    The Sawyer PointONE is my new favorite water filter. Depending on water conditions, it can filter up to one millions gallons, and the flow rate beats the Sawyer Mini water filter hands down. However wonderful the Sawyer PointONE water filter is, the user still has to either fill up a bag or...

    Surely everyone has heard of a LifeStraw? It is a simple tube that is a water filter. Place the inlet into the water, then suck the water through the tube. Seems simple enough right? Almost too good to be true? If something seems to god to be true it usually is, except for the LifeStraw. Back...

    What is a good water filter upgrade from the katadyn hiker? Was out on a hiking trip today doing some videos and taking pictures for reviews. Stopped for lunch next to a creek. Got out my katadyn hiker and was filtering water from a creek. I thought to myself, there must be something faster...

    Im looking to get some lightweight portable water purifier straws/filters. I came across a decent deal on some here and was wondering if anyone has used them or something similar?

    Just bought a Hiker PRO.($75) I think I like it, got a seperate carbon cartridge also( free from friend). But everybody I talk to says the MSR is better, they look kind a brittle to me, maybe it's the transparency of them. So whats the best out there for $200 ? I could use this one for a...

    Just curious as to if the MSR Miniworks EX will work with camelback hydration bladders or if they only work with MSR versions (ie dromedary and hydromedary).

    One thing about the Aquamira Frontier Pro Water Filter - I'am pretty impressed by how versatile it is. Its lite weight, portable, easy to use, easy to clean and has no moving parts. I received this filter from Readypro and its going to be my sons filter. On a recent hiking trip this past...

    Well I've been looking for a good water filter for me to put into my BOB and also for use when camping and such. I've pretty much narrowed it down between the Katadyn Hiker Pro and the MSR Miniworks EX water filters, which from what I've read are both very good filters. Please give your advice...
