The Aquamira Frontier Pro Tactical portable water filter system provides all the benefits of a larger bottle filter in an ultralight, compact size. This military edition water filter is a straw-style filter in an olive drab color, with a design that attaches directly to water bottles or bladders and an attached cap that keeps mouthpieces clean. Once attached, the Frontier Pro Tactical will remove 99.9 percent of Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and other contaminants down to 3 microns. The filter's activated carbon--made using only the finest-quality coconut shell carbon--absorbs chemicals and odors and improves the taste of the filtered water. And thanks to the filter's Miraguard antimicrobial technology, the filter media resist the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold, and mildew. Use the Frontier Pro Tactical filter to drink from any water bottle, cup, hydration system, or straight from the water source.

The Frontier Pro Tactical comes with a universal connectivity adapter system, which connects directly to any water bottle with a 28mm opening, such as a Platypus or a standard-size bottle. You can also use the tube connection feature to connect directly to your hydration system or drink tube, or drink directly from any open container or water source. And should you want to filter water in advance and drink later, you can flip the Frontier Pro Tactical into "gravity flow" mode. The filter measures 1.25 inches in diameter and 5.5 inches long and weighs 2 ounces dry.

The Frontier Pro Tactical filters up to 50 gallons. To lengthen filter life, use replacement pre-filters.

Note: Miraguard does not protect users against foodborne or disease-causing bacteria, viruses, or germs. If viruses or smaller bacteria are suspected, use in conjunction with Aquamira water purifier tablets.

This is a great little filter for what it does.

Learn what each type of water treatment does and does not do. I wouldn't drink water from any natural source (even a stream or lake) through this without also chemically treating it too. If I would then I probably would have drank it with out any treatment, like from a known pure source, ie. trusted spring.

Most of the pump filters in common use filter out bacteria, some remove viruses, and most all remove giardia and cryptosporidium .

The advertising may be a little deceptive. It is not a lie, just a partial truth.

This filter does nothing to filter out bacteria or viruses. It only takes out Giardia and Cryptosporidium which are both larger organisms (as well as some taste and dirt). This filter in itself is not an acceptable method for treating drinking water from any open stream or lake in the US IMHO. It probably does a good job of removing the things it say it does, but removing bacteria is the basic water treatment you are looking for.

This is basically what the ad says. "Antimicrobial. Removes giardia and cryptosporidium. Ultralight and compact. Portable and easy to use. No wait time." That's a little deceptive advertising, but true. It just doesn't say it that it doesn't take out bacteria virus. It does say this if you get into the company website, and I think on the directions with the filter.

Important: When using this filter you still need to treat the water (chemically with iodine, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, a SteriPEN, etc) to kill bacteria and viruses.

Both the SteriPEN and chlorine dioxide tablets are nice because they have no taste, or even improve the taste in the case of the chlorine dioxide.

All that said, I give it 5 stars.

I got (both) Tactical and PRO versions ...
... AFAICT, the color and the pricing is the only difference.

The PRO version was a subdued gray color, really no more visible than the OD "Tacticool" version ... Side-by-side ... visually? ... you can barely tell the difference, between the PRO and the Tactical.

Depending on your source, the Tactical can cost ~$5 more (plus?).

Functionally ? ... In terms of what you get, in the package ?? Everything else is exactly the same ... IDENTICAL, other than color and pricing and packaged-graphics .

I have a Camelbak Tactical pack and a Digital ACU sleep-system and I can tell you that I was worried that the PRO version might be ORANGE .. Not the case (on *my* order, at least) ... The PRO version was a nice "Panzer" Gray, in my case ... just fine, for $5 less than the Tactical OD.

I imagined there would be some functional "value-add", to the Tactical version ... NOPE ... Just OD green, with all the same parts, pre-filters, straw and adapters.

So ... unless you are gonna (somehow) wear this thing outside your tacticool green pack, just get the PRO version, and save a "fiver".

SUGGESTION : This filter could use a lanyard-hole or a belt-clip ... would be a very helpful/useful "value-add" ...

AND ... Make the tactical version MOLLE/PALS MOUNTABLE (include a plastic speed-clip) ... Now THAT *would* be VERY "tacticool" !
... I would have two-to-four of them, lined up, in a row, on my webbing and (frankly) four of these guys, at ~50 gallons capacity, each ? .. would be a better option than a larger/bulkier Katadyne Hiker, partly because of the redundancy ... if a part breaks? .. I have FOUR MORE (at the same price) ...
