Water Filters for Backpacking

Water Filters for Backpacking-
Knowing what water filters are out there is very important so that you don’t make a mistake and take something that is too heavy or just inconvenient. There are 3 main types of water filtration systems: a pump system, a squeeze system, and a gravity system. In this video I review the Katadyn Hiker Pro pump system filter which I used for 18 days on the Pacific Crest Trail, and I talk about the Sawyer Squeeze Mini.
