I'll second that.
I have a Katadyne and a life saver.
The Life saver is very good (it's the 20,000 ltr version), but the beauty of the Katadyne is it's size and the quality and lifespan of the ceramic
(mine's the version shown here
... good for 50,000 ltr if you
keep it clean and maintained and a lot more convenient to carry around with you)
I have never tried the straw type devices but have read some horror stories concerning certain makes ... I will try to dig out the info , it was a
good while ago that i last looked into this but from memory some straws don't deal with water born infections very well).

No... must be thinking of something else, the survival straws seem to get excellent reviews in independent tests.
