Collapsible & Reusable Water Bottles – Vapur Review


Fold them, roll them, take them on the go! That’s what the unique Vapur Reusable Water Bottles allow you to do. Recently, I purchased the Vapur Element (Water) and I love it. It makes drinking the recommended amount of water (6-8 glasses) a lot easier. Are you thinking about buying a Vapur Element or one of their other lines of reusable water bottles? You’re in luck, because this is the review for you.

What makes it stand out?

The distinctive feature of the Vapur Water Bottle (as alluded to earlier) is that it is collapsible. This feature puts it ahead of its competition as you can take it anywhere and fit it in even the smallest of spaces. The loop on the cap is another distinctive feature as well. This allows it to easily be carried wherever you go. It is also BPA free (unlike plastic bottled water) and is dishwasher safe (again, unlike plastic bottled water).

Who are they for?

Some water bottles are geared towards a specific crowd, but Vapur can be used in a variety of ways. You’ll notice that many are sprouted for its outdoor use (which is true), I found myself using it for more than just the outdoors as I regularly used it for lunch, dinner, etc. I guess you can say I became addicted to it.


The purchase will pay for itself simply by avoiding the cost of bottled water from the store. However, the Vapur water bottles are still well priced. The Vapur Element is priced at $7.99 and the other series that Vapur offers (Reflex, Island, Runway, Quencher for Kids) are priced as low as $5.99.

Where Do I buy it from?

Glad you asked. carries all of the above series and the Vapur Anti-Bottles as well. After placing your order, we’ll have it delivered directly to your door all at the internet’s lowest prices.

Personally, I love having the Vapur Element and would recommend any of the Vapur water bottles to anyone. If you’re looking to cut back on the plastic waste from bottled water, then this is obviously a great choice. Seriously, what more could you want in a water bottle? Its reusable, affordable, environmentally safe, and offers features that many water bottles do not offer. Buy a Vapur water bottle. You’ll be glad you did.
