Pioneer® System

Quick Overview

Whether you're hiking, traveling, or preparing for natural disasters, the RapidPure® Pioneer Straw gives you the power to filter and purify water in an ultralight, portable water filter. Weighing less than 2 ounces, this pocket-sized straw comes with its own carry bag and is the ideal backpacking water filter, as it's safe, fast, and easy to use. Unlike microfilters that rely on pore size to simply filter out bacteria and sediment, RapidPure water treatment actually purifies water using electroadsorption, removing up to 99.9999% of not just bacteria and sediment, but also viruses, protozoa, cysts, chemicals, and more. You can draw water through the Pioneer Straw up to 8 times faster than with traditional filters, making this fast water filter also the best water purifier for personal use. RapidPure continues to work even after it has been frozen, giving you peace of mind if the temperature suddenly drops. With RapidPure water purifiers, quenching your thirst is safer, faster, easier, and better tasting.

* Tap water is standardly utilized to rate the capacity of water filters/purifiers and can provide a misleading indication of actual usable filter life in the field. Real world conditions vary greatly. Our testing has found that when using the same source of water supply, RapidPure will ow faster, capture more contaminants, and will often last as long or longer than the competition.
