water purifacation

Can any one tell me a good water filter that will be an easy fit in a kayak but give safe water to drink.

I have a katahdin brand water bottle from rei I love. There is a filter built in so just dunk it in the river and screw it together and drink. Very simple. Payed 30 maybe

Small, simple and light. Frequently carry it in a jersey pocket for long bike rides.
