does this pump come with an additional house for the output nozzle? i know some filters (katadyn vario) come with another hose to help fill up reservoirs. i usually hike with a camelbak 3 liter bladder. if it doesn't, is it a problem that can be solved by running to your local hardware store for a tube?

Hey there, this filter doesn't come with an extra hose, I am not sure if a water bladder hose will fit to the nipple/output on the bottom or not... MSR says this on how to filter water:
Place a clean container under the filter OR attach an MSR® Dromedary™ Bag onto the bottom of the filter...

So basically a water bottle or MSR's specific water bladders...

I personally use the Katadyn Vario for all general needs and just pull the bite piece from my water bladder, insert this into the bottom of the Vario and then fill the bladder while its still in my pack...

I use the Katadyn pocket for the nastiest water and then a Steripen when I know the water is clear...
