The Tactical Frontier Pro Filter has earned the stamp of approval from backpackers, preppers, and survivalists alike. Minimal weight, quality design, and maximum connectivity are the signature features of this filter. Improved to include a replaceable bacteria-grade filter, the Frontier Pro offers a robust 2 oz. defense against the common culprits that cause waterborne illness.
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.

It is made well, good molded plastic and rubber. Not cheesy like some people said. Equal to any of the other popular units. Lots of nice features, deep threads that screw onto a standard soda or water bottle with a perfect nice and tight fit. And this was an issue with other units that I read about online. Works as it's supposed to functionally. Again, lots of nice features.
But...it's big. And to make it a bit smaller you can take off the water bladder attachment, but then you have parts scattered to worry about, an issue I have with these things. And then it's the same size as the H2O straw which I already have or the Life Straw I looked at in a store. Just to note some impressions on You Tube say this makes water taste better then the life straw.
I got this to fit in my ultra light EDC ...L.L. Bean Lumbar pack and to replace the mini Fronteir Energy filter I have been carrying as a back up and seeing on You Tube people were getting sick with. I already have a Katadyn Mini pump, which really is the no brainer investment in any serious person preparing for a survival situation, or serious travel, camp, backpacking hands down. But I don't always want to carry all this gear everyday, not so much for weight because the Katadyne is like a feather, but for size. It's like carrying two straws. My guy was on me when I wanted this because he has the Sawyer mini, and yes, now I see, much smaller. To be honest, if I knew it was this size I probably would have got the Renuvo Tri which filters out way more, or the Survival Straw I looked at as well, or so they say...read on....
This unit does not filter out bacteria and viruses or go down to the supposed 0.01 microns like the H2O for 400 gallons. Infact it does not state how many "microns" on line but I saw on you Tube .3, so don't quote me, and is only rated for 50 gallons. It's all that 99.9 or 99.9999, stuff, etc. After I ordered this I saw a post here on Amazon referring to the actual Website where it clearly does state that it does not "treat" bacteria or viruses so I am just totally confused with the words filter, treat, and none say completely eliminate. MAYBE THEY ARE ALL THE SAME. There is always the next issue of flushing these units out. This supposedly has an anti mold clamshell filter. And there is no extra back wash plunger, again, more stuff to loose in the woods, or carry around. You just blow out the water.
If I had to choose for esthetics, color, quality and function and features, then I would choose the Fronteir Pro in that case.
Last note... The package it comes in can be used as a water holder, not impressed at all. Not like the Sawyer or H2O That comes with a decent plastic bladder with drink cover and caribina.
Have not tested in the field yet to see how easy it is to drink from, will update.
Attached is a pic of (left to right) the Frontier Energizer Mini I was replacing, the Frontier Pro purchased here, and an H2O Straw. Also in the pic is the Katadyne Mini pump in a condor water bag in the background for size reference.
GOOD LUCK !
