The Platypus QuickDraw Microfilter System draws upon the company’s decades of expertise in water filtration and hydration to produce one of the easiest, most-effective fill-and-squeeze portable water filters on the market—perfect for backwoods campers, day hikers, multi-day hikers, and others who need a lightweight, packable water-filtration solution.
The system comes in two parts: the durable, taste-free, one-liter QuickDraw reservoir and the hollow-fiber filter cartridge. Weighing just 3.3 ounces and filtering up to three liters per minute, the QuickDraw system ensures access to clean, parasite-free water, no matter how dirty the source.
To clean the filter, simply perform a tool-free backflush to ensure fast flow rates. The filter has a lifespan of some 1,000 liters, and new cartridges can be purchased separately.
With its dual-thread design, the QuickDraw filter cartridge will screw on to most water bottles and other Platypus bottles and reservoirs. Design elements such as the attached clean-side cap and grippy filter housing eliminate frustrations such as water leakage, lost caps, and dirt-caked gear.
