A good hiking experience will leave you with memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. You can read more about this in our past post here. However, hiking can also turn out to be an absolute nightmare, especially if you get ill because of drinking contaminated water. Remember; E.coli is lurking out there somewhere! If you are not careful, an ordinary hiking water filter can disappoint you.
“My husband and I shared his portable water bottle when we went for a hiking trip in the Rocky Mountains last year. We always had fresh water.”Melissa and Dave, Pierre, South Dakota
“A year today since my last hiking holiday in Argentina, I still remember how my portable water filter saved me from diarrhea while all my friends fell sick, keeping full-time guard at the toilet.”William Mahoney, Southampton

What do you consider when choosing the best hiking water filter? To choose the ultimate hiking water filter, you need to ask yourself the following questions:
- What is the size of the portable water filter? Can it fit into your backpack?
- Is the filter too heavy to carry around?
- What is the average filtration time? Will it be able to provide a quick fix to an emergency problem – a sudden need of water?
- What is the constituent of the filter medium? Is it effective enough?
- Can it eliminate all contaminant organisms?
- Can it eliminate even the minutest of organisms, that is, viruses?
Making all these comparisons can be a daunting task, especially with all the other considerations you have to make before taking your hiking trip.
But not anymore!
When you have a GoFreshWater bottle and portable filter, you are in control of your life. Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E.coli and rotavirus cease to be a threat to your life any more.
Are all water purification methods good?
Bottled water companies claim to use many methods to make their water as close to the pure H2O as possible, but do they really? Or are they mainly concerned with making their product marketable in shelves? Various types of water have different uses.
Apart from drinking, H2O is used in medical applications, for irrigation, and for cleaning contact lenses, among many other uses. People love the convenience of carrying plastic water bottles in their hands while walking or having them in their car for regular drinking.
However, it is very unfortunate that many people have never even thought about the fact that sunrays have an adverse effect on water and can cause contamination.
You will love the liberty to travel anywhere in the world without a worry of contracting Montezuma’s revenge, Bali belly, Delhi belly or the many other forms of travelers’ diarrhea. How GoFreshWater hiking water filter works
The GoFreshWater bottle is an amazing three-in-one combo. It is not only a purifier and a portable water filter but also a water bottle. Once you pour your water into the bottle, it is pushed through an actual filter
In turn, this strains the bacteria and protozoa as small as 1 micron. The purifier also has a unique and technologically advanced mechanism that kills viruses and eliminates chemicals and heavy metals as well as other impurities.
Even more amazing is that the entire filtration and purification process take less than two minutes. This will enable you to quench your thirst and keep it moving.
Weight As a hiker, the weight of your backpack and the water purification system should be of great concern. I am suggesting that you consider GoFreshWater for the following occasions:
- Long distance hikes
- International travel base camps
- Average hiking, for instance, within the US, Australia and other parts of Europe
Water Purification Time Did you know that other methods of water treatments take a long time to be effective? Chemical and UV treatments can take hours. In the end, the water still may have traces of contaminants. Thus, the safest method for emergency water purification during hikes is through the use of portable filters like the ones offered by GoFreshWater. CLICK HERE to purchase your hiking water filter.

Does GoFreshWater have the ability to filter large water quantities?
Many times people go hiking as part of a group. Therefore, a need may arise for a large quantity of water to hydrate every member of the group. When you have GoFreshWater, you will not need to worry at all. Given that the hiking water purifier is effective and does the job fast, your fellow hikers will not be kept waiting in line long for their turn to use the portable water filter.
The Filter Medium While the GoFreshwater bottle might look simple, a lot of research and development has been involved in its design.
This revolutionary portable water filter is the first of its kind to utilize an ultra-filtration membrane to eliminate stubborn bacteria and viruses.
Right at the bottom of the purifier is an odor and chemical remover. The system is so ahead of its time that it uses activated carbon technology. To ensure effective filtration, the product has been fitted with a negative pressure barrel.
It is important to note that not a single GoFreshWater purifier is released to the market before it is carefully tested. This means that the customers are assured that the device will execute its task as per their expectations.
Guaranteed to not fail
Ordinary hiking water filters can fail while you are in the middle of your hiking trip. I know many people who have complained that their portable purifiers are clogged after just a few days of usage.
Well, GoFreshWater is different.
The outer layer is so hard and durable to ensure that the delicate internal parts are well protected. Besides, the device has stood the test of time and most of its users are already expressing their satisfaction regarding its effectiveness.
It has been proven that GoFreshWater can last for more than 10 years!
That is a long time for a product to demand maintenance. However, once you have purchased this filter, the chance that you will incur a maintenance cost on the product is very minimal.
No hiker should have to suffer from hydration because a water filter failed far away from home. This is the reason why we make the efficiency of our products a priority. We know how it feels to have your hard-earned vacation days ruined by preventable mishaps. Most importantly, we care for the health and safety of our clients.

The size of the micron
Most people think that clear water is clean water.
This perception is usually wrong and it can lead to fatal consequences. As clean as they may look, spring water, tap water and bottled water may contain millions of harmful bacteria and viruses!
Each contaminant organism can weigh as little as 1 micron or even less. Because we cannot see them, there is only one way to ensure they do not get into our body system – use a reliable water purifier.
Get rid of the bacteria, protozoa and viruses in order to drink water without any fear at all. While on hikes, make sure that the spring water is safe for drinking by filtering it using a GoFreshWater bottle. For a reasonable price, you can have your own hiking water filter by following this LINK.
