User Review: Aquamira Water Treatment Drops
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $12
Great for lightweight with no taste.
- Lightest with no aftertaste
- A slight wait to drink time
I started using the pump filters and after many years went looking for something lighter and went to the Steripen which is great. That however you have to rely on batteries. Then it was the tablets for the absolute lightest thing out there, but ugh the taste was awful and you had a 30 minute wait time.
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 water bottle and have never had any leaks. Sure you need to wait 20 minutes, but the weight savings is well worth it. The next best thing to the weight savings has to be the no aftertaste to these drops.
Have now been using this method for over three years and still believe that they are the best thing you could be carrying for weight, easy to use, and effectiveness.
