Yep, I use a prefilter when using my steripen. I may look into a backpacker filter as well for any water heavily-laden with particulates.

I paddled the Connecticut river from South Pittsburg to the Long Island Sound last year and drank filtered River water the whole way with no problems and no worries. I did have a couple of Beers at the Harpoon Brewery in Winsor VT.
Good to know, both about the river water and the Brewery!
