"My search for the perfect filter is finally at an end... The nice thing about the Sawyer is that it can be used in three different ways. You're really spoiled for choice. In practice I found it to be excellent -- fast, effective, and hassle free. It weighs next to nothing--about 2 oz dry--and is very flexible. I'm very happy. It's so nice to just sit and watch the filter doing it's job instead of getting aggravated by the irritating pump."
