The Versa Flow was designed to be as versatile as you. It easily adapts to your lifestyle and can be screwed onto a plastic water bottle, used inline with your hydration pack, used as a gravity system or bucket filter, or can be used as a straw so you can drink directly from the water source.

The Versa Flow water filter is one of the lightest and most convenient personal water filters on the market. Weighing in at only 2 ounces you don’t have to worry about adding extra weight to your pack or try to find a dedicated spot for it. It will fit virtually anywhere. This water filter is perfect for backpacking, hiking, camping, travel, and emergency preparedness.

Although it is lightweight, it is heavy in features. Every filter is built to exacting standards and exceeds EPA standards for filtration. The Versa Flow has many tiny tubes called hollow fiber. Hollow fiber works through size exclusion. Meaning the hollow fiber tubes have thousands of tiny holes (0.1 microns) that block 99.9999% of harmful bacteria, Giardia, E. coli, protozoan cysts, Cryptosporidium and more. All of these organisms are too large to fit through the 0.1 micron holes. Some manufacturers filter the water through the core of the hollow fiber tubes, but this restricts water flow because only so much water can fit through the core opening. We filter water through the outside of the tubes by bending the hollow fiber. This dramatically increases the surface area and flow rate of the filter while protecting the filter integrity itself. If the core of the tubes become clogged from sediment on the competitors filter you can no use the filter. The Versa Flow allows you to be able to backflush the filter, clearing out all of the particulate and increasing the lifespan of the filter. If you consistently backflush the filter you can use it almost indefinitely. This means no additional filters, cartridges, pumps, iodine drops, or batteries to ever buy again.

The Versa Flow water filter does not remove chemicals or viruses from water. Generally viruses are not found in North America or in municipal water supplies around the world. Check out the Clear Flow if you are concerned about heavy metals or chemicals in your water. Lightweight and low cost, the Versa Flow should be in everyone's backpack, survival gear or travel bag.

    Attention: Does not come with any accessories.

    Posted by Jim on Mar 21st 2018

    I too was expecting the filter to come with some accessories for making a gravity system. Many reviews do suggest is does, and the bundle did weigh in heavily for me choosing this over the other alternatives. I only got the filter, which I have not yet tested. Kind of a letdown though.

    Kept us heathy

    Just used this as our only source of filtration and 2 of us just did a 20 day trip down a river. It filled hydration bags, filtered water for meals as well as drink for the entire trip. Low flow rate, gravity fed but no complaints.

    Did not come with accessories

    I was expecting to get the tubing, tube clamp and an adapter, with this filter but I only got the filter. Not sure why because I've seen multiple reviews where these extras were included.

    Easy and effective (I think)

    Posted by Kim on Jan 20th 2018

    It took me a bit of time to learn how to use this product. I thought I'd be able to suspend a quart bottle of unfiltered water from a tree and let gravity cause the water to filter through into a pot. Nope. Instead I use a couple of 20 oz soft drink bottles. Fill one with lake water, attach the filter, invert it, and squeeze the filtered water into the other bottle. Easy.

    I know that the water has gone from one bottle to the other. I guess I have to assume that the filter is actually doing something useful since the lake water I filter is probably clean enough to drink safely anyway!
