MSR SweetWater Purifier System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have used the SweetWater for three years now. It has always done a great job. When an internal mechanism broke from years of use, MSR promptly replaced it—no questions asked. I got it used. When handed to me, I asked the guy how much life was left in it. He said he thought it was at the end of the line. I used it for two more years. It's finally starting to "pop the hose back" from the filter being at the end of the line. Effectiveness: Treats water well. Be mindful that it takes out particulate… Full review

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 4 of 5 stars If you need to carry a filter for reasonably large volumes of water (camping for several people), this filer works quite well. Lighter options exist now. I've used this filter for several years, but now rarely carry it because I can generally meet my needs (just my wife and I) with a Sawyer Squeeze for a lot lower weight penalty. Full review

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good water filtration system. I have used this filter for several years now, and have replaced the cartridges about 2 times in the past 5 years.  The system is easy to use and cleans just as easy. Replacement cartridges are easy to take out and place back in.  I would recommend that when you return home from any trip that you air dry out the cartridge so that it doesn't get any mildew or mold on it. This is coming from my own experience, as I forgot to do that at the end of one season and after… Full review

LifeSaver Systems LifeSaver Bottle

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Well, I bought this item with some excitement thinking this was my answer to using chemical tablets and boiling. Was I wrong. I read all the positive reviews and watched the videos and thought this was my answer to hiking in the wilds and minimizing weight. When I got the item I followed the instructions to the letter primed etc and noticed small deposits of carbon from the filter passing and settling at the bottom of a test glass, but put this down to it being new. Went away for the weekend and… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best for solo use. Can easily be used as an online filter on a Camelbak type system, although drinking then requires more effort. The Sawyer Mini is my first water purification system, although I have used and seen many others that fellow hikers have had. The Sawyer Mini is a great device that can be used at base camp for filling water bottles or attached to a large water bladder for community use. I had first tried this out as an in-line filter on my Camelbak, but quickly found out that did not… Full review

Katadyn Base Camp

rated 2 of 5 stars After two weekend backpacking trips, I really liked this bag/filter. My buddy and I would fill it the day we got there, and it'd provide water for us both for the entire weekend. However, on the third trip it leaked where the filter goes into the bag. I returned it and got a new one and the new one never worked. I took this bag on two trips and both trips ended with the same result, using my buddy's water pump. Thankfully he brought his pump or we would have had no water.   I followed all of the… Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple, quick, reliable, light, easy to use, easy to store. I will not replace this any time soon. I switched from an MSR Sweetwater two years ago and I love this Platy Gravityworks. I won't switch any time soon. It's very fast—scoop up some water in the dirty bag, hook up the hoses and clean bag, hang it on tree and go set up your tent or do whatever. It's done in a couple minutes. It's easy to clean, easy to store, no pumping. It's much better than the pump systems It can clog with sediment… Full review

MSR MiniWorks EX

rated 5 of 5 stars This filter works great and is very easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a simple backwoods water filter. This filter has two parts. There is a foam filter at the end of the water intake tube. This foam removes large sediment and prevents debris from entering the filter system. It works well, but it's still a good idea to ensure that the water intake is not sitting in muck or surrounded by debris. The second part of this filter is the ceramic element (the part that actually… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Very lightweight, small to pack, and best of all very low effort required to replenish your water supply. Low maintenance and low effort are a must while backpacking. Filter performs as advertised. Water quality was never an issue, filter backflow was very easy to do. I downsized from the full size Sawyer filter to the Mini to save space more than anything else and had same level of satisfaction.  Have used other pump style filters and find this much easier and faster. Refill time on a liter of… Full review
