The Outsiders – New Outdoor Creativity
When space as well as weight matters, the collapsible, reusable Anti-Bottle by California-based Vapur might just do the trick. The Vapur Eclipse in matte olive holds 0.7L of hot or cold beverage and comes with a widemouth flip top SuperCap for one-handed access.
STAYING HYDRATED ON TRAIL – If you really want to go hassle-free, try the Vapur MicroFilter Anti-Bottle. With an integrated water filter, this 34-ounce bottle just needs to be filled from a lake or stream; then pop the top and drink up. The 3-ply construction makes this a very sturdy soft bottle, and another WT trail-tested favorite.

IN WITH THE CHILL AND OUT WITH THE GROSS – Students at Newbury Park High School have a fellow student to thank for two new fixtures that offer chilled, filtered water. Senior Kathryn Reinke said she was inspired to bring the water stations to her school because the old fountains on the 47-year-old campus were “gross” and dirty and the water that came out of them was warm. “No one really wanted to use them, but people need to hydrate and stay healthy,” said Reinke, 17. Her father, Brent Reinke, co-founded Vapur, a company that makes and sells flexible, reusable water bottles. Vapur also offers stainless-steel hydration stations where people refill water bottles.
