Simple, Reliable Pump

The pump works as expected.

The only concern I have is that the valve handle feels a little flimsy. Like it won't last too long.

Responded on

I've never been all that concerned about the durability of the MSR plastic pump compared to the more substantial aluminum one by other manufacturers. It's lighter & as long as you care for it with a minimal amount of maintenance, it will work as designed for many years. My original two piece, black & gray WhisperLite pump has been working just fine since 1988, but I can also understand a certain amount of apprehension.
