GRAYL Purifier Bottle Review


 Grayl ultralight - Purifying Bottle Review


When I decided to travel for a long time I never thought how much risk I am putting my health into. Especially when I set my mind that my travel style will be budget friendly and will practice a frugal lifestyle. Luckily, I have never been sick throughout my journey, but this is something I cannot just overlook and let the luck draw the cards. In this lifestyle, it’s hard to put my health into priority, however, I do my best to make sure that I get to practice every little thing to make sure I still able to look after myself even through my own little way.

In addition, I am also a fan of not consuming a lot of plastic products. Crossing path with Grayl Ultralight is one of the best things that ever happened to my travel life. A purifying bottle that basically solves my obsession of not purchasing of a plastic bottle and the fact that I am able to make sure that I am only drinking clean and purified water.

GRAYL Ultralight

An ultra light-weight purifying bottle that can turn any kind of water into a purified and drinkable water in just 15 seconds. Unlike standard mechanical filtration, the Quest Purifier Bottle is powered by a patented electro-absorptive media capable of removing submicron pathogens and inorganic contaminants. With [ONE PRESS], electro-adhesion and ion exchange create a powerful submicron trap for pathogens (viruses, bacteria and protozoan cysts).



  • Super lightweight
  • Quick time to purify water
  • Purifying PLUS filtration process



  • It doesn’t hold much volume which could be an issue for longer trips
  • Sometimes, it’s hard to press the bottle itself when purifying

What I love most about this Grayl Ultralight is the fact it kills most viruses, bacteria, protozoan cysts, heavy metals and chemical up to 99.9999%. It also improves the water flavour, odour, and clarity. The material is made of food-grade plastic and food-grade silicon whilst the lifespan of each cartridge lasts up to 300 uses (40 gal/150L).

Grayl Ultralight with me in the Philippines whilst enjoying a street food!


Despite the fact that Grayl Ultralight purifying bottle doesn’t hold much volume, I still highly suggest it. I love going on adventure and travel to the unusual places where it’s hard to predict if I will be able to access clean water. I’m currently travelling in the Philippines where most areas, you cannot drink the water from the tap. Carrying a Grayl Ultralight bottle with me saved me in a lot of situations. I also able to save a lot of money from buying bottles of water.

For example, as a local here in the Philippines and being away for almost three years, I couldn’t help but try the famous local food around Manila which I miss the most!

I once stopped by on a lady’s small stall full of street food, I quick bought some pugo (fried duck’s egg) and pritong lumpiang gulay (friend vegetable lumpia). These delicious foods made me thirsty since I don’t drink soda, I had to ask the lady if I can have some water; in the Philippines, you will never know which ones are clean and not, we buy distilled water from water companies. I filled my Grayl Ultralight, in just less than 20 seconds, I have clean and drinkable water!

For a traveller like me, it’s comforting to travel with a gear that will turn any kind of water into a drinkable one! I love the fact that Grayl Ultralight does not require batteries and any prolonged waiting. Just Fill. Press. Drink.
