I Get Out Regularly
What are Adventure Levels?
Platypus took the already fast and easy-to-use GravityWorks filter system and came up with this smaller and lighter 2-liter version to fill your water bottles on backcountry adventures. Save time, and your back, by simply scooping up water into the dirty reservoir and letting gravity do the rest of the work. All you need is this kit and somewhere to hang the dirty water from. Within minutes, the water will filter clean through the hose into a second reservoir. Great weight-saving option for 1-4 people backpacking together.
