Steri-Pen is light, easy and effective
October 13, 2011
The Steri-Pen is an incredibly easy and effective tool for purifying water in the backcountry. It only takes a minute to completely kill all bacteria in your water. I took it on an eight day trip in Colorado and it was wonderful. It barely took up any room in my pack, the batteries lasted the whole trip, and I still got to have that good, mountain taste to my water. No terrible taste like with chemical tablets.
Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
