We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.
Up to 60% of our body is contained by water. Lets say you are out in the wilderness far away from home, the first and the last thing you need to worry about is the most essential thing to survive- Water. Dehydration is always the anxiety that we need to face when we’re in the middle of a tour.

A small fan draws the air from the surrounding environment, runs it through a special filter and presses it into the condensation chambers. A series of small coolers bring the moisture contained in the air to condense on special surfaces. The resultant liquid water then drops into the bottle´s main body and is stored.
There are 2 different water bottles for your adventures:

The initial design strapped onto the top tube of a bicycle and relied on air flow from cycling to get air to pass into a dual-chambered, solar-powered Peltier element. Air pulled into this element condenses into water which drips into the attached bottle. This bike-friendly design is still in place, and is now called Fontus Ryde with the addition of an IP54 filter to keep out contaminants.
