How the Vesica and the Buc Can Help You Ditch Single Use Plastics
The Vesica was designed to replace the beloved smart water bottle. Like a plastic water bottle, it is compatible with a Sawyer filter, tall and thin to fit in pack side pockets, and lightweight. But it has a few pros smart plastic bottles don’t have:
- Can squish down when not in use so it takes up less space in your pack.
- Can use it to squeeze filter without the bottle breaking down over time.
- Can be used in a gravity filter set up without the need to “burp” the bottle.
- Will not end up in a landfill in a few months.
The Buc was designed to replace the omnipresent Ziploc bag - specifically their use in backpacking cooking. The Buc is more durable than a Ziploc, seals more securely than a Ziploc, and, of course, is infinitely more reusable than a Ziploc. It is perfect for storing an all day cold soak in your pack or for cooking your hot dinner in at night.
