Works quite well and doesn't take hours as BruinPoint eludes. Maybe 5-10 minutes to filter a 3L bladder of water into something else.
Maybe when the filter is new. Mine definitely doesn't work that fast. 5 minutes with squeezing might get me 3L, and that's spring water near the source.

I'm also in the camp of having bad experiences with my Sawyer despite going over-board on clean water sources and back-flushing. Care to share your experience with the RapidPure? I didn't see any information on the lifespan of the filter, although that of course depends on the water source you use.i hated using the sawer inline and for gravity. really slow and always getting plugged. using the RapidPure scout so far this year and so far (limited use) it gets it done fast.
