katadyn water purification
Ive had mine for a couple of years now. It goes with me on every kayak trip and never had a problem with it. I would highly recommend it.

filter is awesome. even though i got it under a week i was still anxious to get it. it took me a while to look through the parts and how to use them. now that i know im ready to filter. 500 gallons awesome. as a heads up there is this grey liquid that comes out first which is probably excess charcoal which is normal. anyone notices that your all good. look up [product] videos to get an idea of your product just as an overview. ill for sure make room for my BOB.

We used these filters in the boundary waters. They were great very easy to use.

I used one of these on a 2 week trip to Voyager National park. It was flawless! I did have a back up straw, but it was never used. If you need a filter your life depends on, that weights very little...get one. Also it screws onto around half of all water bottles made, a nice feature.

Vario is one of the BEST
I bought the vario for my 50 miler hike I did and it worked great. I am glad I did not get any thing else.
