- This is an absolutely great bit of kit for wilderness camping. I bought it as a replacement after giving my original to my son. Basically it enables you to safely take and drink fresh water from mountain streams without having to use nasty tasting sterilising tablets. Instead you simply insert the steripen into a litre of water where it emits an ultra violet light which kills any nasty organisms that might be there, leaving the water tasting clean and pure. I've used it in the Welsh mountains, Dartmoor, the Scottish Highlands, the Pyrenees and the Turkish Kackars. It means you can trek in the wild for days without having to carry a load of heavy water. Brilliant!
- I suppose it's quite expensive initially but, if you're into wilderness treks, well worth it in the long run. (Once bought, the running costs are minimal. It's obviously a good idea to carry a spare set of AA batteries but they don't actually need replacing very often.)
