Wait till you've seen the latest link.
I'll be doing public service films for HM Government soon
ps only 45 minutes to go: well worth stopping up for!
And not to be outdone, 500ml filtered in 42 seconds, to address some of the silly comments i've seen about it's speed, especially this one suggesting it could take 5 minutes to filter 500ml.
(Forward to 5.20)
Apologies for my crappy camera btw.
I see the latest Travel Tap claims a delivery rate of "300 - 600 mls per minute", whereas the previous versions and all the other products like inline filter, waterbag etc., state "300+ mls per min".
I don't know what's changed for the new one to be faster. I've certainly never got anywhere near 500mls in 42 seconds with any of the products... and that's not a silly comment!
My bottle is the second incarnation, i've had it well over a year, though it does seem the bottle design has changed again recently, so basically i'm not sure, only to say it feels exactly the same as the original.
As for muscle, a lot of it is in the thumbs as you'll know, and both mine are weak as hell, especially my left one as last time i broke it i didn't even rest it, as i didn't want to miss out on bouldering trips with the mates.
Btw, i could easily beat 42 seconds if i really tried.

Where's the regional accented commentary and bright shirt?
I'll see your accent and questionable shirt and raise you sandals and socks.
This is another video showing a brand new filter, it takes around the same time for 500ml and i was hardly rushing.
I had to swap the O ring around as you might notice as i lost the older filters one.
Sandals AND socks! I'll fold!
I have always found the flow fine for drinking although I could never be bothered to time it, if you are going to filter several bottles into other containers just use both hands to squeeze.
Tip: my one didn't seem to seal properly around the screw thread between the filter and the cap so I wrapped with a bit of plumbers PTFE tape and now its perfect.
Not a "mod" as such, but a way to use your travel tap as a waterbag at no added cost.
Ideally i'd sacrifice a dry bag but i only have one 3lt one which i can't spare.
