Adventure Travel: Filtered water bottle

Dear Travel Guru,

My husband and I love adventure vacations. We sail, and mountain bike and hike. We love going on longer vacations and seeing new things each year.

Because we travel so much, we have gotten really good at packing as light as possible, reading subway maps in all different countries, and getting through security at the airports in record time...But the thing that gets us more than anything is water. Sometime we travel in places where we need to drink the water, but sometimes it is hard to trust it.

When we hike, we carry our own water, but this is harder when we go on an international trip, or in some parts of the county where water is not as clean. Can you recommend a water filter that we could easily carry with us so that we don't have to worry about the water quality when we travel?

Dear Ann,

It sounds like you lead quite an adventurous life! Please check out our adventure gear on the website.

For less than $25, you can have that peace of mind, and pure fresh drinking water any time you want.

We offer the the Aquamira® filter bottle -- a simple, convenient way to get clean water when hiking or traveling, which I think is perfect for you. All you need to do is fill the bottle, insert the filter and drink.

This nifty and affordable filtered water bottle removes contaminants down to 2 microns, including Giardia, Cryptosporidium and E.Coli. The filter cartridge is refillable and treats up to 50 gallons of water with the Miraguard™ Antimicrobial technology-- suppressing the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold and mildew within the filter media... (yuck!)

So this filter/bottle combo will elimination of 99.9% of harmful giardia, cryptosporidium and other pathogens, and the thick-walled porous plastic filter provides greater effectiveness and longer life than common thin-walled filters. The activated carbon reduces waterborne chemicals and improves taste.

The easy-to- carry water bottle holds a generous 22 oz and is a standard size that fits into bicycles holders for that mountain bike trip. The bottle even has a protective mouthpiece to keep airborne contaminants from attaching themselves.

In short -- this is the water bottle for you!

Any other questions? Just me me know.

Happy Trails!
