Review by: lextalion, 2006-08-04

I have now had this filter for almost 7 years. This is the same filter that I use to use in the Marine Corps during the early 90's.

I like the ease of uses in comparison to other filters. It is very ergonomical in action, which enables me to enjoy pumping several gallons of water at a time when needed.

There are other filters that can pump a higher volume of water and filter out more stuff. However for the size and weight - this is the filter for me.

I had troubles with it this last year when doing a desert trip, where I pumped from a tenjane that had a lot of allege. Plug up after two nalgene bottles. However I solved the problm with a pre-silt filter made by Sweetwater and a new cartiage. Worked like a champ again this last trip in Yosemite's Lyell canyon.
