Sweetwater sells a pre-filter which attaches in-line to the intake hose 
(closer to the unit itself).  It looks like a automotive fuel filter and 
costs a couple of bucks, but much cheaper than a new filter.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but the Hiker has a 1-year no 
clog guarentee, so as long has you buy it not too long before your hike, 
you should be covered.  Just keep your reciept (maybe have someone who 
can fax it to Pur if they need proof?)
