Best Portable Water Filters On The Market

Portable water filters are a must if you are someone who likes to travel a lot and live off the grid.

But while they are simple to use and carry around, portable water filters must also be trustworthy and efficient so you can rest assured that you are drinking the cleanest water possible on your way to exploring and making memories.

Unfortunately, there are many options on the market and it can be really difficult to tell which one is the best for you especially since they are usually quite an investment so you can’t just purchase a number of them just to test them out and see which one is the most efficient.

With that being said, it’s best to be well informed before buying a portable water filter so this guide aims to take you through all the usual features and what you should look out for before owning your own portable water filter.

First of all, always pick based on your own needs and preferences when it comes to the amount of water you want filtered and the kind of substances you think might be in it.

Unlike chemical filters, portable ones can use UV light or physical filters to clean your water.

Portable water filters should also be useful in a variety of situations and this guide will also provide you with an extensive list of some of the best on the market and what they have to offer, taking all the guesswork out of it!

But before that, here are some of the things you need to pay attention to before getting one.

First of all, one of the most important factors is the intended use of the product. For instance, if you need one for activities such as hiking or camping, there is no doubt that your main concern should be filtering any bacteria and sediment from your drinking water.

If you are traveling to another country, on the other hand, you should focus more on a portable water filter that can better target bacteria and viruses.

Other things to consider are the filter’s type, capacity, durability, size and how easy it is to use!
