Yep, they're brilliant.
Had one for a couple of years now,might need new filter even.
Since they only weigh half a kilo,the weight saving alone on carrying water supplies is fantastic for cycling and hiking.
Hve to store it deep in your pack in sub zero temps though,as the ceramic filter won't take kindly to water expanding in those micro pores.
Worth triple its weight in gold.
And I do believe a local Geordie invented it too
edit...No I'm wrong. I mixed it up with the local Beef Jerky supplier.. Errr. ok..Understandable mistake
