Nice and Compact
I recently purchased MSR's Sweetwater Microfilter Water Filter. I haven't had a chance to use it in the field, but out of the box it is very easy to use, quite compact, and lightweight. It will be a great addition to my next BWCA trip.

Great product! Well made and works well
Used in sub freezing weather without a hitch. Well manufactured and fairly compact. Item worked as advertised and held up in very adverse conditions.

Works Great
I recently partook it a 3 day backpacking trip and the other members were using Iodine tablets to filter water. I used the the SweetWater Microfilter and it worked excellent! By the end of the trip, everyone was drinking my water.

gets your water clean
It's prity simple, pump water out of stream and into your bottle. Gets it clean. I also purchased a pre filter. They say it makes it last longer, but I haven't had it long enouph to know how true that is. for the price, you cant go wrong

great filter/purifier
Owner for six years. Used it under trying conditions in hiking and camping trips in Ghana, Africa. Easy to use and travel with. Never failed and I never got sick. Left it in Africa and purchased a new one yesterday. Strongly recommended. Bullet proof.
