User Review: MSR MiniWorks EX
Price Paid: $99
So far this works great. It is a little bigger than others but I just feel really confident in this product to do its job better than others. The filters are supposed to last a long time and not much seems like it could fail as far as components.
It is a little slow but the water tastes great and is nice and clear. If you are using it and the filter starts to go really slow, simply unscrew it and remove the filter and use the brillo pad to lightly scrub off grime. It may appear to be clean but it probably isn't.
On our first trip out we found a small trickling runoff and filtered 6 liters in a fairly short amount of time but ran into the cleaning off the filter problem that held us up trying to figure out the problem. Once we realized all we had to do was lightly clean it we were up and running smoothly.
I really do recommend this filter. MSR is good stuff.
