While the First Need Deluxe Water Purifier is great, I probably wouldn’t recommend it to the serious backpackers. Its rather large and bulky compared to other units. However, its great for the recreational backpacker or long term camper who doesn’t want to spend a huge chunk of change on a great water purifier.
