There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The plastic body leaves me a little hesitant to state it feels solid, but it truly does regardless of the flex when pumping water. The design makes it seem relatively simple to replace the plastic part if it ever were broken, but i wouldn't go out of my way to try it. The actual internal mechanism is quite solid.
It is a little heavy, but to be expected from a mostly metal filter that feels as reliable as this one.
Life Straw is compact, lightweight, and inexpensive, good for survival.
Sawyer is a good bang for the buck
Lifesaver Bottle filters out viruses as well, bit bulky and slow flowing, little pricey.
Katadyn Pocket Filter really is quality, good flow, simple and easy to fill up your water containers.
-It is expensive, but you are getting your hard earned cash out of it, because this filter is built strong, comes with a 20yr warranty, and water is one of the necessities needed to survive, why go cheap on your own safety and well being? It is a little heavy for a filter, but then again, when you really need water, are you going to trust your $20 plastic filter? Or are you going to trust you expensive aluminum filter. Ill carry the extra 1lb.
There are some less expensive alternatives but I am unwilling to risk it for my #1 preparedness priority. I like the idea of life straws but it seems more convenient to me to be able to pump for a few minutes and have a few liters of drinking water wherever I want to take it. Plus this has a much longer lifespan.
My wife and I like to hike and camp. As such, we often encounter the need to refresh/refill our camelbacks (water pouches) or water storage apparatuses in very remote places. This product does a great job at delivering a safe feed of water to our bag and water apparatuses. The only down fall is the water transfer is slow and the ceramic filter needs cleaned often (perhaps just a factor of water supply). However, for now, this product fits our every need and is relatively light weight, which is important when hiking long distances.
The only down side that we might face is in the winter months. Logically, this product needs to be kept above freezing at all times or you will risk any moisture left in the filter's pore to freeze, expand, and thus crack your ceramic filter, rendering it useless. As such, perhaps carrying it close to your warm back in a frame-pack while hiking is a great idea, we just have not figured it out a method for camping since you wouldn't want to carrying it on your person at all times. Just a little fuel for thought.
In either case, this product is great for our Spring, Summer, and Fall trips when boiling water for sterilization is not an option. On a side note, though we do trust this filters abilities, we still boil the water when camping via we have the means to easily do so and there is no reason to take a chance in that case. However, for our current needs, this product works great.
We hope this review helps.
