Default Survivor Pro filter

Anyone have any experience with the Survivor Pro filter https://www.survivorfilter.com/products/pro-series? It has .01 micron filtering ability and supposedly eliminates harmful viruses from water passed through it. The reviews I've read indicate that the build quality is somewhat flimsy so I'm particularly interested in how well it holds up to usage.

I currently have a Katadyn Pocket filter as well as several Steripens but the Survivor Pro looks like a decent thing to add to my earthquake supplies if it 1) works, and 2) doesn't fall apart immediately under normal usage.

I'd prefer to get the MSR Guardian Purifier but at $350 it's a bit more than I want to spend for something that may never be used.

I have one, works great. Slow pump rate but it is what it is. It's made out of plastic so don't get too crazy working the handle. I got it because of the better filter ability.

Thanks for the inputs on the gravity filters. The Xpor does a lot of things but doesn't filter out viruses which I think will be an issue after an earthquake in San Francisco. The Sawyer Point Zero Two apparently does filter them out so I'll give some thought to that one.

My current plan is to filter water using my Katadyn Pocket filter (.2 micron) into my 5 gallon containers as I use up the water in them. Then add chlorine made up from calcium hypochloride to kill any viruses and bacteria in the water. I figure the water will sit in the containers for several days at a minimum so when I need to drink it the water should be safe. If I'm on the move then I'll just filter the water and then treat it with Polar Pure or UV to kill the small stuff. Or add water to a water bottle strained through a coffee filter, add chemicals or UV it, and then drink it through a Lifestraw, Sawyer Mini filter, or Berkey Sports bottle.

The Survivor Pro still looks enticing to me. Does it look like something that will not fall apart with moderate usage?

Thanks
