Also, the Flux does look more durable, but it is also 2-3x heavier per unit of volume held. More importantly for me though is the fact that it’s only holds 1 liter. That’s a real deal breaker, since filling the water bag and screwing on the filtering system to it is one of the major pains when filtering. I try to minimize the amount of times I have to fill the dirty water bag at each water source, and the Flux would definitely not align with this mindset. Nice to know it exists though!The Life Venture Tritan is a robust, lightweight and impact-resistant drinking bottle which makes retaining liquids on the move easy and enjoyable.

The Vecto water bag has a very flexible and lightweight feel to it, and one might reasonably wonder whether it can stand up to the rigors of trail life. I’ve put mine through heavy use in rugged environments, sometimes strapped to my bike without much protection, and I’ve found it to be pretty durable. Hard to fill.Pretty similar to Sawyer Squeeze, the bottle does not expand when underwater, so there’s not a lot of water going in when you push the bag underwater. Unless you can always find some source of water pouring downwards, you’ll freeze your hands like I did many times using it. I quite like having only one entry point in my water bags and I want that point to be decently sized. The 42mm openings of the Hydrapak Seeker bags fit the bill. It’s just much easier for me to hold the bag up by the mouth, pour dirty water in with my scoop. Set the scoop down once it’s full, and with that hand just immediately attach the water filter onto it.Great compatibility with Sawyer Squeeze.Tested with a lot of pressure and not a single drop seemed to get through any other part than the filter itself. This means it’s safer as you know no dirty water mixed in with your filtered water. The CNOC Vecto is a “dirty bag” that turns Sawyer Squeeze / Mini / Micro, Katadyn BeFree, and other squeeze-style hollow fiber water filters into hands-free gravity filters. I am using it on a Sawyer water filter. It is a much better design and better materials than the standard bag

A lightweight and collapsible water bottle that has the ability to attach to pretty much any water filter on the market. Secure cap attached to the bag.I love the small bit that holds the cap attached to the bag. I do have a habit of losing small pieces like caps from my bottles. Some leakage.Even though I have not found it myself, I have seen numerous reports of users complaining they did get some leakage when using the bags with the Sawyer Squeeze filter. This would increase the risk of getting the dirty water mixed with your filtered one.Now I know some people in forums say, that if you treat the bags well, they’ll hold. And that may be true. But these small accidents will happen and it can potentially end the whole trip. That’s not something I am willing to accept. The main risks of the bags popping If you use a Sawyer water filter, the Vecto is a MUCH better replacement for the squeeze pouches it came with.
