Travel Must Have: Vapur Review and GIVEAWAY!! **ENDED**

Sponsored post* Affiliate links

One of the more frustrating vacation issues is how to stay hydrated. Whether you are at an amusement park or the beach, it is so important to make sure that you have a drink with you. So, the quandary is: do you buy a soda at the park for $17 or do you bring a water bottle but then have to lug the heavy thing and then empty thing around throughout the day? Neither of these options are appealing to me, so I was thrilled when I saw Vapur, the Anti-Bottle.

Vapur is a fantastic water pouch that stands like a bottle, then folds and flattens when empty! Here are the great features:
  • Super light weight
  • Reusable
  • Folds up small enough to fit in your pocket when empty
  • Stands up when full
  • Has a hook so the bottle can be attached to your bag, pants, whatever!
  • Has a writable surface so you can put your name
  • Holds 16 oz of water
  • Water can be frozen
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Made in the USA

Review: I LOVE this Anti-Bottle. One thing that really irritates me is having to carry around water bottles. I love that this can hook to something . Even if you do decide to carry it, it is so light weight so it is not a burden.  The plastic is durable and I am not concerned about it wearing down quickly. It is also leak proof. I accidentally left the Vapur in a bag, tipped over, for a day and it did not leak at all. I am now a huge fan and will be buying these instead of other reusable water bottles from now on!

Buy it here: You can buy Vapur Anti-Bottles online from their website or online (in multipacks) from Amazon. 

Win it here: Vapur is offering one lucky Cake Mom reader an Anti-Bottle!

I like that it stands when it's full, and when it's empty, it rolls or folds!

I love that the Vapur flexible bottle can "fold-and-go"— which means it can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty...that's cool!

I love that you can freeze it! Nice cold water to last longer then, most regular bottles don't do very well in the freezer. Thanks for the chance into this giveaway!

I love how it's easy to travel with, especially the belt hook. Me and my 3yo love going for walks at MiddleCreek Wildlife Reserve and it's difficult to be carrying around snacks and a couple of water bottles. I also like the fact that it's made in USA!

My absolute necessity that it's ok to freeze. I hate using disposable bottles but the plastic reusable ones always seem to crack after just a few freezes.

two things - it's BPA free and hopefully therefore safe overall (although I'll admit I don't know what else to watch out for!) and it's dishwasher safe. And of course the main reason - it's easy to roll up and carry home when you've emptied it!
