MSR’s Engineering and Design Ensures Durability and Reliability

The AutoFlow XL’s design benefits from MSR’s trusted engineering and deep expertise in water treatment science.

For durability, the AutoFlow XL’s film reservoir is constructed with RF-welded seams. Inside, its food-grade lining ensures better tasting water.

he filter can be easily cleaned in the field with no tools required, allowing users to regain its fast flow rates quickly and easily. Other features include a prefilter, a sediment trap and a universal wide-mouth bottle adapter. The AutoFlow XL is poised to be the industry standard for delivering an effective, reliable and easily maintainable filtration source for clean water for larger groups and expeditions—parties that already have plenty to think about on big adventures in the backcountry.
