rated 4 of 5 stars I have used this on overnight backpacking and bikepacking trips, as well as big one-day loop hikes.

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product. Easy to use and serves as a lightweight purification method. Wow, what an easy to use and effective lightweight water purification method. Great for the individual for backpacking and hiking. Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the perfect size for my get-home bag. It's versatile in that it can be used with pouches or screws on to most any bottle. 100,000 gallon life makes it useful for long-term water purification. Priced right! Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Great for ultralight. I go on bicycle, climbing, diving, and mountaineering excursions frequently. I’m an ultralight nut and I won’t use anything other than a Sawyer for my water purification needs.  Full review
