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 Perfectly

After a few years using the Sawyer Mini (still a great choice, by the way), I saw this on MSR's site.

What appealed was the immediacy of use. I carry it in a harness pocket and just drop the end of the tube into any semi-suitable water source I come to. The first ten squeezes normally go directly into my mouth, then I top up a water-bottle or two, depending on conditions.

I like the fact that this has a decent pre-filter to keep duck weed, mosquito larvae bits of dead leaf out of the filter mechanism itself.

In camp I always found the Sawyer squeeze bottles awkward to fill. I now use a cheap plastic cycle-style bottle with a large mouth to take 500ml of water in one quick dunk, then take this back to camp and filter it into the pot.

I think this will be my go-to filter for some time.

Anyone want to buy a Sawyer Mini?
