Looks like it is similar to the Sawyer mini but its INSIDE the pouch instead of attached to the mouthpiece.

There is only 1 review on the item here at Trailspace.

Thoughts? Anyone see any serious advantages/disadvantages for a solo hiker with this product when compared to other systems?

Only 500L from the VAPUR.

Sawyer Squeeze? They guarantee a million gallons.

Even if Sawyer's off by a few, they're still coming out ahead, there.

This may not be a deal-breaker for a weekend warrior, but I doubt there're thru-hikers out there who'd want to keep swapping out filters.

Is the VAPUR threaded like the SS is? Can the VAPUR can fit in any old, disposable water bottle like the SS can? 

I really don't see what you can do with this that gives it a significant advantage over a Sawyer. And if it comes down to size and weight, their new Mini fixes both those problems.
