Thanks in advance. I'm looking at the Katadyn Expedition to start with. Just because it seems to be the biggest volume I've found. Other threads I have read say that one system won't be all I need. So a partner to this one? I do realize that filtration is not purification. There...

Ok, I had been looking at the MSR EX Miniworks for ages. Pulled the trigger shipped for $76.46
However, I'm thinking I should have gone another route. I starting thinking about the gravity fed ones when I saw the Sawyer filter kit for about $60. What was a turn off for me was that it needed a...
