GEOPRESS™ PURIFIER: Clean Water, Anywhere in the World.
Make 24oz of safe purified drinking water in 8 seconds. For international travel & adventure. Fastest, most versatile purifier.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, January 10 2019 2:00 AM UTC +00:00.
Meet the fastest, most versatile water purifier in the world. No other portable purifier rivals the speed, ease-of-use and effectiveness of the GRAYL® GEOPRESS. In only seconds, GEOPRESS makes 24oz of clean, purified drinking water – anywhere in the world! Designed for international travel, it provides complete protection by removing all waterborne pathogens (virus, bacteria, protozoan cysts) and filtering chemicals, heavy metals, and even microplastics.
GEOPRESS™ is highly capable and intuitive. We packed it with innovative features to maximize utility, versatility and performance, while not sacrificing form or function. The result is a powerful purifier that delivers unprecedented, unrivaled results and we are delighted to bring to Kickstarter.
Purification removes 99.99% of virus (e.g. Rotavirus, Norovirus, Hepatitis A), 99.9999% of bacteria (e.g. E coli, Salmonella, Dysentery), and 99.9% of protozoan cysts (e.g. Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Amoebae). We take water safety very seriously and rigorous quality control and testing process is thorough, intensive, expensive and worth every dime. Each batch of purifier cartridges we make are thoroughly tested and meet or exceed United States Environmental Protection Agency's National Drinking Water Standards
Essential tools you carry should look as good as they work. Our color lineup is inspired by locations, environments, and specific user tastes. Whether you like to lay low, or stand out, we designed a color palette that offers an attractive option for anyone.
Water makes for a slippery environment. That's why we equipped GEOPRESS with TopoGrip™ technology and strategically placed it on all heavy-use surfaces needing to be grasped. It's non-slip, tactile, durable and really grippy in the heat, cold and when wet.
The SimpleVent™ Spout Cap allows you to 'press and purify' water with the cap on. It keeps the spout clean, and protects clean water from the threat of cross-contamination (when near dirty water). During the purification process, simply twist the SimpleVent cap 1/2 turn to allow for air to escape.
The versatility and ease-of-use of GEOPRESS is ideal for international travel and outdoor adventures. The convenience, efficiency and complete effectiveness of Fill. Press. Drink.™ is unmatched by any other water purifier (or filter). Allows anyone, anywhere, to drink from hotel sinks, beachside taco stands, public bathrooms and spigots, as well as rivers and lakes.
When we set out to design GEOPRESS, delivering on portability and convenience was integral and something we wouldn't compromise. It's perfectly sized at 24oz (710ml), and it's easy to pack, clip or carry. You'll be self-reliant, and just seconds away from making clean drinking water, anywhere.
For travelers, adventure junkies, survivalists, backpackers, hikers, campers, fly fishermen, survivalists, and anyone living in countries who have on-the-go lifestyles that demand hydration.
Sometimes drinking from a river can be scary, even after dirty water has been purified. With GEOPRESS, you can rest assured that you can drink freely, from any freshwater source. It will remove all waterborne pathogens, and deliver clean, great tasting purified drinking water.
Virus is present in drinking water in virtually all developing countries. It's also wasteful and a burden on the planet to purchase water bottles for international adventure travel. With GEOPRESS, anyone can tap into the world’s water sources and safely drink from sketchy spigots, hotel sinks, murky rivers, wells or lakes.
Adventure travelers have gone from staring at a kettle (boiling h2o), to drinking nasty chemicals (tablets), to pumping plus adding uv light (complicated & slow), to sucking while squeezing (huh?). You're familiar with the tech – it's bulky, awkward, complicated, a time suck (no pun intended). Most travelers and adventurers don't bother, and they buy bottled water instead, because it's available and convenient. Especially those those who live, or travel to those 105+ developing countries where waterborne pathogens are found in their water sources. Sigh.
We set out to invent a better way. And during the process, we created GEOPRESS.

We're a team of adventurers and world travelers, who have all experienced the pains getting sick during our travels to remote countries around the world. In 2013, we decided to do something about it by dedicating ourselves to building purifiers for the rigors of badass adventure travel and outdoor exploration. We’re a small team in the northwest competing with the big boys. We love every second of it, and we’re actively trying the change the world one GRAYL Purifier at a time.
GRAYL is setting out to create a brand new market – purifiers for adventure travelers. The big companies in portable filtration produce many different filters designed for camping and backpacking; most of which can only be used outdoors in North America and Europe because filters aren't effective on virus. It's no coincidence that these companies reside in continents where 'tap water' is safe to drink; and waterborne virus is 'rarely a threat' in the outdoors.
For international travelers visiting the developing world (105+ countries), few feasible options are available aside from adding 'chemical tablets' or 'uv light' to clear tap water or adding to water previously treated with backcountry filter. Because of such, rarely do international travelers choose water treatment because the options that are available are not convenient, practical, or easy-to-use. Instead, they most often turn to GRAYL's #1 competitor — the single-use water bottle, and the giant companies that distribute them globally.
Surely there has to be a better way to make water on-the-go that rivals the convenience of buying single-use water bottles. This is the 'why" that motivated us. We can think of few problems bigger than the mountains of plastic trash, found in every ditch, river and beach in the world. It makes crystal clear sense for GRAYL to work with the Kickstarter community, where the world's informed, conscientious people gather to discover better ways to solve the problems, big and small.
GRAYL believes we can do something about that problem. And if we’re successful, and GEOPRESS™ Purifier becomes the adventure traveler's solution and formidable force against single-use, it will be because the KS community gave us a running start. We'd be honored if you'd support us again.
We love our international backers (30% of our support in 2016 came from you!). For the GEOPRESS, we have negotiated discounts with a bulk, international shipping partner and we will pass those savings directly onto you and we pledge to never to make a penny of profit from shipping or handling. Additionally, we are pre-paying duties, customs, and taxes, so the listed shipping cost has these fees already included. This will ensure that there will not be any surprise fees due upon delivery and it will also make sure that your package won't face any delays in transit.
Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter. Although we're still a young company, GRAYL has a proven track record of selling trusted purifiers. Our 'Ultralight Purifier' is used and loved by well over 100,000 travelers and adventurers, all over the world. The Ultralight earned over 4.5 stars in 800 reviews on a variety of channels. And we spend lots of time, energy and money on testing and quality control.
All that said, the biggest risk is missing our delivery timeline. We could face a production delay due to a variety of factors - production error that causes us to reject merchandise (has happened, we take quality control very seriously), strike at the port (happened to us in 2015), or a natural disaster (Seattle is on an earthquake rift).
But we'll work tirelessly to get you your reward, on time and in perfect condition. And if anything goes wrong, we'll be in constant communication.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
