Great little water purifier. Used this while traveling through India to purify tap water for drinking when bottled water wasn't available or the power was down and filters not working at Ashram where I stayed. Made it a whole month in India without getting sick once. It is really easy to use, I always gave a litter of water 2 full zaps just to be safe. The only down side is the size and weight, it's pretty hefty with 4 AA batteries inside oh and it looks a lot like an "adult toy" but it works. I almost forgot the cap takes some strenght to get off. I was always worried about using too much force and accidently breaking the light bulb, never happened and the bulb seems to be pretty robust, still should be easier to take off, maybe use a threaded cap instead. about the "prefilter" it's nothing more than a piece of plastic mesh to keep out large amounts of sediment. Great Price Definately worth it, but if you are a minimalist hiker this is probably too big and heavy, pay a little extra and get the small version

The Review by Karl G must be for the 2011 style shirt which has the button on the sleeve strap. The 2012 fixed this problem and put the button on the arm where it is covered by a small flap of fabric to protect the button. for the price this is a great shirt definately the lowest cost option for a good outdoor shirt with roll up sleeves. I have a 2011 small and childs XL as well as a 2012 small. I am 5ft8 and 135lbs. My only real complaint is that these shirts are not made for people with an athletic or slim build. Definately designed for the "normal American" The kids XL is slightly too small and the 2011 Small is definately too large in the body, length is fine though. The 2012 Version small is quite a bit smaller and better fitting though could have a more athletic fit. I used these shirts while traveling through India this may where it averaged 110 degrees F almost everyday. The wicking and quick dry ability is awesome, they stood up to quite a bit of abuse, the only damage was the 2012 edition is permanently crumpled in one area where the waist belt on my heavy pack was for quite a few days. All in all good, not the best but probably the best value unless you find something else on sale.
