Katadyn Hiker Microfilter 4.2 5 14 14
will fit in my backpack ok haven't tried it out yet. why don't the stores that sell the unit sell the replacement cartridges? February 18, 2015
A hiking "must have" This filter performed excellent. The water is always crystal clear, no bad taste, and best of all, the water was rendered safe to drink. I accidentally left my Nalgene bottle full of filtered pond water after a hiking trip. The water had no odor or evidence of being once pond water when opened months later. A few pointers for those who are worried about durability, performance or cloudy water, etc. Most failures are due to user error, and can easily be overlooked as product faults. As with any activated carbon filter, you MUST run the filter through a few cycles to rid the water of any loose carbon dust. I flushed mine at least 4 large Nalgene bottles worth with water before using the filter to capture clean water. Even if the water is turbid at first, its still safe to drink. Each filtering session will result in clearer water than the last in the beginning. Pumping too hard can break the filter pump mechanism. It may take a bit more time to collect safe water, but pumping slower with a little less effort will lengthen the life of the filter. You will also get better filtering results. The kit comes with additional lubricant for servicing as well. Consider bringing small coffee filters and a rubber band to cover over the weighted inlet. This will keep debris from clogging the inlet and lengthen the life if the filter itself if you happen to be in an area with high algae or underwater plants. Katadyn makes better, more durable filters, for hikers that will be using a filter for long periods of time or to service large groups. This one is not meant for extremely heavy use. The maximum capacity that this will service is 2 hikers per day. The bottle adapter will fit standard Nalgene and Camelbak Bottles. The bag is also big enough to add additional items, such as water iodine tabs for backup in case of emergencies. Also, common sense should dictate any scenario. You should avoid muddy or murky water whenever possible as this type of water will quickly reduce the life of the filter. The only gripe I have is that I wish that the instructions that came with the filter were not made of paper. It would make more sense to be plastic instead as the paper tends to get wet and deteriorates if not stored in a separate bag. January 20, 2015
Water tastes good Tested it out , water is deffenitly drinkable can't wait to try it out camping January 13, 2015
Katydyne water filter Great product! Easy to find at store! OK price. Glad to find it at Dick's because it is located close to home! September 23, 2014
NOT AS EXPECTED Water will have after taste. Carbon particle from filter will pass through into your bottle. September 2, 2014
Below expectation Pros: easy to use, fast pumping, and seems to be durable Cons: internal carbon sediments can pass through easily and there is no filter in this system to prevent that from happening. I thought it was a defective unit, exchange it and the same result with the new one. Test it for yourself: filter water into a glass cup and inspect it yourself. August 27, 2014
Great! This is a great product. We spent 6 days in the wilderness with 2 of these filters and 4 people and used it every day. It is the only way to go in my opinion. I've used other products before, but this is the top of the line. Way to go katadyn. If there is any downside it is that I'll probably need to replace the filter after using it so much. July 29, 2014
A MUST HAVE This item is a fantastic add to any outdoor enthusiast arsenal. Have used it a few dozen times and must say, I am impressed. Easy to pack and pays dividends when needed. Two thumbs up to Katadyn for a well made system. December 25, 2013
The best I've owned I've gone through several camping water filters over the years, and this is the best I've owned. I bought a second one for my son who just began backpacking, so that he could skip the frustration of trying cheaper brands. The Katadyn Hiker does a great job. It sets up quickly and fills a jug in a hurry which is a real plus when you're crouched down by a Pacific Northwest stream in the pouring rain. January 9, 2013
Love! Very easy to assemble and use. Definitely lightweight. I couldn't be happier! October 17, 2012
