The designers at Aquamira have come up with the ultimate pump free filter system, that is small compact, easy to use, and will compete with the "big boys." This unit was designed and packaged specifically for the military.

The Frontier Pro will connect to almost anything, using the universal connectivity system. It will connect directly to any water bottle with a 28mm opening such a the standard water bottle. Using the tube connection feature you can connect to the drink tube of your hydration system. or drink from any open container or water source. Since you can drink directly from the unit there is no chance of confusing inlet and outlet tubes resulting in possible cross contamination. The Frontier Pro can also be set up in a "gravity flow" mode to filter water unattended while you pursue other activities. The patented Bite Me valve provides drip free easy drinking and the integrated cap and Cap Strap™ keeps the drinking end clean and contamination free.

The New Frontier Pro has an improved filter, the Series III GR Line Filter, which can be replaced. It is tested to remove 99.9% of Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Activated Coconut Shell Carbon reduces waterborne chemicals, improves taste and eliminates offensive odors. Miraguard™ antimicrobial technology suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold and mildew within the filter media. Each filter will filter 50 gallons of water. Also includes 3 replaceable pre-filters to remove particles before filtration.

This Olive Drab unit comes specially packaged in a very robust 5 mil. gusseted , zip closure bag. The top portion of the bag must be torn off for initial opening. The unit can then be secured in the bag using the zip closure. Weighs 2.5 z.

Note: This filter is not certified to remove bacteria or viruses. For maximum protection, use the Frontier Pro in conjunction with some form of water purification tablets (see below).

Amber Glass Vials

Re-Packaging Amber Glass Vials

These Amber Glass Vials are ideal for re-packaging Potable Aqua iodine tablets so they will fit in mini survival kits. Although the manufacturer of Potable Aqua does not recommend re-packaging the tablets because it degrades the shelf life from 4 years to one year, many people building survival kits have been doing it for years. You just have to remember to restock your bottles once a year. These bottles are Amber, like the bottle used by the factory, and have special Teflon caps which are required for packaging iodine (Note: the caps may be black, blue, or white - no choice). The bottles are shown above in comparison to the original Potable Aqua bottle. The smallest, to the right, is a 5/8 Dram bottle and will hold 20 tablets with room for cotton in the top. The center bottle, a 1 Dram, will hold 40 tablets with room for cotton in the top. Both bottles fit easily in an "Altoids" tin type survival kit.
