In my constant search to photograph backcountry wildlife, I rely so much on the backpacking and outdoor gear that I carry with me. Having clean, drinkable water is crucial to any type of outdoor recreation, but it’s something we don’t think about and take for granted. In this week’s video I will discuss filtering water in the backcountry, the different types of water filters you have available to use, the pros and cons of each type and some tips to help ensure you have safe, drinkable water in the backcountry.
Many people carry large amounts of water with them on their nature outings. This is great, but it can also add a lot of weight to your pack and once you’re out, you’re out. There are many benefits to using water filters, knowing what exactly they’re filtering and being familiar with the water sources in the area you’re exploring or passing through. I’ll cover all of this information in this video.
If you’re interested in what other backpacking gear I use, check out my other video where I review my sleep system (link below), and stay tuned in the coming weeks as I upload additional videos revolving around other backpacking gear that I regularly use.
Thanks so much for following along, I appreciate all the kind words and honest feedback. Have a wonderful week, and we’ll see you next Sunday!
