Our latest Collective Reward giveaway comes from the team at Grayl in Seattle, who’ll be setting up one randomly selected member of our Bikepacking Collective with one of their innovative titanium UltraPress water filters, a $199 value for our lucky winner. They call it “the most versatile water purifier ever dreamt, let alone built,” and based on Miles’ recent review (find that linked in the Related Content grid at the bottom of this post), the UltraPress may well be worthy of that title.
As the first titanium filter bottle on the market, the UltraPress Ti offers an unparalleled strength-to-weight ratio. At its heart is the 0.5L water filter and purifier bottle that offers protection from 99.99% of viruses, 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.9% of protozoan cysts including Rotavirus, Hepatitis A, Norovirus, Giardiasis, Cryptosporidium, E. Coli, Cholera, Salmonella, Dysentery, and more. It also protects against particulates, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals. You can drink directly from it in bottle mode, and the outer titanium cup can be used to heat water for cooking on a fire or camp stove, making it a versatile three-part system that packs neatly into a relatively compact package that measures around 9.5″ (240mm) tall and weighs 14.1 ounces (400g).
The UltraPress Ti offered in four muted colors with laser-engraved topographic art and features a paracord D-ring loop for filling in situations where there’s a risk of losing the bottle. It’s designed to fit in any pack pocket or cupholder, so you can bring it with you anywhere, on or off the bike, and the replaceable filter cartridge is designed to last around 300 presses, purifying roughly 40 gallons (150 liters) of water.
