GRAYL is well-known for making awesome water filters. They have developed a line that covers water purifiers you can use in all occasions. Now, besides the popular Legend and Quest filters, they started a Kickstarter campaign for the all-new GRAYL Ultralight.
This water purifier has an inner press, outer refill, replaceable purifying cartridge and a cap. It doesn’t need batteries, chemicals, pumping or squeezing, as it uses a very simple two step process. All you need to do is fill it with water, slowly press the inner cup into the outer cup and you’ll get great tasting water in just 15 seconds. That’s it. The bottle itself weighs 10.9 ounces, making it the lightest GRAYL water filter.
GRAYL Ultralight is very efficient. It purifies viruses like Rotavirus, Norovirus and Hepatitis A, bacteria and protozoan cysts from the water. It’s also very good against all sort of chemicals, heavy metals and particulates, and it improves water health, taste, odor and clarity. It’s great to have it on backpacking trips and when you’re travelling since it allows you to drink directly from lakes and streams. It comes in black and orange.
GRAYL Ultralight is highly packable and has an integrated attachment loop on the cap, so you can easily clip it on a backpack. The bottle is BPA-free and made from food grade silicone. For those of you who are geeky enough to understand the water purifying process, we’ll mention the technology. GRAYL Ultralight uses Electroadsorption, ultra-powdered activated carbon and silver treated zeolites. The thing you should remember to do is replace the cartridge after 300 uses.
