5. A microfilter for purifying water from lakes, streams, and other natural water-sources.
"My MSR has filtered hundreds of gallons of water in its time and continues to work beautifully (with a few filter changes, of course). Modern filters are small and lightweight and will often fit onto a Nalgene bottle. A definite must for anyone planning on more than a day hike."

I've had mine for three years and it literally comes with me wherever I go!
