Anyone have any thoughts on this product? Reliable? Does it work? Pros Cons? What are the best uses? I'm going backpacking in Alaska in July. Looking for the best option for water filtering.

Hey Adoraeleven,

Personally I love my SteriPEN. It's light and takes up very little space. Now I am going to get very specific on syntax because this is not a water filtering system. This is a sterilizing device and does not remove or kill anything from the water but instead it sterilizes anything that might be in the water so that it cannot reproduce in your body. Instead anything you ingest will just pass right through your body without any harm.

Also, I kinda like to double up just in case my primary water purifier fails. In your case since there should be an abundance of fresh water where you are hiking maybe bring some iodine backups.
