Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down my favorite backpack water filter. I've had the earlier version of this unit for a few years now, and it's become my go-to water filtration device for backpacking. I recently used the unit on a rugged mountain hike where the access to water required a strenuous descent and ascent to bring water from a mountain stream back to the campsite. By using the GravityWorks system, I was able to pack 8 liters of water back to the camp in one trip, and then very easily filter and provide water for everyone in my group. It's by far the easiest system to use, as it basically does all the work for you via gravity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with my 2.0L system as welleen I have the 2.0L filter system;but I wanted to get the 4.0L for my family camp outs. I love that I can easily change bettween the 2.0L and the 4.0L. How well does it work? It can filter 4L faster than you can drink it. Under 3 minutes. A group of 8 can be refilled in about ten minutes well you enjoy your quick snackbreak. Easy to clean and back flush. I give it 24 hours to dry, before I put it back for storage. Great taste too. Beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy water filter system! I'm an amateur backpacker and avid outdoor enthusiast. Had this on 1 backpacking trip on the Shenandoah National Park (~3300ft elevation) so far on the Nicholson/Corbin Cabin trail. I've used it on a local Hughes river running through and walked it back to camp. Filtered 4 liters of water very quickly (~5 minutes) and very easy to use when hung. I'm so glad I got this because I was a person who use to always boil water or carried 3 L in with my camelbak; but this will certainly extend my trips in the future! The plastic bags are of high quality and everything seems durable. I've kept the clean components in a plastic baggie so they stay nice and dry. I would highly recommend this product and look forward to using it more in the future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Philmont Proven My Crew used several of these at Philmont this summer and they performed very well. The only time we had problems was when we were forced to attempt to purify very dirty stagnant water from a stock tank due to an emergency. Dirty water clogs the system very quickly, rendering it useless. Despite numerous backflushes, we could not get this system to work in that situation and were forced to use other means to obtain potable water (yes, we did prefilter the water to the best of our abilities). Always have a backup means of purificaiton with you in the backcountry.... That being said, this system is great when you have fairly clear water to work with and the flow rate is very high. This system is a staple for crew/group backcountry camping!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from you'll never use a pump filter again this filter is great. yeah after a lot of uses it slows down. i wasnt sure how the system would hold up but i havent had any problems with durability as far as the plastic sleeves go. the only knock i have on the produce is that the "dirty" water bag has like a ziplock seal that does not seal. i talked to them and they said something about getting it wet and really working to get it closed but i cannot. not a big deal since i usually backpack where there are lots of water sources. but i could see how it could be a problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love this thing! I purchased the gravity 2.0 last year. I wanted a system that was simple, didn't require extras outside of the system itself, and light. Our first trip we took it to Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario. I dipped the "dirty bag" in the lake held it high and watch the water flow. Then walked briefly back to our campsite and started dinner. Couldn't be easier. We are now headed to the Sawtooth mountains in Idaho where I'm looking forward to using it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the system but hate the filter. The first time I used this filter system it worked great. The water I was filtering had a yellow tent to it while in the dirty bag but came out clear and delicious after filtering. I tried back flushing the filter as directed but water would not flow through the filter backwards. I chalked it up to being a new tight element. The second time I used it; the water was moving very slow, so I tried back flushing again but still no flow. I gave the clean bag a little squeeze and water started to back flow. After that I got about three uses out of the filter before it stopped filtering. It filtered roughly 18 liters before the filter died. Luckily I found a home store that was selling a very large but usable filter and once again I have clean water. I may have just got an odd ball bad filter. I really like the quality of the bags though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boy Scout camping Our Boy Scout troop has been using two 4L GravityWorks filters for several years now and have been very, very happy with them. We originally owned pump type filters that were used at Philmont as well as our regular troop backpacking trips, but filtering water took so very long and the boys always complained about how difficult they were to use. We purchased our first 4L GravityWorks Water Filter about 5 years ago and quickly bought another after we saw how easy it was to use and how quickly it filtered the 4 liters while we went about the other business of setting of camp. The only complaint that we have is that over time it has become extremely difficult to re-seal the tops of the bags even after we have followed the Platypus' instructions to fix this problem. That issue aside, the Gravity Works system is highly recommended for any type of group camping.
