It's Reusable!

We call it the "Permanent" filter because, well, its extremely durable, easy to clean and will last for a long time. The TarGard Permanent Cigarette Filter is the original cigarette filter that launched TarGard back in 1963. Still, to this day, the TarGard Permanent Filter is the only reusable cigarette filter available.

The Permanent Filter System comes complete with each of the following:

  • 1 Metal Filter Insert
  • 1 Black O-Ring
  • 1 Clear Mouthpiece
  • 1 Black Mouthpiece

It's Easy to Clean

Cleaning the TarGard Permanent Filter only takes a few seconds. We also provide cleaning instructions with a few tips that customers have passed along to us over the years. Even though it's easy to clean, it may not always be convenient to. That's why most customers prefer to keep two or three of them on hand so that when you aren't at home you can use a backup filter until you can clean it.

Holding Capacity

This filter has similar holding capacity as our Original Cigarette Filter. Some smokers can smoke a full pack of cigarettes through it without it needing to be cleaned. However, this will vary for each smoker depending on how hard you draw the smoke and which brand of cigarettes you smoke. We've heard that average customers can get between 10 and 15 cigarettes between cleanings.

Hunter S. Thompson made it Famous

We were very fortunate to have Hunter S. Thompson as one of our most loyal customers. He always kept several cleaned Permanent Cigarette Filter Systems on hand so he could make sure he never had to smoke without one. He was quite vocal about the effectiveness of TarGard filters and was a very gracious brand steward for TarGard. He's missed by many.

We have honored his memory by occasionally holding a Hunter S. Thompson Look-Alike Contest. View previous year's contest winners and participants.
