Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars This product works!!! The 4L Platypus is utilized best when the need to produce large amounts of water is necessary. I would recommend this or its little brother to anyone who requires the need to filter water effectively and efficiently from water sources that does or may contain bacteria. We used this on a five-day float down one of Alaska's premiere rivers. Though the river itself is as clean and pristine as you would like any river to be, at the start of the trip, we floated by a decaying moose… Full review

Katadyn Pocket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Katadyn is long lasting, and easy to use. It can be cleaned in the field and removes microorganisms larger than .2 microns. It is great for long stays in the outdoors where it would be difficult to carry all the water you would need for the trip. Combined with a Steripen, it will provide drinkable water from almost any source. I've used the Katadyn to filter water in outdoor situations where it was not practical to carry all the water needed for the trip.  The filter comes with its own carry… Full review

Sawyer Squeeze Filter System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Portable, effective, and lightweight, this system was a good companion to a water bladder carried within my backpack. Best for hiking and backpacking. The Sawyer Squeeze water filtration system claims to remove 99.9 percent of bacteria and protozoa. The filter is built-in and includes a removable push/pull cap, so water can be sprayed directly into the mouth or into another container from the pouch or a bottle with a similar cap. I bought this product specifically for use on the Chilkoot Trail which… Full review

Sawyer Complete Water Filtration System 4 Liter

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Gravity filtration is a great way to go for backcountry camping with a group of a least two. A pump can be more convenient for single person, or for during a hike. Scooping water into the dirty bag is not easy. I am never able to fill beyond ~ 2/3rds full. Cleaning system (using sink adapter) is a kludge (e.g. uses zip ties to connect the parts) and cannot withstand reverse pressure. Syringe system may work better, but doesn't come with this kit. Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars If you're looking for a lightweight effortless way to provide water for your group of hikers the 4.0 liter system is just the system for you. Super easy to use and can provide up to 8 liters of water for the group in one trip to the water source. Effectiveness: Treats water from natural sources and have not had any issues with it not performing as advertised. You do need to read the directions, which are not difficult to follow or remember even at 12,000 feet after a hard climb. I have used all… Full review

Through the process of electrolysis, the Potable Aqua PURE breaks the NaCl molecule in a simple salt water brine solution that produces Chlorine and Peroxide. From backpacking to emergency disaster relief, this small device can be used in a multitude of environments. The reaction chamber in action, fizzing and bubbling The device with its included brine container,… Full review

SteriPEN Classic

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had multiple ways to filter water. I've use drops, tablets, pumps, and used gravity. I've settled on the SteriPEN UV filtration system. I love the ease of use. I simply fill a Nalgene, turn on the light source, and in about 90 seconds I have drinkable water. It includes a pre-filter to keep floaties out. SteriPEN, like most filters, keeps out over 99% of most of the things that can make you sick. It comes with a pre-filter, but if the water is really dirty, I also use a clean bandanna.  The… Full review

Platypus GravityWorks Filter System 4L

rated 5 of 5 stars Fast, light, smart. The Platypus gravity filter is fast small and light. It packs in its own mesh bag. It uses gravity, so no pumping is required. Just fill the dirty bag and hang from a tree rock or trekking poles and open the valve. You don't need to attend it at all. It's fast and produces clean clear delicious water. The system comes with fittings to fill popular water carrying bottles, or you can filter directly into your hydration bladder. Full review

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
