Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I will never use a pump filter again after using one of these. No more crouching by the creek furiously pumping water into Nalgene after Nalgene. Just fill the dirty water bag up, hook it up to the filter and clean water bag, then forget about it for a couple minutes, boom 4 liters of water.

We used the gravity filter on four day trips for 15 weeks. It never failed us, never got clogged, and with 4 people we always had enough water. When water began to get scarce up high we could use the bags to carry 8 liters of water up to camp. Like previous reviewers, you need to be careful of the filter freezing at night. As far as durability, I hauled mine all around Thailand and Cambodia in the bottom of my pack for 7 weeks and it still works like a charm.

Awesome light tent for the money

The Vapor Light 1 Tent is fantastic. I used one for 4.5 months while backpacking in Yellowstone for work. The design is light and the footprint clips into the rest of the tent making setup really easy.

The tent was put through rain, sun, wind and snow. I slept in it 3 nights a week for 15 weeks and it had been already been used for two seasons by previous techs on the project. Despite 8 months of heavy use prior to my using it, the tent was in great condition and stood up to my abuse well. The only problem was the one of the guy line attachments had ripped out of one of the tents (we had 4). But after 3 field seasons only one had lost one guy line attachment and everything else still worked great.
