Our filtration gurus have bought and tested 70+ of the best backpacking water filters over the last 11 years. This 2021 review covers 23 of the market's latest and greatest. Taking each with us on extensive adventures, they've seen the likes of sailing adventures North of Sweden, climbing trips to Peru, running expeditions across the USA, and fastpacking adventures in Iceland. We assess portability and ease of backcountry maintenance in the field, while also investigating critical aspects like what each model removes from water and how long it takes to get a potable liter of water. Using field and objective in-house tests we offer you our insights and recommendations for any backcountry traveler.
