Thanks TR42, as usual I probably jumped the gun. I just looked at all the responses to the Water filter thread in the Kitchen section. Most of the responses there were really recommending the Sawyer Squeeze Filter. Did you look at that one too? I really like the looks of the Platypus system, although it is certianly heavier and would be a little more bulky. Moooooore gear!!!!
I can't remember what the rest of you used last year. I know that Walking Bear used the Base Camp System, but I don't want to pack that much. Anyone have a "tried and true" system you really trust and like? I definitely trust the research done by TR42, and I don't know if TZQ even drinks water. I know O&B and food have done more hiking/backpacking than I will probably ever do, so I appreciate any suggestions.
