I primarily use a Sweetwater Guardian (now called a MSR Sweetwater) Filter on my backcountry trips and occasionally a MSR MIOX Purifier, which I always keep in my vest since the weight of the MIOX is only around 4 ounces. I've owned the Sweetwater since 1997, and other than the required filter replacements, it's been trouble free. I bought my MIOX around 2006, and it has been very reliable, although I'm not wild about the taste that the water has after being treated. Country Time Lemonade Mix seems to take care of the taste issue okay.
