With so many water bottles to choose from, what do you look for? I have had so many different designs of water bottles fall by the wayside for various reasons: leaking, losing the lid, not fitting in my knapsack pocket and for obvious reasons, I will not use the plastic disposable, filling up the landfill site bottles. For global travel and outdoor adventure and even in emergencies, it is the only water bottle for travel that boasts its own filter with one press purification and filtration. Whether you are filling up at a sketchy hotel sink in India, on a challenging trail needing to drink from a murky stream, or at home preparing a disaster kit, the Ultralight has your back. For the adventurous to drink anywhere and for the un-adventurous, to use at any hotel sink anywhere.
The Grayl Ultralight water bottle has an innovative water treatment solution designed to remove viruses, bacteria, protozoa, chemicals and heavy metals from backcountry water sources.
Without getting too technical, the purifier cartridge in the Grayl uses a technology called electro-adsorption, where relatively large pores are overlaid with a positively-charged mesh that latches onto germs like little magnets.
The Grayl is called a “water purifier” because it removes more substances than a “water filter”, including chemicals such as chlorine and iodine, and heavy metals including lead and arsenic. It also removes viruses, making it an excellent solution for international travel.
Fast and easy, taking only 15 seconds, fill up the 16-ounce GRAYL, push the filter down French-press style and drink up. It may very well be the only water bottle that anyone, anywhere, will ever need. Remarkably, the Ultralight does not require batteries, UV bulbs, chemicals, pumping, squeezing or prolonged waiting.
The replaceable purifier cartridge is rated for 300 uses (40 gal. / 150L) before needing replacement and the bottle can be used indefinitely.
The bottle was funded by a kickstarter campaign and designed by two Seattle-area entrepreneurs who believe they’ve created the world’s best portable water filter.
