I did quite a bit of research before buying this filter and was under the impression that it was a reliable, effective device. After about the fourth use, though, the input barb snapped off while I was attaching the input hose. I've included a photo in the customer images section. I suppose the problem could be avoided if you never detach the input hose once you've put it on, but I was bagging the hoses separately to avoid cross-contamination.

Silver lining: I e-mailed the company about the problem and they responded just a day later. They said that both hoses are designed to be removed after use, the barb shouldn't have broken off, and offered to mail me a replacement body for the filter - that's pretty great customer service.

As someone who trecks winter and summer I found this to be the best and fastest way to get filtered water. It is easy to use, light weight, pumps a lot of water quickly and is a tried and true piece of equiptment. This is the second i've purchased. Wouldnt go with any other one.

I have tried several water purifiers as I frequently travel to third world countries with questionable water supplies. I like this one better than any other I have used. You can quickly get a good quantity of water' It is much easier to use than the Xstream that I used to use.
I have used it all over the world. It is easy to pack and easy to use. It is a winner in every way.

Easy to assemble, no brainer operation. Water filter is one of the best I have used on outdoor excursions. Volume of water is exceptional for
the minimal effort. A must have for your next trip.

I have used this little guy for awhile now during long hikes in the Sierra's. It delivers clear clean water from the rivers and streams that I have used it in. To date I have not had any bad experiences with it or the water that I have drank. The size is small enough that it fits nicely in one of the small side pockets of my pack. Also the weight is almost non existant. I would recomend this to a friend.

Bought this item for a trip to the BWCA. Worked great without any issues. Really beat boiling the water to purify. Was plenty fast for filling water bottles. Tasted great. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted a simple solution to purifying water on a wilderness trip!

My husband and I, along with other adults, take a group of girls up into the Los Padres National Forest in California every summer for a few days. We have used this filter for a number of years and it works great! We can pump enough water for over 10 people and it's so easy to use. I think we'll buy another one to make it more convenient, the price is right.

Just completed a 3 day 2 night canoe trip. The water was 8' above flood stage and very muddy. The katadyn microfilter worked great. The drinking water it produced was crystal clear and tasted good. The filter need a good cleaning after the trip, but it was an easy proceedure. Look forward to using it again. Amozon had the best price on the net.
