The MSR water filter

water-surivival-1Stopped for a second to get my bearing, and to see if I could find a river bed.  I am stuck behind enemy lines and need to make it back to my unit.  One of the hardest things we have to remember is to stay calm and

drink WATER!  Food not as much, yes it is a must but water is the most important.  There I spotted the river, northwest of my position around 3/4 miles away.  I started to make my way as slow as I could without making to much noise.  I need to remember that staying a live is the key and I will survive.  Reaching the water I pulled out of my back pack the new MSR water filter to drain all the chemicals out of the water and drink some fresh stuff.  I reached into the water as far as I could in the middle and started pumping.  Yes, it is going to be a good day.

Have you heard of the MSR?  One of the best water filters I have found. Why do you want to deal with all that yucky stuff and unpleasant tastes.  The MSR uses micro-filters to help get out all the crap and let’s you drink it refreshing.  REI sells them at a great price with all the extras you will


need, here is what they say:

  • Backpacker April ’08: ”The HyperFlow is so fast and light it converted several editors who had sworn off filters in favor of chemical treatment.”

  • Hollow fiber technology offers an extremely high flow rate of 2.75 liters per minute

  • At just 7.8 oz., the HyperFlow is the lightest, most compact pump filter created by MSR

  • Filter physically removes particles, protozoa, and bacteria down to 0.2 microns in size, including giardia, salmonella, cryptosporidia and others

  • Pump is fully field maintainable and does not require tools for complete disassembly

  • Included Quick-Connect™ bottle cap interfaces with MSR hydration products, Nalgene bottles and other containers with 63mm threaded openings

  • Quick-Connect™ cap allows the pump to attach directly to the bottle or hydration bladder for the most convenient filling

  • Included prefilter attaches to the end of the intake hose and blocks larger contaminants from entering the microfilter

  • Prefilter floats near the surface of the water to avoid intake of contaminants located at the floor of your water source

  • Over-molded end caps on the pump provide an excellent grip and pumping comfort

  • Adapt the HyperFlow pump into a pump-free gravity filter with the HyperFlow Gravity kit, sold separately


So when you need fresh water NOW! never have to wait use the MSR now.  Until next time
