Finally, a hand held hydration bottle designed to keep up with your active, outdoor lifestyle!

The new Vapur Element was designed to meet the hydration demands that our active/outdoor lifestyles require. So just what are the possibilities? We’ve sent out prototypes with our team that made it to the high peaks of snow-capped mountains, the rocky trail and everywhere in between. It not only withstood the elements, but has proven to be a marquee piece of gear for backcountry skiers, yogis, hikers and more.

Here is a sample of what we’re hearing from our testers:

Skiing

Whether you ski inbounds, duck ropes or tour the backcountry, the Vapur Element is designed with you in mind.  The Element makes it easier than ever to stay hydrated while skiing because it fits discreetly into your jacket or shell pocket.  Plus, because it’s freezable you no longer need to worry about water bottle breaks on powder days!  Here are a couple of testimonials we’re recently received from resort and backcountry Vapur Element users:

“…The Vapur Anti-Bottle is absolutely awesome. It was perfect for the mountain, thanks to its flat-pack design; I just slipped it right into my shell jacket pocket. I’m obsessed with its utility and quality design,” according to an editor at Men’s Fitness magazine who tested the Element on a recent ski trip.

“[I] Took it on [a] hut trip this past weekend- was PERFECT for wine… oh and hydrating with H20 too! It didn’t take up space in the backpack and folded up when empty on ski out.” –Mary Jane Carroll, backcountry aficionado out of Durango, Colorado.

Mary Jane and her crew were humbled when they encountered a 1,000 ft. avalanche slide path hiking near Silverton, Colorado.  We’re thankful everyone had a safe, but epic trip!  Remember that backcountry skiing is not for novices. It’s important to check your avalanche forecast, have the right equipment and complete the proper training before participating in the sport.

Yoga

Many of us love to warm up with hot yoga throughout the winter, especially with sore ski legs!  The Element is the perfect yoga accessory not only because is it lightweight and flexible, just like you, but because you can grab a quick sip in between poses without awkwardly trying to unscrew the cap and dropping it on the floor.  The Element’s Widemouth SuperCap™ allows you to fit ice cubes into the bottle, so your water will stay cold throughout the session.

Backpacking and Camping

The Element is car-camper and backpacker friendly, especially thanks to its antimicrobial lining.  Even if you’re without a dishwasher for several days, a simple rinse will keep that bottle sanitary thanks to the FDA approved, food safe antimicrobial lining that makes up the inner layer of the Element.  Remember to check out the list of warm winter camping getaways if you’re not into snow-caving!

Ice Climbing

After talking with several climbers, ice and alpine alike, we were shocked to hear that they rarely carry water due to the extra weight and bulk it causes.  “It’s bad…” one climber admitted.  The hydration solution for climbers lies in the all-new Vapur Element.  Lightweight? Check! Foldable? Check! Attachable? Check! It’s a no-brainer.

Stay tuned as we gear up for spring sports that are also Element-ready. From paddling, to alpine climbing, to cycling (and beyond) there will be plenty of tips to follow!
