This lightweight and compact fill-and-squeeze water filter is perfect to stash in a hiking or mountain biking pack for quick and easy streamside hydration. Also makes a good emergency backup if a quick outdoor outing turns into an unplanned all-day or overnight epic. It provides plenty of filtration capacity for longer backpacking or bikepacking trips too. Fill the reservoir with untreated water and squeeze to filter fresh water into a Platypus bottle or reservoir. The system weighs just 3.3 oz., filters up to three liters per minute, and can be easily cleaned by backflushing. MSRP: $49.95.
