PurTrek is the first of its kind to combine two must have hiking products into one quick and easy to access water filtration system. 

Built with the finest lightweight products, PurTrek's 2-in-1 system makes other outdoor filters obsolete. 

It allows the user to have not only a coveted carbon fiber trekking pole but also an award-winning Hollow Fiber water filtration pump in one AWESOME product. These 2 items bought separately can cost as much as $250!!  

The PurTrek H20 Pole produces MORE water per pump them most outdoor systems.

---  Easy-to-use

Quick and Easy on-demand access for you to hydrate in seconds. No tools or assembly needed and always in your hand. 

  • First, simply align base with arrows and pull to open bottom filter. Insert your medical grade silicone drinking tube into the handle top. 
  • Next, place the tip of your trekking pole into the water.
  • Third, Unlock the pump and begin pumping cold fresh purified water! 

--- Two Stage Filtration System

Next, insert pole in water source, attach the drinking hose and begin pumping fresh purified water. When finished hydrating or filling container simply lock the pump handle down and continue your outdoor adventure

With our proprietary inlet housing we have you covered literally. No need to worry about dust, mud, dirt or anything else getting in your pole.

--- More Water. Faster. 

Carry less weight and leave those heavy water bottles at home and filter on the go. PurTrek's filtration media Hollow Fiber is the same proven tech used by the largest and most successful brands on the market today with 99.99% filtration of waterborne bacteria, protozoa, and microplastic. PurTrek also provides 3x MORE water per pump then its competitors and also filters up to 500 liters per filter. 

--- The Development Story

I'm Kyle Stringham the creator of Purtrek! I've lived in Utah at the base of the Wasatch Mountain range for most my life, I've always loved being in the great outdoors. Whether I'm with family or friends enjoying new exciting outdoor adventures, clean accessible water has always been an issue. I've always found carrying water to be troublesome at times being a father of two active kids carrying the weight of the warm water on my back or in the container sloshing around only to run out. 

Two years ago while leading a Boy Scout Troop on a 21-mile day hike in the western backcountry of Yellowstone. I was crossing a river and was holding multiple trek poles and water filtration systems and parts. When I reached the other side to begin filtering gallons and gallons of water for the scouts I was met with confusing parts pieces and hoses to figure out how it all worked.  

As I worked through the madness of filtration systems it came to me. What's always in your hand when trekking and has always just had one function. Hiking stick or pole! And what do I always dread or put off until last minute? Hydrating! Solutions: A quick and dependable yet simplistic approach to hydration. "A trekking pole combined with an inline water filtration pump that can draw pumped water from the end and out the top ready to drink.  

We spent the last 2 years developing this product with multiple prototypes and patents that would stand up to the test of challenges regular outdoor use but would be an extremely high-quality durable product we have come know our great outdoor brands for. PurTrek's was developed in several different versions until this final version was engineered and designed with "Swarm Product Design Studio" in Salt Lake, Utah. They are an industry leading team of nerdy designers & engineers, and starry-eyed dreamers who live to build.  

     

This collaboration has brought PurTrek to a level we are proud and confident to offer to you.

Risks and challenges

PurTrek is an aspiring outdoor brand that takes great pleasure in producing innovative quality products. My team understands we are far from the finish in our journey to bring PurTrek to the global masses.

We have brought on a very experienced team that have successfully delivered many products to the market sold by companies today. Our filters are purchased off the shelf and customized to fit and have been tested and proven by these independent companies to remove the necessary amounts contaminants.
We have worked for so long to bring you a product you can not only depend on but absolutely love to use as well. We will begin manufacturing based on the current design to meet our target deadline. With your support, we can quickly scale and expedite the manufacturing and production process so that we can get the PurTrek into the hand's of thousands, and you can be proud to know that you made it happen. While we have budgeted sufficient resources and time, we know that there might be things outside of our control and current visibility.

Shipping in Spring of 2019 - We plan to place the manufacturing order by November 2019/December 2019 - We'll iterate as we move forward, review samples and do our quality control in January and February. March 2019 is the shipping estimate we have worked out with our suppliers and making revisions and getting the first shipment for you to have your PurTrek on the trail in Spring for use, just in time for summer adventures. We don't anticipate any timeline issues as PurTrek was designed with most parts & products being off the shelf for dependable, reliable, proven results. However, if by the chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterward. You, our backers, mean the world to us and this will not be possible without you and we look forward to bring you one of the most revolutionary products in the outdoor world "we feel" in years.

We promise to work rigorously for our loyal backers throughout this process. Thanks for your support! :)
