coleman should quit selling these until they get a better spigot assembly. I've now spent over $25 on this jug and will have to spend more to get it functional again. Grrrrr!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice container, but spigot is destined for failure Got this for the cabin where I have used it only a few times moving it from downstairs (water source) to the upstairs kitchen. The last visit, the spigot lever cracked, and this time it simply broke off. This was not abused. The lever plastic molding is very thin and upon examination, it's no surprise that it broke. There's no reason Coleman needed to save 0.3 cents on plastic. This must have been yet another design intended to fail. Though the blue container seems well made, a broken spigot makes it totally useless. So, 1 star overall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from spigot is faulty I usually prefer Coleman products, but not the 5 gallon jugs anymore, if they offered replacement parts, I'd buy more, but they don't, and the spigots are the worst, they leak easily if not closed tight, one of them was extremely hard to turn, then froze, the other broke, now both are useless trash, I just hope these jugs can be recycled. Also.. the ring seal is easy to lose, I've had to replace those if anyone else but me refills them, I know they fall off. So I take them off and set them aside, but my kids could care less and end up losing them every time. I'll be looking for better spigots elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Container with weak Faucet Assembly This is an old favorite in my camping gear, but the "redesigned" Faucet Assembly is weak at best. The original version of the faucet lasted 15 + years of rugged use, the container itself is STILL in great shape! However, the latest version has to be handled with extreme care or the faucet twisty handle will break off easily within weeks. The plastic is too thin at that point and will not stand up to anything above delicate use. Please bring back the old faucet design and you will have a customer for life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and convenient I've personally owned one of these for several years and the BSA troop I was in a few years ago had several and all of them held up well. I've seen recent reviews complaining about the spigot being flimsy but I don't think it is. I bought two new ones anyway (assuming I could interchange spigots if needed). The new spigot has a stop that prevents you from turning the handle more than a half-turn which is fine. Just don't force it and the handle should work for a long time. The vent tabs are the same and will still have a tendency to break after a few years. Be careful and they'll last long (but not forever).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Faucet The faucet handle breaks off during NORMAL USE. The blue container part is nice, but it doesn't do me any good if the faucet is busted. I called about a replacement faucet a couple months ago. The Coleman representative said that the replacement faucets would be available in November. It is now December 17th and they are STILL not available on the website (or anywhere else for that matter).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought two - Valves broke on the first outing... And now I've been waiting almost 4 months for replacements - Had to go buy two more from a different manufacturer so we could camp. Don't by these - Wasted money. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it I have bought 4 of these (I should have learned). All 4 have had the faucet break. I was told they would have replacements in Nov. Didn't happen. Then was told the middle of Dec. We'll see.
