Katadyn BeFree replacement bag

I have a 3 liter Katadyn BeFree gravity feed water filtration system. I would like to get an additional bag that will also work with the filter. What have others out there found be useful?

@JBG HydraPak makes the 1L Katadyn Bag and the filter fits the HydraPaks:

I like the HydraPak system better than the rest using a Katadyn filter (I add a Sawyer Mini filter https://www.rei.com/product/890900/sawyer-mini-water-filter after the Katadyn filter for extra as well as a charcoal filter https://www.rei.com/product/830346/platypus-gravityworks-carbon-element ) I also have a sleeve that goes on the Katadyn so I essentially have 3 filters plus a charcoal for taste. So far so good. 

Only drawback id the bags taste awful, been trying everyting they say online from denture tabs to lemon but a friend I just hiked with says salt water cleared it right up for him. I need to try that yet. Happy Hiking!
