Platypus Quickdraw Microfilter

Transform your backcountry filtration experience with the versatile Platypus QuickDraw Filter. Utilize advanced hollow fibre technology for speedy filtration (3 litres per minute) without sacrificing portability and weight (2.4 oz). With the flexibility to pair with a variety of bottles and reservoirs thanks to its new ConnectCap™, you can personalize your filter system to your liking (Please refer to images for reference). Secure the dirty side I/O (inner/outer) threads onto QuickDraw reservoirs or narrow-mouth bottles like smartwater® and select Platypus models. On the clean side, choose between the DrinkCap for effortless drinking and pouring, or the ConnectCap™ that connects to narrow-mouth bottles. This filter prioritizes safety, ease of use, and longevity. With two simple cleaning methods - shake-to-clean and backflushing - you can enjoy fast filtration throughout your journey. The Integrity Check process allows you to ensure that your filter is still effectively purifying water.

Dirty Side: The dirty side of the QuickDraw features inside/outside (I/O) threads. The outside set of threads is only compatible with QuickDraw reservoirs.™ The inside set of threads is compatible with all common 28mm-thread plastic water bottles (like smartwater®), and narrow-mouth Platy bottles including the SoftBottle™, the Platy® 2L, PlatyPreserve™ and the Platy® Water Tank.

Clean Side: The QuickDraw’s ConnectCap threads directly to all common 28mm-thread plastic water bottles (like smartwater®), and narrow-mouth Platy bottles including the SoftBottle™, the Platy® 2L, PlatyPreserve™, the Platy® Water Tank, and the Hoser™ Reservoir.


  • Combine & Customize: I/O dual threads and the ConnectCap™ let you dial in your custom leak-free system using the clean and dirty vessels you prefer, like smartwater® bottles and Platypus bottles.
  • Ultralight & Compact: Filter weighs just 2.4 oz (69 g) and can fit in your pants pocket.
  • Markings on the filter so you can clearly distinguish between the clean and dirty water end.
  • Fast Flowing: Hollow fibres filter up to 3 litres per minute with normal squeeze pressure or 1.75 litres per minute in a gravity setup.
  • Easy Cleaning: Easily shake-to-clean the system or backflush it to keep the water flowing fast throughout your trip.
  • Safe & Effective: Each microfilter is individually tested to ensure it meets all EPA & NSF guidelines for the removal of 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa*.
  • Integrity Test: Unlike other squeeze filters, easily determine if your filter has been compromised and is unsafe to use in the event of a fall or freezing.
