My husband was most excited about it because he will be the one using it the most. He served proudly with the USMC and is an avid hunter, camper, and prepper. He has been reading all about the canteen filter over at the Clearly Filtered website and was excited to try it out. As soon as he received it, he immediately took it down to the creek that runs behind our house.
Once there, he filled the canteen, and took a drink. He said it tasted great. No off taste. It tasted like nice, clean drinking water.
Here is a picture of the creek water after going through the canteen filter. Is it not crystal clear?
It is definitely going in our bug-out-bag and will go with us whenever we go camping too. As an added bonus, this canteen will fit in my husband's military canteen pouch & cup.
Each filter can filter up to 100 gallons of outdoor type water. It purifies and filters out the nastiest stuff. In fact, it removes 99.99% of the following: Chlorine, Bacteria, Giardia, E Coli, Salmonella; and 97.5% of lead. It is priced right under $35 so with it filtering 100 gallons, you are paying around 35 cents a gallon. Isn't that worth the piece of mind of having safe drinking water no matter where you are at? We think so!
Be sure to visit their website and see all the different kinds of filters they have and drop by on Facebook and give their page a like too. Tell them "Countrified Hicks" sent ya. ;-)
I was provided this product for free but the opinions are my own.
