DO NOT BELIEVE Sea to Summit's claim that its Thermolite liner can boost a bag's temperature to anywhere near 15F! The bloody thing is so thin it reminds me of women's stockings -- you can pretty ...

Comparison to Potable Aqua above is incorrect. For bacteria and viruses, Micropur is just as effective and easy to use (15 minutes treatment time). It is only for protozoa (e.g. cryptosporidium) t...
