The 'Survivor' Backpackinglight
looks like an up-rated bike bottle and weighs only 180grms. There are other systems available from the same makers Drinksafe-systems
at what seems very reasonable prices. Apparently, these are 'professional' systems used by military, the UN and other organisations across the world.
I plan to use mine during wild camping, or from any suspect water supply I come across, including the odd hotel stay. It ought to pay for itself pretty quickly. The water is as sweet as any I've tasted - I thought better than my filter jug at home. I also like the fact that the one I have doesn't look special - just a drinking bottle. Could be stuffed in a pocket or a bag mesh if I go walkabouts. Very quick and easy - a kid could use it.
Hope this is useful. Cheers.
I've a feeling I'm not in Kansas anymore.
