User Review: Katadyn Hiker
Price Paid: $60
I bought this filter based on Hiker magazine's recommendation. I go once a year with a group of guys (four total) and we only carry this filter. It has been on five trips so far and hasn't even given a hint of a problem so far. I have replaced the filter once just to be on the safe side. It is light, reliable and durable. I highly recommend it.
I have only given it 4 stars because I don't have anything to compare it to. Also, since we started using the filter, we haven't used purification tablets and haven't had a bit of problem (do this at your own risk). As far as I can tell there isn't enough reason to spend more on a filter that does the same thing as this one.
