With the first issue, yes it is ~too hard to squeeze~ but that is not a ~defect~ of the filter. That is just the price to pay for pushing water past a gazillion little fibers in order to trap particulates. I did find that tipping up the small bag helped when drinking directly from the system. But here is the thing, that bag is so small (16oz I think) that you barely get enough water for all the trouble of filling it. So I purchased two 64oz bags and immediately realized they are ~too heavy~ to hold up for direct drinking. They are also too heavy to just sit there bent over and holding them. It puts strain on your back to do so while the pitiful stream of water comes out. It's like the pain of watching water boil. You can try to sit in your camp chair with your water bottle precariously between your feet but this is also a lot of strain on your arms and back to have to hold the contraption for so long.
There is another bag that Sawyer sells that has a handle on it. It's a one gallon bag that you can hang from trees. I WISH I HAD BOUGHT THAT ( https://www.amazon.com/Sawyer-Products-SP108-One-Gallon-Bladder/dp/B06Y2RSTHD/r ). With my contraption, I have wound up using bungee cords to make-shift a harness for the bags so they can drip by gravity. This is the ONLY way to stay sane while filtering your water. (UPDATE: 10-5-18: After some research and close inspection of the bag I see that there are 3....sort of hole-punch-guides on the end of the bag. These are areas where no glue is applied to seal the bag. I didn't have a hole punch, so I drove a 10-penny nail into each of the 3 holes on each side. Then I used some para-cord to fashion a hanging strap. I chose to use all 3 holes from advice online that this would "distribute the weight better over time". This has now made the bag MUCH MUCH EASIER to use as a gravity system. Hang and forget.)
The other issue that people complain about is how difficult it is to fill the bags from a stream. Yes, this is true. I even tried blowing the bags up with air from my mouth. That didn't help at all. I had a simple 1-cup measure in my gear that came to the rescue. I use that to bail water from the stream and pour it into the bag as it sits upright. This is a much more effective system than trying to hold the bag in the stream. I may also get a funnel to help get the water in the bag quicker (UPDATE: 10-6-18: I have added photos of the system I use to fill with. I bought a collapsing silicon funnel ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M4R5HH3 ) and a collapsible cup ( similar: https://www.amazon.com/Ecoart-Silicone-Collapsible-Outdoor-Camping/dp/B01EAHR3OE ) and this makes it very simple to fill from a shallow stream. Simply bail water with your cup into the funnel. I hold the funnel and bag together and rest the bag bottom on the stream bed.)
With all that said, this is still a fine Minimalism water filter system. It's light and compact and for that, you can put up with the quirky glitches in using the system. The back washing syringe is easy enough to use which should bring a great deal of value to the filter over the coming years.
My last filter was a ~pump filter~ where you dropped the plastic line in the stream and pumped into your bottle. That was equally as frustrating. The line would often leap out of the bottle and spray like an angry snake. So, I think these bag filters are the way to go but you HAVE TO use gravity to get the most out of them while expending the least amount of effort. Once I set up the drip-drip-drip, I could sit and watch it peacefully in a relaxed posture.
These are great to use when you have a 2 liter bladder and have the Sawyer set up to allow filtering inline. I have mine set up to allow me to fill my pack up while wearing the bladder. Connect the pouch to the filter, get the inline accessory kit (sold separately),remove the mouth piece from the drinking tube, attach this and bingo bango. You can easily fill a 2 liter bladder without taking your bag off and the bladder out. These are also very useful setting them up on a gravity feed system and having them as a go to spot for a couple of campers.
- SUMMER 2014 UPDATE - CAUTION!!! - Ordered another 3-pack of the 1L pouches. Arriving on 08-Jul-2014, the factory sealed package included 3 pouches, however no screw caps were included. Amazon handled the by sending out a replacement, and giving me a prepaid label for my return shipment.
