Offered in two models: the Complete Kit and the Bottle Kit, both kits feature a 2.0L Dirty collection reservoir with Quick Release fitting, hollow-fiber filter, hoses and a patent-pending Universal Bottle Adapter. The Universal Bottle Adapter is compatible with most water bottles, and also allows users to filter directly into hydration system drink tubes, re-filling reservoirs without needing to remove them from packs.
"The GravityWorks 2.0L Filter System simplifies outdoor water filtration. It’s easy; scoop up the dirty water, attach the appropriate adapter, hold the dirty bag above your hydration pack or bottle to quickly filter water directly into it," said Erik Flink, division director of Hydration and Water Treatment at Cascade Designs. "It’s incredibly fast, easy, is field maintainable with a four-second backflush to clean the filter and works with your system, the way you want it to."
The Complete Kit option adds a 2.0L Platy bottle with push/pull cap adapter This adapter also has an insert that works directly with hydration systems, letting customers filter directly into most shut-off valves without removal from the pack. All options allow the user to backflush in the field in just a few seconds, ensuring trouble free reliability for the life of the filter.
