It is on sale today (1/7/2013) for $25.00 and code SWL12 will get you cheaper shipping! See link below!

SteriPEN’s Traveler mini water purifier kills 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa in a half-liter of water in 48 seconds with a touch of a button.

If you do know your water is clear like coming from a waterfalls or ice melt, then it could be used alone, or you can filter the floaties with a bandana. I do get worried as it uses a special battery (Requires two CR123 disposable lithium batteries), so I make sure to do a test run before I go out and this is why I consider it my secondary option. With a weight of 2.3 ounces, its worth a carry always. It is very easy to use and doesn’t leave your water tasting funky.
