July 3, 2013Hydration Making a Big Splash VAPUR: California-based Vapur, Inc. is on a mission to make hydration incomparably portable with their Anti-Bottles: reusable, handheld, collapsible hydration products. Vapur has taken their mission further with the new Explorer Series MicroFilter, MSPR $70. Weighing 2.7-ounces, the filter and bottle set allows users to filter water in a one-liter Anti-Bottle directly from the stream or lake. The filter is a chemical-free, hollow fiber membrane system with an absolute pore size of 0.2 microns, said to safely remove 99.9999 percent of waterborne bacteria and 99.9 percent of protozoa. The system meets U.S. EPA standards and exceeds CDC recommendations for water purity. Each MicroFilter is capable of purifying hundreds of liters of water from lakes, rivers, streams and tap water over its lifespan. It includes a stop feature so users know it has maxed out its usage when water completely stops flowing through the spout. The Anti-Bottle is manufactured in the USA, is BPA-free, freezable and dishwasher safe.
