–1150– The Frontier Pro portable water filter from Aquamira filters up to 50 gallons of water and removes >99.9% of cryptosporidium and giardia. Weighs only 2 ounces when dry and is roughly the size of a small flashlight. The cap is also attached so you won’t have to worry about losing it but can move it out of the way when necessary. It can be attached to hydration bladder hoses, Platypus bottles and water or soda bottles with an adapter. Looks like an interesting device and something in between the Sawyer Squeeze and Life Straw. MSRP $24.95. ^MP

@ITStactical order up
@ITStactical did you get approval to post that?! Lol! Never had a manufacturer stop so many people from taking pics before...
@ITStactical did you get approval to post that?
@ITStactical can you change sides for lefties?
@ITStactical How's the mood on the floor this year? I understand last year was a little bleak, for obvious reasons.
@ITStactical I own a Frontier Pro. It was made obsolete by the Sawyer Mini. 100000 gallons versus 50. At nearly the same price point.
The Sawyer mini filters 100,000 gallons and sells for the same price. What are the differences? Seems like Sawyer is the way to go.
@ITStactical Why not get a LifeStraw that filters 1000 liters and costs less? Got 2 in my 72-hour bag.
@ITStactical this shows just how advanced the industry is becoming
@ITStactical I need one of these
@RichardRyan Yeah the guy was super cool and didn't mind at all. ^MP
