GearI wasn’t paid to give the Vapur Water Bottle 10 out of 10.  It just earned it.

So what is this and why should you care? Working in the City of London, I carried a water bottle around the place – you know, the regular large 1 litre hard plastic, BPA-free bottle.

When I was reading about ways to minimise packing space for travel, I came across this company, Vapur (read more).

The bottle lies completely flat when empty, like a plastic envelope really and the top comes off to reveal a wide mouth, making the bottle super easy and fast to fill up from a filter water tap or a water bottle.

It folds down to almost nothing and can be easily stowed in your bag for flight days.  When folded/rolled, the handy carabiner clip clips around the body of the bottle to hold it in place.

The carabiner clip is handy for clipping the water bottle onto your rucksack or even your tray table on an airplane.

Here you can see the wide neck, ready for filling!

It’s wide enough to take the whole bottle lip, meaning no spills.

When it’s full (capacity: one litre), the water bottle will stand up on its own.  As the lid is pretty sturdy, if you lay it flat when full, it won’t leak or cause a mess.

I was slightly worried that the material would tear but – so far – it’s been in and out of rucksack pockets, on four flights and through airport security (full of water – thanks, Brazil) and it’s not been even slightly damaged.

This is a definite 10 out of 10!  And it costs less then a tenner on Amazon UK.
