Grayl Unveils New Travel-Ready UltraPress Water Filter & Purifier Bottle at AdventureELEVATE in Sedona

9 November 2021

Seattle-based Grayl, longtime gear member of Adventure Travel Trade Association and partner in the initiative to reduce single-use plastic pollution, will unveil the new UltraPress Water Filter & Purifier at AdventureELEVATE in Sedona, Arizona. 

Grayl makes innovative water filters and purifiers purpose-built for limitless adventure and global travel, and aims to help travelers reduce consumption of single-use plastic water bottles. The newest addition to Grayl’s line of top-rated water filter and purifier bottles, the UltraPress is incredibly easy to use and delivers the highest level of filtration protection against waterborne pathogens that can easily make the unsuspecting traveler sick. 


If you’re familiar with Grayl’s popular GeoPress purifier, you’ll see that this brand-new bottle packs many of the performance features of the higher capacity GeoPress into a more compact, pack-friendly size (16.9 oz / 700 ml)—perfect for carry-on only luggage and those looking to travel light, it easily fits in backpack side pockets and vehicle cup holders. 

The UltraPress empowers adventure travelers to make their own safe, clean drinking water virtually anywhere in the world. Unlike common camping and outdoor water filters, the UltraPress protects against waterborne viruses, including Rotavirus, Norovirus, and Hepatitis A, plus bacteria and protozoa in a quick 10-second press. It also filters out microplastics and many pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, heavy metals, eliminating unwanted tastes and odors.

Each UltraPress filter cartridge can displace up to 320 single-use plastic water bottles, which travelers typically have to purchase while visiting countries with potentially unsafe drinking water. Luckily, the UltraPress is super versatile, and can be used to filter water easily from a hotel sink, public fountain, or wild backcountry river. The bottles’ hinged FlipCarry™ handle rotates 90° for easy carrying and allows for effortless OnePress™ filtration and purification. The multifunctional SimpleVent™ drink cap features a RiverFlow™ drink-thru spout that delivers a fast flow of water to quickly quench your thirst and make sharing easy. The UltraPress is available in nine fresh colors ranging from the landscape-inspired Nature Collection to the bold and subtle Covert Collection.
