Helps to have the filter fit a Nalgene bottle.
Helps to have a filter cartridge thats easy to clean.
>it be able to filter out of the water?
Everything possible. I believe the one I use goes down to .001 microns or
something like that. At the time I bought it, it was the smallest you could
get without going military. I have a friend who got giardia once - this is
not a place to save $20.
I use the Pur Hiker. REI has them on sale now if you are a member btw.
Id check the backpacker magazine web site for gear reviews, but I can tell
you what youll find as far as recommendations<g>.
