Camping and hiking are great ways to get away from civilization and experience some self-reliance. You can stretch your legs, breathe the clear air, and puzzle out the little challenges nature throws at you. One of the challenges of being away from civilization is finding potable drinking water. Most camping locations offer clean water for drinking and cooking, but if you choose to go for a long hike or set up camp far away from the nearest clean water source, you might find yourself needing some extra water.
Many rivers, lakes or creeks could appear clean enough to drink, but you shouldn’t risk getting sick by drinking contaminated water. Enter the RapidPure Pioneer. RapidPure filtration reduces more contaminates than any other recreational filter. The whole RapidPure product line of water filtration products offer 99.9999% of bacteria and virus reduction. In addition, the RapidPure captures 99.998% of Cryptosporidium which is known to cause diarrhea and other digestive issues. This simply means the water you drink from a RapidPure filter is going to be completely safe for anyone to drink.
Another great feature is the weight. Coming in at less than two ounces, the RapidPure Pioneer is a great all around filter for camping and hiking. The whole RapidPure Pioneer kit comes with the filter, filter case, a straw, and a blue carrying bag. We’ve tried water purification systems here at 50 Campfires, and none have produced better tasting water more quickly than RapidPure.
