SteriPEN Journey LCD

rated 2 of 5 stars I have owned the Steripen Adventurer for about a decade, and it has performed very very well, with good battery life. With the Journey LCD, I had the same battery probs described by the other reviewers. My conclusion is that the Journey somehow drains batteries when not in use. I had a headlamp like that—it's now in the landfill. By flipping one battery when not in use (so it couldn't make a circuit), I seemed to get a little more life out of it. I do like the LCD display, but I am back to using… Full review

Katadyn Pocket

rated 5 of 5 stars This baby is durable. Easy to maintain. I've had this filter since 1987 or 1988 and it is still going like a champ. Mostly I backpack in the western Sierras and have done Glacier National Park. Not once have I gotten ill and this filter is still going strong. Mine is the older model with the white plastic casing and I expect it to last until I can't lift a backpack. It is a little heavy for a filter, but when I purchased it, I wanted a filter that would last. Even the original O-rings that came… Full review

Katadyn BeFree 0.6L

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Instant water filtering—but be gentle! The filter itself is a great piece of gear. Yes, the flow will be reduced as it gets used, but I can overlook that shortcoming due to the convenience of simply squishing the flask for a drink of clean water. What is not acceptable is that my first trip out the flask developed a pinhole leak at a seemingly random location—not on a seam nor corner. Thankfully, it didn't affect my ability to use it. I just learned where the leak was and put my thumb over it. Full review

Aqua Research H2gO Purifier PRIME

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This a great device for making lots of drinkable water fast! The only drawback is filtering dirty, cloudy water. It's small, easy to pack, and gets the job done. Would definitely recommend, especially to anyone traveling with large groups. Heck even individuals would see a reduction in pack weight! Hello, I am an avid backpacker, climber, hunter, and general outdoorsman. Recently I spent a weekend trip in the Weminuche using the H2gO purifier as my sole source for making clean water. I regularly… Full review

Sawyer MINI

rated 4 of 5 stars Super lightweight, but needs to be backwashed often so the syringe adds weight. It also dispenses slowly. However, it is very versatile and easy to use. I used this on a weekender trip to a GA state park. I decided to pick up a 1L reservoir instead of using the small included pouch. I'd imagine the pouch would be very difficult to get water from streams. I was able to drink straight from the spout, so I didn't have to wait for water when I was already thirsty. However the water does come out slowly. Full review

Sawyer Select S2

rated 3 of 5 stars The Sawyer Select series is a new line of purifiers/filters that offers a variety of contaminant removal, depending on one’s needs. All three models remove chemicals to .5 ppb (parts per billion), and pesticides to .01 ppb. The S2 is designed to remove 99.99% of viruses. The Sawyer Micro Squeeze filter can be used without the purifier to a .1 Micron level. This filter system is best for travelers that aren't concerned about the very lightest products available. Sawyer’s new Select Series is… Full review

Renogy Portable Outdoor Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Works well Small, packable, compact Easy assembly Easy care As a member of another website, I sometimes get the opportunity to try out different products in exchange for a review. I received the Renogy Water Filtration System to review and abuse on my recent camping trip. The Renogy Water Filtration system fit easily in my hydration bag. Easy initial assembly and basically three parts to pack. I would suggest pre-assembly due to a few small parts. Then main assembly when you pull it out to use it. Full review

Aqua Research H2gO Purifier PRIME

rated 4.5 of 5 stars As an employee of Aqua Research, LLC of course I am biased towards this water purifier, but I have taken the H2gO purifier backpacking and use the disinfectant regularly. The best features in my opinion are the weight (3.8 oz) and the solar rechargability. I can stuff the purifier in the bottom of my backpack for weeks and then when I need to purify water pulled from a contaminated source I can simply hold in the sun for a couple seconds and be ready to create a disinfectant solution on the spot. Full review

Renogy Portable Outdoor Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sometimes I get the chance to review products in exchange for an honest review. This time, I got one of these filters to take with me on my Appalachian Trail hike, and it worked really well. Not hard to figure out and does what it's supposed to, as long as you follow the directions. Great for backwoods/water/streams etc for filtering water so that it's drinkable. Even if it's slightly dirty. As the member of another website, occasionally, I have the amazing opportunity to test awesome products in… Full review
