The MSR Thru-Link In-Line Microfilter is a compact and lightweight water filter which can be attached directly to a hydration bladder to provide clean water on the go. The Thru-Link design has already been in active use by the US military for a decade so you can be sure its a tried and tested design.
The Thru-Link uses two stages of filtration, the first is through 0.2 micron hollow fibers which remove particulates, microplastics and pathogens (it does not remove all water bourne viruses. For this you usually use a chemical additive to kill the viruses). Then the water passes through activated carbon which reduces chemicals, tastes and odors. There is no integrated pump so you will need to move the water through by squeezing from a bladder or bottle. With a high flow rate of 1.2 liters per minute the Thru-Link will filter water as fast as you can drink it, if not faster!
Constructed from rugged ABS plastic the Thru-Link is a dependable filter which is cleanable in the field with a cartridge life of 1000 Liters.
