Vapur Bottles


I was approached by the makers of these Vapur bottles a few weeks ago. I was intrigued by them (the bottles, not the makers), so I agreed to give one a try (again, the bottle, not the makers). My kids and I like to drink water on the go, but I hate to spend money on bottled water, not to mention the whole "trashing the earth" factor of bottled water, so we have an eclectic mix of water bottles and sippy cups that take up like 158 cubic yards in my kitchen. Do any of you have a cabinet overflowing with bottles? You know you do if you've ever had to open the cabinet, throw the bottle in, and quickly slam the door shut before everything comes tumbling out.


These Vapur bottles are lightweight and flexible. The bottle stands upright when it's full and collapses flat and can even be rolled up, when it's empty so it takes up very little space. It comes with a carabiner ring so you can clip it to backpacks, lunch bags, purses, whatever. The Vapur bottle also has a spot to personalize it with your name (not that it'll stop your kids from swiping your bottle... ahem, JACKSON!) Actually, I can't complain that Jax took my bottle because he brought it with him to St. Louis last weekend and saved the day with it. When we were walking around the zoo, Brooklyn started whining that she was thirsty. Instead of having to spend like $5 on bottled water or pop, Jackson pulled the bottle out of his pocket and ran to the drinking fountain. Voila! We were all spared from Brooklyn's whining and didn't have to take out a loan to buy everyone drinks (because parents of more than one know that you can't just get one kid a drink, oh no.)


Bottles cost $8.95 for one or $29.95 for a family four-pack. And since you can keep refilling this with tap water, it's a heck of a lot cheaper than buying bottled water every week.

These bottles are durable, dishwasher safe, freezable, BPA-free (BPA is a toxic chemical found in many plastic containers that can leach into the container and be ingested by humans), come in bright blue, green, or pink colors, and hold 16 ounces of fluid!

Additionally, the environmental benefit of using the Vapur is huge. Reusable bottles help reduce the estimated 60 million disposable water bottles that end up in landfills every day in America alone, according to the Container Recycling Institute. The Vapur is also manufactured in the U.S. and ships flat, resulting in a carbon footprint that is significantly less than other plastic bottles.

Finally, as a member of 1% For the Planet, the company is donating a portion of all sales to water related environmental causes. 1% For the Planet is an alliance of businesses that donate at least 1% of their annual revenues to environmental organizations worldwide.

These bottles just make sense. Use them and you'll save money on bottled water and you'll help save the earth too. Plus, as my son and his friends say, "These bottles are cool!" So, there you have it.

Now I've got 3 Vapur bottles for 3 random winners! Leave me a comment with how you'd use these bottles or what feature you like most about them and I'll choose the random winners on Friday. Good luck!


I did receive one free Vapur bottle to test out before writing my review, but was not paid for this post.

***** Edited to answer some of your questions *****

I admit we've only had this bottle for about 2 weeks, so I can't honestly say that it lasts forever. I don't know. It might, it might not. The way I look at it, even if it only lasts 6 months before needing to be replaced, I'll still be saving a ton of money on bottled water.

Also, several of you have asked how easy it is to clean. It's top rack dishwasher safe. So far, I haven't had any problems cleaning it. Of course, we just put water in it so it's not especially dirty or anything, but it's been coming out clean with no problems.

To the person who mentioned using these in airports, what a fantastic idea! I didn't even think of that! You can take the rolled up bottle with you through airport security and fill it with water on the other side, saving yourself a $5 bottle of water!

And finally, you can buy them HERE.

I love that it can roll up small for storage and the sport top!

Brooke said...

Love these bottles. Where wouldn't I use them...at the gym, hook em to my bag. At work, throw it in my drawer when empty. In the car.

Great new product. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

These look pretty cool, and probably really good for lunch bags. I have a stainless steel one for my daughter and sometimes it leaks, this looks like it wouldn't leak and she can roll it up when she's done with it.

P.s. Just delurking to comment and maybe win!

Jennie said...

I recently started running, so having something like this bottle would be great to take along.

Plus, my husband likes to have a bottle of water on his nightstand, so we go through at lest a case a month, and I'd love to save money and the planet!

ST said...

These bottles look cool - I am always looking for ways to transport drinks...I have 4 under the age of 5 so we drink lots of water around here (among other things)
Stephanie

I_Am_Who_I_Am said...

Very cool!! As the mum of 9 kids (yes, NINE!) I am always trying to find a better & easier way to provide my kids with water without the expense & pain of bottled water.(not to mention what to do with the empty bottles because my purse can only hold so many!) I love how the Vapur bottles collapse! Again I say, "VERY COOL!!"

Chris said...

I ordered three of them-you order them through Amazon so maybe those of you outside the US can get them too. By ordering three, I got free shipping. Almost like getting one free. You can't get the 4 packs yet. Pick me Dawn and I'll make sure my kids get the three I ordered plus the one I win!! Chris in PA (post #2)

Kelly said...

Those are cool! We have some water bottles, but I hate having to drag around the empty bottles after we drink them, so I end up leaving them in the car half the time. Or at home. I'd love to keep one of these rolled up in my purse to fill up (even from the car water bottles) and then roll it back up and tuck it away when we're done! I love the airport idea, too, btw!

Jen said...

I carry water with me everywhere but can't stand to lug around the empty bottle. What a GREAT idea!!

Mike, Adrienne and Lincoln said...

I love the idea of these water bottles! I could definitely see keeping one in the diaper bag for when we need to get a drink somewhere! Thanks!

JennM said...

What a neat idea. I love that I can squish it down to save space!

Laura said...

This looks perfect! We all carry water bottles to school, work, sports, etc. I love the portability of this, because sometimes I forget my water bottle, and I could leave this in my purse for emergencies (well, at least twice a week in my case!). Love the carabiner, too.

Anonymous said...

This would be great to take with me to play rehearsals--and it'd keep me from being tempted to buy water or soda from the machine in the green room. :)

Josh and Emily said...

My husband and I are full time students and both hold part tim jobs. We are constantly everywhere. Since I found out I as pregnant we have set a goal to drink more water. But I can't get him to take a water bottle in his backpack and the hard plastic one I use leaks if not held upright. I would be excited about something so convienent.

Heather said...

With my 3 kids we have multiple cabinets filled with plastic bottles falling on our heads. These collapsible ones sound like they will solve those problems. Of course, the kids will still probably lose them or throw them away at school, but maybe not.

Did you have any leaking issues?

Kelly in Texas said...

Oooo! I like it! Cool that you can break it down, squish it, and roll it! :)

Jessi said...

I have to say those bottles look really neat! I love flashy water bottles, because I don't drink nearly enough water, but a cute bottle inspires me to drink more than I normally would! I love the fact that these can be stored flat, because I definitely have the cupboard overflowing situation!

Tammy said...

Very cool! I might have to invest in some. I worry about the BPA thing, and I hate to think of the bazillion empties in landfills.

Lisa said...

I have something similar, although not as cool looking, that I have used for YEARS and YEARS with a Platypus logo on them. I bought mine at REI and they have traveled all over the place with me. I often use them to travel with wine in an unbreakable container :-)

They are REALLY sturdy and they don't hold flavor from what was in them last.

kafein said...

One for the diaper bag, one for the gym bag. Awesome.

Stacy said...

I want one- to save space in the cabinet! i have about 10 sports bottles, with no lids, that fall out of the cabinet everytime i open it. can't throw away unless that lid shows up.

Melissa, Greenville, SC said...

These would be great for when my husband I go hiking! We could roll them up and stick them in our pockets when done with them and not have to carry the bottle/container all day!

Anonymous said...

So very cool...I would use this on my evening walk with my husband.

VERY VERY COOL! I would LOVE to have these for my family! :D Please please pick me. :D XOXO

Gayle said...

Those are very neat. My girls love to take bottled water to school to drink during class, because they aren't allowed to have anything else. The issue I have with that is, I get so tired of cleaning up the water bottles, and buying water bottles every single week, because unfortunately our water here just sucks. So-that's what I would use them for. It'd be great to be able to freeze them and then just send them off to school with these and them stay cold. Fabulous give away-hope I win!

Vicki said...

I have 3 kids in sports, so this would be FABULOUS to carry in a backpack to school and fill at the fountain for practice or games. I hope I win!!

Kyla in KY said...

Oh, these would help so much, can't wait to try them. We are always on the run - 2 boys who play on traveling soccer teams.

SMK said...

WOW!!! I love those! I am on botle overload in this house- those would be stuffed in all of our bags!

Sharon said...

Love that they collapse. I just threw away=recycled, a bunch of bottles that the kids have collected over the years. Wasn't sure if the plastic were safe or not. Did not want to take a chance. Would love to win, if not I will buy. THANKS

katie ann said...

Man just to have something that reduces the volume of stuff in my bag when I leave work would be great. Such a cool idea!

Brianne said...

That would be perfect to keep in my purse for those, "Mommy! I'm thirsty!" moments.

Jennifer said...

What a great idea! I always end up buying bottled water when we travel, especially when my 3 year old is with us. I would love to be able to just tuck this into my knitting bag and then get water from the fountain!

Anonymous said...

Oh my, how cool are those! That would save a good bit of money on this end. Thanks for always entertaining us with your wonderful antics.

Sincerely,

Beth said...

I'd love these to attach to backpacks. My kids are always getting overheated.

I love that they colapse. I would love to have one.

Brooke said...

That's very cool.

KarenOjai said...

I would Love to have one of these bottles! My boys are always hiking and these sound like they'd be a good as the backpack bottles they use!

The SC Elwarts said...

This would be incredibly helpful for my kids' and husband's constant and ragged sports schedules. Strap the carabiner onto my purse and no more struggling to find sippy cups/water bottles. Great idea.

Allyson said...

Wow! Those are cool and i would love to have one!

Cheryl said...

Wow---these would be great for the kiddos at school!

queenmommy911 said...

That is too cool! I could fold up a whole set for the kids (all 6) and stick them in my purse and still have room for other stuff. Someone really had their thinking cap on with that design.

Snoopyfan said...

I would love to keep one of these in my bag so I can use it at work! Now I would have to clean out the bag so I could find it a little easier, but I think I could make it work! :)

Penny S. (CA) said...

These look like they would be worth trying!

Sunshine said...

Oh wow.....I drink a cup of coffee in the morning then water, all day, every day. This would save me a ton of money. Especially because I am a busy mom, student, and employee so I constantly set a bottle of water down, forget it, and have to go buy another one. I would love to be more environmentally friendly.

Mayberry Mom said...

I LOVE that it would save me cabinet space and it would travel to and from school with the kiddos easily.

Jennifer in Wisconsin said...

My first message didn't go through. I'd love to win some of these. I've noticed though that their website doesn't offer everything yet, are they that new?
Great idea on saving the earth.

Jennifer said...

what a FABULOUS idea! My kids will love these! Thanks for the write up, I'm going to have to go right over to the site and order me some!

Jessica&Kristofer Driggers said...

this is an awesome idea. i have a camelbak that i carry everyday but i hate how bulky it is. my husband drinks tons of bottled water and it drives me nuts. this would be perfect for him on the go.

Anjie said...

These are way cool! Do they stay rolled up when empty? I guess I could always use rubberbands to keep them rolled up and stored.
I'd love to try them, thanks for the chance to win!

Joy said...

Love it! Just in our little family of 2- we can easily go through 3 cases of bottled water a week.

Sue M. said...

This bottle is really cool! I love that it's so easy to store. I have VERY limited cabinet space so this would be perfect for me! They would also be great to keep in the car because you could just put them in the glove box and they'd be out of the way!

Missi said...

Those are AWESOME!! So do they fit in a cup holder in a car? I use a water bottle in the car for my son & I while waiting to pick up my daughter. I really like the part that they lay flat or roll up for easy storage, wouldn't roll out of the cabinet as easy that way. I'm sure the little clear cap would be lost in about 2.2 seconds around here though. Missi

Sarahtoo said...

Those are rockin' cool! I love the portability, and whoever's idea it was to take them to the airport? Brilliant! Pick me, pick me! :)

Kelsie said...

Wow! That would be great for my family, we have 5 people and are forever buying water bottles! Also that would be nice to take to my marching band practices so they don't take up so much room in my bag.

Betsey said...

They make so much sense! 60 million bottles dumped every day! That is disgusting!

Ashlee and Bill said...

What a great idea, I need 6~

Nadia said...

SO COOL!! I am a special needs teacher assistant and I'm always drinking water, but lugging around a large heavy(sometimes empty) bottle is a pain..how cool would it be to finish it and stick it in my pocket!!

Ruth said...

My kids play a ton of sports, so we have a full cabinet of water bottles. These would be so cool to use instead, to save the space!!!

Andrea said...

What a fantastic idea! Forget the cabinet... they could go in the drawer!

JoDee said...

that is so cool. I would take 1 to work or actually probably have to fight over it with my daughter who would want it for school

Diane B said...

I'd love to try one. I'm always looking for good suggestions to give my clients to make it easier and more accessible to stay hydrated.

PS. I'm a midwest transplant to California and I still can't get used to everyone calling pop "soda". I had to laugh to see the midwest verbage; it's another good reason to read your blog!

Stephanie said...

I would use this while running errands with my son.

Stephanie@eyeballgirl.com

Jill in MA said...

I love two things. I love that they take up very little space in the cabinet (I too am overrun with water bottles.) And I love that I can keep it rolled up in my purse and have a water bottle at a moment's notice. I'd love to win!!

The Summers 5 said...

We don't buy bottled water either and I have the cabinet that is overflowing with reuseable water bottles. We would love to try these out and get rid of all the other ones!!!!

Anonymous said...

Roll it up and store it small!! That is super. The idea of using it at airports - WOW - that is a terrific idea. I carry water with me all the time. Kathleen, Traverse City, MI

kuckoo said...

Well, that is just cool!

DawnH said...

What a great product. If I win, mine will be used for only water. I never trust I can get a non-glass container to completely lose the smell of juice or other beverages. The best part of these is the portability. I schlep water back and forth to work in Sigg bottles, but my purse isn't really big enough to do that on the weekends. Thanks for the review.

Jen said...

As a teacher whose water bottle will get stolen and played with if left out (I've got special, wonderful little kiddies), it'd be nice to be able to roll this up when I'm done!

Deirdrea said...

I'm always using and reusing bottles but one that would collapse THAT small into my purse would be FANTASTIC! Also.. I've been doing the empty water bottles through security thing for a while now. Me and my empty bottles and my box of crystal light packets. I HATE spending insane amounts of money on water that I can get at any water fountain for free.

Janet said...

Very cool! These would be perfect to keep in your purse when traveling, great for using at school and on field trips. I love the size and the fact that they look like they would weigh nothing when empty.

Jennifer said...

This would be great for the space saving factor alone. These might make good Christmas presents for the kids.

Anonymous said...

hahaha we probably could feed a 3rd world nation with all the money we spend on bottled water! (if we win i'll send you the shipping place thingy)

Lyuda said...

I am just thinking of all the places you can take them that would save money and space. I WANT one!! LOL

Carmen said...

WOW how cool are these?? This would definitely be better since they take up so little space, they would be perfect for when we go camping!

Bug said...

That's such a neat idea! I wish I had known about them before I went on a 3-week long trip with my toddler. Would have saved buying water at the airport and lugging around a sippy everyday that he never used but I had to carry- "just in case".

Anonymous said...

this would b awesome we go through 48 bottles 0f water a week in this house talk about saving some cash--sasha bctx

mommyrox said...

This would be great for my sons crazy hockey schedule. We are always forgetting the water bottle and buying the over priced one at the rink.

Missy said...

If I win one, it would go to the park everytime we go instead of the big bulky ones I have to remember to grab when we leave!

Dawn said...

How cool is that? I love them. Now I know I can get my 4 kids with their too many activities to drink plenty of water all while saving time, money & space! Thanks!

Rhianna said...

I work in a call center w/ vending machines and I drink 3 bottles a day. I cant just have any containers at my desk, it has to be spill proof. That would be perfect!

So cool!

Jen said...

Those water bottles are just plain awesome! I'm looking at those thinking of the cupboard space I'd save and the money....not to mention that they are dishwasher safe....I think you just made my day with the info alone. :)

sharalyns said...

I would love one of these! I like that it rolls up! It sounds fabulous!

healingtouch said...

I am a pediatric nurse and I ALWAYS have a bottled water at my desk...this would be perfect for me!!!!!

Karen said...

I like that you can wash it in the dishwasher!

Anonymous said...

The vapor bottles are kinda fun looking, but just to clarify - you can take an empty bottle through airport security, too. I usually do - I fill it at home, drink what I like until I get to security, dump it in the ladies room, and refill on the other side. You don't need a special "hideable" bottle.

Allenfamilyadventure said...

Because they fold up I might stick it in my purse and manage to actually make it home with it once it's empty.

Denise said...

What a great idea! Our cabinets are also overflowing with sippies and water bottles. Love the idea of a space saver and an earth saver at the same time :-)

Lee Ann said...

These are awesome! It would be so handy to just keep an empty one in my bag and be able to fill it when needed. Also, it would be great for my daughter to take to her six dance classes each week!

The Wizardess said...

With a 2 yr old & a 4 yr old, this would come in so handy at the park!! Even at Church!!

rankin1997 said...

We would use them when we are on the go, errands, parks, etc. Our cabinet looks similar to yours, tons of bottles taking up a bunch of space.

I take a bottle of water everywhere, so I'd love to have one of these!

Christina in Vegas said...

Neato! I'd love to have one rolled up in my backpack for when I'm thirsty at school!

Kari said...

ooh, those look cool! And I must admit, the fact that it's dishwasher safe is a huuuugggee plus for lazy me. :)

Jenn said...

I LOVE that they roll up so small! Perfect to store in your purse or tote!

Stacey said...

I would love to try these!

Gwen said...

Cool bottles - I could use something that seals tight to take to class so I wouldn't have to juggle purse and books and not quite spillproof container.

Bailey's Leaf said...

I have the teeniest tiniest purse and the bottle would actually fit inside all rolled up to wait patiently for me to use it.

Thank you!

Jen S said...

These would be great! Mom of twins that seems to always be running out of the house without sippy cups. Would be great to throw in my already huge bag and not take up so much space.

khill said...

We would SO make GREAT use of these! 3 kids, football, baseball, letterboxing, the van, school lunches, school water, work, backpacks, purses, bags, shopping, walking, traveling.....I think you get the idea.

Leah C said...

I want one but I'm too cheap to buy one! Instead, we reuse the water bottles that are probably leaching BPA into our systems. Like the first commenter, we too had a collapsable camping cup in the car, along with a jug of water. But you can't carry the cup around and take a swig anytime... bottle lids are your friend.

Jen K. said...

OMG! Love this idea. The kids bring water bottles to school everyday, so I have that cabinet that's loaded with bottles that fall out every time I open it. I'm a huge water drinker also and would love this bottle for my everyday use. In the car, working out, at the store....

Marly said...

I totally need a new water bottle. Mine has sprung a leak! This would be great because I could just roll them up and put them in the diaper bag.

Cheryl B said...

I would love to win one of these bottles - my oldest takes two water bottles a day to high school, so this would definitely help! Thanks Dawn, for an interesting product worth checking out!

momathome43kids said...

I'm a homeschooling mom, and my kids are drinking water all day. Problem is, they get a new glass everytime they refill because they can't remember which on is theirs. :( So this would be great, and I LOVE the face they fold up when empty. Pick me, Pick me, Pick me! Thanks, Cecilia

Amy said...

I would love to have one to keep in my purse... I have two kids and I can't list all the times/places I could use this!

Leah G said...

this looks awesome. I love having water in the car but hate dealing with bottles. I could fill it up as I leave then just roll it up and toss it in my bag.

julie said...

This is so cool! Great way to save on buying all that bottled water. Love that it's BPA free, too. Also, it would be great to stick one in my purse to have at all times!

Barb said...

My kids take water to school on a regular basis and while I try to get them to re-use the bottles it's sometimes hopeless. These look "cool enough" for them to want to reuse them. Thanks for the review. I'll have to check them out for sure.

Jen 'Moore' Than A Mom said...

Dawn-These are so neat, I have never seen anything like them. Besides using for myself and the kids for school I think my husband would like these for doing triathlons. He could easily drink it in the transitions and then put it in his pack. I'm sure it would be much less bulky than a typical bottle.
{jen at moorethanamom dot com}

Jen said...

Those bottles looks awesome! They would be perfect for every day use. I love the carbiner so that you won't lose them...just clip it onto your bag or belt loop. Plus storage is a huge problem for me. I have so many bottles and not enough space. They are perfect, would definitely fit into the limited storage space.

Anonymous said...

I would definitely take one in my book bag to work!

Jessi said...

Oh with 3 kids in tow this bottle would give endless use! Even sending one with my husband during the day so he stays away from the vending machine when he's thirsty!

Aries said...

these are seriously the coolest bottles ever! the only way i can get my 5yo daughter to drink water is out of a bottle. and i would much rather she drink water than sugary juices or kool-aid. but bottled water is a bit expensive for my tight budget. i will have to get us some of these so i can stop buying water :)

Michelle said...

Well this brought the commenters out of the woodwork, didn't it? ;)

I'd use these for Mister Man. He takes water to school each day for snack and for lunch. I bought him two reusable stainless bottles at the beginning of the year, but we're now down to one because one had paint start chipping away at the lip of it. These? No paint. And no BPA. And fingers crossed easier to open and close than the one we're using so it doesn't end up all over his backpack by the time he gets home from school.

jessica said...

I'm always looking for a better way to carry water. The lexon plastic bottles are nice, but after a while they shatter when your kids throw them on the ground over and over and over. :)

Sharyl Williams said...

I need one in every color! Because of course my bottle has to match my outfit!

Katie said...

Those are perfect! Those may be finding their way to our stockings this year, thanks for sharing!

Kimberly said...

I have been refilling bottles for years and its nice to see one that is BPA-free and rollable! Thanks for letting me know.

Stacey S. said...

Those are great, I have to have one ! I love water bottles (have a lot also). That really is a great idea how it takes up so much less room.

Julie B. said...

So, I'm just wondering how dorky I'll look with this attached to the long loopy thing that I hang my keys around my neck so I don't lose them? I am constantly thirsty. (yes, I am diabetic, but the thirst is because I'm also starting down that other wondrous journey of womanhood, and am constantly sweating like a clydsedale pulling 3 haywagons) This would just make it SO easy to have my cold water right where I won't forget where it is! Bouncing happily on "the girls". And for the first part of the day, I can freeze my water in there, and just tuck it in BETWEEN the girls for refreshment THAT way! I can just see it now... "umm... Mrs. B? Were you aware that you had frostbite on your breasts? Not judging, just wondering HOW in the world that happened?"

Cristen said...

This would be great to use in my diaper bag the one I have now is big no matter how much water is in it and the most I ever need at a time is 8 oz so I could get 2 bottles out of it that would be great!!!

Rachel E. said...

My favorite feature is that they're BPA free!

Kay said...

Those are awesome! I'm actually comtemplating on buying one :]

Laura G. said...

I love that the bottle rolls up for purse/pocket, and the kids will love the car. ring for backpacks. Fab invention! Would love one!
Laura

Raechel said...

I would **Love** a shot at winning one. I am all about little things we can do to lessen our impact on the planet (my big thing is reusable bags) that is easy. Baby steps for everyone.

Rebecca said...

What a wonderful idea!

Carrie said...

I still don't understand how the water from the dishwasher can get in there and clean it, but since I would just put water in it, it wouldn't be that hard to swish it out once in a while with soap. I would probably keep the bottle to use myself, and I'm pretty sure I love everything about it! I'm not sure I would use the carabiner thing, although if I let my kids have it, they would. Thanks for reviewing such a great product!

Donna A. said...

I like it! Sounds very cool.

Betsy M said...

What a great idea - love these!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

we carry bottled water everywhere for baby bottles ... and we drink it too this woudl be awesome i hate the plastics but will say we do reuse the bottles from the bottled water we buy.

Tinabee said...

These are incredible - what a great idea. We're taking a trip to Disney World in November, and these would be perfect for us to bring into the park. If I don't win, I'm in for a bunch!

Ashley said...

I like to take water bottles with me on trips but I don't room to store water bottles (seriously, my kitchen is TINY), so I always end up having to buy a case of bottled water. These would store easily in my kitchen and be available for the next big car ride!

Emily said...

I could really use these water bottles!! I also have a scary cabinet of miscellaneous water bottles! I can barely contain them! My son suffers from migraines, and he needs to stay hydrated at all times. This bottle would sure come in handy! Thanks!

Christy P said...

Those are really neat! I think they would be great for the kids as they head off to soccer & baseball practice.

Lisa said...

What I'd like most about them is they would take up waaaay less space in my match book sized kitchen!

Kirsten said...

THat would rock for sports and scouts and the million other things we're always on the go doing!

Kimberly and Grace said...

My daughter takes a bottle of water in her lunch every day. This could save me LOTS of money! I like that it can be put in the freezer. Usually I freeze some of the water so it keeps everything cold and she has cold water to drink at lunch.

Thanks for posting about it!

lesan said...

I love these bottles, so portable! I could tuck them into my purse or bag and have a convenient container for drinks for the kids!

Norma said...

Very cool. Would love to have for my collection!

Emily and Tom said...

What a fantastic idea! My kids take water bottles to school (no AC in their Elementary school...ugh) and these would be perfect!

Oooh, I want 1. And then maybe I'll buy more. And then maybe I won't risk injury or death when I open my cabinet door to try to find the Spider Man Water bottle!

I could take back the top shelf in my pantry that's loaded with water bottles! Love, love how they collapse!

my son and I have a long commute. I often will keep my old soda cups and refill with water - but they get gross, and bend, and he breaks the lids and then a 44 oz wave of water baptizes my car so I'd probably use these for our commute. great idea.

Anne said...

Those are so cool!!! I work part-time at a store and it gets so dry. I always have a water bottle with me. I also have three kids who are involved in sports and other activities that involve them needing a water bottle. This product would be perfect!!!

Pam said...

oooh, water on the go. But, I like the idea of rolling them up and perhaps leaving a few in the car for when kids are thirsty but there are no sippies in sight.

WOW- I would love to have one for my son. My son is in a portable at school and the water is not safe to drink, so he has to carry a water bottle to school everyday. We have been thru 2 already because his bookbag is bulging at the seams! Text books, library books, binders for this class, binders for that class, lunch boxes, and the water bottle. This would save him room in the overflowing bag! And he would have the "COOL" factor among his classmates. (3rd grade- 8 years old) How GREAT would that be?

I love this product! I have to use bottled water on my sidetable during the night, because my cats like to put their big fat heads in glasses. This would be ideal to have something I could use over and over again. It also would come in handy when I travel.

Tara M said...

they DO look super cool!

Cindi said...

This water bottles are so cool! I also have a million sippy cups and yes, they do spill out of the cupboard when I open it! And this would be great to take to aerobics class and then shove in my bag when it is empty.

dhaynes said...

With having to drink at least 64oz of fluid everyday this would be a tremendous help!

sounds great with two small kids they love spouts like that and who cares if they squise out a little extra

Amanda E said...

What an awesome "green" product! I really like the part about how little space they would take up to store or take along with you and fill up elsewhere - great idea for the airport! Thanks for sharing Dawn!

Aleta said...

so so cool - but how does the inside get clean in the dishwasher?

As a broke college student, I would love one of these water bottles to use instead of having the caf. rip me off every day with their over priced bottle water. Add to the fact that I can just roll it up when I'm done, it is perfect for the matchbox size rooms we live in :-)

What a great idea. I could take one to work in my purse, stop at the YMCA to do aerobics and fill it there with cold tap water.

Sonya said...

I LOVE the comment about using them on airline travel! I would buy them ALONE for that reason! I carry water with me EVERYDAY while I am at school--so do my kids! I am ALL for re-usable water bottles!

Sara said...

Those look really neat! I especially like the airport idea!

Anonymous said...

With four kids, this looks like a great water bottle (even for school backpacks).

Very cool idea; however, if airport security won't let me take a four-ounce tube of toothpaste through security, I doubt they will let me take a 16-ounce empty container! But, the idea of being able to store these bottles without taking up a ton of space is wonderful! I like to freeze a bit of water in my bottles, then add the tap water, and I have cold water for a bit longer.

Jen5253 said...

Wow! What a unique water bottle! I love that it folds up! This would be great to keep in my purse and pull out like a magician when my little girl complains of being thirsty.

TnT's Mom said...

Those are really neat. I am constantly filling the boys water bottles to take with us in the car, to soccer practice, etc. We too have many bottles lined up on the counter and piled in the cabinets. We just can't seem to find our favorite ones yet. Maybe this style bottle will be the one!

Anonymous said...

I would love to win this cool bottle! Me and my son drink water all the time, so this would really be great when he's whining for a drink!

Monica said...

I need one of these! I keep dropping the hard plastic bottles and breaking them, so I'm looking something a little more goof proof!

Karen G. said...

I always carry a bottle of water in my purse and it seems to weigh a ton. I just buy one bottle of water from a gas station and reuse it over and over again. Saves me money, but I think this would be alot more handy!!

Michelle in MO said...

These look and sound pretty cool! As a mom to 5, I can totally relate to being out and having to buy a drink for EVERYONE because ONE is thirsty! Thanks for the opportunity!

God bless!

Lindsay said...

These are too neat! I would keep one in my work bag so I always had one in case I forgot my usual drink.

Anonymous said...

I can so use these i have 2 nephews 1 neice they are always thirsty when we are out and i spend so much. My one nephew will only drink water and i dont like paying 150 per bottle. Please please choose me thanks so much

Kathy said...

Those bottles are great! We have a cabinet full of sports water bottles! My daughter just came home from school with another one today and I sighed, "oh great another one??" I would love to have a couple of these to take camping or for boy scout/girl scout outings!

Thanks,
Kathy

Kyra said...

These would be great to take to school. I always forget the bottle on my desk. I could stick this easily in my bag.

Michelle said...

That would be so handy for my Husbands lunch bag!

alayna said...

I totally sympathize with your assortment of sippy cups and bottles. In fact, I was just reminiscing how I stressed about getting my oldest off the sippy cup, and I'm totally content to have my youngest keep drinking from one until he's 32. Except for the whole space issue. And the fact that if he's doing that, chances are pretty good he'll still be living at home. I think I'll change that answer to 12. I think I'll give those vapur bottles a try except we buy bottled water and then wash those bottles out, because I am cheap. $30 for 4 does seem like a lot. We'll see!

Jkhb said...

I would love to pack these bottles in my kids lunch box! Thanks!

Rebecca Prochniak said...

These look amazing! I'd love to have one for work!

Linda Fleming said...

I love that these fold up and don't take up so much room to store. It sure would be better than buying all of those bottle of water. Living in Arizona, I usually freeze my water bottles, so these would be great.

Karla said...

I love that it folds flat and won't clutter up my cabinets. I also think it would be great to take on car trips and refill on the way.

Hope I win!!

Kikilia said...

These look great. My Pipsqueak would love to take one of these to school as her water bottle.

Liza said...

My twins started kindergarten this year and we were disappointed to find there was no recycling program within the school. In the past four weeks we have gotten the school started recycling. I love that these bottles are reusable, refillable, washable and collapsible!

lawnajo said...

This would work great to take to my son's soccer games and practices.

Christina said...

I am always looking for easy water bootles to use at work and at the gym!

Soukii said...

Oh my gosh, what a great idea. I have a basket under the sink full of water bottles-- they take up so much space!!!

Melissa said...

Anything I can fit into my purse without taking up more space is a winner. Thanks!

Mama said...

Oh, how cool. I hate lugging around the big "sports" type water bottles all the time, since, you know, the mom has to carry everything. Plus, if I let the 3 year old actually try to drink out of a water fountain he ends up soaking wet, shirt to shoes.

Nic said...

That is awesome. I definitely think we're going to have to get some of these. My son (Tristan) constantly nags me for something to drink, he drinks more than he pees, no doubt! This fits in my oh-so-small purse when its flat, can be unflattened whereever we are and Voila! Tristan is no longer nagging! How nice that would be?! It seems every morning before work I'm in such a rush I forget to grab a juice or something for him and we end up stopping to get Bug Juice- which he loves, but isn't so great for him. This is a lot easier. You mentioned personalization - what a great feauture. Though Tristan can't read - His 7 year old best person to argue with sister- definitely can. No more "That's my cup, NO that's MYYY cup!!! MOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!" conversations. Hallelujah Vapur makers!!!!!

Thanks for the review - greatly appreciate it, so excited!!

(It's funny how excited I get over water bottles that will give me at least 15 more minutes of peace in my life, eh?!)

Emiliy said...

I work in an airport so this would help me when I go to work (yes, they even make employees throw out bottled water and "liquid foods" for lunch i.e. soup and yogurt. lame i know...)

Anonymous said...

So cool!

Jana said...

I love these bottles!! I want one for each of my kids. I can totally relate to the avalanche of water paraphenalia falling out all over the floor!

jennifer hooper said...

OMG hands down we would use these at sporting events... Its so hot in crowded stadiums and the drinks are $7 a pop (including water) you cant bring in full drinks..but this would roll up and fill at the fountains! then maybe we could actaully afford tickets for all 6 of us to go to the same event :) plus with me in class from 5-10 2 nights a week, it sure would save me in bottled water money (and trash)
If I dont win i will be watching to catch a better deal on these!

Amy Flippin Blankenship said...

Here's how I would use these bottles...

BASEBALL, BASEBALL, BASEBALL...oh..and now that winter season is coming, we would use them for BASKETBALL, BASKETBALL, and HOCKEY!!!

Thanks for the review, Dawn. These are KEWL! :)

Shellie said...

That looks great, we are always needing water bottles!

Lee said...

These look great! I would love some for my kids :) Thanks for showing us something so cool.

candeloop said...

My kids go to a charter school with an environmental focus. They have to bring a reusable water bottle with them every day. The school even implemented a waste-free lunch program this year, so no more juice boxes either (other than the reusable plastic ones). You can imagine how my cabinet is overflowing with reusable plastic bottles. These look like a great idea!

Heather said...

I could use one!

TamraK said...

Our bottles always seem to get left at ball games. I could use another one.
