NO. 1: THE QUICKDRAW TEST
MSR designed the Trailshot to filter water at the speedy rate of one liter per minute. To demonstrate its dominance, we set up a duel between a couple of real cowboys. Who will prevail?
NO. 2: THE GOLD PANNING TEST
Water can be filled with all kinds of bad stuff. Bad stuff is bad, you can’t argue that. The MSR Trailshot filters out all that grossness and leaves you with only the purest water. But does it help you pan for gold? (yes)
NO. 3: THE SHARPSHOOTER TEST
The MSR Trailshot is a super small filter designed to take up as little space in your pack as possible. How small is it, you ask? What a good question! It’s so small that we’re betting even the sharpest of shooters can’t hit it.
Bottom line: If you want a super fast, lightweight, and efficient water filter that can fit in your shorts pocket, check out the MSR Trailshot Microfilter.
