    SweetWater Microfilter Mountain Safety Research Water Filter - Sale on Water Filters at the Lonely Planet Gear Shop

    I have one of these I paid way less this was just the first site that popped up. Works great for backpacking what will you be useing it for camping? or SHFT type stuff?

    For SHFT stuff I'm really luckly I have about 50,000 gallion pool out back I figure with boiling and filtration it will be safe to drink

    If you only using it for camping IN THE U.S. just get a filteration one you don't need a purafication one for any water in the US are water is very clean

    I bought 1 micron filter bags on ebay, they will fit over a 5 gallon bucket. just pour water through slowly, and they will seperate out allmost everything , even most microbes. then just add a few drops of bleach to be 100% certain. presto CLEAN drinkable water.
    this is assumeing you are not getting your water from the river next to the old chemical sight, or downstream from the capped off land fill.

    hmmm, let's see... (pictures aren't of my items, but examples of what they look like)
    A katadyn combi plus filter,

    an MSR Mioxx,

    and a camelbak hydrolink in line filter made by MSR.


    Of course having some purification tablets, the ability to boil water if needed, etc are always good and backups to the above systems. I don't use all three together, but have all three for when they're needed. For home use for everyday tap water I use a brita maxtra. The filters we get here are German made, I'm going to assume the maxtra is offered in the states.

    The berkey's are nice. One of my family members uses their's everyday to filter their well water.
    Another neat option would be the filter at Monolithic Marketplace — Just Water, Ceramic Drip-Filter

    Having the ability to have clean, pure water is very important.
