I've been using a homemade gravity filter system utilizing the Sawyer filter for the last two Summers and it's fantastic. This year I added the Camelbak fresh reservoir carbon filter and highly recommend it. It only weighs an ounce or so and does a great job removing the "lake funk" taste. It is easy to add it to gravity as well as pump systems using available adapters.

somebody I know tried the Sawyer filter. While trying to rig up the system it dropped on the floor and shattered into a number of pieces. So unless you bring a backup, I'd suggest wrapping it in some tape to "ruggedize: it or just be extra careful,
