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?

A:

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
$100
