Recent Water Treatment Product Reviews

MSR SweetWater Purifier System

rated 4 of 5 stars Have been using this water filter/purifier for 6 years while elk hunting. Had to use filter brush only a the beginning of each trip at home. I generally filtered 6 total liters of water at one time to avoid this duty daily. I really like the unit and always use the suction hose pre-filter. I have been using the MSR Sweetwater for 6 years while elk hunting.  I always use the brush, at home before I leave for a hunt.  Usually pre-filter 6 liters in camp right away, so I don't have to filter daily.

CamelBak All Clear

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The product is very innovative and easy to use. The battery life is never a problem and this unit is utilized by two on the trail. Having a top with the filter gives the best of both worlds with UV and filtration. Nice to have the solution from one company. This unit make very quick work of hydration. Fill the bottle, hit the button, and then shake gently for a short time. How easy is that? I can purify the water and change heads in under 2 minutes. It sure beats having to squeeze through a filter… Full review

Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Saved a three-week trip on the John Muir Trail. Brought as a backup, used as the main filter for two people. So we took off for a three-week leisurely llama trip on the John Muir Trail (National Forest section)...just goofing off and doing lots of fishing. Five llamas for carrying power and two dogs for company, entertainment, and a heat source for the tents. Most of the hikers on the JMT are pounding out miles everyday and miss the solitude and spectacular beauty of side trips off the main trail...not… Full review

MSR Guardian Purifier

rated 5 of 5 stars The MSR Guardian is small, lightweight, and pumps fast. To catch the output, you can either attach the hose from your bladder or screw a container (with the correct threading) on the bottom. Very well built. The handle doesn't flex at all while pumping. Would definitely recommend for adventurers who engage in multiple-day hikes. My search for a portable water filter started when I got tired of hauling my water thus limiting the number of days I could hike at a time. I did a lot of research and comparisons… Full review

Aquamira Water Treatment Drops

rated 5 of 5 stars “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” Aquamira drops have been my go-to for water treatment for a few years now. I've used a Katadyn Basecamp gravity filter, which worked well until it just stopped one day. Pretty big and heavy in retrospect anyway. I've also used a gravity filter that I rigged up with a Platypus Big-Zip and a Sawyer Mini that worked brilliantly until it just stopped working one day no matter how hard I back-flushed… Full review

Katadyn Vario Microfilter

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great for group trips. This is a big monster of a pump that is great for pumping super clean water fast.   Effectiveness I've always used the pump in the long life setting which involves both filter functions, the ceramic disk prefilter and the pleated glassfiber filter. The faster flow setting disengages the ceramic prefilter. The pump also has a carbon filter to make the water taste better, which is one of my favorite features. Neither myself or anyone who has used the filter has ever been sick. Full review

Katadyn Pocket

rated 5 of 5 stars Expedition bomb proof filter. Easily handled our family of four when hiking in summer across Isle Royale for a week and had to filter all water from the lake (don't drink the untreated water!). The only filter I would carry in the back country. Full review

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Works well; pump plunger broke after many uses, but Katadyn replaced it. I've gotten a lot of use from my Katadyn Hiker Pro water filter. I used in on a series of 3- to 5-day hikes, and I also used it on a daily basis when I was living for two months in an area where the water supply wasn't safe. Its design is ingenious, and it packs up compactly into a zipper pouch. The only flaw is that the pump plunger — actually, the flat "knob" at the end of the plunger — broke. (See photos below.) Perhaps… Full review

Platypus Meta Bottle + Microfilter

rated 4 of 5 stars A quick easy water filtration bottle. Scoop and drink treated water directly from the bottle or squeeze water through the filter into another vessel. When I first received the Platypus Meta bottle with Microfilter I thought it was just another filtered water bottle. Well, I was wrong, as it has become my go-to water treatment device for hiking and backpacking. Platypus took its already popular Meta soft bottle and added a removable micro-filter to the top that allows me to drink directly from… Full review
