Started using this filter back in the early 90's along the A.T. when they were owned by and labeled PUR. This a great filter. Easy to use and faster than most. The construction of the filter is great just do not put all 200 lbs of your weight on the handle to pump when the filter clogs, it may break. (did not say how smart I was). The filter is compact and lightweight.
One change to make on the filter. Get rid of the "acorn" on the end (it is heavy) and buy a fuel filter for a 71 VW.(buy palstic not metal) cut intake hose in the middle and place the VW filter. The VW filter weighs less than an ounce cost about a dollar and will tipple the life of the main filter.

Have had my WhisperLite since 1994. Have hiked over 3000 miles and never had any problems. In 2001 I did add the shaker jet adapter to minimize the amount of cleaning I have to do after trips. Would take a lot to convince me to carry another stove.
If traveling overseas finding fuel is not a problem. My stove is not the international and it will still safely burn some other types of fuel. In the picture I posted I am burning a petrol based paint thinner I found in Argentina.
