Platypus Quickdraw Microfilter

The Platypus Quickdraw Microfilter is an ultralight, easy to use fill-and-squeeze water filtration system.

There is quite a lot to break down with this filter, but the quick information is that you have a small and compact system, weighing 95g which packs smaller than a rolled-up t-shirt and is capable of up to 3L per minute of filtering. This is all in a product that is simple to use and clean so there should be no problems in accessing clean water, whatever your activity.

Going into more detail you can be confident in the filter, as each microfilter is individually tested to make sure it meets the guidelines for the removal of 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa. The use of the small hollow fibres enables the quick flow rate when squeezing the dirty water reservoir.

The Quickdraw 'Build Your Own System' features an Inside/Outside dual thread design, which means that the filter attaches to smartwater® bottles, the Platypus Hoser Reservoir, Platypus 2.0L Bottle, Platypus SoftBottle™, Platypus Water Tank and various common 28mm plastic drinks/water bottles.

The clean water end is shaped so that you can drink straight from the filter, it also tapers and provides a directional flow for easy filling of water bottles and containers. It has a secure attached cap with a secure seal to prevent contamination. The whole filter is a grippy material, that stays grippy even when wet.

In regard to cleaning, the Quickdraw Microfilter can be cleaned by shaking or by back-flushing, which means that you can keep the filter operational without the use of extra tools on any trips.

Overall the Platypus Quickdraw Microfilter is a great addition to the light and compact water filter market. With its simple design and rugged nature, this filter will last for many adventures.
