QuickDraw Gravity Microfilter System 3L

Colour: Blue

Basecamp gravity filter for wild adventures

Water is essential for life’s adventures, but damn heavy to carry around in your backpack. With Platypus’ QuickDraw Microfilter, you can reduce your reliance on bottled water and simply filter water from almost any natural source – springs, streams, lakes and rivers. The 3-litre gravity version is ideal for small groups spending a night or two out in the wild. The easy-to-use system comes in two parts: the durable and taste-free QuickDraw reservoir and the hollow fibre filter cartridge. Weighing in at 230g and filtering up to 3 litres per minute, the system is lightweight and efficient. It’s also straightforward to clean, even in the field, with no special tools required. The clever inside/outside (I/O) dual-thread design also means that the filter cartridge fits Smartwater and other 28mm thread bottles and the included bottle adapter will connect to most wide-mouth bottles, ensuring maximum versatility

    • Ultralight and compact filter and reservoir system weighs just 230g
    • 3L QuickDraw reservoir is taste-free, durable and features a wide mouth and handle for easy filling at any water source
    • The I/O dual-thread design allows the filter cartridge to natively attach to the QuickDraw Reservoir, smartwater bottles, the Platy Hoser Reservoir, Platy 2.0L Bottle, Platy SoftBottle, Platy Water Tank and certain common 28mm PET soda/water bottles
    • Compatible with most 28mm and wide-mouth bottles
    • Hollow fibre cartridge delivers a fast flow rate, filtering up to 3L per minute with normal squeeze pressure
    • Quick connect hose and shutoff clamp allows you to filter easily into hydration bladders and water carriers
    • Shake-to-clean or tool-free backflush methods make for quick and easy cleaning of the filter, so you can have fast filtration for your entire trip
    • Attached clean side cap flips open and creates a secure seal when closed, while the soft-touch filter housing is grippy even when wet and won’t pick up dirt from the ground
    • Each microfilter is individually tested to ensure it meets all EPA & NSF guidelines for the removal of 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa (includes Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Salmonella and Cholera)

  • When it comes to doing anything active in the great outdoors, from trail running to backpacking, thirst is one of the biggest enemies. Without adequate hydration to fuel your body, you can’t perform at your best. And not only that – if you’re thirsty, you’re dehydrated. In the worst-case scenarios, that can become a life-threatening problem.

    That’s why US brand Platypus made it their mission to offer the finest, adventure-ready hydration and water filtration products on the planet. They’ve now been at it for over 20 years, fine-tuning their designs to develop highly effective, durable and taste-free bottles, bladders and filters. They even have their own certified, world-class water laboratory, which enables them to research, develop and test innovative technologies for a variety of end uses, from town to trail. 

    It seems that when water geeks, lab technicians, researchers, designers, directors and worker bees come together, with a shared love for outdoor adventure, the result is H2awesome.
