Check out this comment from Backpacker Magazine's March 2006 Gear Guide issue: "We sent the Hiker Pro on the trail with testers who swore they'd never give up their ultralight, fuss-free chemicals. Then they tried this glass-fiber filter and rediscovered the sweet taste of mountain streams sans chemical aftertaste."
