Aquamira Frontier water filtration system, 650 Bht from the new Promonada Mall sports shop in Chiang Mai













Discussion on Backpacking light regarding the Aquamira filter below:



GEAR » Aquamira Frontier Pro Filter. -- BackpackingLight.com Forums






As they say in the above discussion, this filter is only rated 3 microns and claims to remove 99.9% of giardia and other harmful bacterias. With bacteria able to pass through 0.2 microns im not sure how they can make these certified claims?


Ive bought one to test and in suspect areas will use a couple of drops of iodine in the product water too.











From the manufacturers website:


The Frontier Emergency Water Filter System is ideal for hiking, travel, and emergency preparedness. It is the perfect addition to your 72 hour emergency kit. One unit will filter up to 30 gallons (110L) of water. The Frontier Filter is tested and certified to remove >99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The Frontier Emergency Water Filter System is also easy to operate, just attach and expand the straw, submerge the filter end into the water source, and drink through the straw.

Ultra light and compact, the Aquamira Frontier Emergency Filter System weighs less than one ounce and easily slips into a day pack, shirt pocket or travel luggage and is always ready when you need it. The Frontier Filter is the ideal alternative to heavy, bulky and expensive pump filtration units when space and weight are primary factors. Activated coconut shell carbon helps reduce waterborne chemicals, improves water taste and eliminates odors. Use the Frontier Emergency Water Filter System to drink from any bottle, cup or directly from water sources.

This aquamira filter is the size of a marker pen, might be useful for day rides when you dont want to take lots of gear and things dont go as planned
