      Comments about Katadyn Base Camp Gravity Feed Water Filter:

      Have used this and other filters. This one is perfect for basecamping. Packs in small. Just fill it up, hang it up, and start filling your water bottles. Forgot to bring it along on my last trip to the BWCA, and had to use my UV light. The UV light is effictive, but doesn't filter out the sediment. Won't forget it again!!

      Comments about Katadyn Base Camp Gravity Feed Water Filter:

      I have used this for light backpacking for two people, and for Boundary Waters Canoe trips for many. Also maintance during off season is easy!
      Only problem is that I am having trouble finding replacement filters. But since one filter is good for 200 gallons depending on water condition being treated, I have lots of time to find the filters.

        Comments about Katadyn Base Camp Gravity Feed Water Filter:

        I wanted a filter that would take up the least space and weight while hiking into the wilderness. It does exactly that, but after assembling and filling, it leaked like crazy! The water that came out of the tube was great (water going into the bag was already crystal clear), but unfiltered water could have easily dropped onto the outside of the tube and into my container without a drip loop. By morning, the bag was COMPLETELY empty (yes, the hose was clamped shut and raised above bag level). I'll use it again, but a HUGE disappointment....
