When you go hiking, one of the most important things that you will bring is fresh drinking water. Next time you go hiking, consider brining a portable water filter instead. You could be saving backpack weight and enjoying the cleanest water available.
Make your backpack lighter
To really enjoy hiking, you must put yourself as light as possible. You do not want a heavy backpack weighs and forcing you to take extra breaks. With a light backpack, you can cover more distance with less tension on your muscles.
A portable water filter can weigh a 250 grams. It is only a quarter the weight of a bottle of water from one liter. Imagine losing this extra weight of your bag. We will feel like you have ten years younger with your extra stamina.

Enjoy drinking water
If you have ever tasted fresh mountain stream water, you know it's a part of the cleanest water you can get. Then pour this pure water into a portable water filter and it's really the cleanest water. There is minimal pollution and no additional additive – just clean, fresh drinking water.
Even pure mountain water can contain dangerous bacteria and pathogens such as typhoid, dysentery, cholera, colibacillosis, amoebate dysentery protozoa, cryptospardium, cysts, mushrooms, parasites, spores and La Giardia.
