Sawyer Squeeze Filter System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product that meets all of my backpacking needs. Amazing customer service. I've had my Sawyer filter system for just over a year. It's held up well, through two seasons of backpacking. I personally love the space and light weight it offers. I received three bags of different sizes with my filter, all of which have held up great. After two seasons I am looking at replacing some of them, only because they have seen a lot of wear from some rough Boy sScouts through out the season. I did have some… Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter System

rated 4 of 5 stars Great Filtration System. Great little filtration system that was put to the test in the waters of Lake Michigan. After filling and taking a big long drink, I noticed a couple of dead ducks floating nearby. I am still alive and happy to report this little filter works awesome. Cloudy murky water turns into crystal clear goodness with not a hint of foulness as the water hits your taste buds. Backwashing is simple and quick and the instructions are printed right on the filter. Very easy to use, very… Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars This product works!!! The 4L Platypus is utilized best when the need to produce large amounts of water is necessary. I would recommend this or its little brother to anyone who requires the need to filter water effectively and efficiently from water sources that does or may contain bacteria. We used this on a five-day float down one of Alaska's premiere rivers. Though the river itself is as clean and pristine as you would like any river to be, at the start of the trip, we floated by a decaying moose… Full review

Katadyn Pocket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Katadyn is long lasting, and easy to use. It can be cleaned in the field and removes microorganisms larger than .2 microns. It is great for long stays in the outdoors where it would be difficult to carry all the water you would need for the trip. Combined with a Steripen, it will provide drinkable water from almost any source. I've used the Katadyn to filter water in outdoor situations where it was not practical to carry all the water needed for the trip.  The filter comes with its own carry… Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Portable, effective, and lightweight, this system was a good companion to a water bladder carried within my backpack. Best for hiking and backpacking. The Sawyer Squeeze water filtration system claims to remove 99.9 percent of bacteria and protozoa. The filter is built-in and includes a removable push/pull cap, so water can be sprayed directly into the mouth or into another container from the pouch or a bottle with a similar cap. I bought this product specifically for use on the Chilkoot Trail which… Full review

Sawyer Complete Water Filtration System 4 Liter

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Gravity filtration is a great way to go for backcountry camping with a group of a least two. A pump can be more convenient for single person, or for during a hike. Scooping water into the dirty bag is not easy. I am never able to fill beyond ~ 2/3rds full. Cleaning system (using sink adapter) is a kludge (e.g. uses zip ties to connect the parts) and cannot withstand reverse pressure. Syringe system may work better, but doesn't come with this kit. Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars If you're looking for a lightweight effortless way to provide water for your group of hikers the 4.0 liter system is just the system for you. Super easy to use and can provide up to 8 liters of water for the group in one trip to the water source. Effectiveness: Treats water from natural sources and have not had any issues with it not performing as advertised. You do need to read the directions, which are not difficult to follow or remember even at 12,000 feet after a hard climb. I have used all… Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars Fast, light, smart. The Platypus gravity filter is fast small and light. It packs in its own mesh bag. It uses gravity, so no pumping is required. Just fill the dirty bag and hang from a tree rock or trekking poles and open the valve. You don't need to attend it at all. It's fast and produces clean clear delicious water. The system comes with fittings to fill popular water carrying bottles, or you can filter directly into your hydration bladder. Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter System

rated 4 of 5 stars The product works well, but the squeeze process is not as easy as one would hope. Additionally, the bag that comes with it breaks easily — just use an Evernew. I've used this product over multiple weeks in the back country. It works very well by itself, although the process is not easy — the squeeze of the bag does not push much water through, without considerable pressure. The bag from Sawyer breaks easily. I remedied this by using an Evernew bag. As it is slow, it is not the best for a group. Full review
