Pros: The water tastes excellent (we just used hotel bathroom taps etc and had no issues) and nobody got sick during a 4 week trip. Also, where we were, hotels and the like used to burn plastic water bottles out the back so at least we didn't contribute to that. It easily paid for itself by the time the trip was over and was still going strong even after filtering approximately 8+ liters a day. For me, the big plus is that we didn't end up buying hundreds of plastic bottles.
Cons: You have to check the filter is securely tightened every so often because ours fell off a couple of times which ended up with unfiltered water in our drinking vessel. Also, ours leaked out of the side of the cap so I am not sure if this was a fault with the one we got.
I would definitely buy again.
I used it a few times from streams and once from River Coe. I'm paranoid so I chucked in a chlorine tablet as well. Some of the stream water was a bit discoloured. Water that came out the tap was clear and tasted great, couldn't tell there had been chlorine added. More importantly I didn't get the trots. So it seems to remove the chlorine and any nasties the chlorine didn't get.
I had an earlier version from a few years ago and this is a distinct improvement, it used to take ages to squeeze water out into a second bottle, this is much faster.
I'd have liked some kind of fastening on the top of the bottle that could be used to hook it to a strap on a rucksack to make sure it couldn't fall out of an external water bottle pocket. Nalgene's are great for that. The wrist strap thing is fairly useless to me.
I took the bottle to Santorini to try it out and filled it with tap water and it tasted dreadful, even worse then the water coming out of the tap. I am not sure if it actually works now so I'm a bit concerned.
I would have given it 5 stars but the lid (the nozzle itself) is not 100% reliable and it leaked few times. I kinda figured out what to do in order to avoid it (you need to close the nozzle and let the residue water flow out from it and then it's ok ) but just as a precaution I would still sometimes check it if it's ok and not leaking onto my clothes. Despite that little problem I will be buying it again. I use it everyday and it's my staple in my bag.
However, as mentioned I've only been using for two months and it's nearly shut down (filter clogged). It says it can do you 1600l I've maybe done 250l max and I've only ever used tap water with it. I would understand if I'd been drinking out of a lake.
I was hoping it would last the full 5 month I'm in Africa but I can hardly get anything out of it now.
Also the design is quite clever but it's execution isn't good enough. The flip spout pops off sometimes when you open it and the rubber ring below which is supposed to stop water from leaking moves sometimes so it leaks in your bag or when your using it.
Overall it does work and if you're going away for a few weeks it's a good option at the price point. Never tried any of the other ones on the market so can't compare.
