Water Filtration

Current water pump filtration systems requires you to uncomfortably squat next to a stream or pond for prolonged periods of time and requires an extended pumping effort to fill multiple water containers.

The ŪKA system is portable, stackable, time-saving, virtually effortless gravity water filtration system; it keeps a large amount of fresh, clean, potable water at your campsite.

The ŪKA system provides 7 gallons (14 gallons when stacked) of contaminate free virtually effortless gravity water filtration allows for washing, rinsing, cooking, drinking, or to douse the campfire.


Camp Meal Prep & Small Camp Table with Embedded Cutting Board

Current backpacking stoves and pots are often top heavy and have a tendency to fall over when stirring or pouring water. Finding a good food prep area can be difficult: the ground isn’t sanitary, you’ve got to squat to make your meals, and your food prep containers can be kicked over by an unobservant camper.

The ŪKA system is also a small camp table, made of food-grade plastic with deployable aluminum legs. As a small food prep table, the embedded cutting board provides stability for cutting up nutritious foods, using camp stoves, pots, etc. and supplies a ton of clean/dry storage inside for camp dishes, utensils, french press, coffee cups, etc.

Camp Stool

Today, many backpackers often sit on the ground or stand up to eat their meals. Some backpackers tend to carry lightweight chairs or sleeping pad chairs, unfortunately, once seated these chairs are often uncomfortable and make standing up very difficult.

The ŪKA is a simple, fast, and comfortable device, either attach the lid to the container and take a seat – or flip the ŪKA over, sit, and enjoy your meal in peace.

Camp Prep & Clean-up

Cleanup requires water for both washing, rinsing, and dousing the camp fire.

Rinsing often requires filtered water to ensure that organisms such as bacteria, protozoa, cysts, sediment, dirt and silt, have been fully removed before rinsing cooking and eating utensils. Mountain streams look clean enough to the eye – but invisible microorganism are thriving in the millions.

Often backpackers will make several trips between the nearest body of water with their dirty dishes and uncomfortably squat down to clean their cooking and eating utensils – without falling into the water.TrailHungry Pack Basket#2
