Water generosity and the 3L Vecto

Water generosity and the 3L Vecto

Before the 3L Vecto was available to the public, Nick Ferry was invited to give it a try. He rigged up two innovative methods of using the 3L Vecto during his two testing trips. One was to turn his 3L Vecto into a shower, the other was to use a trowel to guide water from a very low stream into the wide-mouth opening. Nick's impressions I took the 3L Vecto on two backpacking trips, totaling 15 days. My first impression was how durable the Vecto is.

Our factory made a mistake, so you get a better deal!

TL;DR: We have a batch of Vectos that have the same amazing durability as earlier Vectos, but only fit the HydroBlu filters. We're selling these in a great bundle with the Versa Flow filter for $45. If you haven't noticed yet, we are out of Vectos and that is because our factory in China made a slight mistake. In the process of trying to make the Vecto thread spout stiffer, the injection engineer forgot to calculate shrinkage due to cooling. But, if all this means nothing to you, here is a bit of background: When looking into making the Vecto, we chose...
