Not all the water sources in the backcountry need to be treated or filtered, but it’s not always easy to tell the difference with the naked eye.
We used to carry a heavy gravity feed system that worked well for shorter hikes where we would set up a base camp. When we started hiking loops and thru-hikes we needed to come up with something lightweight and convenient. Our solution was to use individual in-line filters from Sawyer Products.
In this video we share with you our families strategy for water filtration for camping, backpacking, or hiking. This is how we do it, and a a few things to watch out for.
Thanks for watching.
