I have hiked with both the Explorer and Hiker and both have crapped out on me
with a clogged filter. I have also hiked with someone with the Sweetwater and it
clogged on them also. I wonder if anyone has hiked for very long without a clogged
filter or if it is the norm? The longest trip I have had has been two weeks. I
couldn't imagine hiking the AT and having to replace the filter every two weeks. ANyone
have any luck with a filter that has made it all the way? How about the Kathadin or MSR
