Thousands of outdoor enthusiasts all over the world have trusted SteriPEN for many years. SteriPEN’s patented UV water purification technology was first introduced to hikers and campers at REI in 1999.
The first and fastest portable UV water purifier, SteriPEN’s speed, effectiveness and portability have impressed end users and media alike. Backpacker Magazine, Newsweek, and the Today Show have featured SteriPEN as a powerful, user-friendly alternative to pumps, chemicals and filters. TIME Magazine named the SteriPEN one of the “Best Inventions of the Year” in 2001.
When camping or hiking, it's convenient to draw water from fresh water sources rather than carry a supply. To be safe for drinking, water should be filtered or purified.
Water filters can be difficult to use and inconvenient. Iodine or other additives affect the taste and are time consuming. Ultraviolet light is the preferred method for outdoor adventures because it purifies water quickly and conveniently without affecting taste.
Even a stream that looks clean may not be. Microorganisms from animal and human waste and are spread by water run-off. Since we can’t visually detect contaminated water, it’s best to protect yourself with a water purifier.
