I have the larger PUR water filter. I enjoy it but you have to be careful with it. One year on the Alaskan Tundra we took water from what looked like a crystal clear lake. In less than a gallon we fowled our filter and had to resort to a back up MSR purifier. The replacement filter was $70.00 and was 250 miles away (expensive gallon of water) Now we cut a coffe filter and cover the pick up filter. This is to prevent small particals from fowling the filter media. When your on the Tundra for two weeks and hundreds of miles from town you need to back up everything. I now, also carry a Katadyne purifier. I use my PUR for it's ease of use but carry my Katadyne for it's relieability. You can clean the katadyne media several hundred times without replacing the filter media.
