I bought this filter for my backpacking Merit Badge scout group. We love it! It's light and doesn't require any pumping (main feature!). Filters a little slower than a pump filter, but then again, we usually process several gallons at a time. That wears you out by itself. The bag holds 2-3 gallons. We like it because you can hang it filled on a tree branch. Gravity does the work (except for the boys who have to lug it full up from the creek). The boys line up and just let the thing filter into their bottles or pots. No real effort and less chance for us to spread germs around.
