The MSR SweeetWater micro filter is - or at least has been - a great product. Easy to set-up, easy to pump, fast, effective, and the pre-filter works great. I just tried out the replacement filter cartridge and ran into an unexpected problem. On the original filter cartridge, the output port and therefore the connected output tube is 90 degrees away from the handle of the pump. The replacement cartridge is threaded in such a way that the output port is directly under the pump handle; so that on each pump stroke the handle and your hand bumps into the output port and output tube. Still works, but that situation is a nuisance, especially when pumping a lot of water. Possibility of spilling the bottle or whatever being filled as well. I returned to Amazon and afraid to re-order in case Amazon has a defective lot. Or, is this MSR product just variable in where the screw threads start? (You cannot screw the filter cartridge to the pump in a way that avoids the above problem.) I plan to bring my pump to REI to see if their filter cartridges have the same problem.

We bought the "MSR SweetWater Filter Cartridge" as a spare\replacement for our MSR SweetWater Purifier System. We keep with in the same kit with the pump for packing in on long hikes or camping since the little bit of extra weight is worth the peace of mind of knowing that if the one in the pump gets clogged we have a spare on hand.

We are seriously considering getting a second SweetWater Purifier, and additional spare filters, for emergency use in our mountain top house since we do get snowed in a lot and have lost power for days at a time. As I tell my kids having emergency equipment and not needing it is far better than not having emergency equipment and really needing it.

Highly Recommended!

My previous filter cartridge died a sudden death while on a backpacking trip. Fortunately someone else in the group had a backup system. I bought this replacement as soon as I got home in preparation for my next trip. Just make sure to clean it out occasionally, and at the first sign of degraded water flow (after cleaning) carry a replacement!

However, this new one doesn't seem to be a perfect fit. A bit of water drips out the top, but after several trips it's still been working okay otherwise. It's annoying to get my hands wet in frigid water when it was previously always dry, so I will probably look for a new full unit in a few years instead of more replacement cartridges.

This was a replacement cartridge for my 6 year old MSR Sweetwater water purifier. I have used this purifier on several backpacking trips and find it very satisfactory - easy to use, portable and well built. It was time to get a back-up filter as my original was very used. MSR is a great company. My original pump has a plastic key which connects the pump handle to the pump. The tip of it broke off from use making it subject to loss when camping. I emailed the company explaining what happened and offering to purchase a replacement key. They immediately sent a replacement at no charge with their apologies. I wish all companies stood by their products similarly.

I love MSR products through and through! this Sweetwater has served me on 10 trips (7-9 days each) to the BWCA and a few hunting/fishing outings in the back country. It pumps about 0.5 L/min in real-world use (I typically grab clean water from shore) and it does need frequent cleaning (~once daily, when I pump about 10L/day for my crew). Great product. My 8 year old does have a tough time pumping. The cartridge itself doesn't give you the stated 750L. I store it in the freezer when not in use, and I clean as directed. This is my 4th cartridge. do the math: 10L/day, 7-9 days/trip, 10 trips = 700L-900L on 3 replacement filters (the 4th is still going strong) so you'll probably get 300L-400L out of each filter. great product.

This is a dependable filter. I've backpacked and used this filter many times even while pregnant. Never once have I gotten sick. The water that goes through this filter always tastes great and I feel confident that it gets all the nasties out.

I got this for a backup and like I said, it was just what it was supposed to be. It could have been a tad bit cheaper but oh well.

It works!! I have an older SweetWater filter from before MSR bought the company. I am happy to say that this filter works. No to field test it.
