Gear New: the Platypus Meta Bottle Industry News November 9, 2016 Join the Conversation Seattle based Platypus has released what they're calling the Meta Bottle, something that might be of interest for your EDC. Platatac tells us it will filter 99.9999% of Bacteria and 99.9% of Protozoa, including Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Salmonella and Cholera. Here’s what they tell us about it. New: the Platypus Meta Bottle Whether you're traveling, hiking, or moving about town, the Platypus Meta Bottle will quickly become your favorite hydration companion. The easy to use bottle comes apart for easy cleaning, and can be conveniently compacted down to half its size for easy storage and transport. The Platypus Meta Bottle also has an optional Microfilter accessory, which turns the bottle into a personal water filter for safe drinking water in the backcountry. When used as a water filter, the Platypus Meta Bottle ($49.95 USD w/ Microfilter) is both fast and easy. The pump-free design saves time and energy, providing filtered water with a simple “Scoop, close, drink” process—simply unthread the bottom half and use it to scoop water out of the nearest water source, close the bottle, and drink. The hollow fiber Microfilter safely removes 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa, delivers up to 2 liters of water per minute with a 1,000-liter lifespan, and can be cleaned (restoring flow-rate) by simply shaking the bottle. Prefer more colors or don't need the Microfilter quite yet? Get the .75L ($19.95) or 1L ($21.95) Platypus Meta Bottles. About Platypus in their own words.
