I’ll say it again–when packing for backcountry camping, a goal should be to reduce redundancy in any way you can. Which is why the Grayl 16.9oz UltraPress® Ti Purifier Covert Edition is so useful–it’s essentially three necessities in one: a water bottle, a water filter, and a water pot.

This 16.9-ounce titanium bottle has a built-in filter in the bottom of the inset cup that when twisted downward with a bit of pressure (hence the name Ultrapress), forces water from the outer bottle through the inner filter and into the inset cup. Then it’s set to drink.

Or you can fill the outer cup with unfiltered stream water and boil the water either on a campfire or on a campstove.

It requires a little patience as you squeeze the water through the filter, but this is a small price to pay for such a handy device.

It’s great for multi-day fishing trips or even just a two-hour evening jaunt to the creek. It provides an endless supply of clean, healthy water from most reasonably clean waters. My kiddo and I could’ve been up a creek on a recent adventure into Montana’s Tobacco Roots in which our vehicle got treed in at 8,500 feet on a Jeep trail. We had to hike 8 miles back to our camper, and being able to easily filter and drink creek water was crucial.

It even has a one-way valve that sits in the center of the filter that lets water into the bottle, but not back out, into the filter. This allows you to add water flavoring including the recommended Skratch Labs Hydtration Sport Mix powder (or any kind of powder or liquid water additive) without harming the integrity of the filter.

The outer bottle has butterfly handles to scoop water and also to hold it over flames. It also has a D-ring hear the butterflies for hanging, and a FlipCarry handle on the lid.

While the unit is heavier than a standard water bottle, it’s lighter than the combined weight of a filter, water pot, and water bottle. And it consumes much less space. It’s sturdy and handsome, with a topo pattern on the outer Ti cup, and comes with a mesh carrying sack.

You’ll pay for all this convenience, but you get what you pay for.
