This simple, pump-free, gravity fed water filter from Platypus is the Bike Hermit's favorite of the new crop of lightweight water filtration systems. The wide-mouthed, ziptop water reservoir makes collecting water easy no matter what the source and the two-part Universal Bottle/Hose Adaptor directs clean water directly into your screw-top water bottle, dromedary or hydration bladder. The threaded Bottle Adaptor fits water bottles from Platypus, Nalgene, MSR, Camelbak, Sigg, Kleen Kanteen and others. The adaptor does not fit standard bicycle water bottles but any container can be filled directly from the outflow hose.
Fill the reservoir from your water source, hang the reservoir on a convenient tree limb or other object, sit back and contemplate the wonders of the universe while you let gravity go to work. The Hollow Fiber filter eliminates 99.9999% of Bacteria and 99.9% of Protozoa with a flow rate of 1.5 liters per minute. The entire 2 liter (70oz) reservoir can be converted to clean water in as little as 90 seconds! The filter can also be backflushed for in-field cleaning with any squeezeable bottle or hydration system that can be securely attached via the Universal Adaptor.
Need a way to carry all that clean water? Our MSR Dromedary is the perfect container.
