Voted 3/5

Took this fliter on a trip to Mt. Whitney. It worked fine for the first 1/2 of the trip then the top of the pump broke. Was able to rig it with superglue but lost most of the pumping power. Like I said the filter worked like a dream until the pump handle broke. To Sweetwater's credit they did replace the unit.
