The Adventurer is half the size of the SteriPEN Classic. Because its fast (48 seconds for 16 ounces), light (under 110g/4 oz), easy and effective, its perfect for hikers and campers who value powerful products in small packages with no loss of effectiveness.

This SteriPen Adventurer is lightweight but also durable. We keep it in an empty planters peanut container (about .7 liters and 5 oz) and use the containter to collect water to be purified with the SteriPen before adding it to our bladders. Purifying a half of a liter at a time can take awhile when you're filling two 3-liter bladders, but still less time than purification tablets or droplets.
The initial cost can be a con, but a year later, we are glad we made the investment. Highly recommend.
The second one, a Steripen Adventure Opti purchased through a third party vendor, failed this last week after I accidently held it under a water faucet while cleaning up my gear after an extended hike. Since it turned on after this incident, I assumed it still worked, and only learned of it's failure on the first day of my most recent outing.
I have averaged approximately 600 to 1,200 miles hiking annually for the last 4 years, so these Steripens got some use. They provide a great, easy to use, way to filter water on the trail. However, they fail when immersed in water for any length of time whatsoever?? It seems to me that a product designed to filter water should also be designed to survive some minimal level of immersion in water.
I would understand the failure if I had neglected to properly tighten the battery door (there is a rubber O-ring presumably used to keep water from getting inside the device), but that is not the case here.
The user manual states something to the effect that "while the battery compartment is designed to be water-resistent, it is not waterproof." I purchased the second one because the filtering pros far outweighed the cons. But at this point, there is no way I can justify sinking more money into a water filter that breaks when it gets wet, and contacting Steripen for relief seems kind of silly when their technical material tells you up front that the product is not waterproof. Why not?
Just thanking my lucky stars I always carry a backup supply of Micropur tablets...
