Vapur in the News
Vapur Explorer Series MicroFilter Bottle
Vapur has been making roll-up water bottles for a while now – very useful when space and weight is at a premium. This year, they’ve unveiled the MicroFilter bottle – a roll-up, BPA-free one-liter water bottle with a 0.2-micron filter insert. Simply fill the bottle up with whatever H2O you can find, screw in the filter and drink up. The company claims this filter removes 99.9999 percent of bacteria as well as protozoan cysts (like cryptosporidium and giardia), and will clean 500 liters of water before needing replacement. Best of all, the filter flows freely, allowing for easy, instant drinking. (The filter can even be used as a straw to suck water right from the source.) Each pack comes with two bottles and one filter; one bottle with filter weighs less than 70 grams. – DW
Backpacker Magazine: 2013’s Best New Gear – VAPUR ELEMENT
When space and weight are precious commodities, a bulky, hard-sided water bottle is a liability as soon as it’s empty. The foldable, 1 liter Element solves that problem. Made from a soft, three ply, BPA-free polypropylene and nylon material, it rolls up like a tube of toothpaste. You can secure it with the plastic carabiner or stash it in a tiny crevice of your pack (it’s no bigger than a stack of business cards). I feel in love with this bottle on a trip to Hawaii’s Big Island. It was perfect for air travel because I could stow it empty in my crammed carry-on. On the trail, the screw-on cap makes refills easy, and I love the flip-top for splash-proof drinking. The Element is dishwasher safe and didn’t adopt any funky smalls, even over four months of use. Gripes: The sharp corners tore a few holes in my pack’s mesh bottle holders. And you won’t get a lifetime of use out of it: Vapur expects these bottles to last three to four year. And filling it other than from straight above can be tricky.
12% – The percentage of the 200 billion bottles of water consumed globally every year that will be recycled. Companies like Vapur are working to improve these numbers by providing awareness about both the environmental and global water crisis and through their reusable bottles.
