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 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 The best water filtration system if you travel in large groups. I love this system, definitely an upgrade from my old MSR hand pump filter. I got this system because I tend to travel in a large groups when hiking. The 4.0L system allows me to provide enough water for the whole group. I also like the fact that I can fill my balder and still carry an extra 4L of water, just in case I have to travel between two watering points that are fare apart. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic filter system 4 liters of clean water in about 4 minutes! While everyone else is sitting around trying to figure out if their Steripen is going to work today or turning the little crank on their pump filter, you will be heating water for coffee. Backflushing is straightforward. It would be nice if there was a valve on opening of the Clean bag so you don't take a shower. Great system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gravity filter out there! After days and days of research and exploring DYI options for a gravity filter I decided the Platypus Gravityworks was the best backpacking option for myself, girlfriend, and two dogs! The whole system is very simple and easy to use, backflush is a breeze. Awesome product and no PUMPING. Sit back, stir the fire, and let gravity filter water for the group.,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best filter out there Get the 4L version, the 2L will probably only annoy you. Also get the carbon filter attachment. In any event this filter is perfect for almost any situation.
