User Review: MSR MiniWorks EX
Source: received it as a personal gift
Great product, easy maintenance.
- Nicely built
- Easy to use
- Needs a widemouth bottle for easy use
- The pump keeps getting harder when used in dirty water
A water filter is a must-have equipment for outdoor enthusiast everywhere. The Miniworks are an exceptional piece of kit that is doing exactly that, to filter the raw water to be ready to drink water. Although after a couple of liter use, the filter needs to be clean, or you might have to pump it with power.
Have it for about 5 years and still doing a great job. I'm a weekend backpacker so I always carry this kit every time. Bring to a volcano complex in Java, Indonesia, for a 5-day trip and it serves 6 people with no problem except after a 5 or 6 liter, the ceramic filter need to be clean. Other than that it works like a charm.
