3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesCompact enough to be handyI bought three of these canisters years ago, just in case someone needed oxygen in an emergency. Little did I know that the "someone" would be me. I recently was hospitalized for a week with embolisms in both of my lungs (saddle pulmonary embolism) and could hardly breathe. These canisters ultimately saved my life while being transported to the emergency room via POV. (When you can't breathe, you do not want to wait for the ambulance. We are less than ten minutes away from the emergency room.) I have recently purchased three more of these canisters, "just in case."November 10, 2019Purchased

over 2 years agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWORKS 100% FOR MEI always read all the 'bad' reviews prior to purchasing any product, but must admit I'm puzzled by some of the commentary here. I'm a retired military pilot, rotary and fixed-wing qualified and have owned two high performance retractable airplanes (PA-24 250 Comanche and a Cessna 320B Turbo. At 71 yeas of age, I've ordered and used Sportys' oxygen for decades. First, for those who believe "weight" is a factor - oxygen has NO weight at all in these containers, so the light weight is a plus for me. Next - the number of inhalations is based on 'average' use - and WILL vary by personal factors of each user. I understand that and buy these by the case, carrying extra for that reason alone. Sportys' has an excellent return/replace policy which anyone can use if not satisfied, and that's another reason I've been with them for as long as I have. These portable oxygen containers have always functioned exactly as advertised for me. I have never encountered any problem with them as I fully understand their pros and cons. All of that said, I recommend "Buy With Confidence."

I may try it just to see, but don't feel that it was a good buy.September 27, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoResponse from Sporty's Pilot ShopThank you for the review. Oxygen is light. As a result, the canister doesn't have much weight to it. When you press the lever, you will hear the compressed air coming out.September 27, 2017Doug R Staff
