Platypus Meta™ Bottle Delivers Safe Drinking Water on the Go

SEATTLE, WA (December 17, 2015) – Access to clean drinking water has never been more convenient with the introduction of the Platypus Meta™ Bottle, available in Spring 2016 as either a standard water bottle (.75L, $19.95; 1L, $21.95), or a personal water filter system (1L Meta Bottle + Microfilter, $49.95).

The innovative Meta Bottle has a hybrid, 2-part design, with a hard upper half and a compactible lower half, combining the ease of drinking from a hard bottle with the packable flexibility of a soft bottle. The Meta Bottle also has an optional Microfilter accessory, which turns the bottle into a personal water filter for safe drinking water in the backcountry.

When used as a water filter, the Meta Bottle is both fast and easy. The pump-free design saves time and energy, providing filtered water with a simple “Scoop, close, drink” process—simply unthread the bottom half and use it to scoop water out of the nearest water source, close the bottle, and drink. The hollow fiber Microfilter rapidly filters out bacteria and protozoa, and delivers up to 2 liters of water per minute with a 1,000-liter lifespan. Further, the Microfilter is field-maintainable to ensure optimal performance. 

The Meta Bottle will debut at Winter Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, January 7-10, in booth #20027.

Platypus Meta Bottle Features:

  • Easy to disassemble and clean
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Packable – compacts to half its size
  • Easy to use – simply tip, squeeze and sip 
  • Upgradeable to filter bottle system that removes 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa
  • Fast – filters up to 2L per minute
  • Long-lasting filter – the Microfilter has up to a 1,000-liter lifespan
  • Filter can be cleaned in the field with a fast, easy, and tool-free process
  • BPA-, BPS-, and phthalate-free materials
