A high quality water filter is a requirement in any kind of survival or “every day carry” bag. HydroBlu brand water filters are some of the best we’ve used, and are perfect for families. They are light, easy to use, and don’t allow water to pass through when the filter is used up. In this demo video we will show you how to use the Sidekick 3-Stage Straw Filter and the Clear Flow Water Bottle and Filter. Both products were simple enough for our 10-yer-old son to figure out how to use. He now carries the Sidekick in his survival pack permanently!

Our favorite features of these filters:

  • filters down to 0.1 microns
  • also removes heavy metals and chemicals
  • reusable – just back-flush, dry, and pack for future use (up to 1 year)
  • So easy, even a child can use them correctly with minimal instruction!

Versa Flow Filter

The Versa Flow filter is the MacGyver of water filters. You can sip from a source, cap it on a water bottle, plug it into a cooler or jug, or line it into a bladder hydration system. Because of this, we are smitten with this filter system! One cartridge for this filter can purify up to 10,000 gallons of water. It filters out 99.999% of bacteria and protozoa, and is completely affordable.
