  Trust me I followed the maint procedures for both filters to the 
letter.  We even went so far (when we new the water had a lot of silt in 
it) to filter the water to remove some of the silt and dirt before using 
the filter.  I have had nothing but problems with PUR filters. A friedn 
of mine that hiked with an msr has had none.  He is the only person I 
have seen with a MSR filter and the only person I have seen that didn't 
complain about the filter that he was using clogging. Everyone I have 
passed on the trail that carried a PUR or Sweetwater filter had problems 
with them clogging. (maybe 15 or 20 people).  Since he was the only 
person I have known to use an MSR I was wondering if anyone else had 
used the filter.  I will not use a PUR or sweetwater filter.
