"This is my number one choice of filters when I backpack. At 16 oz, it's a bit heavy for some of my ultra light friends but one of the lightest backpacking "purifiers" out there. Plus, because General Ecology does not market this purifier to the outdoors stores like REI, you are able to get a hiking filter that will stand toe to toe or even surpass the quality of purifiers (like MSR's Guardian) in this category."
