User Review: Bota of Boulder Outback Water Filtration System
Source: received for testing via the Trailspace Review Corps (Sample provided by Bota for testing and review)
Weight: 4.7 oz.
Dimensions: 3 x 9.5 inches
Filter: activated carbon
Bottle capacity: 22 oz.
Capacity with filter: 20 oz.
Expected lifetime: 40 gallons (230 refills)
(Note: The Bota and Aquamira bottles use the exact same bottle, spout, and cap.) Lexan flip cap protects spout from contaminants. Semi-transparent bottle lets you see how much water remains. Replacement filter is available.
The Bota Outback has the same weaknesses as the Aquamira Water Bottle Filter. Additionally, organic contaminants that have been filtered out by activated carbon filters provide an excellent food source for bacterial growth, particularly when the filter is not used for a long time.
