I've been using platypus water bottles backpacking for the past couple years and got a couple vapur bottles to test out the last drop. I've taken them on about 4 trips so far (hooray for summer!) and they are much better for drinking out of than my other collapsible water bottles. Very lightweight and seem pretty durable. I put 2 full ones in a pack on just a dayhike and didn't have any issues with leaking despite climbing, jumping, and crawling through a streambed. My only issue with these is when I fill them backpacking it is hard to see if I have any debris in them. I would recommend using a filter for filling them or making sure you know your water source is free of insects. Great water bottles so far!
As gaknak said, they do take a bit to dry out but I've found that to be true of my platypus bottles as well. I just leave them standing in a windowsill uncapped to try to speed things up.
