Lifesaver Liberty Portable Water Purifier | Review

We take a look at the LifeSaver Liberty Portable Water Purifier. The world's' first and only portable water purifier which is a bottle with an inline pump

Getting a drink can be a bit of effort in the wild. No doubt you’ve brought a bottle or two with you, but if you run out of water when you’re out and about, what’s your next step?

You could lean towards a mini portable filter like a Sawyer or Lifestraw, but there’s an element of risk with these, particularly in some parts of the world, as they can’t totally get rid of everything that’s bad for you – viruses for instance.

The solution lies with this, the LifeSaver Liberty. The world’s’ first and only portable water purifier which is a bottle with an inline pump combined, it’s capable of removing 99.99 per cent of viruses, bacteria and cysts from any water.

The combination of filter and bottle into one system means you can fill it up with clean H2o before leaving for the day and drink away as normal, and when you’ve finished, you won’t have to carry an empty bottle around for the rest of the trip. Instead you can just refill it at absolutely any water source.

To filter, you simply unscrew the top, dip it into the source, close it up and then pump the top lever a few times. Then to drink, you just flick a little valve and the water flows out in a gentle spray – so there’s no sucking involved.

There’s also an added 5ft hose accessory which can be dropped into a source to remove and filter as much water as is required, so you can essentially filter big quantities in one go.

The filtration system on this bottle is the same advanced system used on LifeSaver’s original bottle, a product which was developed for use in disaster-struck areas. This evolution is far, far smaller and lighter, while just as easy to use.

Overall, it’s a fantastic option for hikers, particularly backpackers, and generally for anyone who hates the inconvenience and one-use nature of a regular water bottle in the outdoors. It’s a great, reliable, fun piece of gear.

Tester’s Verdict

“Simple, effective. Easy to fill, easy to filter and easy to, err, drink from. Which is the most important bit. It’s not the smallest bits of kit, but it does the job it’s meant to perfectly.” – Will Renwick, OM Editor.
