Water Purification Systems and Options

During our Appalachian Trail Thru-hike there will need to be a way to get clean drinking water.  We currently have 2 systems that we turn to for that need.  We have 2 separate filters and those systems are completely different from each other.  However, we are using both from the MSR or Cascade Designs company.  I am not really into the chemicals for purification.  The ultralighters are really into this method because it is LIGHT.  However, there are certain things that I refuse to sacrifice on during this trip.  Just to review a few points about why I am making the decision the way that I am, please check out my video on the options I am going to use on our thru-hike:
