our team of backpacking
testers have run AquaMira through the paces from the Rockies to the
Himalayas on some rather strenuous expeditions. It's the most advanced
backpacking and travel water purification product to come along in quite
awhile, and we highly recommend it. AquaMira is registered with the
EPA and has been approved by the Canadian government , of course. But
it has also passed the "real world" of backpacking tests we
ran it through.
At $13 to $18, the price is excellent for the majority of backpacking
trips. These two 1-ounce bottles treat 30 gallons of water. Compare
that to the $50 to $120 for most backpacking filters. And this stuff
doesn't clog or break or take up much room in a pack. That's what our
backpacking testers liked the most. I carry enough for two weeks of
wilderness backpacking in my 2-inch pocket on my backpacking shorts
- and it weighs less than 5 ounces... Purchase
AquaMira is extremely potent, yet safe. It kills everything. As part
of our research we interviewed a college professor with a PhD in chemical
engineering, says chlorine dioxide is the best and safest water treatment
for ANY kind of water treatment. It's been used in city water treatment
plants for years, but until recently was too unstable for use in backpacking.
With AquaMira, that has changed.
For most people, it's the taste that matters. Despite the name "chlorine
dioxide", this isn't like chlorine bleach, or for that matter,
chlorine. Chemically, it's different. There is very little, or no taste
associated with it. When you drink spring water treated with AquaMira,
it actually tastes like spring water. Little or no chlorine taste. No
iodine taste. Many backpacking filters are impregnated with iodine because
that is the only way they can kill the tiny viruses that slip through.
Not so with AquaMira. In fact, our testers found that it actually improves
the taste of stale, stagnant or foul tasting water.
All of that together makes it our top pick for price, effectiveness,
ease of use and taste. In fact, we got enough requests that we decided
to sell it just above the wholesale price, and throw in a subscription
to our "World Giardia Backpacking Water Report"
