What is the best water purifier for hiking & backpacking?

16 Aug

When it comes to water purifiers, which is the best? With so many water purifiers on the market, it’s hard to choose… but this one might win the award! Made by General Ecology, The First Need XL is one of the very best water purifiers you can buy. Sure, you can spend a lot more money, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you are getting a better filter. Seriously, this thing rocks.
