Yes, Reliance folding jugs crack in the corners where they fold and then leak, but they are not totally useless.
They don't leak much (and not at all if you rotate the leak to the top).
They are cheap
(both meanings, I guess) $5 for 5 gal.
They fold nicely for storage
They work well for taking ashore in the dinghy
and bring back water to put in the boat's tanks
. Six fit nicely in my dinghy
They are no good for longer term water storage
anyway, because on deck
in the sun algae grows in transparent containers.
All that said this year my second favorite marine
store (WalMart) had replaced the Reliance folding jugs with Coleman folding jugs. I now have three Reliance and three Coleman. After one year I think the Coleman is the better product. None of them leak so far.
