Over all the years of backpacking and being in the wilderness I have never had such a great water filtration system as MSR’s Mainstream Gravity Water Filtration System.
When I started tripping when I was very young we always used the MSR Miniworks hand pump, which takes a long time and you need to physically pump all the water by hand. This water filter is very dependable and I still have my old one that I started out with in working order…but when I first tried this new gravity filter I was hooked.
It’s so easy to use, all you have to do is fill up the dirty reservoir with water from the lake or stream and then hang it in a tree and the clean reservoir fills up with purified water. You can even take off the clean reservoir and just use the shut off valve to have clean water on demand.
