On the AT, and recently the LT, I use the following...
PURIFIER/FILTER: approx. 40 cubic yards diatomaceous activatived soil,
including continuous recharge system (annual version)
in "open architecture" configuration.
It's brutally heavy, very old-fashioned, but built to take a lot of abuse.
(Once upon a time, it's what everybody used. Poor attention to competition
smashed the monopoly-hold in the past ten years.)
Also, actual in-pack weight is zero.
As a back-up, I buy a new bottle of Iodine for each trip. (You should see the
collection of un-opened PolarPure I've got....)
