Water carriers that don't make the water taste minging

I have a Tosco water carrier. It's kind of bag like, not hard plastic.

Is there a water carrier available that doesn't make the water taste disgustingly plastic-y? It's really hideous even after boiling it.

Need to consider lack of space too.... I'd love an aquaroll but they take up too much room.

You get a normal big water bottle from a supermarket... and don't bother with a 'carrier' grin
I tried a few carriers and realised they all make it taste weird and you don't need to store that much water anyway.

What you mean like a huuuuuuge evian type bottle?

although it would be Tesco own brand in our case grin

We just have a hard plastic one with a tap, the water just tastes like water.

Before every trip I clean it with bicarb, lemon juice and white vinegar, to get rid of any kind of smell or taste.

Agree I started with the huge bottle of water from the supermarket afer my water container got a hole inthe bottom, tastes much better. Don't get the fancy mineral stuff though goes all horrible in the kettle.

We use Sigg water bottles, but admittedly they are too small to use as water storage next to tent.

3-litre bottle of Robinsons squash works well once empty - they even have a handle!

Our collapsible one leaked at the first go, never again.

We've given up bothering to take a water container, we only really use it to fill the kettle anyway so we just take that to the tap. Besides, if you have a heavy container, you can't send the children to do it for you, but they can manage to carry a kettle by themselves wink.
