Compared to other filters on the market, the Platypus has an incredibly fast flow. It can filter 2 liters in only 1.5 minutes. And with a .2 micron filter, it can safely remove giardia, salmonella, and cryptosporidium. The filter comes in two versions: a 9.5 ounce model that attaches directly to your water bottle or an 11.5 ounce version that drains into a 2-liter Platy bottle.

Capacity: .5 gallon
Filter Pore Size: .2 microns
Filter Life: 400 gallons
Flow Rate: .4 gallons/minute
Weight: 9.5 ounces
