Water Filters

Any one use or recommend a water filter?
I often run low on propane boiling water.
Picked this Sawyer filter over the Life Straw.
Also use a UV pen for suspect water.

That Platypus is very similar to my set up.
It didn't come with the bladders, made my own.
Usually run solo so didn't need the large bladders.
Planning a trip to Peru so now regret not getting that bigger set up.
Although MEC has those 3 liter bladders cheap.
May have to upgrade.
