Water, it's the lifeblood of us all, something we need to take in every day and we can't go very long without it. It's so central to our body's ability to function that we need to take it in very regularly, even more so if we are hiking or trekking long distances.
Australia is famously a very dry continent and as such there are not a great deal of clean water sources.
Water is also heavy to carry so by using a portable filtration system, you can shed some kilos off your back and use the available water you may find on your trek. Whether it’s a dam, creek, river or lake, by using one of the water filtration purifiers we have reviewed below, you can safely drink water from almost any source.
