The good news is that there’s plenty of options on the market now, so no matter how specific your need or preference there’s probably a perfect water filter for you. The bad news is that there are so many options it can be hard to sift through them all to find that best portable water filter for you. So we made a list of some of the best options out there, helping you focus on what’s important – spending more time doing what you love and less time figuring out how to shop for the best water filters.
