User Review: SteriPEN Adventurer
Price Paid: $109
I have used the SteriPen Adventurer all this year. Six trips; about 15 days on the trail. I love it. The only problem I've had was in trying to use Tenergy rechargeable batteries. They just don't work! I've gone back to using only Panasonic non-rechargeables and haven't had a problem since.
This device takes nearly a pound out of my pack (once my Katadyn Hiker is used once, the wet filter core brings its weight close to a pound). I will use my trusty old Katadyn when I hike the coast later this Fall as I figure water near the coast has the highest probability of carrying a chemical/fertilizer load, but whenever I'm hiking the back country my Steripen will always go with me.
