Best ultralight water filter.

I have used a variety of filters/chemicals for decades. This is the best I have ever used!
I have added a connector to prevent spillage of unfiltered water. I took two soda bottle caps, bored them out, used plumbers glue and glued them top to top then taped them together, kept the gaskets in the caps. I fill the unfiltered water into the larger black Mylar bag that comes with the kit; I screw on the filter and remove the push-pull cap and screw on my connector. I screw on the bladder/water bottle and squeeze! There is no leakage! Refill the black bag as often as needed.
I marked the black water bag cap with black paint so I won't mix the good water cap with the black. I keep the connector in a small zip-lock bag, keep the push-pull cap on the filter and the black cap on the black bag.
Total weight for filter with push-pull cap, connector in a small zip-lock bag, the large black water bag with cap on all in a small bag is: 3.5 ounces.
