The MSR TrailShot Pocket-Sized Water Filter for Hiking, Camping, Travel, and Emergency Preparedness is designed specifically for adventurers who want an effective, reliable water filter without the weight. Ultralight at just five ounces, and measuring 6×2.4 inches, it fits easily in a stash pocket when backpacking, hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. And when it’s not on the trail, it’s on hand to provide clean water during disasters and emergencies, and in survival situations. Drink directly from lakes, rivers, and streams, without lying in the dirt, with the help of the tube attachment, or fill a water bottle, hydration pack, or other vessel. The easy, one-handed pumping mechanism filters one liter in just 60 seconds. Hollow fiber technology meets U.S. EPA drinking water standards, allowing water to pass through, but trapping harmful protozoa, like giardia and cryptosporidium, as well as bacteria, like salmonella. The MSR TrailShot Pocket-Sized Water Filter is effective against bacteria (99.9999%), protozoa (99.9%) and particulate, and filters up to 2,000 liters without iodine, chlorine, and other chemicals. Easy to clean in the field with just a few shakes to restore the flow rate, no tools required. Made in the USA.

One of the best options for lightweight backpacking filters This filter was one of the most intriguing items from MSR’s new releases for 2017. And amazingly enough, they actually overstated its weight. Its real weight is 4.90oz (139g), as seen in the picture.

Conpact and awesome Works fantastic! I have larger filters for our base camp set-up but use this when hiking to fill water bottles. The size is great, fits in a cargo pocket or small pouch. It pumps fast and still no problems with about 4-5 gallons pumped out so far. You do need to shake it pretty well to clean the filter and keep it pumping well, but it’s a better design than the sawyer set up. I still keep a sawyer mini in my pack for a backup however, this is now my primary overnight/day pack filter. If…

Awesome filter This is a great water filter. Small and conveniently fits in the top of my pack. Fills a 1 liter bottle in about a minute. I was going to buy the replacement filter as well, but it’s only $15 less than the cost of the whole assembly. By the time the filter needs to be replaced, it will probably be time to replace the whole thing. The hose seems a little short, but a longer one would take up considerably more space, so it’s a trade off.
