MSR® Trail Base™ Water Filter Kit Offers Incomparable Hydration Versatility Product News

Need a quick hydration hit on the trail, but a larger volume filtration system for camp? The MSR® Trail Base™ is the next evolution in gravity filtration, combining what's best from the new, ultra-light and small TrailShot™ Microfilter with the reliable, high-volume MSR AutoFlow™ filtration system. This single water filter system transforms to meet all your clean-water needs—from large-volume base camp filtering to instant hydration straight from the source when you're on the move. Whether you're embarking on a leisurely backpacking trip, or heading out on a fast-paced adventure like trail running or mountain biking, the Trail Base Water Filter Kit provides the filter mode you need to make it successful.

The filter kit is a dual experience filtration system, converting from the efficient, instant hydration solution of the small trail filter while you're on a trail mission, to the convenience and simplicity of a gravity powered, high-volume filtration system at camp. The trail filter simply, quickly, and seamlessly connects into the dirty water reservoir and a clean water storage bag to become the full gravity filtration system.

"The Trail Base gives me exactly what I need, whether I'm training for a multi-week expedition or camping with my family," said Eric Larsen, polar explorer and MSR ambassador. "When adventures are your profession, having a kit that perfectly adapts to multiple scenarios is incredibly valuable and the Trail Base does exactly that."

The Trail Base Water Filter Kit uses high-performance, rigorously tested hollow fiber filtration. In camp and trail mode the Trail Base meets the highest safety standards for removal of waterborne bacteria and protozoa and comes with the assurance of MSR's world-class water research lab, which painstakingly batch-tests the entire line of MSR water filtration systems. The TrailBase is available in selected retailers now.
