Thread: Camelbak All Clear @ SHOT 2012

    Default Camelbak All Clear @ SHOT 2012

    The Camelbak All Clear water purification system (as introduced at SHOT 2012) will be available at retailers in March 2012. It appears to be a nice compact self contained system that uses UV to render the little waterborne uglies unable to kick you in the proverbial guts. However, I personally believe that the debris screen should be included with the package but I'm not a marketing kind of guy.

    To be honest it seems to be just a larger, bulkier, heavier, more complicated version of the Steripen line of products.

    At least the Steripen line is able to adapt to different bottle types while the Camelbak version is restricted to their bottle.

    Nice video but my video had a prettier presenter. CLICK THE PIC baby...

    I agree about the limitations but it is a nice alternative...

    Clicked on it & it took me to a photobucket page that even when I turned off Addblock plus showed nothing.

    Nice product.

    Does the bottle contain a UV-C filter so we are not exposed directly to the light source during decontamination?

    Pretty sure the Camelbak lids screw onto any standard Nalgene threaded bottle (that said I haven't watched the video, they may have changed it, but I know my "better bottle" lids go straight onto my Nalgenes, and vice-versa)

    I am not sure of any UVC filter in the body of the bottle but it is a concern in that during the demo and as she was holding the cap section with the light toward us you may have noticed that I began to turn the light area down and asked her to turn the light off.

    Rechargeable is great, but what if it dies while I'm out? I'd prefer it if I could carry back-up cr123's...seeing as I already have a few with me when Im in the woods....

    edit: looks like rechargeability is just an option, not sure though.
