Most nature and survival enthusiasts have heard of MSR and their gear. One of their most successful product is the MiniWorks EX microfilter. This little guy has been on the market for quite some time now, and has proven to be one of the most reliable water filters available. You can check out other great water filters featured on our site here. Due to its size, the MiniWorks EX can be easily carried on hiking and camping trips ensuring you’ll never run out of clean water.
The MiniWorks EX has the durable and reliable Marathon EX ceramic purifying element with a carbon core that eliminates harmful elements from the water. The carbon core is especially efficient at neutralizing tastes and odors of water contaminated by organic compounds (chlorine, iodine, pesticides…). The purifying element can filter about 2000 liters before changing. The MiniWorks EX filter meets the NSF protocol P231 regarding the removal of 99.9% of bacteria and protozoa out of water. However, you should be aware that it is ineffective at neutralizing viruses in water. The filter can be cleaned entirely in the field without the need of special tools. With the AirSpring Accumulator (air spring pumping system), the microfilter is capable of pumping one liter of water per minute into any standard wide mouth bottle.
MSR’s MiniWorks EX microfilter is a lightweight (1lb/450g), portable, sturdy, reliable water filter, ideal for longer trips where the availability of clean water can be an issue. With this filter, you can breathe easy, as muddy, cloudy or foul smelling water is transformed into clear, odorless, and most importantly drinkable water. [via]
