Whether hiking, biking, driving, or camping, a Sport Berkey Water Bottle is a great way to get clean drinking water anywhere.

Using Berkey's proprietary IONIC adsorption microfiltration technology, this innovative, portable water filter eliminates harmful chemicals and contaminants.

This water filter is designed to filter out chlorine, chlorides, trihalomethanes, pharmaceuticals, VOCs, and pesticides. It also removes unpleasant tastes, odors, and sediment.

Depending on the contamination level, it can remove as much as 99.9% of chlorine and heavy metals and 99.9% of trihalomethanes, pesticides, and other pollutants.

This bottle is made of FDA-approved PolyPro plastic. It is also non-leaching, which means it is safe to drink from.

The filter element inside the bottle is made of Black Berkey Elements, which have been tested in accredited laboratories. This filtering material is the same material used in countertop Berkey filters.

The straw inside the Sport Berkey water bottle is made of FDA-approved PolyPro. It can be cleaned by soaking it in a soapy water solution and vinegar to remove the buildup in the straw.

The straw is larger than the opening in a standard water bottle, which makes it easier to get filtered water. It also allows you to filter more water at a time.

Sport Berkey bottles remove unpleasant tastes, odors, and sediment. They are also a great way to filter drinking fountain water.

The Importance of Water When Travelling

Have you ever gone on a trip where your budget runs out because you have consumed it all for liquids and bottled water?

Travelers have different priorities; only some have the same things in mind when packing their bags.

Others might prioritize hand towels rather than having different footwear aboard. Some might overpack with clothes, while others prefer to keep their bags loaded with food, but if you look closely at all those travelers, you might see that most of them are holding a water bottle.

Traveling requires energy; one way to keep your body going is to keep it hydrated. But other than quenching your thirst, what are the other benefits of having an excellent, trusty water bottle with you?

Here are some. 

Plane Ride Buddy – Drinking ample water is a good practice if traveling on a plane. Aircraft have lower humidity, making the air drier than in the desert, and the cold temperature becomes a drying agent. Since our body is getting dehydrated, this causes us to feel heavy and weak, resulting in jetlag. It also lessens the possibility of a heart attack while aviating.   Keep Your Body Coping – Travelling needs to expose yourself to a new environment. Sometimes, it brings about physiological changes that result in a decrease in energy and an increase in stress. Water naturalizes your body from the new environment; temperature, humidity, and movement requirements are just a few things water could help your body cope with.   Less Stress, More Fun – It is not traveling if you stay grounded in the same spot. Traveling will require you to explore and move your body. As you go out and do some activities, you sweat, get tired, and have a strip of the fun of traveling. Water's duty is to keep your body energized, regardless of whether it's cold or at a neutral temperature. Water will regularize your body flow, fueling you for the next activities.   No To Sick Travelling – Have you ever experienced getting sick while traveling? That is because your body has undergone changes and adapted to the environment without proper support. Savvy travelers know the importance of keeping a water bottle handy. This allows them to keep going despite the body changes brought about by external reasons. Water keeps your body hydrated, allowing it to cope with the changes. When you get thirsty, drink. When you think your body is adjusting to the temperature, drink. If you feel tired, hydrate yourself and recharge.  

Water Buddy for Go-to People

Experts and savvy travelers recommend the best option to get you a water filter: portable ones that are easy to carry.

You could go trekking and get yourself good water to drink on the stream or happen to pass by a public park with drinking water depositories and not stop yourself from getting hydrated just because you are worried about consuming it.  

Sports Berkey Water Bottle

Our Berkey Water Sport Bottle is one of the market's most popular Go-To water filter bottles.

Our product is very effective and easy to use. Berkey Water Sport Bottle is free from chemical agents, unlike other handy filters that might require you to use it with certain chemicals.

You only need to fill it with water, and you're good to go. You don't need to limit yourself by choosing your water source; this water filter effectively eliminates 99.9% of harmful toxins and unwanted sediments in your water.

The process also does not change its scent or taste, if it has changed, it turns your unsafe water into a potable, safe, clean crystal type of water.


The Sport Berkey is a water filtration system that stands out because of its portability and effectiveness. The Sport Berkey has crawled to the top because of its convenience and reliability.

All we ever wanted was to ensure that wherever we went, there was water—safe, reliable, and drinkable water. Quenching our thirst after a long day gives us peace and relaxation, especially if we know in the back of our minds that our access to water is trustworthy enough.

This guide below outlines the different characteristics and features of the Sport Berkey and some important information you need to know. It will give you a trustworthy guide to a better and clearer understanding of the product.

What is the Sport Berkey?

The Sport Berkey water bottle is designed to provide consumers with portable access to safe and potable drinking water. It is an ideal must-bring necessity whenever you are to jump from one place to another. The Sport Berkey has been recognized to be the perfect traveling buddy whenever and wherever.

What makes the Sport Berkey so special among other competing products? The logic behind its design and innovation is relatively simple to understand. The Sport Berkey can reduce 99.999% of harmful contaminants or elements in your drinking water.

How was the Sport Berkey Developed?

Some specialists in different fields gathered to brainstorm on this innovative product. Water filter experts, field engineers, and research specialists went above and beyond to create the Sport Berkey. After months of investigative laboratory testing, field research was conducted to develop and improve the Sport Berkey.

The Sport Berkey's primary function is to enable the water filtering element to eliminate unwanted elements in our waters, a process called adsorption.

How does the Sport Berkey Function?

The magic happens when you squeeze the Sport Berkey to have a drink. The water passes through the filter, which comprises several media that create microscopic pores to filter the water. Therefore, unwanted contaminants that are carried along the water are removed.

The primary characteristic of Sport Berkey is its proprietary adsorbing media, which can "adsorp" various pollutants, such as chromium, copper, lead, cadmium, aluminum, mercury, and other unwanted and unsafe heavy metals.

How Should you use the Sport Berkey?

First and foremost, there will be leftover residues from the manufacturing process. So, it would be best to remove that before using it properly. To do so, follow these easy steps:

  • Remove the cap from your Sport Berkey
  • Fill your Sport Berkey with water
  • Close the Sport Berkey using the cap. Make sure that it is tightened and secured
  • Next, pull down the loop of the lid and then extend the straw
  • Squeeze the bottle to allow the water to pass through the filters and out of the bottle. Make the bottle as empty as you can
  • repeat the same process twice to remove the dust particles inside the filters that built up due to the manufacturing process
  • Afterward, rinse the whole Sport Berkey water bottle
  • Your Sport Berkey is now ready for proper use!

Limitations and Other Characteristics or Features of the Sport Berkey

Life Span of the Sport Berkey

Amazingly, the Sport Berkey can last 50 years. It is not only convenient and portable but also economical. However, this long shelf life depends on how you maintain your Sport Berkey. The more carefully you care for your Sport Berkey Water Bottle, the longer it will last.

On a lighter note, always store your Sport Berkey in a room or storage with no more than 115 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it not an excellent container for hot coffee or tea. Using the Sport Berkey, a turnaround method could be to filter your water for coffee or tea to ensure that you consume safe and drinkable water. After filtering, you can boil the water for your tea and coffee using a cup or mug for the container.

In addition, regarding temperatures, the Sport Berkey can be refrigerated. It is not recommended to be frozen or stored in a freezer with a restriction. This will result in the filter pores expanding, reducing efficiency.

Cleaning Methods

If you do not use your Sport Berkey for a long period of days, you need to take care of your filter. There is a way of preparing a formulated solution for cleaning your Sport Berkey. That would be a mixture of bleach and water. The math to do it is per half a gallon of water would be 1/4 teaspoon of chlorine bleach. Rinse the Sport Berkey with your DIY cleansing solution and allow your unit to air dry before reassembling them back together.

There is another yet simple way to clean the Sport Berkey's straw. Over time, it might develop molds or mildew. A simple way to remove them is to use the standard cleaning process—a regular sponge and soap. In addition, there will always be instructions at the back for you to follow on how to clean the straw properly—moreover, the product in general.

Generic Sport Berkey VS Regular Sport Berkey

Another conflicting misconception about this particular product is the release of the Generic and Regular Sport Berkeys. Is there a significance between the two? Fortunately, there is almost no difference between the Generic and Regular ones. The ONLY difference is that the Generic Sport Berkey was developed without silk-screening on the bottle's exterior. Moreover, the generic Sport Berkey was primarily designed to benefit missionaries and relief operations greatly.

All in all, Sport Berkey has its fair share of inconveniences. However, the advantages and positive points are outstanding. Many consumers have opted for Sport Berkey. Will you?

Not for those with hands that don’t work

I couldn’t squeeze the bottle enough to clean the filter. I have RA and my hands are painful and this bottle doesn’t give a space large enough for me to get a good squeeze, so I haven’t been able to use it!

Glenda Miranda (Tucson, US)

I am happy to have the availability of this great water bottle. It takes a little bit to get used to the straw (you need to use alot of power to get the water-at least more than usual from a water bottle). But now I am comfortable with it so not as much of an issue. I do wonder how I will know when the filter needs replacement - as I am not keeping track of the number of gallons I’m filtering. But this bottle is exactly what I wanted-I have the bigger Berkeley filtering system so I am a fan of their products.

Christie (El Dorado Hills, US)
Trusted Water EVERYWHERE!

I confidently take my Sport Berkey on the road, assured that I will have pure, clean water no matter what the water conditions are in the region I'm in.

Another plus is, not creating more trash by drinking bottled water all the time.

The only 'cons' are, it takes an extra-ordinary amount of sucking-power to get the water up through the straw and it is not 100% spill-proof.

I'll be packing my Sport Berkey with me on my trip to Europe!

I bought one for my sister, too!

P. S. Hoping they make metal or glass equivalent.

Boiler (Mattawan, US)
Needs better construction

I needed a bottle for an upcoming trip and since I like my counterop Berkey so well, I decided to go with the Berkey Water bottle. I did not want to drink the water where I was travelling to. I really dislike the plastic material the bottle is made from (don't like drinking from plastic in any way and the bottle and straw are both ry flexible plastic-like material). The lid and straw combo will not hold up ( I suspect) as the straw is totally bent over when the flip lid is closed, as it is most of the time. I also find that I can't get the lid to form a tight enough seal and the bottle leaks when on it's side (which happened when I put my travel bag under my airline seat). I assume it is filtering properly, but overall I don't like the way this bottle is made, especaily for the cost.

Judith M D Freking (Camarillo, US)
Purchased for travel

As title implies we are planning a summer vacation & wanted these to take along. Have to say we have not used them yet but they look great, & light weight to carry Will be using them soon. If as good as our countertop BERKEY, we will be pleased.
Have to add, they look very similar to a filtered bottle I had years ago from NIKKEN COMPANY.

Shelley Picou (Hampton, US)
Love it

Love that I know I can have safe water no matter where I go. Love my Berkeys!

Teri Wallis (Boise, US)
Safe to drink anywhere

I take this water bottle everywhere I go, knowing that I am drinking filtered good water all of the time. I love this product

Miranda Ortiz (Virginia Beach, US)

I love this, wish I got a bigger one to be honest. I enjoy putting ice in it and having clean cold water wherever I go!

Stacy Morris (The Villages, US)
Best Purchase!

I cannot believe the quality of water that I drink from this bottle. It is on the wish list of all of my family and friends. I was traveling and needed to have Berkey quality water at all delivered! Fresh clean water on the go. It is necessary!

LaSan Allien (Bossier City, US)
Love it with one exception

I use my Berkey Sport bottle every day. I love being able to refill it throughout my work day knowing I am drinking clean water. My only caveat is that it leaks. I think it is leaking from the top but not sure.
