This filter bottle did the job for me as described. I never got sick from it even when taking water directly from creeks. The only faults I found with the bottle was that the tubing from the mouthpiece to the filter was very soft/flexible and would occasionally kink in a way that required some readjustments and fiddling to initiate proper flow. The only other thing I disliked is that the mouthpiece did not snap down firmly and lock, so it would occasionally be bumped and the mouthpiece would flip up and be contaminated or leak. The bottle itself did not leak as some reviews I read had suggested, and I did not find it difficult to squeeze and drink from the bottle. Maybe slightly more effort than you standard water bottle, but when you consider all the work its doing for you in a short amount of time, I think it is worth it. Most airport security checkpoints gave it the evil eye because it IS an unexpected filter contraption to find in a water bottle, but they never threatened to take it away from me (and I traveled through three foreign countries and 5 different airports in one trip with it).

Beware of the "Microfilter" vs "purifier" designation in the model name. This is a cost-reduced model that does not have the advanced filtering promoted on the Katadyn website. "Granular activated carbon" filtering "improves taste" rather than filter out harmful chemicals and bacteria. In fact, upon closer reading, this filter does exactly 2 things: Removes particles and dirt from water and make it taste "better". They throw in lingo like "microfilter", "03 micron", "pleated glass-fiber microfilter", "granular activated carbon" and "can be used as purifier (if you buy a premium filter core)" which can confuse first time buyers between 2 outwardly similar product lines.

It's like Brita (hypothetically) selling you a cartridge of 10% active contents and charging 90% the price, in hopes that the pitcher/bottle investment would prompt you to buy their premier filter cartridge. It's like HP (non-hypothetically) selling you a 3ml "starter" ink cartridge in hopes that you would buy a regular 15ml cartridge.

Given the low performance and 26 gallon capacity, costs can quickly add up. For long-term usage, the Lifesaver Bottle 4000 seems cheaper.

I only got the actual microfilter that goes in the bottle and not the bottle itself. The description and photo shows MyBottle in White but yet to receive it. Now I have to waste time returning this item. Please don't order this if you are wanting the entire bottle and filter.

We just returned from 2 weeks in Vietnam, including camping at a couple of national parks there. We used our Katadyn MyBottle to make clean water to brush our teeth with at all the hotels and extensively for drinking while camping. We had no gastronomical distress, unlike quite a few of our other friends there. The water tasted good straight out of the bottle, but note that the flow rate tend to be delayed or a bit slower than normal. So we actually would make several bottles of water and keep it in a normal water bottle for use to brush our teeth etc. When the filter gets dirty (which this did towards the end of the trip), you have to squeeze much harder on the bottle to get the water out, this is how you'll know that you need to replace the filter. I estimate that we probably used this four about 10-15 gallons of water (much less than the 26 gallon advertised), but usage is actually based on how dirty the water is. We threw the filter away at the end of the trip, the entire filter surface was a muddy brown, so we're glad we had this with us. For <$40, worth the investment and will definitely bring this on my next trip. The bottle is also relatively light, so it's easy to carry around (especially with the filter cartridge out). It comes with a normal internal straw, so once you made the clean water, you can put the clean water in the bottle, take the filter purifier out and just use it like a normal water bottle with the straw. Would recommend this product.

I used this in the Galapagos Islands for a week and loved not having to buy water. The real test was when I used it while travelling in India for a week and it also worked. I didn't get sick. I just re-filled it with tap water and didn't have to buy water. Most importantly I didn't get Delhi Belly.

I ordered two of these bottles for my recent hiking trip on the A.T. During my warm up hikes I found that the bottles were very weighty for hiking and that the filter would not dry out between uses. I even tried using a hair dryer to get the water out. I was afraid that mold would set in over time. I needn't worry as the whole Bottle and filter were disused for the trip. To weighty and poor filter made them a bad choice for hiking.

People who test their critical survival equipment while on the mission should be questioned. Always test your equipment before you leave. This water filter works. I have traveled the globe for many decades. While one might think that water quality would improve over the years, the truth is, on average, it has actually diminished in quality.

Don't read reviews by people who test their equipment while on travel. These people clearly do not know how to plan or prepare. I had to send one of the Katadyn's back when I noticed the volume counter was broken. However, functionally, the replaced item works as described. I would highly recommend this for anyone not traveling to a North American or European destination.

This would be excellent for camping as well. Keep in mind the flow is slow. Think of it as a forearm workout!
