by fromFits standard size widemouth? Not This is lack of truth in adverstising at it's finest. Like the design idea, but don't expect it to fit "most standard widemouth bottles" as it says on the packaging. GSI should be ashamed and re-engineer this or drop their fit claim. If it doesn't fit Nalgene and Camelbak wide-mouth bottles, tell me what room is left for "most", huh? Will be returning for refund immediately, despite the inviting design. Will stick with my no longer available Press-Bot French press which DOES fit a wide-mouth Nalgene.

by fromH2jO! No-Go: Great idea poorly executed Ordered this product online, and immediately tested on a standard Nalgene wide-mouth bottle. As hard as I tried, the threads did not fit at all. When pushed, you can get it a liitle on but crooked. So tried my standard CamelBak wide-mouth bottle. Same result. The packaging claims it "fits most standard wide-mouth bottles". If Nalgeen and Camelbak aren't standard, I don't know what is.Returned for refund today, explained issue and left at counter with sales associate to shop. When I checked out, she had pulled a Nalgene and a Camelbak off the shelf to test my concern -- she got the exact same result and said that it was worthless and would warn anyone who intends to buy one. In my humble opinion, this product does not deserve the privilege of being sold by such a reputable outfit as REI until they fix the execution of their idea.

by fromLeaks badly This is a great idea, executed poorly. It leaks badly on almost every bottle I've tried it on. Sometimes I can REALLY crank down on it, and get a good seal, but not often. It usually leaks significantly when I turn it over to steep my tea, as described in the instructions. The same thing, with threads that actually seal properly, would be an excellent product.

by fromProbably the most useless item brought I have gone on many camping and backpacking trips over the last 5 years and wanted to find a light weight method of making great coffee for myself and fellow scout leaders. From reading the reviews I thought I found what I was looking for, but after trying to use it for the first time, sorry to say, it went into the trash. I din't have the leaking issue with the Nalgene bottle that others wrote about but I thought that it didn't hold enough course grounds to make anything other than brown water. I would recommend to GSI to add its own cover with a built in filter to help pour, since you obviously have to take the filter out of the bottle to pour and then the Nalgene cover was full of grounds. I think I am sticking to my press or the new instant (I know for a coffee afficianado that is just plane wrong)coffee that a major coffee retailer sells.

by fromBottoms up or off Great concept but like anything else it is usless if the bottom keeps falling out. Makes for an unpleasent cup regardless of the coursness of your grind. It worked fine the first couple of times. I put the coffee in a Nalgen added boiling water. placed the filter in the Nalgene and poured a cup. Not so anymore

by fromCan't believe REI is still selling this Hard to believe the 64 per cent favorable review stat for this unusable product. It does not fit any Nalgene or Camelback standard wide mouth bottle, so I can only assume those who like it have a GSI bottle that's tweaked to fit their product. Because of my earlier reviews they've added a disclaimner about mettle bottles -- not something I use in the wilderness.Even the [$] staff agreed with me (see past reviews)and said she would not recommend this product because it doesn't fit, and therefor leaks all the coffee out. Why does REI still carry a defectively designed product?

by fromeh... I just got back from an overnight trip using this item. When I saw it in the store I thought "AWESOME!" and bought it right away. This filter weighs next to nothing and stores right in the bottle you'll use it in, so it's a great idea for minimalist types. In camp, I prepared the coffee as recommended, and even though I don't mind the grit you get from other-than-course-ground coffee, the brewing process was a total rumpus-pain. No matter how hard I screwed this thing on, when I turned the bottle upside down to brew, it was leaking pretty steadily. To make a 24oz bottle of coffee, I lost about 3-4 oz of water around the threads. Cleanup wasn't difficult, just took a bit more water than I would have liked, given I was camped a 500-meter round trip from our water source. The bottle of coffee I made tasted like bung, but I'm sure that had more to do with me not measuring the grounds (just filled it 'til it looked right!). Overall: a decent concept, and compact too. However, the leakiness and the amount of water it took me to clean the filter and the bottle pretty much condemned the H2Jo to a dust-covered and ignored future on the shelf. I'm no coffee snob, so I'll stick with the single serve tea-bag style coffee filter packs.
