    MSR Trailshot..... interesting....

    MSR TrailShot™ Water Filter: Trail Running - YouTube

    Love to hear if anyone has tested this out and thoughts. I wouldnt put down my Steripen for it but looks like a neat idea for backup.

    Once my REI dividend comes in I'll try one out. Looks worth a shot.

    I ordered a Trailshot and it should be arriving this week. I'll hopefully get a chance to take it out this weekend and I'll update with my initial findings

    Looks good for what it is. Looks like it would work well in an area where a bottle is all you need.

    I'd like one for longer, self supported trail runs and mountain bike rides.

    I don't know if I'd want to fill a 6l bag with it

    Looking forward to some reviews

    I have one that I have used on a 4 mile hike.. I had a stream next to me up the trail and it was so nice filling up my canteen without pulling extra bags out like I would have to do with the sawyer mini. I would just stick the hose in the water and pump it with my hand and I was good to go... I think I could fill my 32oz canteen in about 45 sec.... for me that is awesome. no more trying to put water in the small mouth sawyer bags just to push it threw the filter.... and it only weighs 5.55 oz... THIS THING IS AWESOME!

    I may try it for 50$ not to bad based on reviews. Always good to have a few ways to sanitize water 5 ounces is easy to justify packing it in.

    I've used the mini squeeze for years filling my Nalgene bottle. But I am going to give the trailshot a try

    I decided I need one of these. Mainly for long trail runs. My knees are shot after humping too much water on my last 20 miler
