  • Joshua C. Santa Rosa CA

    Likes: Tiny, individually wrapped with instructions on each one. Hardly weighs anything. Only gave 4 stars because we havent had to use them yet--I carry them on all trips as backup to our pump filter.

    Dislikes: Nothing.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Not sure yet of taste.... Giving a review before using.

    Dislikes: Just found out it takes FOUR HOURS!!!! Most I've seen from friends are a half hour. By the time 4 hours goes by I could hike to a town for a water source!!!! Would have liked to have known this before purchasing. Using as a back-up anyway.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: small and light option for backpacking

    Dislikes: time required - 4 hours for full treatment. some sites indicate 30 mins for virus/bacteria treatment

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: As far as I can tell they work.
    I didn't get sick so I'll just have to assume they worked.
    I mainly carry them as a backup though and have only used them twice.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Max N. Philadelphia PA

    Likes: Works perfectly hooked up in-line to my bladder.

    Dislikes: It's pretty bulky.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Its lightwieght, great for emergencies, not too bad on the price.

    Dislikes: Nothing.

  • Andrew M. SANTA CRUZ CA

    Likes: As far as I can tell it worked

    Dislikes: No complaints

  • Joel F. Cuyahoga Falls OH

    Likes: Does the job effectively, says on the packaging that it takes 4 hours to kill all bacteria, but most of them are killed after about 20 minutes or so. With this stuff I can leave my pump filter at home and save some weight. I have changed over to using this as my primary water treatment method. Leaves minimal aftertaste.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: They are easy to pack and use. Nice back up plan.

    Dislikes: No complaints.

  • Howard B. Flushing NY

    Likes: Easy to carry

    Dislikes: Important to have on the trail & should not be without

  • Allen O. Indianapolis IN

    Likes: Simple purification.

    Dislikes: all good.

  • Charles B. Pryor OK

    Likes: Easy to use, very little taste issues.

    Dislikes: Marked as corrosive so may be an issue with mailing or taking on airplane

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: It is effective against Viruses, Bacteria, Giardia and Cryptosporidium. The aftertaste is minimal, and the product is a good value for the money.

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Very convenient back up for water purification. I carry a filter pump and then bring a couple of these tablets along as a back up. You can't beat the weight or compactness of these tablets.

    Dislikes: they take 4 hours to work so you need to plan out your water needs carefully when using these tablets especially if you want them to be your primary purification method.

  • steven p. mcdonough GA

    Likes: Never got sick so it must work...

    Dislikes: Takes 4hrs to work and still has a bad taste...

  • art s. hobe sound FL

    Likes: Well we used it and were not sick, so i guess it works.

    Dislikes: The chlorine taste is pretty strong so we add a "lemon powder" so mask the taste. it works...
    It is a bit expensive.
