What’s in Your Water? The Results of a Comprehensive Outdoor Water Filter Test

By The ITS Crew

When you’re in the great outdoors, it’s important to properly filter your water to avoid harmful contaminants. Nothing ruins a great trip faster than picking up something nasty from a water source. However, with all the options out there for water filtration devices, it can be tough to know where to start. Today, we wanted to highlight an awesome comprehensive water filter test we recently came across.

The team over at Widener’s Reloading & Shooting Supply put together this exhaustive water filter test examining some of the top devices on the market and what each device really filters. Their results were run through an independent accredited laboratory and they did a great job detailing their water sources and testing methods.

In addition, Widener’s guide provides information about common contaminants found in water and the process filters go through to remove them. It’s a great read and we encourage you to dive in!
