7 Water Bottles with a Filter for Travel

Planning on taking the adventure of a lifetime? As you pack for your trip, remember that the water in even highly developed countries can be somewhat questionable. No matter where you’re going, it’s smart to bring along a quality water bottle with a filter so you can have safe, clean drinking water wherever you go.

Whether you plan on taking hiking or biking excursions on your trip, or you’re simply concerned about the water quality at your destination, here are seven quality water bottles that give you easy access to clean drinking water while you’re on the go.

4. Sawyer Products SP140 Personal Water Bottle

When you’re visiting a country with generally unsafe tap water, the Sawyer Products SP140 Personal Water Bottle is a great option for water filtration. It’s also handy to have if you’ll be hiking, camping, biking or otherwise touring an area with abundant natural water sources. It filters all bacteria, protozoa and particulates. One of the best parts about this particular bottle is its filter, which can easily be cleaned with an included syringe filter cleaner. It’s possible to reuse the filter indefinitely, which saves you money and hassle.

The main drawback to this model is that it doesn’t filter out heavy metals or chemicals. Compared to other bottles, its filter is much less effective. Another con is the drinking straw. You’ll always have to drink through the straw, which is impossible to clean. While you won’t have to replace the filter often—or, in some cases, at all—you’ll have to replace the straw regularly.

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
