Water Treatment Drops

rated 3 of 5 stars Convenient, light, fast enough. But how antiseptic is it? I have used these drops for several years, and I have never gotten sick in the wild. But that does not prove they actually kill germs; I might simply have been lucky.  Knowing that, I'm worried about the absence of any claim by Aquamira that they are effective against germs —bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Before purchasing my second kit, I threw away the packaging from my first purchase. This time, I read the packaging carefully. There… Full review

Frontier Pro Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight water filter that can be used with virtually any disposable or Platypus brand small mouth bottles. I have owned this product for over a year and have used this filter on almost all of my backpacking trips. I have used this filter on some questionable water sources and so far so good.   The microfilter removes 99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia per the manufacturer.  The filter also uses coconut shell carbon to improve the taste of the water. I have used this filter on a gravity setup… Full review

Water Treatment Drops

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for lightweight with no taste. I started using the pump filters and after many years went looking for something lighter and went to the Steripen which is great.

Then I found these drops and several of my hiking friends now use them. I carry 3-4 little pre-made (that morning) capsules that are ready to drop into my coke… Full review

Water Bottle and Filter

rated 0.5 of 5 stars This system is poor!! In the third time in action the "filter" is broken and floating in the water. The flow is very slow. Don't buy this. Full review

Water Purifier Tablets

rated 4 of 5 stars Way back when I hiked in the White Mountains I didn't treat the water at all. These days I wouldn't think of not treating and I haven't felt like putting out the $75+ dollars for a water filter.  I always carry these tablets, even on day hikes. They weigh nothing and are an easy safety net in case I get stranded. On backpacks nowadays I am always with a larger group so, should I not be able to wait for the four hours, I could always borrow someone's filter. Haven't had to do that yet.  I don't… Full review
