User Review: MSR SweetWater Microfilter
I have just returned from a great trip with my MSR Sweetwater. I had an older filter, really old so it will remain nameless, and finally it broke. I read some reviews and compared it with a similar Katadyn filter.
One review out of a hundred helped me choose the Sweetwater. My fellow packer had purchased said Katadyn. Let me tell you New York is real dry right now. There is no good fresh flowing sources anywhere except maybe Niagara Falls. But we found a pond that was suitable enough. We used the Katadyn the first day and all I could smell and taste was pond in the supply we filtered. Nobody was sick! Cudos to Kat for a good filter.
The second day however I broke out the Sweetwater, and the water not only was clean and clear, but tasted and smelled like pure H2O. I'm going to start filtering my home water supply with this thing. It was exactly as it was named, sweet water.
