Best water purifiers for camping UK 2023
Clean and fresh filtered water when you’re out in the back country is possible - you just need a safe, reliable water purifier or filtration system. Here’s the ones you can count onn
When you’re out wild camping or taking an adventure into the backcountry, there’s little more important than considering how you’re getting the right amount of hydration.
Keeping topped up with good, clean, fresh drinking water is of paramount importance, especially if you’re spending days away.
Luckily, advancements in filtration technology means there are a number of different water purification options on the market for backcountry and wild campers these days - we’ve taken a look at a selection here.
In our mind, there are three very important buying judgments to make when purchasing a good filtration system.
Firstly, there’s the purification technology (the better quality this is, the bigger the impact on the price), secondly there’s weight and portability and thirdly there’s how easy they are to use, fill up and operate. We’ll be looking at these individual elements.
The last thing to say before we go into the products is that there are a lot of options on the market! It might take a little bit of research and asking questions to find the right one for you.
It’s also worth remembering that this is a buying guide only - although most of these products were tested we can not totally 100% guarantee their effectiveness and we’d recommend and suggest that if you’re anticipating using one of these products in the wild, you consult a doctor or an expert prior to use.
