Does anyone make durable long-lasting collapsible water containers ?

Collapsible water containers are a great concept but the ones I've owned in the past all leaked terribly. Does anyone make super durable collapsible water containers now?

How about any of these? Campmor: collapsible water container

Thanks

The Dromedary bags are very durable, but the largest I've seen is only 10 litres. I used to camp with them in rather rugged conditions, and they never let me down.

In our small boat we've been using just an inexpensive rigid picnic-type water jug with a reversible spigot. Yes it takes the same space full or empty, but at night it now supports an extra board that enlarges the V-berth. The jug is very durable, and doesn't impart a taste to the water.

I second these. They seem quite bomb-proof and stow well when not in use.

How large do you need them to be? Potable Water Storage Bladder | Flexible Water Storage I have used their smaller ones without any problems, and they go up to 200,000 gallons.

I've got 2 swedish army surplus 250liters water bladders. Better than anything sold retail.

How large? I'd rather go portable so I ordered three of these 5.5 gallon Reliance Rhino Pak rigid containers Amazon.com: Reliance Rhino-Pak Heavy Duty Water Container (Grey, Medium): Sports & Outdoors from Campmor.com for only $17 with free shipping but I was thinking it might be nice to have the option of a couple collapsible containers that stow flat when empty in case I need them.
