Filter screws onto any used soda bottle or Platypus hydration bladder with 28 mm threads. Protective cap protects bite value from contamination. Polyester, replaceable pre-filter removes sediment, extending the life of the filter. Can be configured as a hands-free gravity filter. Miraguard suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold, and mildew in the filter between outings.
Cons: Bite valve can be a little hard on the jaw. Flow rates for the gravity filter configuration vary by filter due to manufacturing differences. Make sure to test at home first.
