Great, lightweight filter. Gives you confidence any water can become clean and filtered. Water tastes great and easy to use. Love the included adapter to connect to your Camelbak. Just connect and pump filtered water right into your drinking reservoir. Recently went on a trip with a friend who had an MSR water filter. Being able to compare both side by side the Katadyn wins hands down.

#1 - Lighter
#2 - The MSR has a bulky handle that looks to easy to snap off
#3 - Smaller footprint than the MSR
#4 - Pumps out water at a higher rate.

Spiderman's Slippers!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These boots rock! They fit perfectly, snug in the ankle with little heel movement. The toe box fits my feet perfectly. Best of all is the grip - these boots stick like Spiderman. Tested them out on a 4 day trip, committing hiker sin, no break-in period just fresh out of the box and started hiking. No hot spots and they took about 3-5 miles to break in. Not ONE blister (yeah!) of course wearing a merino wool sock liner and hiking socks.

Would I recommend these? Absolutely!!!

This is a good sack. I really like the valve that lets you get all the air out of your bag. I use this bag for food storage. Put all your food in the bag, seal up the top, open the air relief and let all the air out, then hoist up in the trees for a bear proof food hang. Love the bag. Only taken out on a few trips so far.

Not sure how the clear plastic will hold up - so far so good but my first impression was this may be a point of failure. No issues yet just pointing out my observations.
