Hydration Tech, Inc. X-Pack

Here' s an interesting idea in water filtration/purification I read about yesterday here:

and here's the manufacturer's website:

and it looks like Cabela's has them for about half the price of the other Internet retailers here:

All in all an interesting product. It uses forward osmosis (FO) to filter out all the bad stuff and if you read the review on you'll see just what it takes to choke out the filter.

The upside is that's it's dead simple to get potable water from really nasty stuff. The downside is the lifespan of the product--only 10 days. It's a bit slow to process but you could load the dirty water into the unit, throw the unit into a backpack, and it'd be ready to drink when you got where you were going.
