So Much More than just Great Tasting Water! The New Aquamira® Water Filter Bottle provides a lightweight, easy-to-use supply of safe drinking water. Aquamira CR Filtration TechnologyTM not only removes chlorine, bad tastes and odors, but it also removes over 99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia; the two leading causes of waterborne illnesses.
Designed for Ease of Use: The newly designed Aquamira Water Bottle is ergonomically shaped to fit comfortably in your hand, in standard cup holders, or bicycle cages. The additional "Finger-Grip" carry loop allows you to carry the bottle with one finger, or secure it to backpacks. Constructed of BPA free LDPE plastic, the Aquamira water bottle is easy to squeeze, when higher flow rates are desired. The patented BITE-METM valve provides high flow rates, leak-free shut-off and will not pinch your tongue.
New! "No-Tip-To-Drink" Design: The new 100 gallon capacity Aquamira Filter Capsule boasts several improvements over the "Drop-In" filter design. The capsule is easy to install, ultrasonically sealed, and interfaces directly with the BITE-ME valve, making a seal between the cap and filter unnecessary. Venting is independent of the filter, eliminating any chance of cross contamination. Since the filter draws from the bottom of the bottle, there is no need to tip the bottle to drink. Just bite and squeeze to enjoy fresh filtered water anytime.

Aquamira® CR Filtration TechnologyTM, consists of a formulation of activated coconut shell carbon, porous plastic and other proprietary filter aids. The components are molded under controlled heat and pressure in a process know as "sintering". The result is a solid, but porous block structure with uniform pore distribution, high flow rates and long filter life.
Patented BITE METM Valve, provides a comfortable, high flow, leak free, user interface with the bottle. The BITE-ME valve is activated by biting or pinching the valve. The ergonomic design guides your teeth to the perfect position for maximum flow. The BITE-ME valve can be positioned to best suit the user, and is protected by a super tough Tritan® dust cap. Positive shut-off prevents leaks even in airplane overhead bins. (US Patent #6039305)
