This is a review of the Aquamira Frontier Pro Water Filter from ReadyPro.org . First impressions - this is a pretty cool filter. Its light weight, compact, easy to use and no moving parts. There are no moving parts like a pump or handle to stop working or break.
Unlike a regular filter, where the water is pumped from the stream into a container, with the Aquamira Frontier Pro Water Filter, the container is filled with water from the stream or lake, and then filtered as you drink it. The filter uses a small "button" looking filter that does not remove viruses and may not be effective on removing all types of bacteria. If extra treatment is needed use some Aquamira Water Purifier Tablets .
The filter was easy to use. You just get close to the water, insert the straw and suck the water up. The nipple that fits into the mouth is protected with a plastic cover. One unit is supposed to filter up to 20 gallons of water and be able to remove 99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
One of the drawbacks to the filter, you might get your knees wet from kneeling next to the stream. But oh well, its just one of those things about being out in the woods.
The filter in the video as received from ReadyPro, who deals in all kinds of hiking, camping and other survival gear items.
