I use a sweet water guardian filter. Sweet water offers an inline "Pre Filt=
er" which Removes 5-10 micron particles before they reach the main filter. =
This Pre filter weighs almost nothing and could be used with many filter sy=
stems. It will increase the life of your filter and It costs less than $10 =

  On our section hike of the AT we carried a PUR Hiker filter.  We are stil=

  dip water for filtering.  The mud particles settle in the bag ...Then we

  the Pur Hiker and its never clogged.
