Also, if you ever find that it's really hard to drink in it, just blow all the water out of the straw and start drinking again. It gets really hard to drink from the straw if you accidentally enter air inside.
That said, if you're looking at this, get Sawyer Mini instead. Lasts longer, is smaller, better filter, comes with other goodies, connects to drink bladder and common pop bottles. For only a couple bucks more.
I bougt it, dropped it in my backpack, and it now lives there.
it is small, has a huge capacity, covers on both ends and it is cheap when compared with any in line filters (especially if you take into consideration the filtering capacity)
taste is similar to other filters.
shape is particularly usefull if you want to drink of anything.
I have a ziploc with it so I can fill the ziploc and drink from it with the straw
Big kudos for the 'add on' programe which facilitated buying those cheaper items where the cost of shipping would be more than the item cost. Worked well for me here.
Pleased with the purchase.
