    Have an MSR Miniworks EX filter I can sell you. Great condition. PM me if you're interested.

    sawyer squeeze sp 132 is a good choice for under $50. lifetime warranty, 0.1 micron, 3.5oz and very good flow.

    you know i looked at that but dont really like that you have to dunk the bag and fill it up through that little opening and then have to squeese it into other containers since im not going to use the bag they give you for a container.
    just not my style
    thanks though

    How about paying for a new one if it has a 2,000,000 ga life span? Sawyerproducts.com. Their little filter is based off of dialasis machines and are used to supply water to 3rd world villages. They have a few different set ups including a gravity fed bag system. That little bugger works great, unlike the bulky Katadyn gravity bag, which doesn't work and sucks overall. You can order one on Amazon.com even.
