Clean, delicious water with this lightweight pumpI did a lot of research before buying this in Jan 2014, and now have used it heavily since, probably close to 15 different trips. Its very easy to use, and pumps water rapidly - I can fill my 3L camelback in just a couple minutes. Primarily I use this pump on backpacking trips, and have no complaints at all about carrying the little added weight for the return of having clean drinking water in the backcountry. Some friends go with steripens, but that doesn't do any filtration. It just sterilizes the water, so unless you've got very clear water to source from, you'll be drinking whatever sludge is in there. With this pump, no matter what the water looks like to begin with, you'll get clear and clean water out every time.
Other things - The pump appears well made and I haven't had any mechanical failures, even after quite a bit of use. I like the bag that everything fits into, which is durable and has a quality zipper. I live in CO where the water isn't very murky at all so I anticipate I'll be able to go at least another season or two without having to replace the internal filter.
