    Comments about Base Camp Filter:

    I recently purchased this water filtration system to use on a trip up to the summit of Mt. Mitchell here in NC. I have previously used an MSR Miniworks hand pump filter, and I have to say, after experiencing the capacity of this water filter, the ease of use, and the fast filtration rate, I think it might be time to retire the hand pump.

    Other reviews listed this item as bulky, but I found that wrapped up, it fit perfectly into a side pouch on my Kelty Redcloud 90L pack. I honestly cannot think of a complaint with this item. The gravity filtration design means you can fill it up, hang it from a tree, and revisit it whenever you need to fill your water bottles or bladders.

    We would fill this up, following the easy to follow directions, hang it from a tree, and would use it to refill everything in camp. For the group of six I hiked with, this was the only water filter we used, and the capacity of the bag made one trip to the river/creek enough for all of our needs (drinking, cleaning, cooking).

    If you're on the fence, in regards to this product, please do yourself a favor and purchase it. I can't guarantee you'll be as satisfied with it as I was, but if it is even a fraction as efficient for you as it was for me, I'm sure you'll be pleased.

      Comments about Base Camp Filter:

      Used this filter for a 5 day / 4 night Rae Lakes Loop Backpacking trip in Kings Canyon National Park. It was very nice to let gravity do all the work. Its pretty easy to fill at least it was in a place with flowing streams. I agree it would be hard in spots with very low or mucky water. In that case you would want another container to first let sediment sink to the bottom.
      The flow rate isn't as fast as say the hiker pro but since you aren't doing any work for it its not that big a deal. My friend had a 96 ounce nalgene cantene that we would fill ( it would take about 20 minutes or so I would say.

      I kind of wish that this filter had the bottle adapter that the hiker/ hiker pro comes with. Sometimes its hard to find flat ground under a tree.

      I suppose quickconnect fittings would be nice but not really necessary as by definition almost any time you take this filter out you are stopped for a while and it shouldn't be that big a deal to get your reservoir out.
