2014 Gear Of The Year: GRAYL Quest Filtration Cup
Lets face the facts – water has shaped our landscapes and nearly every civilization. Water is vital to all life on this planet and we need it to survive. Still though, there are many people who do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. And added chemicals like chlorine, trace amounts of arsenic and lead are still found in regular tap water. The GRAYL Water Filtration Cup was born after a dozen engineers said it couldn’t be done. GRAYL lets you take control of your water quality while reducing reliance on plastic water bottles.
We know what you’re thinking, there are a million different water filtration devices that all seem to all be claiming the same thing. Yes, we’ll give you that. There are plenty available, but let us pose a question, is there truly a water filtration product that can be used on all occasions? There is now.
GRAYL designed their water filtration cup around the idea of universal use. Maybe you need water from the tap, on the trail or when traveling internationally? GRAYL’s interchangeable filters provide varying levels of protection with Tap, Trail and Travel to protect from the different challenges each situation offers. The unique lid system has a pressure release valve that opens and locks with just a simple push on the lid. The GRAYL is simple, which is a huge plus to us. To filter your water, simply press the inner cup into the outer cup for 16 ounces of safe, great tasting water on the go in only 7 seconds. It’s basically a French press for your water. You will not find a product that filters water as fast with the level of protection from harsh chemicals commonly found in water. So go ahead, give it a try – we think you’ll be impressed.
