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.
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.
One thing to note, don't keep it in you car if the temp drops below freezing as it can break and will loose it's functionality.
