    All my searching and I decided on, Sawyer 3-Way Inline Water Filter. The filter is good and guaranteed for up to 1,000,000 gallons.. How you would keep track of that is beyond me.. But I imagine it's guaranteed for life by that statement. It is equipped with a 0.1 micron absolute hollow fiber membrane filter.. Protects you from 99.99999% bacteria and 99.99999% protozoa and cysts... The filter weights in at a whole 3oz.. So it's definitely light enough for the hardcore backpacker..

    Welcome aboard from Lakeland Florida. From your post would love to meet up on the trail sometime and listen to your experiences. As far as the Sawyer I expect it to outlast me.
