11 Best Travel Water Purifiers of 2022

Written by Kyle Kroeger

Are you planning to travel around the world? If yes, a travel water purifier is a must for your health. Here is a list of some of the best options to try.

Are you backpacking across Europe?

Or, are you planning a romantic getaway to Paris? In all cases, you need to be careful about water quality.

On the one hand, most countries worldwide have poor water quality. On the other hand, you’ll find plenty of sketchy brands selling ‘bottled water’ that is repackaged tap water. In both cases, it’s a health hazard.

Even if you’re buying original purified water from a known brand, it can still get expensive.

Why not make a one-time investment instead?

In this guide, I’ll discuss the best water filters for traveling to help you select a travel water purifier for your next vacation.

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
