I bought 2 of them last summer. One i used while fishing, and the other my son used on a NOLS course and periodically on other backpacking trips. My first few thought on them are, try something else, overpriced, limited volume and water flow, angle you have to hold the bottle to get any water out of it is un-natural, and limited protection In general not worth the cost.

I use an Aquamira filter bottle and love it for day trips. I leave it empty and only fill it when I want to drink. I've found that I will actually drink a decent amount of water now , compared to when I used to just carry in 1 water bottle, or have to rely on a pump filter. Not bad for $29.95.
