Rated 4 out of 5 by happabob Good filteration option for backpacking, but..
Used the Sawyer Personal Water Bottle on a trip to the Quetico in Ontario. Plenty of portaging, fishing, and canoeing means hydrating your body often.
This is the first year we have used any sort of personal water filtration option for this trip. I have to say I was satisfied with the Sawyer's performance in the thick bush of Ontario. However, I found that the bottle would not decompress during drinking. One of my fellow fisherman's Sawyer bottle seemed to function just fine. I was constantly having to release the bottle top for the actual bottle itself to maintain it's previous form. Aside from deformation of the bottle during use, it seemed to function just fine.
The bottle compressing during use and not decompressing is reason enough to knock a star off this otherwise impressive product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Len5742 Not recommended for backpacking
When backpacking I don't cook so, in theory, this bottle seems perfect for meeting my needs. Unfortunately, not the case in actual practice. And practice I have, as I carried this thing for thru-hike of the Arizona Trail, as well as through New Mexico on the Continental Divide Trail. Two months+ of trail time.
Problems seem to stem from the pressure equalization vent thingie in the top of the bottle. I put a Camelbak electrolyte tab in my water. The gas generated by dissolving of the tab seems to force water out the vent and/or the drink tube. If I flip the top open, all of a sudden there's a big blurp of water dumped out on me. OK, so let's say I leave the top off for a few minutes to let the gas out. Not at all convenient, but might be worth the effort if that was the only problem. It's not. As the bottle rides in the pack side pocket, walking causes the water to eventually slosh out. After a few minutes, I feel something wet running down my leg. Not enjoyable. Water is coming out, eventually through the pressure equalizer, is my guess. Once the bottle contents are significantly drawn down, this stops, but that's no solution. Lastly, want to keep your bottle in your sleeping bag overnight, for warmer water that's drinkable in the AM? Be prepared for water to leak out, presumably through the vent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rico Great little filter.
I too brought this with me to Belize. Filtered everything. No illness. However, the lady below commented on her family having a stomach virus and not her. This bottle DOES NOT FILTER VIRUSES!!! Just to be clear. But great for what it's for.
