CNOC Vecto 2L Review: Makes Collecting and Filtering Water Easy!
For beginner backpackers, dialing in your water filtration system is something that can take time. When I first discovered the Sawyer Squeeze, I was blown away at how quick and easy filtering water can be.
The Sawyer Squeeze filtration system comes with its own water pouch to collect, carry and filter water. I began my AT thru-hike using Sawyer’s bag, and while it definitely got the job done, it was constantly leaking and found myself cycling between several bags within the first 400 miles.
I decided I wanted a more durable, longer lasting water container, but I didn’t know of any other options. That was until I ran into several hikers using a CNOC Vecto 2L water container. I watched as they collected water in a matter of seconds, while it took me much longer with a Sawyer or Platypus bag.
Around 1,500 miles into my AT thru-hike, I decided to make the switch to the CNOC Vecto 2L … and I quickly began questioning why I hadn’t done so sooner.
I was amazed at how quickly I was able to collect 2L of water thanks to the Vecto’s dual opening design, with a wide mouth on one end, and a smaller, water filter-compatible opening on the other. Along with its lightweight yet durable build, this water container is the best on the market in my opinion.
