A compact and reliable water filter that purifies about a liter of water per minute. Made by Katadyn - this here is Swiss quality.

A plastic shell with active charcoal innards through which you pump the water and it comes out clean. Filters by 0,2 micron, which means 99,999 % of bacteria and protozoa won't get through, but to kill viruses you should use purification tablets. Also neutralizes any nasty flavors to some extent. You put the other tube into the water source and the other in your bottle or cup or whatever, then you pump it through the filter. Use the pre-filter to sort out larger debris in murky water. Very simple. Works with many hydration bladders too, for example, CamelBak and Source.

The following table shows the most common pathogens that make drinking water risky. The order is from largest to smallest: filters are rarely able to remove viruses from water, so it's recommended to use purification tablets after filtering for the best effect.

The best filter i ever had, if you don't have it, you're doing it wrong.
Remember to give it a 1-2 liters try at home before going out, it will clean the charcoal excess in the system.

If it matters to you, the filter may not be the full black version.
I got the semi-transparent one, which is still dark and discreet enough, and it filters water the same way, u boogalarper.
