No matter how clear and clean the water may look, microscopic contaminants and lifeforms like bacteria and viruses could wreak havoc on your entire trip. If you're going somewhere that water safety is an issue, Outdoor Gear Exchange recommends always carrying a chemical purification option like Polar Pure or Potable Aqua. If you need water immediately or just don't like chemicals, then check out our selection of great filters from MSR and Katadyn. If you're feeling high tech, then look at SteriPen's line of UV purification gizmos.
