Only used it once but I am pleased with its performance. I had been using a pump filter system but it packed in. The Platypus worked really well, clearing the water quickly, quicker than the pump. It packs away reasonably small, probably as small as the pump system I had been using. Given the choice between the pump system and Platypus Gravity. At time of writing I would choose the gravity. I like the fact there are no moving parts which could break.
