Have used three times so far backcountry camping. Worked well as a base camp filter, except the flow rate is a little slow.
Light. Good volume for base camp.
Slow flow rate.
Time will tell
To be completely honest I haven’t tested it yet. The mere reason for the purchase was to settle the mixed reviews I’ve seen.
Only time will tell which side of the debate this product will stand.
Very effective and easy to use
Water does not filter as fast as advertised
Could be great, but kinda slow and bag got hole 1st trip
It is light and great for base camp convenience . No back flushing . Once you work on getting the plastic’y taste out of the bag( lemon water- freeze - rinse) AND the filter ( lots of flushing then got creative with sitting dirty side in lemon water and then rinsing). Took time but worth it if you dislike the plastic taste.
Slow- but overall it worked well. The bag part is rather fragile. Second day on trail and it had a pin hole in it! A total drag and will probably return it. Temp fix with duct tape worked , but 2 days?? I’m not that tough on gear and it wasn’t stored with a knife or anything.
Decent but expensive long term
Great flow rate and very easy to use. I like the wide mouth opening for filling up the water. It's nice to not have to wait so long to fill up and you can drink directly from the device which saves time while on a trail.
somewhat difficult to clean/backwash. It seemed easy from the reviews and description but i find it never gets fully cleared out. also, this can be expensive down the road because you will have to replace the filter more frequently than other products due to the inferior cleaning method and materials. That said, you sacrifice long term cost for the luxury of speed, storage and convenience. .
Best filter I have tried
Great flow rate makes water filtering chore so much quicker. Lightweight Easy to clean
None so far.
easy to use lightweight and packs up extreamly small
Small, easy to use and lightweight
haven't found any so far
Easy to use
Lightweight, wide mouth to gather water with, only one bag and filter piece. Tried it on an overnight trip last week, it worked better than expected. It was easy to collect water and quick in filtering the water. I would recommend this over the 2 bag gravity filters.
Hard to close valve with only one hand when other hand is holding a cup that it is filtering in.
