Steripen Water Purifier
I am trying to pick a good water purification system for backpacking. Has anyone used the Steripen (treats water with UV light)?
I haven't used Steripen but, I have used Aqua Star which is basically the same. I'm careful to only use it on clear water and still carry a back up pump in case of dirty water if I'm going to an area where I don't know what the water is like. I've always carried an empty Nalgene bottle in my pack so carrying the Aqua Star only adds a few more ounces.
