          Comments about MicroFilter:

          I got my sample a smell of amines running out from the filter. Yes I know this smell because I worked with such chemicals in my laboratory. I feel it is coming from the filter rather that the bag.

          Have tried to leach it out with warm water but still find a hint of the taste after 10 fills. I wonder if I need another carbon after-filter to eliminate the after-taste.

          Other than this, the wide mouth water bag is perfect for frequent fill and drink cycles on a day trip where you expect to have streams readily available.

                Comments about MicroFilter:

                Pay particular attention to the description that you cannot maintain it in the field. That means if you clog it, it's toast, or you are pretty much restricted to using it in clear water, which is not always available. Worse though, is the fact that the filter cannot be replaced after the 500 liters claimed. How short sighted is that? So you spend 80 bucks and then throw the whole thing in the landfill. If the manufacturer could fix that, this would be a clear winner.

                • Sipping And Walking

                Comments about MicroFilter:

                I'm a long distance back-country runner. I want a way to refill my water bottles. Options are a battery powered Steri-pen, a heavy or bulky pump, iodine tablets, or something like this product that is light weight and can ideally quickly refill my water bottles at a creek or lake. Unfortunately, it takes a while to fill a water bottle by this method. Squeezing the water out takes a long time and requires forearms like rock-climbers.
                My kid took it to the river and played with it, sucking water directly from the river. I noticed that she would suck, then lift the "straw" up and use gravity to help finish the sip. I think it takes the squeeze and the sucking to make it really work well. It just isn't what I needed, which is a fast easy way to filter some water in the backcountry so that I can get back to running.
