Be mindful that it never freezes. I've had to sleep with it in my bag, and that can lead to it's own problems (wet sleeping bag) if you aren't careful.
The squeeze bags don't last long. They tend to burst near the opening when you're squeezing after a moderate amount of use, even when backflushed frequently. Buy extra bags and send them to yourself if you're thru-hiking.
Manual squeeze filtering of large volumes of water is tedious. I highly recommend getting the inline adapter if you use a hydration bladder. (Posted on 11/9/15)

My Squeeze has traveled with me around the world, from the West Coast Trail in Vancouver, BC to the Manaslu Circuit in Nepal and all points in between. I love this piece of gear and consider it to be an integral part of my kit. (Posted on 7/26/15)
