Water & hydration

IMG_0550Reducing the amount of waste I leave behind and at the same time having an endless supply of clean drinking water is a must. I  looked into filter systems without being able to make up my mind.  In the end some friends gave me the perfect gift (thanks Andy and Libby) a bottle with its own filter made by Drinksafe, They tested it extensively in the field in India and never had a problem . It is a brilliant piece of kit,  each light filter will clean 1600lt of water: AMAZING!   I contacted   Drinksafe and they sent me a tap adaptor with which I will be able to fill all my water bottles with clean drinking water.

  1. This is really helpful – I haven’t got this sorted yet, but was erring towards the MSR mini works filter – far more expensive and doesn’t look as well tested as this product. Thanks.
