can't go wrong with this filter...

This filter is great! I’ve tried branching out to other brands… and have had issues… and seem to always come back to the Katadyn (PUR) Hiker. I am most impressed by its flow/pump speed and ease of use; I think the fastest pumping water filter I have ever used. It does get harder to pump when filter is dirty… But I found that rubber banding a coffee filter to the end going into the water will make your filter last longer- and takes a good amount of sediments out. ***I wished they made a lighter weight and compact version of this filter so that I can pack it for day hikes.
