Where's the price?

Are they all made of the same material? That crinkle plastic like the Sawyer squeeze bags? The matte colored bags look like they are made of a softer plastic or is that just an illusion?

Hey, experience and knowledgeable hikers, 99.9% of protozoa sound like it might as well be 0% because of how many protozoa could be in a liter of water? Does this number sounds acceptable, should I even be concern about protozoa?

If you're using a Sawyer it's way better than 99.9% and anyways, getting sick from something like this is a numbers game. Your body has lots of defenses too, and it's easier to defend against 100 protozoa than it is from 10,000.

How has it perform? I am very cautious about stuff from China? They could be from the same factory as the genuine article or a complete cheap ripoff that contain a bunch of banned chemical. Do you have the genuine bottle to compare it to?

I got one too. It seems entirely identical to the vapur ones (but it's .7L). The price on those has gone up a fair bit, probably because the secret's out now (same thing happened with the big agnes clone tents). You can get a 3 pack for 8.95 with free shipping, though. https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-x-Light-Sport-Water-Bottle-Flexible-Collapsible-Foldable-Reusable-Outdoor-0-7L/253572607369?hash=item3b0a1aed89:g:vQcAAOSwfxFbh8yO:rk:14:pf:0
I've been using Vapur bottles for years, and I generally like them a lot. I had no problems until I bought a DrinkLink through MD and the 1.5L bottle started leaking on me after a few months. It surprised me since my several years old bottles that I carry/use almost daily haven't leaked. Vapur replaced my leaking 1.5L bottle and so far the replacement has held up longer. I guess time will tell.
I've mostly had good luck with Vapur. 5 good bottles to 1 leaking bottle. The oldest two (and still most used) bottles are about 5-6 years old.
That said, I've seen a lot of comments on MD from people with leaking bottles. Anecdotally it seems that if your bottle is going to spring a leak, it will do so in the first 2-3 months.
It's still a great concept, and (in my opinion) one of the best designs for a collapsible water bottle. But it seems that the quality control isn't perfect, so you're taking a risk. At least in my experience, they replaced the leaking bottle for free.

Also had one of my Vapur’s develop a leak. Contacted them and they quickly replaced it, too. Good products, good warranty and service. Now if they could just help me to keep from losing them......
Just gonna end up inevitably in the Pacific Gyre...Trash.
My friend had these on the Wonderland Trail and they failed her within days. I'll pass....
I bought two of these bottles with the DrinkLink system. I really like them but after 4 months both bottles started leaking. One from the shoulder (first image) and the other from the bottom (second image). Not a big deal when you're in the city, but when you're in the backcountry, it gets pretty annoying. I contacted Vapur about it, but they never got back to me. Sad to say, I'll have to look elsewhere for a more durable hydration system.

Can I defend myself from a bear attack with these ?

If you try hard enough, maybe.

Real questions is can you defend yourself from Chuck Norris with these? Oh wait! There is no defense against Chuck Norris.
I've been using them for almost two months, so far really pleased. Easily to roll and packs really small when empty. Really convenient to go through airport security and fill just before boarding. No leaks, no weird taste.
yooo
I need to update my review, while it's been working great for another couple months a small leak appeared and well that sucks haha. if it really has less than a year in it (with using it once a week) this is not great..
The design and color on these are really sleek, but I had a chance to test it in real life and was not impressed. Platypus brand is superior, lighter, lower profile, cheaper, and has hydration tube accessories. I've never had leaking problems with Platypus.
my tracking number doesn't work, but as it has been only two weeks not expecting it quite yet.

Got these awhile back (a year ago?), just wanna share my thoughts.
Bought them with the initial impression of using them only for long hikes, where space and weight is important, but gradually, I started using it daily as well. No leaks thus far, using it for just warm to cold water.
IMHO, i think everyone should have at least one of such bottles, and given its price, why not? :)
Is there an option to attach a hydration tube?
Too bad they are only available with tap-fill lids. I can understand the attractiveness to day-trippers. A widemouth is essential for most purifiers.

I saw a review of the 1L size with the included filter. While watching the review it left me with questions. I wondered how difficult it would be to fill these flexible bottles (i.e. I fill my Sawyer sqeeze dirty bag with a cut off water bottle or it takes forever to fill from a running stream and often, the running stream is a trickle and dirt would otherwise get into the dirty bag which hampers the filter). Another question while watching the review: How do you drink from the same bottle that has been dipped fully in dirty water without compromising the good water? The reviewer commented it took a while for water to come out the filter drink end, so the reviewer suggested squeezing the bottle to aid the water flow which left me wondering how much will the water flow be hampered as the filter clogs especially if filling directly from a trickling stream with dirt (a frequent occurrence in some places like the CT). Just curious. Anyone got some answers?

I joined the drop a while back. I've used the vapur bottled before, so I'm pretty familiar with the products. The 1L bottle that I ordered through the drop works perfectly. The 1.5L leaks like crazy though. I emailed Vapur to receive a new one for free, due to the defect of the bottle. The second 1.5L I received thought leaked near where you screw the cap. So I would recommend on getting two one L instead on the 1.5L.
I picked up the blue 1.5l and the black 1.0l bottles during the last drop. They have worked fantastically on the trail. No leaking, easy to use top for drinking/pouring. I mainly use the bottles for cooking water, so once they are emptied, I just roll them up and make even more room in my pack. The tops come off as well for easier fill-up.
Got some of these bottles These are fantastic for trekking abroad for two reason: 1) They can be used as emergency water carriers for when your bottle breaks, and also if you miscalculated the amount of water you'll need and suddenly have to carry more water 2) Before and after trekking, I leave my main hydration solution, be it nalgene bottles or a reservoir, at the hotel. I then fill up this bottle which is much more comfortable for edc use
Well the bottles arrived yesterday, and I've. Even putting them through their paces but I've noticed that one of the two bottles that I have (the 1.5 liter bottle) leaks very slowly by the lid area of the bottle. It seems the plastic mold that's sealed into the bottle is compromised a small bit in one area. Still trying to figure out if the other bottles have the same issue

I'm pretty happy with mine! I didn't realize how much I'd appreciate the fact that they get smaller as you drink the water (i just squeeze it before I close it). Stood up to almost a month of abuse (and no washing) in Hawaii. Also perfect for my dog's backpack (its pockets are weirdly shaped and won't hold rigid water bottles).
What are these like to clean and dry? Unfortunately, I have a bad habit of leaving water bottles in my car (with varying amounts of water in them) for days. My current bottle is metal, so I can bleach it no problem if mold/mildew has shown up. I assume there's nothing in these bottles that would react to bleach, but I just wanna make sure. Also, can they go in the dishwasher?
Dr.McCoy
I washed the ones I picked up in the previous drop with soap and water. They are listed as dishwasher safe ( https://vapur.us/answers-features-and-care ). I'm not sure I would use bleach without contacting them. You could always use white vinegar (acetic acid) as it is a cheap and green alternative disinfectant.
This isn't even a deal - you can buy them at a ton of other online retailers for less that $15 - not a clearance or sale price. They are 13.99 at walmart.

But this is a two pack, the price you mentioned is just for one I believe which would make this a better deal.
