Product Description

Amazon.com

The Aquamira Frontier Pro portable water filter system provides all the benefits of a larger bottle filter in an ultralight, compact size. The Frontier Pro is a straw-style filter, with a design that attaches directly to water bottles or bladders and an attached cap that keeps mouthpieces clean. Once attached, the Frontier Pro 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 filter to drink from any water bottle, cup, hydration system, or straight from the water source.

The Frontier Pro 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 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 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 system is very light, doesn't take up much room, is simple to use and reasonably priced.
Tradecraft
The cap on the end lifts up to reveal a bite and suck type valve, similar to that of my camelback, very comfortable and easy to suck through.
Jake
It's more expensive up front, but cheaper in the long run and will filter water waaaaaay faster.

Despite a lack of reviews when I purchased this unit, I decided to risk the $20 due to its novel design. After a couple of trips, I have to say I'm impressed. I'll be taking the filter with me on future trips.

If you're into ultralight backpacking or simple day hikes, this filter could save you a lot of weight. It screws onto any standard soda/pop/water bottle (think Coke, Sprite, Aquafina, etc.) and you bite/suck through the nozzle (like a CamelBak) to drink; the water is filtered between the bottle and your mouth.

I coupled the filter with a 1.5L Smart Water bottle (available at most grocery stores) due to the Smart Water's unique size/shape combination, which makes it easier to carry and squeeze. The system acted as an excellent backup unit during my trips. I just filled the bottle directly from the water source, screwed on the filter, and drank. Much easier than pumping.

The unit is also supposed to work with the included straw (for drinking directly out of water sources) or with hydration packs (in place of a regular bite valve). I have not tried either configuration, so I can't attest to their effectiveness.

Pros:
----------
+ Works like it's supposed to
+ Small and very light
+ Low-cost
+ Fits onto any standard soda/pop/water bottle
+ Stretchy silicone/rubber neck keeps cap in place while closed and safely attached while drinking
+ Entire thing floats if accidentally dropped into water
+ Comes with several replacement pre-filters

Cons:
----------
- Non-replaceable filter cartridge (you can buy a whole new one for $20, but that creates unnecessary garbage)
- Flow rate isn't terribly fast.

This filter is of limited utility because of the large pore size which allows most bacteria and all viruses to get through. It will only strain out particulates, cryptosporidium and giardia. Therefore, you will need to chemically treat the water for at least 15 minutes before you use th filter. The advantage to this filter is that you can chemically treat the water and be able to drink it through the filter without waiting the full 1-4 hours required for the chemicals to kill giardia and cryptosporidium. There is also a way you can convert this filter into a very lightweight gravity filter system using collapsible playpus type water containers and plastic tubing.

Certain products are designed to do certain things. Such as - you would not drive a race car to the local corner store, or back and forth to work. A race car was designed to be on the race track, not the neighborhood streets.

The Aquamira Frontier Pro Water Filter is designed for a certain purpose, and users need to be aware of those purposes and limitations.

The filter will not remove viruses. They have to be killed with chemical treatment.

The filter will not remove certain types of bacteria.

However, it is light wieght, easy to use, has no moving parts to break and is easy to clean.

Instead of drinking the water straight from the stream, you could fill up a water bottle, add some purification tablets, then use this filter to help remove the chemical taste.

I wish the filters removed more bacteria and that replacment filters were avaible. Having to buy a new unit when the filters get dirty is a turn off.

The plastic housing seems kind of weak. Its not made out of a high impact plastic, its more like a cheap plastic that toys are made out of.

If you are on a budget, this might get the job done. But if you can afford a full fledged filter, then go ahead and buy something better.

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect with this, since there were no reviews, but I took a stab at it an I am very impressed.

Firstly, the one I got was orange, rather than the gray shown, but I prefer the Orange, so that's an improvement if anything.

When I was looking over the possibilities for water purification I saw pumps, tablets and other things that just looked complicated, and possibly ineffective if used incorrectly. This however is as simple as they come.

The cap on the end lifts up to reveal a bite and suck type valve, similar to that of my camelback, very comfortable and easy to suck through. The opposite end has two adapters that screw onto it. The first attaches to a bottle, like that of a standard soda/water bottle, which has a flexible plastic tube that goes down into the water. The other is a tube that allows you to drink directly from a water source, no bottle needed. With it you would put that adapter end into the water and simply suck through the other end. It's an extremely simple design.

Overall, I am very impressed with this purchase, and see myself purchasing another one or two in the future.

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 and some of the comments here may be a little deceptive or misinformed.

This filter does nothing to filter out bacteria or viruses. It only takes out Giardia and Cryptosporidium which are both larger organisms. This filter in itself is not an acceptable method for treating drinking water from any open stream or lake in the US in my book. 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.

Killing bacteria is important as many of the traditional water born illnesses are caused by bacteria. Examples are Botulism, Campylobacteriosis, Cholera, E. coli Infection, M.
