The SteriPen Freedom with its 75 grams is currently the lightest UV pen from SteriPen. We will use this UV pen in combination with a ceramic water filter to clean the water from possible viruses as well.

Recommendation

I have used the Steripen Freedom in combination with a ceramic filter in order to achieve the best results. I have tested the Steripen Freedom on our trip to Sarek in Sweden. However, water filters are in most cases not really needed there but it’s still good to filter particles out with a ceramic filter.

You can get the Steripen Freedom on Amazon.
