The price is outstanding for what the product is. The quality is mediocre, but overall I'm satisfied.
I purchased four cans across two orders. Three of mine have rusty cap chains, two had a small amount of water in them, and one had a minor leak that soaked a carpet.
That being said, considering these are 1/2 the cost of a new Scepter can, it's a great value. If I can get the leaky one replaced I'll be buying more.
First off, it's a fine five gallon water jug that any veteran will quickly recognized. Mine had some scuffs on it, but failed the "daylight test" with a small split in the bottom seam. There is also a pin hole at the top of the jug in a crease.
I'm sure I could contact keepshooting and they'd replace it without fuss, but I just patched the inch long split in the plastic seam on the bottom and won't worry about the one on top.
More importantly, they've been stored properly in the sense that it was empty before putting it up - even with a leak if they'd of had water in there in storage there'd be a musty odor. To be safe I ran some diluted bleach through it after patching.
Rec'd 2 today, overall VG+ condition. A bit scuffed on the outside from use, inside had water with no smell and looked new. Very tough water can.
