You can suspend this pocket on anything and it’s all in a fabric bag (which can also be used as a waterproof bag) and leave it out in the sun during the day to heat up. Check it out here.

The filter is inside the bottle so all you have to do is fill it up, drink and let the filter do the work so you can have fresh and clean water readily available for free.
