    Question Water Purification while hiking and camping

    I am planning on doing some multi-day hikes/camps this year and I have never done this before. My big concern is having enough water and staying hydrated since I obviously can't carry enough to last the whole time.



    I'm wondering what some of you experienced hikers do for water on extended trips? Are you using purification tablets? Or some sort of filtration system?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Check out www.seychelle.com also. We use their products to filter our tap water, and I believe they may have some options for hiking as well.

    Aquamira drops. Lightweight and have never failed me.

    I used to use iodine drops but that was 15 years ago and I'm sure there is something much better
