The MSR Sweetwater Purifier System is a water filter with purification system for backpacking and travel. A beautiful stream, lake or pond can look clear and clean, but you'd better filter that water before taking a gulp. This lever-action filter measures at just 2" x 7.5" and weighs only 14 ounces, but this little guy charges, filtering water at a 4-to-1 mechanical advantage. Not only does it pump water fast, but the SweetWater Purifier Solution kicks virus butt, effectively inactivating them so you can drink up without getting sick. Fill up that Nalgene and get ready to cook dinner or head back onto the trail fully hydrated to eat up more miles before finding camp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works every time without fail I have been using this filter for a little a year now and it has worked perfectly. It was recommended by a friend and after looking at the other offerings out there I felt it was the best fit for me. Its fairly light, folds up small and is easy to use. I mainly just use the filter to produce very clean tasting water. I have only used the drops once when the water was stagnant. I also recommend the prefilter if you're going to be pumping cloudy water or just want to extend the filters life. The included adapter makes it easy to fill your water bottle or MSR water bladder.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 70% of what you really want in a filter. Did this filter get the job done? Sure. Did I get sick? No. Great job right? Sort of. My issue with this product is that it required constant cleaning. Meaning after filtering under 10 liters of clear mountain spring water in the Sierra Nevadas this little guy began spitting water out. According to the instructions, this meant it required complete dismantling, a thorough scrubbing and rinsing. Okay, fine done and done. 4 liters later it's sputtering water out again. After about every 4 liters it required dismantling, scrubbing and rinsing.,, Bottom line, it worked. Just not as well as I would expect considering the price tag. I would have hated to see what would have happened if I had to filter silty water. I would have rather spent my time fishing rather than cleaning a fussy filter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Dependable I've been using my Sweetwater Filter System for many years now and have found it to be a very durable and dependable filter. The best part of it is having a filter you can brush out after pumping from a lake full of sediment. I've been on many backpacking trips when other filters friends were using clogged and couldn't be cleaned making it very difficult if not impossible to pump. The MSR Sweetwater I still use was a trip saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product! I just purchased this product to finally have my own. For the last 15+ years, my Dad and I have been using his (the original) and it has continously performed. I have not had the oppurtunity to use my new one, but based on my Dad's original one (and nothing appears to have changed) I can vouch that this is a product to count on in the backcountry. Easily field maintainable and effective product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultra Compact and works! After comparing models for months and deciding that the MSR "Guardian" was the best filter for my needs, I decided to buy the sweet water purifier system as a starter filter. The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is because I still need to add the solution to kill viruses. Once I bite the bullet on the more expensive Guardian system, the sweet water will be a compact back up system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bikepacking! I bought this item in early spring for a couple trips I have planned this year. I could not be happier with it. It packs up great and is lightweight for when space and weight are a premium!! Would highly recommend this item. Perfect mix of size and weight and cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I never use a water filter before this one. It is simple to use. I have filtered some nasty water that came out clear and great tasting. When filtering nasty water, it will stop up but a few strokes with the included brush and its back in service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't have to carry water! I purchased this product as a gift for my husband (what's his is mine). Was getting tired from carrying so much water to the mountains. Bought this version bc I used this from a friend before. It works great and the mountain water tastes so good!
