The Hiker Microfilter is capable of removing any largest or tiniest particle from the drinking water. It can also remove small bacteria, protozoa, including salmonella and giardia. The filter has a carbon chamber inside, which helps improve the overall taste and appearance of drinking water.
It is a gravity filter that has two size options available in the market, 2.0 L and 4.0L. It has two reservoirs, one for dirty water and another for clean water. A dirty reservoir needs to be attached to a tree branch or a surface high above the ground. The water will then flow from dirty to clean reservoir, due to gravity, and gets filtered while passing through, the hose attached in between both the reservoirs. It also has an antimicrobial coating which ultimately improves the taste of the water.
