MSR says: The smartest solution to clean water on fast-paced adventures.

Clean water all day—without the weight. That’s the advantage the TrailShot Microfilter provides. Designed to hide in stash pockets and deploy quickly, this tiny water filter lets you drink directly from sources along the trail for instant hydration, and fill your vessels with clean water. Easy one-handed operation filters one liter in a mere 60 seconds, so you can get back on the trail quickly and moving again. At just 142 g (5 oz.), the TrailShot water filter is the ultimate filter for fast-paced, high-mileage adventurers, like trail runners, hikers, fast-packers and mountain bikers.

MSR's Trailshot Microfilter is all about ease of use and convenience, it fits easily into a side pocket on a rucksack and it can be deployed instantly - simply dip the pre-filter end of the tube into the water, remove the cap on the other end and start pumping with one hand. Its easy and takes just a few minutes to filter a litre. When it needs backflushing simply remove the tube and give it a shake.

Works well

We have tested this in the Dales and worked fine supplying all the filtered water for a group of 4 for 2 days. We will test it further on the Colorado trail for 3 weeks. You need to compare this filter with its competitor, the Sawyer Squeeze. The advantage as I see it, is that you don't need the pouches, can dunk the hose straight into the water, squeezes direct into mouth and it is only 8g heavier. Whether it's because the Wharfe water was clear anyway I found the flow rate fine for such a light item.

Great idea, poor performance

Has a really (really) bad flow rate. Haven't even filtered 10 litres of water with it so far. Cleaning it multiple times and back flushing it (according to MSR's instructions) doesn't resolve the problem. Also, the dirty hose comes into contact with the clean side of the filter when handling/storing it if you are not paying attention. If you are looking for a forearm workout, this might be the filter for you though.
