Liberty Mountain Potable Aqua Plus Tablets
I've used these little guys as both a primary and secondary water purification source. They are ridiculously easy to use and ridiculously easy to pack, which is why I never go anywhere without them in my pack, my first aid kit, my car, etc. Generally I have used them the most when out backpacking and will often use the tablets instead of an actual filter since they are so much smaller and easier. The taste is the only downside. The treated water doesn't generally taste that great, but when I'm out backpacking or climbing I'm thirsty and some funky tasting water tastes just fine to me especially when I know it's clean.

Portable, easy to use & no aftertaste
I used these products while on a recent four day backpacking trip in Newfoundland. What I liked about them: 1.The containers weighed next to nothing. 2.The containers are colour coded & that made it a whole lot easier to remember which one to use. 3.There was zero Iodine taste after using the tablets and the water was clear coloured.
The only issue for some people, particularly if you are only carrying one water bottle, is that you do have to wait 35 minutes in total for the water to be safe to drink. I had 2 water bottles so when I emptied one, I'd refill and add tablets immediately so I never had to wait.

Great for Travel! (Not just for camping)
I use this product extensively while traveling to areas with unsafe drinking water. While most of those traveling will purchase water bottles, I found the tablets to be a great alternative to avoid wasting plastic bottles, avoid the worry of not having drinkable water, avoid many trips to the store to buy more bottles. I could simply fill up a jug, sterilize it with the PA products, neutralize it and have great drinking water in the bottles I brought.

Great backup system!
I have used these on several occasions while camping in the Shenandoah. I always bring them as back ups or if I can't use my steripen. With the neutralizing tablet, you can't taste any of the iodine. I will continue to carry this on every trip for peace of mind.
