User Review: MSR MiniWorks EX
Price Paid: $66
I just finished a hiking trip at Pike's Peak with my Boy Scout Troop. We used the MiniWorks for 10 Scouts and four adults for a three-day backpacking trip. I was impressed with the filtration rate and the ease of use. We just pumped water directly out of a mountain stream right into various bottles and canteens.
Of course, as a Boy Scout Leader I took the added precaution of using iodine tablets. Some scouts didn’t like the taste of “iodinated” water so we then filtered the water again. To my surprise it took out the iodine taste! If a young Scout can use it without any problems (it was dropped a few times) you know it must be a good product!
