The Best Water Filters and Purifiers for Backpacking of 2020 from Treeline Review

WE RESEARCHED THE BEST WATER FILTERS AND AGGREGATED THAT DATA. HERE'S OUR FINDINGS.

After checking dozens of review sites and hundreds of customer reviews - and considering our own experiences - we put together a list of stand-out water filters for backpacking. If you’re hiking solo or on a trip where each person takes care of their own water, we think the Sawyer Squeeze has the speed-to-weight ratio that works best for most folks. Got a group to care for? We like the Platypus GravityWorks, which can filter four liters in four minutes with minimal fuss. For removing viruses, the upgrade-pick MSR Guardian filters out viruses and cleans itself with the press of a hand-pump.

Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.

I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
