Thoughtfully designed by experts in hydration, the QuickDraw features an attached clean side cap for an always-clean drink interface, while the durable RF-welded reservoir has a wide mouth for rapid filling at any water source.
Like the QuickDraw System but without the reservoir, the easy-to-use QuickDraw Microfilter will revolutionize your adventure filtration system. With its inside/outside (I/O) dual-thread design, the QuickDraw filter cartridge securely adapts to smartwater® bottles, most Platy bottles and reservoirs and many common soda/water bottles allowing you to develop your ideal personalized kit. Weighing just 2.2 oz (63 g) and filtering up to 3L per minute, the QuickDraw allows quick and easy access to clean water during ultralight missions and any other adventure. You can either shake-to-clean the hollow fiber filter or perform a tool-free backflush to ensure the fast flow rates will stick around for the duration of your trips. Design elements like the attached clean side cap and grippy-but-not-sticky filter housing eliminate frustrations like leaking water in the pack, lost small parts, and dirt-caked gear so you can confidently go out and explore the wilderness.
Platypus' QuickDraw Microfilter is exactly that, a very small filter weighing just 68g and measuring just under 13cm in length with a 4cm diameter. It uses hundreds of tiny hollow fibres to filter to quickly clean up to 3L of water per minute but this is when it is working at 100% so usually the flow rate is less than this but even after a lot of use the rate is decent enough. For such a lightweight piece of kit it is seriously durable and should keep going with regular cleaning and a bit of care. It is quick and easy to clean with a simple shake with clean water or a backflush (with no need for any tools).
You can use this filter as a straw directly at the water source or attach it to a bottle of water to drink easily. The filter can be combined with a range of Platypus hydration options or other branded bottles with a 28mm screw top opening. It safely removes 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa, including Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Salmonella and Cholera.
