Outdoor Gear Lab Editor's Choice Award
"The Platypus GravityWorks filtration system is fast and straightforward to use. W It wins our Editors' Choice Award because it's one of the most versatile and reliable systems tested. Designed for base camp use, it has a plethora of applications. Not only can it filter 1.5L of water in one minute using no other force than gravity, but it doubles as a shower or handwash station. The filter lasts about 1,500L before replacement is needed and requires next to no maintenance. While most gravity filters need to hang, you can filter water on a slope or a rock when no trees or shrubs are around."
