Best Water Filter on the Market (Not Perfect – Just the Best)

Must have rushing water to fill up reservoir or use a rigid container to scoop out water and pour that into the reservoir. Back-flush the filter with clean tap water regularly to maintain fast flow through the filter. The water source needs to be several inches deep.
We love bringing this along
This has been a lifesafer on hike in camping trips. We love bringing this along. Easy to use and filters water so quickly. Make sure to clean it out after every use and to backflush so that it filters water fast. If it gets clogged then obviously it’s going to filter slower. Just make sure to set up your water filter far away from the campfire otherwise the plastic and then the water will start to smell like smoke!
I have enjoyed using the product
I have enjoyed using the product. The capacity is good for groups when compared to the 2 liter version, which required frequent filling to make it through a single meal for about 9 scouts and adults on a backpacking trip. Other than the frequent filling for the group, it was easy to use. If you refill the dirty water bag after filling the clean bag, it gives you 8 liters of water to bring back to camp. Just filter the dirty water when you use up the clean bag.

I was using (I should say fighting with) an MSR Hyperlite filter before getting this. It’s a few ounces heaver than the MSR, but a billion times easier to use. I no longer have to fight with leaks all over my hands while back flushing, just lower the inlet bag, and raise the outflow bag. Simple. Filters fast, and you can even rig the clean bag up as a hydration filter and leave the water bottle at home!
Great system, great idea.
Talk about filter envy! We recently went on a 6 day canoe trip, By the fourth day ALL of the guys were using our filter instead of pumping with their own filters. (I guess it’s the guy’s job to filter water each morning and evening?) This was SOOO easy to set up and use. It is pictured hanging on a tree or high stand. I was able to place it on our upturned canoe and it worked fine with about 2 feet of drop. And it is QUICK! Much faster and easier than sitting there pumping by hand. I just set it up and walked away, did other things, came back, refilled it and started on another water bottle. Well worth the expense even if you already have a good pump system. Nice to find something that is logical (gravity) and works easily. Glad we invested in it.

This is a lifesaver over the hand pump style filters. After a long day of hiking, the last thing you want to do after setting up camp is sit near the river, pumping with one hand, holding your canteen in the other, while pulling off a balancing act trying not to fall in.

I was having a hard time justifying the price and added weight/size over my Sawyer Squeeze, but I figured I would try it. After one trip, I will never backpack without it. It takes all of the hassle out of filtering. The added weight isnt significant and is totally worth it to save time and effort. I can have my whole groups water for the day filtered in 10 or 15 minutes while I pack up. Just get one.

Incredibly handy! Before buying this I did an exhaustive amount of research on water filters. What sold me on this is the fact that you can get a lot of water in one shot, it filters FAST, and most importantly… NO PUMPING! If you’re backpacking this is a no brainer. Water weighs 8.3lb per gallon and an adult needs about a gallon a day, so bringing water on a multi-day trip is not an option. This weighs less than a pound at 13.6oz! This can also save you money in the long run. The filter lasts for 1500 liters or 396 Gallons, If you’re buying gallons of water from the store that’ll cost you $350-$400. Even if you’re filling from the tap this will save space and save you from having to lug water around.
