            This is the best you can get. Super solid build will last for ever. 13,000 gallons on one easy to clean filter. Comes with all cleaning and repair kits. Buy this and 1 extra filter, and you will never need to spend another penny on water filtration. Ever! Buy it!!

              Have owned one for many years, carry it backpacking. Bought this one for a gift. On one past trip it was the only filter still working after 3 days, provided clean safe drinking water for 10 scouts. Would not want to be in the back country without it.

                  Using this on my SOBO thru-hike of the AT. Yes it's heavier that most water treatment options but it's a very solid piece of gear that I plan on using for many trips. Well designed pump allows for easy operation. Comes with everything you need to maintain it. This includes a separate ziplock bag to store the output hose to avoid cross-contamination, silicon to keep the o-rings and threads sealed, and also comes in a nice zippered nylon pouch. This is by far the best water filter I've ever used.

                    Will be taking this one to Egypt with me, so I can relax knowing my water will be totaly safe and with good taste. Put a coffee filter over the pre filter screen, used the carbon filter on one of my nalgene's for the flavor and low and behold...I drank the water from my cousin's 10 gal. fish tank that held 2 turtle's...folk's ...it does not get any better than this....thirteen thousand gal's.? geeze. Some what a hefty price but look at it this way...you will only buy one water system and NEVER have to buy another. This system will be going with me on my second thru hike on the AT trail (first one=S-N, this time N-S, absolutely worth the extra weight and a very large worry off of my shoulder's.

                      The cons I selected are minor, and you should already be aware of them if your're considering making the purchase. That being said, you get a LOT of filtered water for the money. This is probably a once in a lifetime purchase for most of us.

                      Due to the turmoil in the middle east, tornadoes, floods and other disasters around the world, the demand and price for these have been increasing. Campmor offered this at the normal price despite price inflation everywhere else.

                          I could not give you a number. The speed at which the water filters is dependent on how new/clean the filter is, and the quality of the water. Water with a high amount of sediment would take longer to filter than clear water.

                          The Katadyn Pocket filter will get the same pathogens out of the water as the Hiker. The difference is that the hiker has activated charcoal, which will help remove some chemical contamination. The Pocket filter is a ceramic filter only no activated charcoal.

                        Although the quality of water makes a difference in the life of the filter, i.e. how often it has to be replaced, I would like to know on average, given medium quality of water with medium amount of sediment, how often I can expect to replace this filter. Every 100, 200 gallons, etc..???

                          If you do not pump out of lakes or dirty water you will probably never need a new element. Unless you hike the PCT 20 times. I now use a sponge with a rough side to clean the ceramic element. The sponge works as well as the thing they give you and you can use it for dishes. It was well worth the $200 I paid 20 years ago.

                          The ceramic filter does not have an expiration date. As long as they are stored in a cool, dry place, they will last the life of your filter.
