First Need XL Water Purifier

Dubbed the best portable water purifier for hiking and camping by Modern Outpost, we are hoping this doohickey will save us loads of money on bottled water simultaneously saving us from waterborne illness.

The specs on the First Need XL Water Purifier that make it special include a 0.1 micron filter that filters out all 3 classes of microbiological baddies, including cysts, bacteria, and viruses. JC has even purported such extreme uses as drinking water filtered through this purifier from rivers in Calcutta and Nepal, and has lived to tell tale. That gets my seal of approval!

And as an added bonus, I do hear that you get big biceps from filling a few containers a day so Ron has his daily workout regimen to look forward to. I’ll be sure to make him switch it up so he doesn’t come back all outta whack with one arm brawny and the other scrawny.

Yes, I am also a poet.

Yo, check out First Need - 0.1 micron baby! - it much cheaper too!

Small enough to remove Giardia, cryptosporidia, viruses, and harmful bacteria.

Screws onto nalgene.

0.1 Micron?! Clearly I didn't research this as well as I could have.

I have canceled the order on the Katadyn Pocket filter and will edit with a our new acquisition.

Thanks for the recommendation Jonathan!
