Platypus Quickdraw Microfilter System


This product is unavailable

The QuickDraw Microfilter System draws upon decades of expertise in filtration and hydration to provide the best user experience of any fill-and-squeeze water filter on the market. The easy-to-use system comes in two parts: the durable and taste-free 1L QuickDraw reservoir and the hollow fibre filter cartridge.

Weighing just 95 g and filtering up to 3L per minute, the QuickDraw system ensures quick and easy access to clean water on any trip. 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. With its inside/outside (I/O) dual-thread design, the QuickDraw filter cartridge securely adapts to Smartwater® bottles and other Platy bottles and reservoirs allowing you to develop your ideal system for you.


  • Ultralight & Compact: The entire system (filter + reservoir) weighs just 95 g and packs smaller than a rolled-up t-shirt.

  • Premium Reservoir: Made of a proprietary tri-layer film, the 1L QuickDraw reservoir is taste-free, durable and features a wide mouth and handle for easy filling at any water source.

  • 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™ Reservoir, Platy 2.0L Bottle, Platy SoftBottle™, Platy Water Tank 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.
