"I was given the Hiker Pro water filter as a gift, for emergency and backpacking use. I absolutely love it. It is easy to use, relatively quick, and it doesn't leave the water tasting funny. Provides enough safe and palatable water for for a group of nine in about 15 minutes."
Katadyn Hiker Pro Water Filter
The Katadyn Hiker Pro is perfect for pumping and filtering a supply of water during emergencies and on the trail. It's efficient, light-weight, and reliable. A removable filter protector extends cartridge life in challenging conditions and quick-connect fittings make installation and removal of input and output hoses easy.
This is just what I was looking for! Thanks.
Haven't had luck with my Katadyn filters in the past (both the Hiker and Vario only lasted 1 backpacking trip) but you inspire me to try again! I do love the look and ease!
