Review by nihiladrem on Apr. 06, 2011
The size and weight are pretty nice for a ceramic filter. The filter lasts for a long time when treated properly, and even after much abuse this filter is still working well.
The hose can often be to short for some of the types of water filling locations you encounter in the backcountry. Also this is not a particularly fast filter, and while it is nice that it attaches to a nalagene it can be awkward to use in filling anything else such as a bladder. The hose nosel does not always sink nicley below the surface.

Filters water, easy to take apart and clean/service
a little heavy/bulky
requires constant cleaning if there's the slightest sedimentation in the water (I usually have to clean it out after each liter)

Quick, effective and lightweight. Perfect right? Well yes as long as you take care of your filter element. My carbon filter expired prematurely and led to my filter not working on a trip I was on in PA. That said I made due and after replacing it was fine. Make sure you dry it out properly between uses and store according to directions and you will be fine. 4 Stars because it gets slow after using a couple times until you clean it out.
Replacement filter price.
Nothing in this price range. When I find the perfect filter though I'll let you know ;)

Light, easily field maintainable.
Short hose, can be hard to keep the nozzle below the surface of the water if it's swift moving.
When our water main cracked and all our pipes filled with muddy water for several days, I filled a tub with the stuff and filtered a few liters of water to get me through using this thing. The filter was absolutely filthy, but I was able to clean it in just a minute or two, and it's held up well since. Bomber!

Fast, simple, field maintainable, screws onto standard water bottle. Clean it often and it will work better.
