posted by isotco on 05/19/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Very compact and light weight
- Its ceramic filter should provide decent filter capacity
- Easy to use and clean
- Comes with additional o-ring lubricant and sand papers for cleaning the filter
- Build quality is good and there are no flimsy parts
Cons:
- Slow, does not produce water all that fast
- A bit tricky to put back in its case
- Its float smells like plastic
- Unknown filter efficiency
Other:
Cannot comment on exactly how efficient the filter is, but it clears up muddy water just as well as a certain competitors ceramic mini filter.
Bottomline:
Good lightweight hiking filter for people who like to keep their backpack as light as possible.
