My family’s going on a camping trip next month, and we’ll have five in our party. What’s the best way to get water for cooking and drinking each night?

U.S. military supplier Sawyer designs its gravity-fed filter to last for a million gallons. With that kind of longevity, your family's trips will be covered for at least a few years. The 2-Liter model has a pore size of .1 micron compared to the .2 or .3 micron rating of its competitors, giving it a greater chance of catching smaller bacteria. On the downside, it’s 5 ounces heavier than its lightest peer.

Capacity: .5 gallons
Filter Pore Size: .1
Filter Life: Unlimited
Flow Rate: .5 gallons/minute
Weight: 16 ounces
