Customer Reviews

  1. very good product Review by Ssg.ccarter

    As a retired Spec Ops Operator this is the best water purification system that I have reviewed on line. The only draw back i see is the amount of water you can get in 60 seconds, I have seen others that do the same and produce up to 2ltrs in 60 seconds. And in an emergency time is everything get the most in the least time, and a back up parte kit should be added.
    However i would love to try one of these MSR MiniWorks EX systems.
