Best Backpacking Water Filter of 2020

Our experts have tested over 70 of the best backpacking filters of the last decade. This 2020 update features 24 of the market’s current and best for use in the backcountry. We have spent years trundling through dense forests, climbing to the tops of mountains, exploring the far reaches of the Northern Hemisphere, and sampling water sources for all around. We have filtered thousands of liters of water from pristine lakes to polluted puddles and rivers across the world in the process of testing these products. After testing each product, hands-on, and comparing performance, we offer your recommendations to purify and filter water effectively while exploring the great outdoors.
