OK, have any of you used the MSR AutoFlow gravity filter?http://cascadedesigns.com/MSR/Water-Treatment-And-Hydration/Basecamp-Water-Treatment-And-Hydration/AutoFlow-Gravity-Filter/product
Been reading unfavorable reviews of the Katadyn BaseCamp and favorable comments about the Sawyer. I want simplicity, so the Sawyer is out for me. Negative comments about the Katadyn Base Camp include clogging, but I've also heard about clogging with the Hiker pump filter - which I have - and I have never experienced any problems with that whatsoever. And some people find a few minutes of pumping to be a tedious, difficult ordeal (what's the matter, you late for a nap in the hammock?)), something which is totally lost on me.
I don't want to hang multiple bags or make it look like the camp houses a dialysis clinic, and I don't want to learn some "backflushing" concept and I don't want to rig up some ingenious method of creating a better gravity filtration mousetrap. I want to hang one bag of water on a branch and let it pur/trickle into our smaller water bottles.
So it's between the Base Camp and the MSR linked above. MSR is an awesome company so I would expect a great product. Any experience with this one? Thanks!
....enjoy every sandwich.
