When you are enjoying the outdoors, clean water is an important ingredient to an enjoyable time. Whether you are camping, hunting or hiking, having access to clean water for drinking, cooking and sanitation is imperative. Most people bring water with them adding weight and bulk to your gear. While we recommend taking some water with you, bringing a BugOut® Water Filter with you will give you capacity to create potable water out of any water source. What a relief!
BugOut® Water Filters are silver impregnated which makes them ideal for this use. The silver prevents bacterial growth between uses. In other words, you can use the filter for a week, rinse and air dry the filter, and use again at some point in the future without worry of bacterial growth. Other filters do not have a way to prevent bacterial growth and the filter itself will contaminate the very water you are filtering to become clean.
BugOut® Water Filters can be cleaned up to 100 times with a soft brush or damp cloth. The pre-filter sock can be cleaned as often as necessary. No backwashing required! Please see our FAQ page for more details on filter efficacy.
