Use the Sawyer lightweight 3-way inline filter water treatment system to filter water directly from a river, lake or stream along the trail or from other non potable sources. Works great as a hydration pack reservoir filter for long hikes where the water source is in quesion. You can even just attach it to a household faucet filter. For Hydration packs, insert the filter inline with the drinking tube, then simply fill your reservoir with unfiltered water and drink away. As long as the filter is inline on your hydration pack you don’t need to worry about cleaning the reservoir. You can also attach a drink tube of your choice (sold separately) to the filter, then submerge the filter into dirty water and drink directly from the source. This is a great alternative to carrying potable water long distances or while out canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, or travelling abroad. Filter cartridge measures 1.75 x 3.5 inches. Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries - everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

Perfect! When I'm on the trail I can now quickly fill the bladder with the murkiest of water and go -- no pumping; no waiting. Every time I take a sip the water runs from the bladder through the filter and into my mouth. I didn't even notice any difficulty drawing.
Note that over time, especially with particularly dirty water, the filter does get clogged, as noted in the instructions. It's an easy fix out in the field -- take a mouthful of clean water (the filter never got completely closed; just very slow) and force it through the filter going the other way. Done! If you're at home there is an included tool for hooking it up to your sink to do this backwash.
-Does not remove viruses. (No water filtration system of this type can remove viruses, only purifiers and chemical tablets can.)
-Periodic back flushing is suggested.
-Do not freeze.
-Do not use soap to clean.
I found that the fittings included in this kit are compatible with Camelbak's Quick Link fittings. In fact, they appear to be made by the same company "CPC", and are the same fittings. The only difference is that the female fittings included in the Sawyer kit does not prevent flow when the male fitting is not connected. I have set up my Sawyer filter up to filter as I drink from my "dirty" reservoir. Using additional Camelback fittings on my other reservoirs, and if I happen to carry a second reservoir, I made it so I can also filter water from the "dirty" reservoir into the "clean" reservoir.
Additionally, the included back flushing kit is actually useful in filling the Camelbak ("clean") reservoir with tap water without removing the reservoir from the pack.
This filtration system does not remove smaller particles such as viruses or chemicals. Therefore, extra consideration must be used when attempting to consume unfavorable waters.
I use this as an inline filter with my Geigerrig Hydration Engine (3-Liter) . It's a little bulkier/heavier than some other inline filters, but you basically don't have to worry about ever replacing it. Flow is good with the added pressure from the giegerrig and I haven't had to back flow it much. I haven't traveled abroad since getting it, but the tap adaptor is a great addition that will provide me with extra peace of mind.
Water always tastes good, If I'm worried about beavers or whatever else I use iodine or bleach instead if I don't feel like boiling.
It spliced right into my camelback bladder's tube. and I hardly notice it. The tube comes out my pack and the filter is right above my pack allowing the tube to extend over my shoulder and I can sip whenever I like.
I've used it for filtering friends water too. Just fill up my bladder and squeeze into their cup or whatever.
It's probably overkill but you can never be too careful when you're bumbling around the woods.
Two thumbs up! But be sure you prefilter the water with a bandana at least. Mines been working so well for so long I think because I take care of it.
