Outback Water Filtration System

rated 5 of 5 stars The water bottle itself works pretty well, but throw in a good filter, and you have yourself a great, lightweight water bottle/filter for use in the backcountry. I purchased one of these bottles back in the late 1990s. I don't remember for sure if it was the Bota brand, or not, but I do know that it is the same drop-in cartridge filter and has worked wonderfully. I've used it on multiple backpacking trips with friends over the years. A couple of my friends were so impressed by it, that they went… Full review

Outback Water Filtration System

rated 5 of 5 stars This filter is great and cheap. I recommend filtering the water into a water bottle and drinking from the bottle. The Bota does get a little hard to squeeze, but other than that it works great and is super easy to use. I have had to use it in water that was highly suspect and had no problems. I am a true believer in this filter. It is a little work to filter a 16 oz bottle and will take a little time to do; however, it is much easier than trying to drink from the bota by squeezing.

Outback Water Filtration System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I chose the Bota because it appeared to be an economical and simple method of providing potable water from suspect sources. We first tried it out 3 years ago on an extended hike in the Porcupines (Michigan). The filter worked great. Although my wife was skeptical at first, she became a believer after tasting the clean water (and living to tell about it). The half star deduction relates to the poorly designed plastic cap and the fact that it does require some hand/forearm strength to squeeze the… Full review
