I don't know about you, but I love hiking and camping. Our whole family used to hike a local mountain when we lived in North Carolina. Since we moved our hiking trips are not as frequent, but we still enjoy an occasional trip. One of the obvious necessities when planning an overnight or extended trip is how to keep fresh water with you. Problem Solved! I was sent the Go Berkey Kit for review from Big Berkey Water Filters. This is a really neat set, perfect for the outdoorsy person! Designed for backpackers, hikers, campers, college students, etc. this kit comes with everything you need for fresh, clean water. It comes with a Sport Berkey water bottle that has a purifier built-in...attached to the lid. With this bottle, you can simply fill the bottle, and it purifies the water as you drink! All water goes through the filter and up the straw! Then, for when you're at your campsite (or during emergencies, maybe even use at a college dorm, etc.) you have the Go Berkey System. This system purifies up to 1 gallon of water an hour. Basically you have a lower and upper chamber, and the purification element. The element screws into the upper chamber, which you then fill with cold or room-temperature water. Turn it upside down into the lower chamber, and the water drips through the filter and into the container!

"The Go Berkey® system removes viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces unhealthy heavy metals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
Constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel the Go Berkey® Kit comes complete with one Black Berkey®Purification Element, one generic Sport Berkey® portable water purifier bottle and a vinyl carry case This system has a storage capacity of about 1 quart (.95 liters) and when in use it stands 14” in height with a diameter of 4”. The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 10” in height. Weighing a mere 2.4 pounds the Go Berkey® Kit is lightweight, easily transportable and perfect for active people on the go."
