First Need Deluxe Water Purifier

rated 5 of 5 stars Reliable, versatile, and fast. Reliable, versatile, and fast. I purchased my unit well over 20 years ago. Used it on hikes in the Coast and Cascades ranges of Oregon and Washington. And really put it to the test while while trekking in Myanmar, Central America, and travels from Ghana to Namibia. Purified water from very suspect sources. Never had an issue, never suffered from water borne problems. Definitely a lifesaver and definitely a product to recommend.  Full review

Katadyn Hiker

rated 5 of 5 stars It's prone to a stuck check valve, but after much searching, I discovered a company, Smart Products, that has a simple and quick fix for the problem with the insertion of their double-barbed, one-way valve for 1/4' hose.  Here’s the information:http://smartproducts.com/ Part number:     304304-0011S000-6019Description:      1/4” Barb x 1/4” Barb CV Polypropylene MaterialPrice:        $6.50     Full review

Katadyn Hiker

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice filter I love it, but it takes some effort to pump. Leaks a little when pumping so be prepared to get a little wet. Used it in shallow creek in Harriman State Park in N.Y., and the the pump filled with dirt. Assume it shortened the life of the filter cartridge. Rinsed the filter well when I got back, and since I was returning to the same shelter area of Harriman the following weekend, I tied a piece of old t-shirt material on the pre-filter and that seems to have prevented further clogging.

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great filter for hiking in the backcountry. This stores small and is fairly lightweight. Would definitely recommend this for anyone hiking where water must be treated. I bought this filtration system more than four seasons ago and have not regretted it. It packs light and is easy to use. The fresh water connection fits most Nalgene openings and hydration packs. When it doesn't it is easy to hold the tube along with the container you are pumping water into.   The one downside is that the pump… Full review

Katadyn Carbon Cartridge

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a fairly inexpensive, simple, upgrade/add-on for filters such as the Hiker, Hiker PRO, and even the older PUR models. I recommend this product for anyone using those models, especially if you are getting water from a source that is used by recreational watercraft, or the source water has a bad taste or odor. Trailspace has two (2) group headings for this product, under different names. This product is currently called the "Katadyn Bottle Adapter with Activated Carbon" on Katadyn's website. Full review

Aquamira Water Treatment Drops

rated 5 of 5 stars I just got back from a 4-day backpacking trip with a new cycling friend who brought this product call Aquamira. It's two small bottles of liquids that when mixed together in about 7 drops each makes a tasteless way to purify water in the back country. I just looked it up online at: http://www.aquamira.com/products/aquamira-water-treatment-drops/  Comes in two small bottle weighing just around an ounce. Mixes in the white cap of Part B above, turns yellow after a 5 minute wait, then added to water… Full review

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
