Default Good water filtration?

I'm looking for a good quality water purifier, small, reliable? Any ideas?

A distillery. Something like a moonshine rig. Just without the fermented sugar. Boil water, cool and catch the vapors in a sterile container. Not sure how small you need. Not sure exactly what your situation is. But this is one way.

Search for some of the threads we have already done on this. Depends on whether you want house sized (Big Berkey) or backpackers size http://beprepared.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_WP%20F150_A_name_E_KATADYN®%20H iker™%20Water%20Filter

What c3 said. I've got a Big Berkey for the kitchen and a few Katadyns in the camping gear and bags. What's the application?

Have used a Katydyn for some years when hiking. About the size of a can of tomato soup. 0.3 micron filter, pre-filter, and you can wrap a coffee filter over the pre-filter and get longer filter life. DO shop around, price varies a few bucks place to place- $59.99 is cheapest I have seen.

I have had one of these for roughly 13 yrs. Works great. Mine is the older version with the blue top but its basically the same
