On both my thru-hikes I used a First
Need.  One filter lasted the whole
trail each time.  They may be awkward
to use, but they work, and I had a much
easier time than the MSR people with
their denture tablets, holding the
filter upside down and swinging it
around their heads, etc.  So far,
nothing I have seen on the list has
convinced me that any other filters
work any better.  For every one that
likes the PUR, you'll find 4 that had
their's clog on the first use.  Even
the outrageously expensive Katadyne is
heavy and hard to field clean.
