Aquamira-Safe Water For All Your Outdoors Activities

13 11 2015

aquamiraAmericans are worried about their drinking water. That is why over 50 billion bottles of water were consumed last year. When you look at the numbers, the plastic required to bottle that amount of water equates to more than 1 billion dollars of plastic. At home I try to use filter bottles, and my tap water to drink; when I am outdoors, it is impossible to carry the amount of water I need daily with me.

Aquamira makes staying hydrated and cutting down on the plastic waste hitting the landfills easy. The Frontier Flow Filtered Water Bottle takes out 99.9999% of bacteria, including  Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Chlorine and bad odors/taste are also removed by the Green Line replaceable filter, and the Red LIne Filter removes all this and viruses for when you travel abroad or areas prone to water born viruses. This water bottle has the highest flow rate of any water bottle on the market, at 500 ml per minute, and it is BPA free.The bottle is treated with Miraguard™ Antimicrobial Technology to reduce the growth of bacteria, fungus, and mold within the filter. The new design of the ergonomic bottle is to be comfortable in hand and to fit into bicycle water bottle holders. It utilizes a Bite Me valve, and best of all, Made in the USA! The Green Line filter filters 100 gallons of water over the life of the filter, while the Red Line filter treats 120 gallons.

I keep a carabiner on the finger grip carry loop, so it can hang off of my packs or belt. When I am in a treestand, the same carabiner can be used to hold the bottle on a tree hook or limb.

The Frontier Max In-Line Filtration System uses the same type of Red Line filtering system in a in-line design made perfect for hydration packs. Using the Quick Connect adapter, I had the in-line filter installed in minutes on my hunting pack. Now no matter where I go or how I get there, I will be sure of safe, clean water anytime.

While I try to fill my bottle or hydration pack from the tap, occasions arise that make that impossible; at these times, I fill my bottle from fast running water that is flowing over rocks and is highly aerated.

Recently I spent ten days camping with my family. I carried the Frontier Flow or the Frontier Max with me everywhere as I fished and hiked. I was confident that the water I was ingesting was safe and free from any worrisome bacteria, bugs, and/or viruses. My granddaughter tended to grab whichever filter I was not using to use herself. I would never deny her access to clean water, and I think these will make the ideal Christmas present for her!

Aquamira Water Filter Solutions

28 11 2014

aquamira logoContaminated water can ruin a trip of a lifetime quickly! Whether you are enjoying the outdoors or traveling abroad, water contaminated with bacteria and other pathogens, is often your only source to drink. I often travel to remote areas that the water quality is questionable. While I try to have bottled water available, that isn’t always feasible. Aquamira, a division of McNett, has made it easy to find water treatment options for when you are out in the woods. I have 2 favorite products that I use when I need to know my water is safe from invisible culprits.

The Frontier Emergency Filter is a very light weight straw type filtration system that weighs in at only one ounce. This uses the torturous path method of water filtration. The filter traps over 99.9% of the harmful Cryptosporidium, Giardia and other pathogens, including waterborne insect larvae and many bacteria such as E. coli. There are only 2 parts to this BPA Free filter; the simple 6” long plastic straw and a 4” filter that use activated Coconut Shell Carbon to reduce the water-borne contaminants and remove offensive odors and tastes. The filter is treated with Miraguard Antimicrobial Technology that suppresses the bacteria growth within the filter media, which could include algae and molds.

I can tuck this simple filter into my daypack or backpack when hiking or hunting. You can simply use the straw to drink directly from your chosen water source. Since it can filter up to 30 gallons, this would be ample water supply for several days.

The other option I prefer is the Aquamira Water Bottle and Capsule Filter. Today most people grab a water bottle as they head out for the day. I grab mine also. But since mine is the Aquamira Water Bottle, I can rest assured that when in the need of a refill, I will be getting safe and delicious water, and not water borne illness!

Aquamira’s Water Bottle features a carry loop, and a strong Tritan dust cap with positive shut off to prevent leaks. The activated coconut shell carbon water filter will treat up to 100 gallons, and is treated with the Miraguard Antimicrobial Technology to suppress the growth of molds, fungus and bacteria in the filter. The filter removes over 99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The water bottle is designed to be comfortable in your hand, and to fit in bicycle cages, and has a Bite Me Valve to keep the water in the bottle until you need it.

I keep my water bottle attached to my hunting backpack using a carabiner. I am able to have clean, safe water anytime and place I need it. During some of our more remote hunts, this bottle has made the difference in having enough to drink, while not becoming sick. My husband and I used these during a caribou hunt in Northern Quebec. We were trekking an average of 12 miles a day. I was not able to carry enough water with me, so the Aquamira Water Bottle made it possible for me not to become dehydrated, and I was able to keep the weight to a minimum. Water is plentiful there, just questionable. I would fill up my bottle at every water crossing, being able to drink my fill and quench my thirst made the hunt easier on my body. Between the water filter and the ever-present blueberries, I took care of both of my body’s needs easily; eating and drinking.

The MSRP on the Frontier Emergency Filter is $19.95 and $29.95 for the Water Bottle & Capsule Filter, a small price to pay for peace of mind. Both of these filters can be purchased at https://www.mcnett.com/store/. Don’t let contaminated water ruin your trip!
