Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 4 of 5 stars Sawyer Mini Water Filter is a small lightweight filter. It is great for backpacking and hiking. The Sawyer Mini WaterFilter treats dirty water when you squeeze the water through the filter. It doesn't take long to filter. All you need to do is put it together and squeeze. It is plenty of water for me, but if there was a group of 4-5 I would probably have to refill it 2-3 time. Treating the water is very simple all you have to do is put it together and squeeze. It works constantly and always well. Full review

LifeStraw Mission Gravity Water Purifier

rated 1 of 5 stars The Lifestraw Mission gravity purifier is overall an OK performing filter, and I would probably trust it to adequately filter any water source not contaminated with chemical contaminants, radioactive material, etc. However, it is not without its flaws and quirks. Filter functionality alone, I would rate this filter 2 or 2 1/2 stars, but when its other flaws are taken into account it brings my rating of this filter down even lower. If someone asked me to describe the Lifestraw Mission in as few words… Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars Lazy Man's Water Tanker! In planning for a 4-day backpacking trip on the Ouachita Trail in Arkansas we noticed a 10-mile stretch with no water supply (with a mountain climb). Looking around this system seemed like it might be the ticket—4 liters, let gravity do the work instead of pumping. Needless to say the morning we hit the trailhead it was snowing with ambient temp of 15°F. The high that day was 22°F. I took the filter from the system and put it inside my shell to make sure it didn't get… Full review

Katadyn Combi

rated 5 of 5 stars Great device. I have a few Combis. Used one with mountain water in Auburn, California, and didn't have a problem.  In fact, the water tasted amazing. Full review

Sawyer PointOne Filter with Bucket Adapter

rated 5 of 5 stars A very adaptable filter for groups. My Katadyn cartridge filter would sometimes plug on long group trips and wouldn't backflush. This filter costs what a replacement Katadyn cartridge would cost. However, it back-flushes beautifully and has been used with a 10 liter water bag for group water on several trips and is still going strong. It is lighter and packs smaller than my old one. Full review

MSR Guardian Purifier

rated 5 of 5 stars Simply the best water filter in the world. I have used water filters for decades. My first one cracked when it froze. I have used two MSR MiniWorks with great results. It was great to be field repairable and field cleanable BUT filtering water was slow and required a lot of effort, usually at the end of a long hard day! Enter the MSR Guardian! Less than half the effort of the MiniWorks and at least twice the speed. For these two features alone this filter would be the winner but there is sooo much… Full review

Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very light water filter with adequate flow if you're focused on minimizing the base weight of your pack. I have been focused on getting the base weight of my pack down under 20 pounds and one of the changes I made was going from a pump type water filter to the Sawyer Mini water filter. In general I am happy with the Sawyer Mini in that it does the job and only weighs in at about 2 oz. The filter comes as a kit and includes a syringe for washing the filter using a back flow, a 16 oz squeeze… Full review

Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Best water filter I've ever had! Lightweight, small, durable, easy to use, and best of all it's very affordable. This is the perfect water filter for 1-2 people who are weight/space conscious backpackers. This is hands-down the best water filter I've ever owned. I could have skipped listing all of the pros and just said there isn't anything better on the market if you're looking for a filter like this. You will NOT regret this purchase if you're a backpacker that travels more than 100 yards from… Full review

Katadyn Base Camp

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent filter for floating rivers in Alaska. I've been using the Katadyn Base Camp gravity filter for almost 20 years in Alaska. It works great as long as the water source is near camp...floating rivers or backpacking near alpine streams.   Since it is a gravity system, above timberline I set it up in the rocks on a steep slope and stretch the outlet line as much as possible downhill to maximize the flow rate. I clean the filter after each trip by removing the prefilter screen, soaking in soapy… Full review
