Convert your GravityWorks into a Basecamp Spigot and Hydration Bag Refilling Station (see image) A very simple and efficient way to create a basecamp spigot and hydration bag refilling station (see image for details). Just add a few inexpensive hydration tube quick-connect adapters to the clean filter line and to your backpack’s hydration bag line and you’re in good shape even for trekking/expeditions. But I would not bring this setup to a place where I did not know moderately clean water existed unless you a) want to clog your hallow-fiber filter and b) have a way of accessing very low…

Plastic is not strong enough to hold filter hanged!!! in order to filter the water you are suppose to rang the dirty bag. problem is that after 2 days using my new filter, the plastic holes that holds the straps are almost falling apart… too bad, I was really enjoying that filter a lot. would be really easy to have a stronger way to hold it up.update: just called support that were very nice and will send me a replacement bag, since it should have been a manufacturing problem…

BEST Water filter! Period. Incredibly handy! Before buying this I did an exhaustive amount of research on water filters. What sold me on this is the fact that you can get a lot of water in one shot, it filters FAST, and most importantly… NO PUMPING! If you’re backpacking this is a no brainer. Water weighs 8.3lb per gallon and an adult needs about a gallon a day, so bringing water on a multi-day trip is not an option. This weighs less than a pound at 13.6oz! This can also save you money in the long run. The filter lasts…
