We've road-tested the Steripen on a trek around South Asia and on the hills of Assynt and it hasn't let us down yet. If you're going to be trekking in the backwoods, or you're travelling to a country where getting potable water is going to be a problem, this should be the first item in your backpack.
The Steripen rapid purification system will give you four litres of clean drinking water in four minutes.
