2% FOR THE ELEPHANTS
The HITCO H2O is ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping, travel, and emergency preparedness. Filters up to 5,000 liters (1320.86 gallons) of water! The straw-style filter design lets you turn up to 5,000 liters of contaminated water into safe drinking water. The filter can be used to drink water directly from an open body of water such as a stream, river, or lake. It is a handheld ultralight design weighing only 2 oz.
The HITCO H2O can filter five times as much water as the standard LifeStraw. It reduces turbidity, filtering down to 0.1 microns. This filter does NOT use iodine or iodinated resin. The microbiological, hollow fiber membrane filters to 0.1 microns and removes:
- 99.999999% of bacteria (including E. Coli and Native Klebsiella)
- 99.999% of waterborne protozoan parasites (>LOG 3 reduction, including Giardia & Cryptosporidium)
- 99.999% of microplastics
Here at Swiss Link, we believe in high quality, affordable products. That’s why we’re in the military surplus business. Over the years, we’ve come up with some of our own ideas so we developed the HITCo™ brand. All HITCo™ products are of the same dependable construction you can expect from our military issue goods and feature innovative, fresh designs.
As you can see, our brand image features an elephant. We have high respect for all living things and a particular love for the magnificent elephant. Sadly, illegal poaching is rampant and too many elephants spend time in confined, torturous conditions. This is absolutely unacceptable to us.
We wanted to do something about it, so we searched for an elephant sanctuary we can put our trust in—and we found one. We’ve decided to donate two percent of the sales of all HITCo™ items to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. They’ve been providing home and herd to elephants retired from performance and exhibition for 25 years. Learn more about them here: elephants.com

THE ELEPHANT SANCTUARY
The Elephant Sanctuary exists to provide captive elephants with individualized care, the companionship of a herd, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their well-being. It also exists to educate the public of the complex needs of elephants in captivity and the crisis facing elephants in the wild.
