Disposable water bottles are wasteful, and yet there are deterrents to carrying the eco-friendly reusable kind: Even when empty, they’re clunky and take up valuable bag space. Here’s a brilliant solution: Vapur’s Anti-Bottle, essentially a lidded Doypack that rolls up so that it can be stashed in your bag or jacket pocket.
This year, the California-based company introduced a new line with a larger fluid capacity geared toward outdoors adventurers and urban warriors alike. The so-called Element comes with a wide-mouth cap for gulping and a strong integrated clip for hanging it on packs. Like all of Vapur’s Anti-Bottles, it’s made in the U.S. from a three-ply combination of BPA-free nylon and antimicrobial polyethylene, making it foldable, freezable, and dishwasher safe. For toting hot beverages, however, you’ll want to stick with the traditional insulated variety.
