    I got one from Amazon Warehouse for a good deal. They also have new ones.

    Amazon.com: Lifesaver Bottle 4000 Ultra Filtration Water Bottle: Sports & Outdoors

    Here is the direct sales site:

    LIFESAVER USA Online

    I bought 1. Have not used in real life, yet. Kinda big for a bug out bag or camping and hiking. Has a few flaws. You can overpump, so you gotta watch that. You have to dip it into the dirty water. It does not have a hose like an MSR filter. You would probably need something to scoop the water with and dump it in so not to contaminate the drinking side. Good for emergencies, but probably too big and overkill for hiking and camping. Just my opinion. I hope they make some changes at some point and adjust for these flaws.

    Also, search for Lifesaver on this forum. There are some other comments in another thread.

    Thank you but am I missing the difference between the 4000 and the 6000 they seem the same just different colors.

    They can filter different amounts of water. 4000 = 4000 liters. 6000 = 6000 liters.

    Check out the Katadyn pocket filter. They may be a little difficult to find, but the filter is good for 13,000 gallons, it is field serviceable, and small enough for a bug out bag.

    I believe it has a flip top to keep the nipple out of the nasty water...

    Yeah but I would still like some sort of pump to get the water in I dont want the exterior of the bottle touching the water at all in my mind maybe part of the grip I guess but preferably not
