Oh, OK, fine, I'm in.
Moving from the MSR Sweetwater - mostly due to the quality of its filter and small pore size - the Sawyer Squeeze has been a godsend. I've rigged it up with a single 1.5L Evernew dirty reservoi...

Apologies, Jesse, if this response is orthogonal to your core question, but I (and Mark Verber, and many others) are wedded to the FlyRoc 310's. I'm on my third pair. They're based on a...

Re: I would add this advice, also.
I seam sealed my MLD eVent miits them with a commercial tube of Seam Seal or somesuch (some McNett thang), the first time I've not mixed my own. Just turned the ol' thing inside out and it ...
