Safe Drinking Water From The Revive H2O Portable Water Filter Bottle
Firstly, my take on portable water filter bottles - we need them..! Simple as that.
They are the perfect companion for hunkering down and a definite must for any bug out situation.
In fact, don't leave home without one. If your out practising your bushcraft skills or just on leisurely hike, always have a means to drink safe, clean water with you.
Here's What You Get With
The Revive H2O
All Purpose Water Filter Bottle
The full kit contains:
- 1x 650ml blue transparent water bottle
- 1x screw top with drinking straw mouthpiece
- 1x drink lid seal with lanyard attachment
- 1x H2O micro filter
- 1x compact squeeze bottle bag
- 1x squeeze bottle drinking cap and seal
- 1x additional belt carry carabina
The main bottle is comprised of three sections:
- Bottle container - 650 ml
- Screw on lid with saleable drinking nozzle
- Removable main water filter
The main bottle also has a handy strap and carabiner to secure the bottle with.
There has definitely been some thought put into this filter bottle, as it has all the features you would expect and more.
To start with the bottle has a large open neck making collecting water very easy, as easy as one scoop and its full, might seem irrelevant, but very handy.
The system of seals makes this a very watertight bottle, again very necessary and pretty much leak proof.
£27 - 1500 litrs
There is also a very good addition of a compact, lightweight squeeze bag which simply screws onto the main filter.
This extra item now gives you choices when considering weight and size in your backpack. (for those who go 'ultra light').
A good idea really as it will fold down to a very small size and could even be carried in your pocket.
The squeeze bag is going to be ideal for children and toddlers who would find it hard to suck through the nozzle.
Simply squeezing the bag allows the water to flow - also ideal for filtering water for cooking.
The choice is yours whether you carry either one or both. They will both work to give you a container to hold the 'unfiltered' water in.
About The Water Filter
The filter itself is 175mm long by 35mm diameter and comprises of the carbon filter at the top, and the UF hollow fibre filter at the bottom.
It then fits into the drink cap by simply pushing in and seals via two O rings.
The double seal is very good and requires a little bit of clean water around the seals to ensure it slides in cleanly and fully.

- Removes 99.9% of water borne parasitic protozoa and bacteria.
- Blocks ALL particles above 0.2 microns
- Carbon filter softens water and removes odour
- 1500 litres of water filtration when properly maintained
- Filter has passed SGS, FDA and BPA Free tests.
- Filter can be easily removed to use the bottle for drinks other than water if required.

The Revive H2O Filter Water Bottle uses a coconut activated carbon filter as well as the latest hollow fibre UF membrane filter technology.
The two filters are simply pressed together and seal with 'o' rings.
The top part, the carbon filter helps to also soften tap water and improve the taste.
In the area where I live, there is a noticeable odour to our tap water - when I tested it, the H2O definitely removed the funny smells.
As you can see in my video, this water filter is certainly something well worth considering for your survival kit - it will work perfectly at home or in the wild.
I think the capacity of 1500 litres of clean, safe, drinkable water for under £27 is a fantastic price.
Realistically, if you used this every day, and filter 4 litres of water per day, it is going to last you one whole year.!!
That fact alone should be enough to convince you to buy one - actual cost is 1.8p per litre....!
Add that to its versatility of being able to give you that safe drinking water from any old puddle, pond or water source just laying around, definitely makes this a 'must have' prepper buy.
This is a seriously good bit of prepping and survival kit.
I now use my H2O water filter bottle on all my hiking and camp trips.
