Default Vapur - The Anti-Bottle.



Advertise Here

I spied these on amazon the other day. http://vapur.us/
Picked two up for $14 and some change. Pretty nifty little "bottle", when empty there completely flat except for the tip. The are extemely light, freezable, compact and come with a carabiner to attach to you belt, pack etc. The only issue I see so far is there only 16oz, but I figured it would be a nice addition to you pack, vehicle etc. I know I will be using one for libations when I am out on extended trips...no bulkiness to pack out.
Thought I would share.

Pretty cool looking and nice design. I like that it is BPA free. Maybe a christmas gift?

Cut the top off, and probably good for slow boiling water.

Looks like a rehash of

I used platypus for years. They are great but I dont know if they were BPA free when I was using them

The old Army 5-qt canteen work really well. Really more of a bladder than a canteen, it has a nylon cover that helps keep it from getting punctured. Empty, it makes a good pillow, too.

They are just hard to find any more. The Army stopped issuing them a long time ago.

How easy are these to clean? I know the regular bladders are kind of a pain.

Every month I throw a few T of baking soda and (half filled) water in it, then massage it around so scrubs the inside, has worked great!

Default Nice Concept - Shame about the Leak

I just received a Vapur bottle as a birthday gift. Unfortunately I found all to soon that the lid is not leak proof. I therefore now have to face the embarrassment of informing the giver that the gift is useless.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth;
No need to make the giver feel bad just grin, say thanks and walk away.

Re; cleaning bladders bottles etc; Polident tabs seem to be regularly recommended.
Good enough and safe enough for dentures...

Enjoy!

Not that easy! The fact I am not using it will be noticed. I have no choice but to explain. Also the product seems no good, so why should they (the supplier) get away with it? It might be a knock-off or something, in any case the giver needs to know if she's being duped by her supplier.

Just might be a defective one while the vast majority are fine. Happens.

Could be. Strange though, that after I told her about mine, we tested the one she also got herself, and that one leaks even worse!

tried putting a silicone or rubber seal in the lid? Kinda like the top of a pop bottle where you have the plastic seal to keep from leaking.

Sure, I could go the route of redesigning their product for them. But I have my own stuff to think about and spend time on.

Maybe I'll pass your suggestion on to the Vapur company when they get back to me in response to the complaint I made to them today.

No reply yet, however. Guess I'll just stick it in the bin with the other garbage.
