Platypus QuickDraw Microfilter


Like the QuickDraw System but without the reservoir, the easy-to-use QuickDraw Micro-filter will revolutionise your filtration system. With its inside/outside (I/O) dual-thread design, the QuickDraw filter cartridge securely adapts to Smartwater® bottles, most Platy bottles and reservoirs and many common soda/water bottles allowing you to develop your ideal personalised kit. Weighing just 62g and filtering up to 3L per minute.

The QuickDraw allows simple fill-and-squeeze water filtration during ultralight hiking and backpacking trips. You can either shake-to-clean the hollow fibre filter or perform a tool-free back-flush to ensure the fast flow rates will stick around for the duration of your trips. Design elements like the attached clean side cap and grippy-but-not-sticky filter housing eliminate frustrations like leaking water in the pack, lost small parts, and dirt-caked gear.

  • Ultralight & Compact: The filter weighs just 62g and packs small for easy access anywhere on or in your packing system.

  • Build Your Own System: The I/O dual-thread design allows the filter cartridge to natively attach to the QuickDraw Reservoir, Smartwater® bottles, the Platy Hoser, most Platy bottles and certain common 28mm PET soda/water bottles.

  • Ultrafast Flow Rates: Hollow fibre cartridge filters up to 3L per minute with normal squeeze pressure.

  • Easy, Effective Cleaning: Shake-to-clean or tool-free back-flush methods make for quick and easy cleaning of the filter, so you can have fast filtration for your entire trip.

  • Thoughtfully Rugged Design: Attached clean side cap flips open and creates a secure seal when closed, while the soft-touch filter housing is grippy even when wet and won’t pick up dirt from the ground.

  • Hollow Fibre Advantage: Hundreds of tiny hollow fibres enable the micro-filter to filter water faster than traditional filter media.

  • Effective: Each micro-filter is individually tested to ensure it meets all EPA & NSF guidelines for the removal of 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa*.

  • *This includes Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Salmonella and Cholera.
