RapidPure purification reduces more contaminants than any other recreational filter. Another great feature is the weight. Coming in at less than two ounces, the RapidPure Pioneer is a great all around filter for camping and hiking. We’ve tried water purification systems here at 50 Campfires, and none have produced better tasting water more quickly than Pioneer.
USDOJ Uses RapidPure in Jungles of Columbia
A couple of my colleagues have recently returned from some training in the jungles of Colombia. They used the RapidPure and it worked wonderfully. I have also recently shown the RapidPure system we used to a few different Personnel Recovery Course classes and explained that the RapidPure UltraCeram Technology is likely the most versatile and capable purification system available anywhere. This is especially so because of RapidPure’s ability to remove waterborne viruses.
I have worked for Outward Bound, NOLS and currently work for Wilderness Therapy in Utah. I am an avid outdoor adventurer having experienced the backcountry in North, Central and South America. I am an outdoor professional that trusts and relies on RapidPure.
I ordered the RapidPure Scout Hydration system for my husband and I for our trip to the Grand Canyon. I mentioned to you that 7 of us were going to run Rim to Rim to Rim in one day. We did it!
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for all your help and advice on the filtration system. The RapidPure system worked brilliantly and we had no problems!
Review of the Explorer system – 5 stars out of 5!!!
Flows well, clean and clear. Tried it out on a pre-season overnight. Bag is tough and well constructed, cap seals were leak proof and seemed durable. Water flow is as advertised so quick I had to hustle to get bottles in line for filling.
Water was clean and clear but source water was a fast running clear Sierra stream so it was not an extreme test. You have to pay attention after cleaning the filter chamber — properly align and lock the halves.
I also applied an ultra-thin layer of petroleum jelly on the o-ring just to make assembly smooth and to protect it.
DIY Trailblazer: Amazing Technology
Reading about the technology – this one gets viruses by attracting them to the filter fibers by an electrical charge – sheer genius. I tested mine with a hose and siphon setup as discussed on the web page. Flows fast and clean. I am amazed at the simplicity and have added one to my emergency preparedness / earthquake response kit. My plan is gathering surface water at a nearby lake and filtering so this fits the bill. With the virus filtering capability I wont have to worry if the lake has people bathing, wading or otherwise putting pressure on the resource after the disaster.
I’ve been using a 3.5″ filter in a DIY squeeze bag configuration, basically like the Sawyer Squeeze. It works great with your filter being a lot less fussy with regards to back flushing and such.
I love this system. I got this unit when they first came out. As a professional fishing guide who does overnight camping with my clients, I can use water directly from the river for all my needs. I have filtered some very “suspect” water through this and it comes out crystal clear and tastes great. It is fast and easy to use. I added the filter extensions which makes filtering even faster. This eliminates the need to carry water with my limited drift boat space. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who does camping of any kind. Great job RapidPure!!
Excellent, lightweight filter that removes VIRUSES!!!
Compared to other filters such as the Sawyer One squeeze filter, the RapidPure removes viruses and many organic compounds and has a FASTER flow rate–as much as 10 times faster! Rated at 6,000 gallons*, the smallest Scout model filters at a rate of 1.2 liters/minute using just gravity, and while not back flushable it can filter one gallon/day for 6,000 days, or over 16 years… (As with all filters, very dirty/silty water will clog the filter more quickly.) This filter is a big time winner and game changer!
Perfect for any outdoor activity!
This filter really is fantastic. I received one as a gift and used it on several camping/float trips in Arkansas. I placed it directly inline on my Camelbak bladder’s hose and it worked like a charm. The flow rate is great and only adds a negligible amount of resistance to flow on my the water bladder, so you don’t feel like you are sucking your brains out just trying to stay hydrated. I also really like the fact that it filters out viruses as well as bacteria and cysts. I’ve never had a problem with it and would highly recommend. In fact, I just passed mine on to a friend who is deploying to Afghanistan and will be purchasing a new one shortly!
Picked up a RapidPure filtered bottle at Prepcon V from the good folks at Paramount Tactical Solutions. I love this thing. I am getting back into shape (fingers crossed) and our water authority “flushed” the system. Well, the water tastes like dirty laundry water. Doesn’t seem to faze the 750 ml bottle. There’s no after taste like you get with bottled water and I can’t remember when water didn’t leave a “film” in my mouth. This filter has cured all of that.
Here’s a picture of Madison, my 12 year old daughter, on our survival camping trip this past weekend. She is drinking water scooped straight out of a creek right by the Ocklawaha River in the Sunnyhill Restoration Area by the Ocala National Park. Of course, she tried it only after she saw me drink from it first (I used the straw with the filter directly), but we both came to the same conclusion … looks like, feels like, and tastes just like regular water! No unusual odor, no after taste, no funny feelings in the gut. A few of our fellow campers who saw us were amazed, but it just reinforced and proved to me that the RapidPure filter was a keeper for my PSK.
I just got my Intrepid water bottle with filter up and running! I love it! Thank you for the great product!
