User Review: Katadyn Micropur MP1 Purification Tablets
Price Paid: $12
This product is wonderful for weight reduction and as prior noted, tearing the foil is difficult and can cause loss of tablet parts on the ground.
The taste is not all that bad, what keeps from giving 5 stars is the foil packing and the weight time for fast water replacing on the trail is really limited so one must plan according to the next source, a larger container for camp is necessary as this is not a fast bottle fill on the trail device. For that I carry a few iodine tabs, the larger Platypus is used for evening and mornings at the camp site.
I must say, the wait time sometimes gets shortened by necessity. Good for those times when you can store water and wait it out. With the Colorado high country streams above beaver ponds and livestock, must admit sometimes shorten the dwell time.
