MSR says: The smartest solution to clean water on fast-paced adventures.

Clean water all day—without the weight. That’s the advantage the TrailShot Microfilter provides. Designed to hide in stash pockets and deploy quickly, this tiny water filter lets you drink directly from sources along the trail for instant hydration, and fill your vessels with clean water. Easy one-handed operation filters one liter in a mere 60 seconds, so you can get back on the trail quickly and moving again. At just 142 g (5 oz.), the TrailShot water filter is the ultimate filter for fast-paced, high-mileage adventurers, like trail runners, hikers, fast-packers and mountain bikers.

MSR's Trailshot Microfilter is all about ease of use and convenience, it fits easily into a side pocket on a rucksack and it can be deployed instantly - simply dip the pre-filter end of the tube into the water, remove the cap on the other end and start pumping with one hand. Its easy and takes just a few minutes to filter a litre. When it needs backflushing simply remove the tube and give it a shake.

Product FAQ:

What is the lifespan of the filter in the Trailshot?

The filter in the Trailshot has a lifespan of around 20,000l, dependent on the condition of the water you are filtering. Dirtier water will, of course, shorten the lifespan of the filter. Replacement filters can be found here.

Very good filter

I've not used many filters, I've got a Sawyer filter (but it got frozen before I even got to use it so it's no good). I was a little put-off that the Trailshot is not designed to fit the screw top of a Platypus bottle, but was delighted to find that the hose from a Platy' hydrater will fit the nozzle of the this filter. Sure, if you have to filter a lot of water, this can be tiring, but it is intended more for solo use.

Soo much better than a Sawyer Mini

After hating my Sawyer Mini, with its slow flow rate, hard to fill bottles that split etc, I got this from MSR and it's great. Good flow rate and you can use it in the shallowest of puddles, from which you would struggle to fill a bottle in some of the other filters. Drop the tube in some water and pump - fills your bottle pretty quick. If it clogs, no tools needed to clean it - take the tube off and shake - job done. Not the lightest but I really love mine. The only very slight criticism I have is that when I used it as a group filter and filled several peoples bottles, my hand did get a bit tired from all the pumping. For solo use that would never be a problem though.
