    I have a very similar set up with a modified sawyer bag for my dirty resovoir and a sawyer 1 gallon dirty bag for family trips. Sawyer also makes a clean coupler that can be purchased on amazon and it can be used to replace the tornado tube.

    There's a continuing discussion in the water treatment area of our Donating Members' section, and mostly the jury seems to be out. Like I said mine has only seen a few trips so far, but so far it's my favorite by far.
    Has anyone rigged this in a gravity setup? Looks like a good day hiking filter in the bottle setup.

I believe it is just a squeeze with a special .1 micron membrane in the bottle. I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Hopefully up in Algonquin when the ice melts.
    Thanks! Man I miss canoe camping! Thankfully Colorado has its upsides too though. Going fishing tomorrow due to the great CO tailwaters we have. Gotta love that warm dam release.

    By all means, let's argue about whether or not a hammock will hurt a tree. All the while ignoring the fact that there is an island of garbage the size of Texas floating in the Pacific ocean. Or how about the fact that over 75% of the world's nuclear reactors are leaking...

    We have been using them in the BWCA as a low budget gravity system for several years. They work wonderful.
