Over the years I have bounced around with water filters, purifiers, tablets, iodine, etc. I always came back to the MSR Hyperflow filter because of it being the lightest,easiest and quickest way for me to get water in the backcountry. It was a pain in the butt though with maintenance and even with regular backflushing I had to buy a new filter for it every year. Every spring I anxiously checked new product releases hoping something new would come out that would be as light and effective always nothing. Last fall I noticed a new filter on the market called the Sawyer Squeeze water filter and was really intrigued by the weight and size of it. After looking at it though I dismissed it thinking that you really needed flowing water that was deep enough for you to fill it up. I have a handful of hunting spots where water is scarce and finding flowing water is almost impossible. For whatever reason (most likely its scant 3oz!) I decided to pick one up this summer even though I had my reservations and use it on a scouting trip for high country Muley's. After one trip I was hooked and realized this was the answer to my water filtration problems. Not only is the filter exceptionally easy to use but it has a ton of advantages over traditional filters.
