I brought this water filter as my previous water filter would not be up to the standard needed on my walking trip. I multi-day walked for 6-7 days and needed something I could trust to give me the cleanest fresh water possible in boggy moorland, wilderness, moving through very heavily used sheep country. I could not guarantee the water quality and took water from some very dodgy water sources bog/marsh, ponds, lakes, quarries, streams and ditches. I would not have taken water in these places with my other well known good water filter system. I can say I had no stomach issues at all, I felt fine the entire time of walking and drinking from natural water sources. The water tasted fine with no after taste, all the water was clear with no foreign matter. It is fast and I got about 2 litres of water in a minute, a lot faster than my other water system, 1 litre in about 5 minutes Other Walkers said 'you can't drink from that!', I took water and was fine, I never had to worry about carrying lots of water or finding water, which was a big relief to me. For me, it has made life easier and safer, I can trust the MSR Guardian to keep me safe from poor water sources while out in the wilderness long distance walking and camping. It is expensive, but to have clean drinking water and not be ill on the trail or long term illness from the water you drink, to me its cheap, my health comes first. It is now my go to water system and one of my most valuable items of kit. I would recommend watching the MSR videos on the filter, it is very interesting, it is well made and sturdy and comes in a nice bag. Woodlore sent the purifier very quickly and got it to me very fast, which was just as well, as it was a last minute purchase for the trip. Thank you for your very quick service and reply email, I am very happy with my MSR Guardian water Purifier and will use it on all my trips for years to come.
