    This is something you could keep with you because it is very light when empty, yet great for a group of people when you need it.

    This water filter requires virtually no effort! All you need to do is fill the bag with water, hang it up and it filters using gravity (istead of a hand-operated pump). Katadyn filters are known for being some of the best around! This is also the best price I've seen (I purchased mine elsewhere for a lot more, but can't return it).

    Very durable. Have used this for camping for years, and it does a good job filtering water (as far as I can tell). I always boil water after filtering just to be safe.
