    I’ve had my SteriPEN Adventurer for several years and done several months of pike packing in the Colorado Rockies and this is the best form of purification I’ve ever used (I grew up in the Colorado mountains and used iodine then pumps in various forms). This is simply lighter and far simpler. I’ve used it in cattle country, after filtering through a bandana, without issue. My one suggestion is to make the shorter time be one click rather than two (which should be the longer time).

      Hi Hilander! Great to hear from you! Just wanted to explain the click order is a safety feature … if a user mistakenly clicks only once, we prefer them to over treat rather than under treat, thus one click indicates one liter in some SteriPEN models. SteriPEN models with LED displays don’t require this safety feature as the user can verify the selected treatment size. Thanks again and please feel free to share your adventures with us at
