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

Osprey Hydraulics Reservoir

rated 5 of 5 stars A great reservoir! And easy maintenance. Here is another great product by Osprey! This product comes in both 2L and 3L, mine of which being the 3L, and it is held well, and offers plenty of water for the backcountry. I've had a few reservoirs, and this one is my favorite to date.   It fits into multiple packs well, even at 3Ls.  Including a Talon 22, which is not the largest pack, but 3L is held just fine; as well as my Kid Carrier by a different brand (which I was a little leery of the fit, but… 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

CamelBak Chute Bottle

rated 5 of 5 stars Great all around water bottle for any occasion. Double mouth for easy sipping and ice is great. Only downfall is that it isn't insulated. I've had this water bottle ever since the day it was released. I use it every day and it has held up against all that I've put it through. It's very durable and has withstood the many times I've dropped it. Its widemouth is perfect for when I want to fill it with ice, as it allows ice to be poured right in. The smaller mouth on top is also extra convenient as… Full review

Sea to Summit Pack Tap

rated 2.5 of 5 stars This is a great product that served me well for two years of about once monthly use. I was loving the ease of use and the ability to carry so much more water. It was all going well till out on a hike the Pack Tap started leaking around the seam that the opening attached to the bag with. I can no longer use it as it leaks too rapidly. Luckily it broke on me on my last day of the hike and I had another bottle with me to use. 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

Aquamira Water Treatment Drops

rated 5 of 5 stars No added taste, never inconvenient, very light, and best of all, it doesn't break. I've been using these for years with great success. I've been using the Aquamira drops for a few years, ever since Andrew Skurka (Ultimate Hiker's Guide) suggested them, and I've never looked back. Most people who I've spent any time with on the trails, who were using some filter system, pretty much converted after experiencing this stuff. What could be easier? Here is how it works. You find a water source and you're… Full review
