User Review: Katadyn Base Camp
Price Paid: $60
Used on a five-day trip on the Green River in Utah. Brought a bucket to "settle" water overnight, and then used a cup to ladle the clearer, top water into the Base Camp.
Worked fine for the first five gallons; after that, was a slow drip. Overnight, we would get one liter of water. Cleaned the pre-filter over and over, and had to use precious filtered water (of which we had so little) to clean out bag and pre-filter.
Thankfully, I had a Sweetwater Guardian and water purification tablets, otherwise we would have been screwed. 100 degree days, exhausting hikes up side canyons -- and not a drop to drink.
