With a LifeSaver bottle, you can forever say goodbye to packing, transporting or wasting bottled water when you’re going off grid, camping, trekking or back-packing. The release of the new LifeSaver Liberty bottle – a portable water filter bottle with an inline pump – you can store, filter and consume up to 14oz of water, on the move, as and when, you need it.
The new bottle uses the same advanced filtration technology as Lifesaver’s original bottle. This technology has been relied on, for over 10 years, by humanitarian aid agencies and militaries around the world, in the most challenging conditions, such as disaster zones and crisis situations. It removes 99.9999% bacteria, 99.999% virus and 99.99% cysts.
For the geeks out there, like me, here’s the scientific bit! It’s certified to exceed the full NSF/ANSI P231 test standards against General Test Water and Challenge Test Water type 3 (simulated sewage) and the WHO2011 ‘Highly protective tier’ drinking water standards. You can check out Liberty’s testing credentials here.

Adaptable Screw Head

• Screws straight onto a Nalgene wide-mouthed bottle
• Filters directly from one bottle to the other for convenience

Easy to Use
• Utilizes a simple hand pump – even a child can operate
• Creates air pressure inside the bottle

The filter cartridge cleans up to an impressive 530 Gallons – a whopping 2,000 litres – making this a very economical choice. But the technical designers didn’t stop there! An added feature, included in all LifeSaver products, is the built-in Fail Safe technology. Once the filter stops being effective, water cannot pass through the system at all, as all the pores in the membrane are blocked. This ensures any user is fully protected. And if this wasn’t enough, the filters are replaceable so the LifeSaver Liberty™ bottle could be an outdoor adventure companion for years to come.
