Since 2010, EZPack Water has been developing, manufacturing, and selling proprietary water storage solutions for use in harsh conditions. 

The company started developing its water bladder products for supplying water to remote areas for agricultural use and for supplying drinking water to remote villages in Africa where the infrastructure is lacking. More recently, the company developed a unique water transportation system to quickly refill firefighting engines close to their point of deployment during wildfires and in remote locations to reduce their downtime and increase their efficiency. 

EZPack-USA, based in California, aims to distribute ECO-friendly, reusable water storage products for outdoor markets such as camping, RV, ATV and off-roading and for home emergency preparedness to assure water supply in case of natural disasters. Using these water containers can prevent countless plastic water bottles being discarded in nature or piling up in landfills. 


JerryFlex — Collapsible Jerry Can

JerryFlex — Collapsible Jerry Can

Our water storage containers are based on a proprietary, two-layer bladder technology. The outer shell is puncture resistant thanks to its rugged, military grade design. It can withstand harsh conditions, whether during transportation when surrounded by other gear, or in rugged terrain in the great outdoors. 

The inner liner is made from an FDA-approved, food-grade, BPA-free material. Its simple swapability comes in especially handy if cleaning the water container is not an option during your trip or if you want to avoid bacteria or mildew formation, which can lead to odor and bad-tasting water. Furthermore, replacing the inner liner avoids the use of cleaning chemicals and cleaning solutions altogether – another win for the environment. 

EZPack features two types of water storage containers: 

JerryFlex — Collapsible Jerry Can

This is a flexible jerry can-style container with an inner bladder, available in 2.5- and 5-gallon sizes. These containers are ideal for shorter trips and can also be used as a mobile refill station for water bottles when hiking or biking.

The container’s dimensions are compatible with jerry can holders found in the back of SUVs and 4-wheel drive vehicles, but can easily fit inside your vehicle as well. The JerryFlex is equipped with adjustable straps that can be used to tie it to the exterior of vehicles, including ATVs, or to secure it in place in the back of a truck. 

The sewn-on handles and straps are ideal to carry JerryFlex around easily, in case you need to relocate during your stay.

The JerryFlex offers the following advantages:

  • Always fresh tasting water — the JerryFlex uses a BPA-free, food-grade insert.

  • No maintenance or cleaning is required – just replace the inner bladder insert.

  • Fills up quickly — fill it up with any faucet or garden hose.

  • Add ice cubes — the large opening allows for adding ice cubes to keep the water cool.

  • Super durable — the JerryFlex has been tested for military use.

  • Mobile — sewn-on handles and adjustable straps allow for carrying it around.

  • Easy transportation — fits any standard jerry can holder or can be strapped to truck bed.

  • Minimal storage space — when empty JerryFlex collapses by 80%.

Water Storage Bladder 

This is the ultimate potable water container for drinking, cooking, and cleaning when out and about, boon docking or when traveling to remote areas. These containers also feature an inner, exchangeable bladder and are available in 5-, 10-, 25-, and 50-gallon sizes. They come equipped with heavy-duty handles that allow them to be moved around in your campsite or lifted onto a table for easier access. 

Both JerryFlex and the Water Storage Bladder have a large three-inch opening that allows for easy, quick filing from a faucet or a garden hose, as well as adding ice to keep your water cold. 

Both containers come equipped with a heavy-duty, industrial spigot, which will not leak or break and can easily be connected to a garden hose. This is especially handy for the larger water storage bladders, which can get quite heavy once full. 

When packing your vehicle, space is a precious commodity. The empty water bladders are fully collapsible to only 20% of their original size, which allows you to flatten them and tuck them into a tight space between your other gear. The same goes when storing it between trips in your garage or closet. 

Thanks to the high quality of materials and workmanship EZPack-USA uses to manufacture our products, they are backed by a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
