LifeStraw Go

rated 5 of 5 stars Great filtered water bottle. Very fast and easy. Would recommend to anyone. Great product, just used it on the trail last weekend. Just find the water source and fill it up, don't have to stop, unpack filter, filter water, then repack it. Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very portable and lightweight, easy to use and great for travelers. Scenario: Only water source at camp was from a stream and second time using filter. I filled up my bottle, attached filter to the top, and drank. It was also handy refilling our water bladders and took only a few minutes to refill a 2L and 3L bag. Tip: I put my Sawyer filter in a ziplock bag to prevent the filter from leaking excess water. Shake it out throughly before stuffing it in your bag or attach the squeeze bag to the end… Full review

Katadyn Vario Microfilter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Fast way to filter your water on the go. Easy to use and clean. Great for backpacking. I got my Vario at a store for used outdoor gear called Second Gear. I use to boil my water or used iodine tabs. After a few trips and using other people's pumps I bought it used for about 30 bucks and bought a new filter for about $45 at REI. The dual action piston pumps faster than any other pump. Two settings for the flow allows for fast flow or longer filter life. It is heavier than the chemicals, but with… Full review

Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very good little filter. I have used this filter on numerous backpacking trips and it has worked well every time. Great little unit. I have used this on many backpacking trips and love it. A little research needs to be done into what the water is like where you are going. In southeastern Ohio the water is pretty clear and contaminant free, so several bags of water can be filtered before the flow slows down. In the Dolly Sods region of West Virginia the water has a very high mineral content and only… Full review

Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hassle-free water filtering on the go. The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is imported to Europe by a German company named Care Plus. Same filter, different brand. Just saying...The package includes the filter (duh..), the cleaning syringe, the straw and a 0.5L water bag. There is no smell whatsoever from the filtered water no matter from what component it goes through. I personally like to fill in the included bag and then squeeze the filtered water into my hydration bladder. The flow is excellent if… Full review

Sawyer MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars At 2 oz, this mini filter is a soloist's lightweight dream. No waiting for tablets anymore. Effectiveness: The product is a particulate filter and does not claim to kill pathogens like a tablet. It's claim of effectiveness is pretty high: "0.1-micron filter physically removes 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli; removes 99.9999% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium".  I find those claims to be reassuring.The compact Sawyer Mini Filter Speed and Efficiency:… Full review

First Need Deluxe Water Purifier

rated 5 of 5 stars Reliable, versatile, and fast. Reliable, versatile, and fast. I purchased my unit well over 20 years ago. Used it on hikes in the Coast and Cascades ranges of Oregon and Washington. And really put it to the test while while trekking in Myanmar, Central America, and travels from Ghana to Namibia. Purified water from very suspect sources. Never had an issue, never suffered from water borne problems. Definitely a lifesaver and definitely a product to recommend.  Full review

Katadyn Hiker

rated 5 of 5 stars It's prone to a stuck check valve, but after much searching, I discovered a company, Smart Products, that has a simple and quick fix for the problem with the insertion of their double-barbed, one-way valve for 1/4' hose.  Here’s the information:http://smartproducts.com/ Part number:     304304-0011S000-6019Description:      1/4” Barb x 1/4” Barb CV Polypropylene MaterialPrice:        $6.50     Full review
