	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
