User Review: First Need Deluxe Water Purifier
Price Paid: $100
I hunt in out of my pack for a week at a time. Weight is important so I spend a lot of money trading older gear for newer lighter gear. I'm so confident in the First Need that it is the only thing in my pack that is not an opportunity for improvement. My First Need purifier is the first thing that goes in my pack.
I've had my first need for about 5 years now. I bought an extra filter a couple years ago thinking that sooner or later the original would need replacement, it hasn't had an issue yet. Back flush per the instructions after every use and it will serve you for years.
Ran into four guys elk hunting last week, two purifiers had failed, neither were First Need. They were suffering through purifier tablets.
