Thank you Michael Dax - Re: OR - MSR Ex Miniworks -
- PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group. These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit Moderator.
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via the list or contact me directly.

- Hi Michael,
Nice job on this review. Here are your edits. Once made please repost here and update the HTML version too.
***LOCATION: Old Faithful, WY
EDIT: please spell out the name of the state and ad "USA" for the benefit of our international readers.
Also, I am sorry to say but your bio is over the 100 word limit. Can you please shorten it a bit?
EDIT: please spell it out the first time at least putting the (MSR) in parenthesis. Then you can use MSR for the rest of the review
***Manufacturer's Website: Mountain Safety Research
EDIT: the URL needs to be the actual address, not just hyperlinked
***Listed Height: 7.5 inches (19 cm)
***Listed Width: 2.75 inches (7 cm)
EDIT: what are the actual measurements?
*** At the bottom of the filter, there is a cap that crews on to the part
EDIT: a cap that "screws"
*** The screws of the filter are made to will fit onto a nalgene.
EDITS: The "threads" of the filter are made to will fit onto a "Nalgene" (proper name)
*** There is a chamber that is cylindrical and about an inch and half (3.75 cm) by an inch (2.5 cm )
EDIT: delete extra space in parenthesis
*** The other end has three points that allow three spaces for water to go into the element from the cylindrical chamber. Once the water is pumped into the element, it is filtered through the element and eventually comes out through the spout at the bottom.
Comment: are you sure about this? I believe that the water is forced through the sides of the ceramic element where the filtered water runs out through the bottom valve. The umbrella valve lets water into the main housing correct? This should be why you clean the filter by scrubbing the outside of the element. If it filtered through the center as you describe the element would need to be scrubbed inside.
*** With the carrying case and srubbing pad
***I have owned my MSR Ex Miniworks
MSR MiniWorks EX
