Whether you're backpacking mountain trails or getting away from the city on a wild camping trip, the question of clean drinking water is always foremost. The SweetWater Microfilter from MSR gives you a fast and reliable way to filter drinking water for outdoor adventures.
The lightweight design is compact and stores in a pack with a long lasting construction. It features an easy to use pump design able to filter up to 1 litre per minute with 750 litres per filter. Designed for the minimalist traveller and trekker the SweetWater Microfilter system provides convenience, portability and a long lifespan per filter.
The ideal water treatment option for light to moderate use, the SweetWater filters out water-borne bacteria, protozoa, particulates (sediment, silt), and toxins such as chemicals and heavy metals. It does not offer effective protection against viruses. A simple mechanical design uses no batteries or chemicals and lets you brush clean the filter when clogged to restore flow.
From alpine treks to river trips, and even part of a home disaster kit, the SweetWater Microfilter from MSR offers peace of mind in getting a supply of safe, clean and fresh tasting drinking water wherever you go.
