Bring Along a Camping Water Filter

Do you love camping? Don't forget your camping water filter!

It's great to be outside and feel like you're at one with nature, living off the land. No electronic gadgets or work stress to worry about, just being off the grid.

When I am out camping I always imagine what it would have been like to be a frontiersman out walking the same forests hundreds of years earlier. I wonder what they did to keep warm and dry before the advent of Gor-tex and Thinsulate! Could have been pretty uncomfortable I imagine.

One of the other nice modern conveniences we have is camping water filters.

It's not really glamorous... I imagine our forebears enjoyed dipping the canteen right into fresh mountain streams that they found along their journeys.

However, water-borne illnesses were present and common, and serious back in the day, and they are now. We just don't hear about them much because we have such readily available water treatment systems at our disposal.

It's important to realize that your filter is doing more than just getting sand, leaves and mud out of your water. It's also screening out harmful bacteria, like giardia, that can make you sick!

I used to go to a campground where they had a picture of a Doe peeing in the river. The caption said, "Her Relief - Your Grief." This is how giardia is transferred, and trust me - you don't want it!

When it comes to camping water filters, you have several different options.

First - you have a hand-held filter and pump. This pumps water out of the lake or river and into your water bottle, passing it through a filtration system first. You have to manually pump the water through, but it's easy - even little bitty boy scouts can do it.

Second - you have a built-in filter in your water bottle. Just fill up the water bottle and go... sort of like a Britta water filter, the water will go through the filter and be clean by the time you drink it.

Third - you have an ultra-violet water treatment system, like the SteriPen, which blasts your water with light rays, to sterilize it and kill microbes.

There are also various pills and drops you can put in your water. I've used iodine drops before, but I found they stained my teeth yellow. Also, you want to be careful of putting additives in your water, because you will be consuming those chemicals yourself. They may be the lesser of two evils.

Personally, I think a camping water filter is the way to go. You can get one to share with your whole family, or get everyone his own in-bottle filter. It's nice to have options.

Are you ready to go camping? Don't miss out on clean water - find the camping water filter that's right for you!
