We often take civilization and running water for granted, but there are times when you may be short of both. This could be either when taking a trip into the wilderness or an underdeveloped region, or if affected by a natural disaster like an earthquake, fire or hurricane.
Fortunately, a little preparation can go a long way, and a new product such as the HydroLite Packable Filtration Backpack is a perfect tool to keep you hydrated with drinkable fresh water.
Whether it’s tap water in the Andes to a refill on your next trail run, clean drinking water is just a sip away with Matador’s new HydroLite Packable Filtration Backpack. The HydroLite is the first travel pack that filters water as you drink, providing 100,000 liters of clean drinking water over the life of one filter.
Matador has partnered with HydraPak® and Sawyer®, leaders in hydration and filtration technology, to integrate a technical water filter and hydration system into this packable backpack. HydroLite removes 99.99999% of bacteria and protozoa from any water source, but also packs down to the size of a standard 1L bottle for easy transport.
Most important to your health, the Hydrolite removes a wide range of nasty water-borne bugs, including salmonella, cholera, and E.coli, giardia and cryptosporidium.
