When you’re out on long hikes or camping trips, you’ll want to take a water purifier.

This new model from Grayl promises to be the fastest, most versatile water purifier in the world. The makers say you can use it anywhere in complete confidence it will remove pathogens such as protozoan cysts, bacteria and virus, as well as filtering heavy metals, chemicals and microplastics.

The Geopress has a 710-milliliter capacity and purifies water in just eight seconds, faster than any comparable device. All you have to do is fill it up, press down once and then drink.

It’s a simple system that performs fast and well, cutting down on the amount of water you need to lug around with you on long hikes. If you are a keen walker or cyclist that spends time in isolated areas, this is a great device to take with you.

The purifier will retail for $90 following a successful Kickstarter campaign, a small price to pay for the freedom of drinking from streams around the world. Shipping is scheduled for April 2019, so pre-order now to get one in time for summer.
