Recent Water Treatment Product Reviews

SteriPEN Classic 3 with Pre-Filter

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Works very well, but is restricted to certain water containers due to size. I really love this product.  However, it only works with certain bottle sizes.  I don't enjoy the requirement of bringing heavier bottles that will fit the pre-filter.  On the other hand, with good batteries, it lasts quite long. It takes about 30 seconds to treat 0.5L, or about a minute for 1 L. This is fine for one person, but it eventually takes quite a while for a large group, with infrequent water sources (lots of… Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter

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

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System

rated 5 of 5 stars One of the easiest and quickest way to filter a liter of water. It's so rad to let gravity do its work while you start preparing breakfast or dinner, or setting up camp. Easy to back flush and stores nicely in the accompanied Playtpus bag. I can't say enough about my Platypus GravityWorks system. It makes filtering water one of the "funner" chores of camp, which we all know that sometimes filtering water can really be a chore. I love the process and how easy it is to hook up.   I hang my dirty… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Sawyer Mini is an excellent lightweight, compact, and reliable solution for filtering water at a very reasonable price. A $25 investment can help reduce the need to pack in all of your water and subsequently lower the weight of your pack. I bought my Mini Squeeze to reduce my pack weight and volume compare to my MSR Miniworks. While I really like the MSR and its ability to pump out of puddles and such, its 16 ounces and size can eat up a lot of space in a small pack. The MSR pump can also be… Full review

First Need Deluxe Water Purifier

rated 5 of 5 stars The only real choice if you want to remove all the nasty bugs/chemicals from your water source with a single self-contained device. I’ve had this First Need purifier for nearly a decade and it has served me and my hiking/backpacking buddies well. Most importantly, this is not simply a water filter but a chemical-free purifier. That means you don’t have to use the chemicals other require or the addition of iodine to make water safe to consume. This means it removes a lot of those difficult to… Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter

rated 4 of 5 stars Simple, easy to use, and lightweight starting at 2 oz. It makes water filtration a breeze while protecting from potential pathogens. Bought this filter after seeing several buddies using. It is easy to use and by the company's information it kills 99% of (Protozoa, E. Coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerea, Salmonella Typhi) pathogens. You simply fill one of the supplied bags attach the filter and squeeze into another container. The one big negative I have found is that the filter must be used on their… Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent and easy way to filter large quantities of water in the backcountry. Purchased the Sawyer 2-liter gravity system, only to have it clog permanently after first use. Returned it and got the Platypus and not only is it lighter and more compact, it's much easier to use and is more versatile. Plus, it's fast! Clocked it filtering 2 liters at 1 minute 33 seconds. Not bad. It can be a bit of a struggle to fit all the components into the stuff sack but that's minimal compared to how well this… Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter

rated 4 of 5 stars Bought this for my first overnight hike. Was great for me. It was very hot and humid, so I was sweating profusely, but was in am area with lots of creeks and streams. I would just top off the Squeeze bag at every cold moving water I came across. I'm no expert, but I think this for the price point is hard to beat. Full review

Katadyn Base Camp

rated 1.5 of 5 stars We used the filter on a BWCA trip and even with prefiltering the water with 4 bandanas and using 3 screen prefilters from older filter cartridges the unit clogged in just 20L of use. The only thing that saved us from boiling water was the reason I bought the system; the filter works in my Hiker pump. We did find that the filter worked fine in the pump. My plan is to put a Sawyer in-line filter on the bag.   I like the large volume and ease of use.  I just want something I can back flush and repair. … Full review
