Hydropack Water Purifier Review

Gear Review: Hydropack Water Purifier

Buy at Amazon

While at the National Prepper and Survialist Expo I saw a really cool product, and the vendor (Deployed Logix) was nice enough to give me this Hydropack Water Purifier to review and test out.  I have read about this technology before, but I have not had the opportunity to review it before.

According to the manufacturer:

The HydroPack was designed for its ease of use, simply put the filter into virtually any dirty water and the filter goes to work making a clean drink.

The self hydrating pouch produces 12-17 fl. Oz. of sports drink.

The filter uses a passive osmotic process so it never clogs, requires no pumping and filters down to the atomic level (3-5 angstroms – which is .3-.5 billionths of a meter) so the filter removes even the smallest viruses to the same purity of a complicated reverse osmosis machine.

  • Forward osmosis filter requires no pumping, works in any virtually and water, even muddy water. Produces a sports drink for improved hydration.
  • Meets or surpasses reductions for bacteria, viruses and cysts as specified by the EPA for water purifiers
  • Easiest of our filters to use, simply put the HydroPack into the dirty water and it starts producing a clean drink.
  • The highest purity level of any personal filter, non-clogging filter produces a sports drink for improved hydration.
I simply dumped the pack in a bowl of dirty water and went to bed, when I got up, I just stabbed the included straw into the inflated package and drank the contents.
It tasted like a sports drink, and I did not have any negative views on the taste – my wife even drank some.
I would probably keep some alcohol wipes in my kit to wipe off the location your going to insert the straw to reduce cross contamination, but other than that, I think this has a place in a bug out bag.  I would not keep these in bulk for bugging in due to cost, but I think they are very useful for on the go kits.
