    I had the chance to try one of these out the other day on the north fork of the CDA. I was extremely impressed by the speed, ease of use, and small size of this setup. I have used MANY other water purification devices, and this is now my new favorite. It filters as fast as you can squeeze it out of the bag!!!!

    Worth checking out, I know REI has them for demos, prices vary online...

    Yep, these are pretty sweet systems. Several manufacturers these days are using filters like the Sawyer's developed for the medical industry, specifically dialysis machines. Just watch out for the price of a new filter when the time comes.
